      Winter Park Resort has been Colorado’s and North America’s favorite mountain playground for 80 years. It’s no wonder that USA Today readers named Winter Park Resort North America’s #1 Ski Resort, two years running. And Elevation Outdoors solidified Winter Park as Colorado’s Top Adventure Town…year round. Public accolades aside, Winter Park is a special place, and there are endless reasons why:

      Winter Park opened in 1940, making it the longest continuously operating ski resort in Colorado

      Creative naming may not have been Winter Park’s founders’ claim to fame, but recreational foresight certainly was. Denver Parks and Recs pioneers started Winter Park more than 80 years ago as Denver’s “winter park.”

      Tucked along the west side of the Continental Divide, Winter Park is just 67 miles from Denver, making it the closest major ski area to the city.

      On average, Winter Park receives more than 313 inches of snow annually and has the most consistent snow season after season.

      Winter Park’s base sits at 9,000 feet above sea level. The resort’s chairlifts take you up another 3,060 feet, putting the summit at 12,060 feet.
