How do I get to Sunspot? From the parking garage, take a short stroll through the Village at Winter Park Resort, check in with our base host at the Zephyr Express Gondola.
What is your dress code? Mountain Casual – Jeans and sweaters are acceptable. We recommend dressing for warmth and comfort. The fifteen minute gondola ride is in an enclosed cabin, but the cabin is not heated. Once you arrive to the top of the mountain, you do walk across the snow so appropriate footwear is recommended.
