“Ghost town in Oct/Nov”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I would love to come back here to cycle or ski! I did a little cycling from Vintage Hotel to Winter Park. Nice easy trail, 3mi. Looks like great places to rent.

“Everything to everyone - except the ritziest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

This resort has incredible snow, great prices, every type of terrain and none of the traffic you get at the other resorts. It has the best massage (Kamie F), the best restaurants (Hecks and Tabernash Tavern), very kid, dog and people friendly...I could just go one. It even still has free parking available - which is hard to find these days. Seriously, if you are looking for the Beaver Creek Bachelor Gulch experience, you'll struggle here, but everyone else will love it.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Want world class skiing without world class idiots? This Denver favorite offers great skiing without all of the pompous people that invade more well-known resorts like Vail, Aspen, and Breckenridge.

“Summer Action at Winter Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Had a great time with my son (14) for a quick 1/2 day break from a business trip. Plenty to do and Winter Park staff was very helpful and friendly.

“The last unpretentious ski town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Winter Park is great, winter, summer, it's just great. It still has that small town feel, the people are nice, and you never feel like you have to dress up to ski or for dinner. Close to Denver yet far away, if you are only going to visit one place in the Colorado Rockies you should make it Winter Park. Be aware, just because it's not as stuck up as other areas doesn't make it much cheaper.
