“Columbine Lake hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Very enjoyable hike. About 6 miles out and back; moderate hike. There were still a few wildflowers in very late August. We got a very early start, hiking through forests but coming into pretty meadows along the way. We were beside a stream most of the way. Apparently you can see moose sometimes but we weren't so lucky. Columbine Lake was very scenic with impressive mountains surrounding the lake.

“Alpine slide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We had a family(kids, grandkids etc) trip to Grand Lake, to visit our sister for her 50th birthday. The alpine slide and all the different activities that were included in the day pass were a terrific way to spend a day. My mother who is 74 went down the alpine slide 5 times. Fun was had by all, and can't say thanks enough to the team at winter park. The grandchildren loved the bungee jumper and the staff was very patient with them. Loved this place!!

“Zoppe the Italian Circus at Winter Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I appreciate the resort CEO making this happen again this year for Colorado. The Zoppe Circus was amazing. We attended the last show offered this season and were amazed and awed. I am so excited to see them again next year. The value is great and the circus fun original and genuine. The cast were all so talented and magical.

“Alpine Slide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This was a great way to spend the day! Highly recommend the day pass for the summer fun! The Alpine slide was FANTASTIC and our entire family rode it throughout the day! You cna take advantage of the trampolines, mini-golf, gyroscope, zip line (best for younger children) and a sight seeing chair lift. The restaurant on top of the ski hill has great views but I wouldn't waste the money on the food there. The ski village had great eateries to take advantage of!!

“Summer fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We bought morning passes for our group of 4, and had a great time. The alpine slide was so much fun. Our goals was to not use the brake on the way down, none of us succeeded in that, but was fun trying! The pass also included the human race, mini golf, gyroxtreme, a leaps and bounds bungee, and a climbing wall. All of the activities you could do as many times as you wanted. We had a great time and was a perfect way to spend a few hours.
