Winter Park is a small town (with a population of less than 700) located in Grand County, Colorado. The main reason that people visit this town is because of the ski resort that is located in town.

The Winter Park Resort is one of the largest ski resorts in Colorado, and is located about an hour and a half northwest of Denver. Winter park has two different areas, Winter Park and Mary Jane. The Winter Park side of the mountain is filled with mainly blues and greens (with occasional blacks), many if which are groomed often. The Mary Jane part of the resort is for expert skiers and riders, as the runs for the most part are blacks, being very steep and bumpy. Winter Park averages around 350 inches of snowfall per year, and generally has one of the deepest bases in Colorado (aside from the resorts down south).
