Winter Park is most known for world class skiing at Winter Park Ski Resort, Colorado’s longest continually running ski area offering over 3,000 acres of diverse terrain for experts and novices alike. Other winter activities include ice skating, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and snow tubing.
Winter Park's hype doesn't fizzle out after winter. It's also known as the mountain bike capital of the world with over 40 miles of downhill mountain bike trails at Trestle Bike Park. The summers also boast music festivals at the Rendezvous Event Center, cross country biking, hiking and fishing.
Downtown Winter Park features an array of dining options with something for everyone. If shopping is more your thing, check out the shops at Cooper Creek Square. Clear your palette at one of the local breweries, distilleries or wine bars.
