The Seven Territories of Winter Park Resort

Winter Park Territory – More time together. More space to yourself.

Winter Park Territory at Winter Park Resort has a little something for everyone. With its groomers and long cruisers, it’s perfect for families who want to stay together. Parents can venture out on their own and take on a more challenging diamond or two while the kids are in the renowned ski school. #WinterParkTerritory

Vasquez Ridge Territory – More off-the-beaten-path trails. More off-the-charts powder stashes.

If you’re looking for a brief escape from civilization, you’ll love Vasquez Ridge Territory. This intermediate and advanced terrain is the definition of off the beaten path and offers some of the most persistent powder stashes on the mountain. #VasquezRidgeTerritory

Parsenn Bowl TerritoryMore room to breathe so you can enjoy the breathtaking views.

With its majestic 360-degree views, Parsenn Bowl Territory offers gorgeous scenery, which goes great with the wide-open bowl skiing and friendly intermediate ski trails.

Terrain Park Territory - More pipe. More jumps. More “Did you see that?”

Proof that jumps, jibs and rails are for everyone. The entire park system features an 18ft halfpipe and more than 80 other innovative progressive features that Winter Park is always reconfiguring to enhance your—and their own—creativity on the slopes, making their half-dozen parks an easy start for beginners and a challenging test for experts, but only after earning their way into Dark Territory. #TerrainParkTerritory

Mary Jane TerritoryMore bumps. More trees. There’s only one Mary Jane.

The legendary lady has been known for her world-class bumps and tree skiing for generations. Long, bumpy and unabashedly challenging—but with plenty of blues to help you chill out when you need to—Mary Jane is an authentic Colorado experience that’ll push your limits and make you feel like a local, no matter where you’re from.

Eagle Wind Territory – Feel more out of bounds while staying well within bounds.

The side-country-like terrain of Eagle Wind Territory is an exhilarating experience. Winding through a beautiful challenging forest and ending in gorgeous glades, Eagle Wind Territory makes you feel closer to the natural beauty of the mountain, perhaps more than anywhere else at the resort. #EagleWindTerritory

The Cirque Territory – More steeps. More chutes. More stories to tell.

The Cirque at Winter Park Resort is the most challenging terrain. But now with the Cirque Sled, getting to the top just got a little easier. The Cirque may not be very forgiving, but it will give you plenty more stories to tell. #CirqueTerritory

It also offers specialty packages for advanced skiers like the Steep & Deep and Bob’s Mogul camps, as well as highly trained private guides so you can explore more and access the mountain before anyone else.

Non-skiing Activities

Just because you’re not a skier doesn’t mean you can’t experience the high of a chairlift ride! Foot passengers can take a scenic ride up the Zephyr Express chairlift to The Lodge at Sunspot. Access times are limited. Foot-passenger tickets are available at the Winter Park Resort Balcony House ticket windows or Guest Services desk. Enjoy lunch at The Lodge at Sunspot before you ride the lift back down.
