Winter Park Resort 2016 Summer Opening

Come see what the buzz is all about and check out Winter Park Resort’s opening weekend June 11th, 2016.

WPR is one of the oldest operating ski resorts in the state and summertime turns the renowned snowy slopes to miles of green resplendent with wildflowers. Scenery aside, mountains of fun abound for every member of the family.

Winter Park Resort Summer Activities

You could easily spend an entire day at Winter Park Resort and want to come back for more. Some of our favorite family fun activities include:

  • An alpine slide
  • A putting range
  • A bouncy snowcat
  • A climbing wall
  • A human maze
  • A Gyroextreme
  • Disc Golf
  • Scenic chairlift rides
  • Mary Jane mineral panning
  • Leaps and Bounds bungee jump

Hiking, Biking & Dining

For adrenaline junkies the downhill Trestle Bike park offers miles of features from tables and rails to log jumps. Colorado’s longest alpine slide, similar to a bobsled ride, has 3,000 vertical feet of fun that takes you back to the base village. New this year, the Green Horn-it! Bike park is perfect for beginners wanting to hone their skill for Trestle – kid appropriate.

The Ute trail is a beautiful, albeit steep, hike that makes a winding climb to the top where you can find refreshments and snacks at the Mercantile at Sunspot. Hike back down for a quad burner or purchase a ticket for the Zephyr Express chairlift and take in the views on your return.

The Village is home to numerous shops and restaurants so you can pick up a souvenir and follow it with a yummy lunch.

Get a Deal on Activities!

If you think you are going to want to do all of the activities more than once – and most people want to do the alpine slide a lot! – purchase the All Day Adventure Pass, starting at $47 for pre-booking online or $79 at the window.

For the best deal, the Winter Park Visitor Center in downtown Winter Park (on the corner of U.S. Hwy 40 and Rendezvous Road, across from McDonald’s) sells them for $10 less than the Resort. The five minute detour to check out the charming town of Winter Park is worth it!

Get on up here and Play! Once open, the summer season fun will last until September 25th, 2016.
