Your guide to Winter Park
This small mountain town consistently earns high praise from winter sports enthusiasts for its more than 3,000 acres of well-groomed slopes and powder stashes spread over seven separate ski areas. Its location in the Rocky Mountains positions it for more than 300 inches of prime powder each year; the runs are designed for skiers of all levels, making Winter Park the perfect place to go with the whole family or a group of friends. Even if skiing isn’t at the top of your list, other winter activities like snowshoeing, tubing, and snowcat tours provide plenty of options. Plus a new scenic gondola lets you take in the panoramic views.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Winter Park?
Winter Park shines during the snowy season. Skiing usually starts at the beginning of November, and the slopes can stay open until mid-April. The coldest month is January, with an average high temperature of 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The best time to visit is in March and early April, when some of the last, but best, snow drifts in and the days are sunnier and warmer (dependably in the mid-40s). Late spring is humid and chilly, and rain turns the snow to slush. The warmest month is July, when temperatures can reach 80 degrees. Fall is a splendid time of year to visit, thanks to brilliant red and yellow foliage, pleasant weather, and fewer crowds.

The ride up offers a bird’s-eye view of ski runs and tree canopies. At the summit, you’re greeted by panoramic views of the Continental Divide and Fraser Valley, as well as access to hiking trails, lookouts, and a variety of ski runs.
