Winter Park Skiing
The Winter Park skiing resort is part of many that inhabit the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. It is popular among holiday-makers, particular people looking for a great ski holiday. With the 1.7 million acres of the Arapaho National Forest on its doorstep, Winter Park affords stunning panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.
The best way to enjoy this landscape is by booking a ski break. With 2,700 acres of ski runs available and a peak of 12,000 feet, Winter Park is frequented by skiers of varying skill sets. Although it is often seen as an 'experts' resort' (over half of the runs are rated as challenging or difficult), it hosts the National Sports Centre for the Disabled and is always accommodating to beginners.
If you are looking for a ski holiday in the winter of 2011-2012, Expedia can help you book a great ski package. You can browse through our offers or search destinations, and arrange the trip that suits you. Getting to the resort is easy: although the popular Ski Train service ended in 2009, there is a shuttle that can transport tourists from Denver Airport to Winter Park. For those that prefer to hire a car, Expedia offers a great range of rental car schemes.
When you're out on the mountains, don't forget to try the Rainbow Cut but make sure you avoid the trees! As well as some other great runs, such as Belle Fourche and the Trestle, Winter Park offers a fantastic après-ski experience with bars and restaurants offering all kinds of cuisine - the ideal way to relax after an exhausting workout on the slopes!
