This has to be the best deal anywhere. What a place to carve big wide turns and get lots of vitamin D. Perhaps once Elk Meadows gets sold they can partner in order to give both areas maximum variety. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I skied there Monday to Friday last February and I never shared a chair with anyone save for my son when he happened to be doing the same runs. It was straight onto the lifts each and every time. By 2 in the afternoon I had had the equivalent of 2 days of skiing at most places. Once you get use to zero crowds it is hard to think of skiing any other way.

Also don't forget the recently awarded a Silver Eagle Award for its Excellence in Visual Impact based on the efforts taken to address the mountain pine beetle’s impact in the Cooper Creek and Vasquez Ridge area of the resort, Winter Park Resort is consistently hailed for sharing its best in preserving both the ecology and beauty of Colorado's favorite ski resort.
