7 Reasons Winter Park Resort is the best ski resort in Colorado

No. 1
Ski Train

The Winter Park Express returned this ski season, 2016/17 Ski Season, to the Winter Park Resort. The ski train runs weekends and holidays from Union Station Downtown Denver to the Winter Park Resort. This alone makes Winter Park Ski Resort the best ski resort in Colorado.

Amtrak manages this Ski Train transportation service. The Ski Train departs Denver’s Union Station at 7:00 am and arrives at Winter Park Resort at approximately 9:00 am. The return trip leaves the Winter Park Resort at 4:30 pm and arrives back in Denver at Union Station at approximately 6:40 pm.

No. 2
Mary Jane

I’ve used this analogy before. Mary Jane is the Wicked Step Sister of the Winter Park Resort; you’ll find this side of Winter Park Resort loaded with bumps, trees, diamonds and at the end of the day you’ll be sore and glad you picked us as the best ski resort in Colorado.

Look for stickers around town declaring the wickedness that is Mary Jane.
“No Pain, No Jane!”
“Don’t groom the Jane. – God”

No. 3
The National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD)

Based out of Winter Park Resort and Sports Authority Field in Denver, The National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) helps thousands of disabled children and adults get on the snow and learn more about themselves and sports each year.

Since 1970 the NSCD has provided ski lessons to those in need.

The NSCD mission statement “We enable the human spirit through therapeutic sports and recreation.”.

This  makes Winter Park Resort the Best Ski Resort in Colorado. Choose Winter Park Resort and indirectly help the NSCD.

No. 4
Off I70

If you’ve ever been skiing in Colorado, you’ll know about the parking lot they call I70 West of Denver.
Skip this scene and take exit 232 to Winter Park, Colorado. You’ll be skiing while your friends are sitting on I70 on their way to other resorts.

No. 5
Winter Park and The Seven Terrain Parks!

Yup! Seven Terrain Parks! Think Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, only more fun.
