Winter Park / Mary Jane Resort

The Winter Park and Fraser Valley ski scene is a bit different than some in Colorado. As some would say, they're fueled by hot cocoa, rather than adrenalin. That warm feeling and laid back attitude seems to pervade the entire valley. That's not to say it can't get intense. Winter Park's Mary Jane, Parsenn Bowl, and Vasquez Cirque are certainly proof to that.

Four Peaks to Ski!

More than a social competition, skiing these mountains is about reaching a personal best. After all, such challenges are between you and the mountain. The people of the area are friendly and unpretentious—the vistas are majestic and exquisite. Development of these mountains has been outstanding and the natural resources have been well protected. No level of skier has been left out. Lifts have been designed to make it fun and easy to get around, and the quality of the snow is exactly what people have come to expect of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The development happened in a unique fashion. The separate, connected mountains have two different types of terrain and skill levels. East Mountain is for beginners and their progression to intermediate skiers. West Mountain is for intermediate skiers and their progression to advanced abilities. It provides a separate learner's area as well, a display of their commitment to the safety and enjoyment of all their guests. The ski patrol and instructors are all paid professionals. Colorado's exceptional ski environment draws the best pros, so you'll be in good hands the whole time. Learn more about the skiing potential of the area with Ski Experience and Snowboarding Zone.

Off the Slopes

Aprés ski and nightlife are also laid back; while singles can enjoy the area, it's geared more toward a wholesome, family ski vacation experience. They're at least as proud of their lemon-aid as they are of their margaritas. That doesn't mean you won't find dancing and pubs, just that, like the rest of the attitude in the valley, it's a bit more laid back and casual. Non-skiers enjoy snowshoeing, snowcat, and snowmobile tours, shopping, and mountaintop dining in the magnificent Lodge at Sunsport. Either resort will offer both down-home meals and gourmet cuisine. The Fraser Valley is a very special place, stands out even amongst all of the great resorts in Colorado. Perhaps that's because, in some ways, it feels like home. Close to Denver, awesome snow and great ski trails, and a warm down-home vibe.

Getting Here

Getting here is easy—it is one of the very closest ski resorts to Denver, just take I-70 to Highway 40. Situated south and a slightly west of Rocky Mountain National Park, it's easy to fly into Denver International Airport and be on the slopes that same day.
