Winter Activities at Winter Park
World-class Skiing and Snowboarding
This location is all in its name. Winter Park is a winter lover’s dream. Although Winter Park doesn’t only offer winter activities, there’s a definite draw for snow lovers and winter sports enthusiasts. Of course, Winter Park wouldn’t be a favorite Colorado destination without its close proximity to world-class ski and snowboarding resorts. In fact, the Winter Park Resort shares a name with its beloved town and is the oldest continually operated ski area in the entire state. With over 3,000 acres of varying terrain, 50 lifts, and virtually no lines, there’s fun to be had on the slopes, whether you’re a novice or expert.
Of course, the world-class ski resort at Winter Park isn’t the only way to partake in winter fun. From classic snowshoeing to ice skating, there are tons of ways to have fun in the snow. Love to get the most out of the snowy slopes on the back of a recreational vehicle? Snowmobile enthusiasts can rejoice in a terrain that’s both enchanting and exhilarating. Enjoy pristine mountain top views whether you’re on the back of your steel steed or atop a pair of skis.
Summer Activities at Winter Park
Is your life incomplete without a spring and summer spent on pristine golf courses? You’re in luck. Lakota is a mere 15 minutes away from four championship golf courses. Between the peaks of Grand Lake and Winter Park, the lovely green include...
- Pole Creek Golf Club
- Grand Elk Golf Club
- Grand Lake Golf Course
- Granby Ranch
...all of which are only a short drive between one and the next. That means you can easily spend an entire day on the courses.
Of course, a great Colorado destination wouldn’t be complete without glistening lakes. Thankfully, Winter Park is home to three lakes a short distance from Lakota. In fact, Grand County has more water than any other county in Colorado. Spend a morning fishing while the water’s calm, a day participating in a Winter Park regatta, or an evening with your fellow yacht club members viewing the Colorado sunset.
