Winter Park/Fraser

Not surprisingly, Winter Park and the Fraser Valley are known for their cold-weather playgrounds famous among winter sports enthusiasts. From the family-friendly powder skiing and backcountry challenges of the nearly 3,000 skiable acres of Winter Park Resort to guided snowmobile tours up the Continental Divide, sleigh rides, snowshoeing, tubing and dog sledding, Winter Park and the surrounding valley truly are a Winter Wonderland.

What you may not know is that the fun doesn't stop when the weather gets warmer. Summertime brings fully bloomed wildflowers dotting lush green meadows with fragrant splashes of color, pristine rushing rivers and clear blue Colorado mountain skies. With over 600 miles of trails as well as steep backcountry climbs, fair-weather friends will relish their outdoor experiences in this haven for summertime hikers, bikers, fishers, and horseback riders. Also, for the music enthusiast, there are outdoor music events and festivals featuring local and national artists nearly every week all summer long. Check our events calendar regularly for the most up-to-date festival and event information.
