Why not take a Colorado ski vacation in Winter Park? With an average snowfall of 351 inches, a vibrant village life and a plethora of winter activities like dog sledding, ice skating and snowmobiling, Winter Park is a fun place to spend a Colorado sk

PRLog - Dec. 30, 2009 - WINTER PARK, Colo. -- In the heart of the Rocky Mountains, at the end of the historic Moffat tunnel railroad, nestled next to Rocky Mountain National Park, tucked inside acres of the Arapaho National Forest and situated just an hour from the Denver International Airport, lies Winter Park -- one of the top destinations for a Colorado ski vacation. Winter Park is legendary for its ski country and backcountry trails, in addition to unparalleled panoramic views of mountain peaks, wildflower and lakes full of trophy trout fishing. It's long been boasted at "Colorado's favorite ski area," heralded by locals for its affordable prices, convenient location, rustic lodging and vibrant village life, characterized by one-of-a-kind restaurants, lively pubs with dancing and music, and quaint antique shops.

Obviously, skiing or snowboarding is paramount to any Colorado ski vacation. With 365 inches of snow last season and an average snowfall of 351 inches, the powder never diminishes! The 134 trails are well-groomed and wide, making it an ideal place for beginners to start. Advanced snowbirds can navigate black diamond courses, moguls, hidden huts, ridges, the terrain park or forest trails. The resort consists of three mountain peaks – Winter Park, Vasquez Ridge and (the more difficult) Mary Jane, which all share a common lift ticket.
In all, there are close to 3,000 acres, accessible by 24 chair lifts with 5.1 miles being the longest run.

Yet for those who want not only a Colorado ski vacation but a little bit of adventure too, there's snowmobile tours, hot Sulphur springs, dog sled racing, ice fishing, snowshoeing, tubing, horse-drawn sleigh rides, hot air balloon excursions, and ice skating too. Travelers who've had their fill of the great outdoors and are looking for something more artsy will enjoy the local cinema, the live music at the Village pubs or some of the activities in Fraser Valley. There's the Cozen' Ranch Museum, the Pioneer Village Museum, Mountain Moon Yoga classes, the Fraser Sports Complex and the Grand Theatre Co. One of the best ways to see the full beauty of Fraser Valley is to hop on the Ski Train at Winter Park, which will take passengers on a scenic journey under the Continental Divide, through South Boulder Canyon, over Hell Hill, up Giant's Ladder, through Roosevelt National Forest and through the Rockies, past Stanley Lake and into Denver.

The best way to book a Colorado ski vacation is by looking into some of the package deals. The best Colorado ski vacation lodging offers packages that include accommodations, meals, lessons, equipment rental, lift tickets, transportation and other activities all for one convenient price.
