Spend 4 Winter-ful Days in Winter Park

Enjoy your nice long weekend!

When you first arrive, check into your new home for the next few days. Once you’re settled in, stop by a ski shop to pick up any gear you will need, so you don’t have to worry about it for the rest of your stay

Day 1

8:00 a.m. Wake up and get moving so you can hit the slopes early. Make sure to grab a hot breakfast first so you’re fueled up for your day!

9:00 a.m. Choose the resort you want to conquer (Ski Granby Ranch or Winter Park Resort/Mary Jane) and enjoy a full day of skiing/riding. Our slopes are some of the top slopes around. And better yet? There aren’t nearly as many crowds.

3:00 p.m. If you’re finished skiing in time, plan to attend a happy hour to finish out your day. Happy Hour is usually sometime between 3-6, so find a happy hour locale for great food and drink specials.

6:00 p.m. If you aren’t full from your happy hour snacking, find a great local place for dinner before heading back to your hotel for a nice soak in the hot tub.

Day 2

8:00 a.m. Good Morning Sunshine! Skiing and Snowboarding might be what Winter Park is known for, but today, take a snowmobile tour along the Continental Divide. Take in the gorgeous scenery, and enjoy the adrenaline rush!

12:00 p.m. Get out of the cold, and head indoors for a lunch break. Find anything from hot sandwiches to soups and more at our favorite lunch stops.

1:00 p.m. Connect with your inner child and spend the afternoon tubing at one of our local tubing hills. With six different adventures to choose from, there’s plenty of tubing to keep you busy all afternoon!

4:00 p.m. Spend the late afternoon ice skating at one of our local ice skating rinks. If you are skating in the village, it’s easy to take a break for dinner when you’re ready.

8:00 p.m. Check our online event calendar or stop by the Visitor Center in Downtown Winter Park to find a place with live music to round out your evening.

Day 3

9:30 a.m. Take a lazy day! Enjoy a more relaxed start to the morning by sleeping in and then heading into town to get a leisurely breakfast.

11:00 a.m. After breakfast, walk around and do some shopping along Main Street, Cooper Creek Square or the Village at Winter Park Resort. Don’t forget to stop in at the art galleries in town to take in some of our local masterpieces. If you’re hungry, you’ll pass plenty of lunch options while you’re shopping and browsing art galleries.

1:30 p.m. Make your way over the Grand Park Recreation Center. In addition to standard work out equipment, they have a climbing wall, a swimming pool, a water slide, a hot tub, an indoor track, and basketball courts. With plenty of options to keep the group entertained for a few hours, it’s the perfect way to escape a cold day.

4:00 p.m. The perfect ending to a laid back day? How about pizza and a movie? Visit the Foundry, a local bowling, dining and cinema location that provides good old fashioned fun to end your day.

Day 4

8:00 a.m. After breakfast, try something you haven’t done before like nordic skiing, hot air balloon rides or dog sledding. If your feeling bold, get in touch with a company that offers guided backcountry ski/ride trips. Whatever you choose make it an experience you won’t soon forget!

12:00 p.m. Find a great local place for lunch. Perhaps Asian, Indian or even Italian food if you haven’t tried some around here yet.

1:00 p.m. Head back outdoors for a somewhat romantic experience: A horse-drawn-sleigh ride! Enjoy the ride while you sip on hot cocoa under a cozy blanket in the cool winter air.

4:00 p.m. Head indoors to warm up before finding a place to eat some dinner. For your last night out, choose a dinning spot on a local ranch or find one with a stellar view of the mountains.

7:00 p.m. If you choose to stay overnight to head home in the morning, spend the evening soaking in the hot tub or getting a massage before heading to bed.
