Summer Activities

Winter Park is known for its skiing but is also a summer playground for the outdoor enthusiasts who love hiking, biking, horseback riding, rafting, fishing, golfing, zip lining, alpine slide, hot air balloon rides, to name a few activities.

Winter Park does summer sensationally.
If you have been to Winter Park during the ski season but haven’t been here during summer, we hate to say it but you’re missing out!

When the snow-capped peaks melt away to flowing rivers and lush valleys, one will forget that Winter Park is best known for its skiing. Spend some time in our summer playground and those of you who are outdoor enthusiasts will be grinning ear to ear more than once each day. We bet you will be in for a pleasant surprise if you choose to visit Colorado’s favorite Playground in the summertime.

Besides outdoor recreation, there are over 200 events throughout the valley in the summer, primarily from mid-June through September. Be sure to check out our complete Events Calendar for details on each and every event.
