Summer Inspiration

for THE BEST visit to Winter Park!

Summer Inspiration

There's something for everyone!

FOR THE LOW KEY ADVENTURERS

Rent a cruiser bike from a downtown bike shop and enjoy the paved Fraser River Trail that runs from Fraser to Winter Park Resort.  It's absolutely beautiful, there are lots of places to stop along the way and if you get weary, just hop on a The Lift, our free local shuttle conveniently equipped with bike racks on the front.

Want to veer off the paved trail?  With over 600 miles of trails in Winter Park, we are Mountain Bike Capital USA™and there's so much to explore! Our local bike shops and the Information Center in downtown Winter Park can give you tips, advice and trail maps!

After enjoying the Fraser River trail you'll be ready for lunch, we recommend a place where you can sit outside and enjoy the scenery. Many of our resort and downtown restaurants boast patios with a  killer view! 


Have a  Rocky Mountain National Park day!

Veer north to Rocky Mountain National Park, the drive is beautiful,  you can take a ranger-led hike to learn more about the park or visit the Holzwarth historic district located just 7.5 miles north of the Grand Lake entrance.  If you enjoy live performances enjoy a show at the Rocky Mountain Repertory Theater (reservations required).  Check out the Kauffman House Museum or the Historic Self Guided Walking Tour.  Granby Ranch offers scenic chairlift rides during bike park operation hours!

Experience Colorado’s longest alpine slide, human maze, climbing wall, mini golf, chairlift, plus more fun at Winter Park Resort.   

And then in the evening… get in some bowling or a blockbuster at the Foundry Cinema & Bowl, featuring handmade wood-fired pizza, and… wait for it... leather reclining seats and in-theater meal service. Yum!

FOR THE ADRENALINE SEEKERS

Check out our downhill bike parks! Bike Granby Ranch was created to provide an incredible outdoor experience in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.
