Spring has Sprung!

Now’s the time for Winter Park Fun!

Spring has Sprung!

The first day of Spring has come and the weather has been beautiful in the mountains! We are expecting lots of Spring snow and sun in Winter Park, Colorado! Here are our Top 5 Spring Activities in Colorado’s favorite® Playground:


Find great deals at local shops around town! There are tons of Spring Specials happening now in Winter Park! If you’ve had your eye on a new snowboard jacket or pair of skis, it’s time to check out the sales rack in time for great Spring Skiing and an awesome new setup for next year! Check out our local stores.

Snow Tubing:

Now that the nights are staying light longer, you can hit up the tubing hill after the slopes for a fun evening activity the whole family will love! Tubing is also a great sunny day, off-slope activity for those that came along for the ski trip, but don’t actually ski!


Spring Fishing can be some of the best fishing of the year! With the waters warming after the long Colorado Winter, insects begin buzzing and fish feeding. Contact one of our local fishing outfitters to find the best locations to get a bite or head out on a guided tour with some local professionals! 

Hot Air Balloon Rides:

Warmer temps and Sunny days are the perfect opportunity to fly high above the Fraser Valley by balloon! Enjoy a new perspective of Winter Park and Rocky Mountain National Park while also checking this awesome experience off your Bucket List read more here.

Spring Skiing & Snowboarding:

The season is not over yet and Spring is one of our favorite times to take some turns on a sunny, bluebird day! Meet some new friends at one of the local on-hill watering holes and catch some sun-rays. There is “beach” seating at several Winter Park locations, check them out!


Springtopia and Spring Splash at Winter Park Resort:

We couldn’t compile a list of our Favorite Spring Fun without adding the end of the season Party at Winter Park Resort, Springtopia! On April 22nd, Michael Franti & Spearhead will be playing a FREE Concert at the base of Winter Park Resort to celebrate another incredible season in Colorado’s favorite Playground! Stick around on April 23rd, for the Monster Energy Spring Splash, a tradition celebrating its 49th year, where spectators watch skiers and riders struggle through obstacles on the Larry Sale trail race course and attempt to skim across an icy pond to reach the finish line and post a time.
