Skiers and riders can now get four of the state’s marquee mountains with the Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus, on sale now for the 2013-14 season. The pass includes Copper Mountain, Steamboat, Winter Park, and for the first time, Monarch Mountain for a total of 9,308 acres and a combined total of 109 feet of snow each year.
If you’re ready for spring and neglected to purchase a season pass this year, then not to worry. For those who love warmer weather, sunny skies, great snow, and saving money, Winter Park has three great spring pass deals over the course of March and April.
As snow stacked up at Colorado ski resorts recently, skiers and snowboarders renewed their devotion to the state’s signature sports. Absolving doubts that variable conditions were keeping skiers involved in other pursuits, Colorado Ski Country USA resorts were greeted with booming weekend traffic. The onslaught of new snow along with the opening of more terrain and a broad menu of creative deals from resorts made it hard for skiers and riders to stay indoors last week.

When we arrived back at our condo after a fun day on Winter Park’s slopes, I stopped and marveled. Our front entryway looked like a bomb had gone off and the carnage was an onslaught of gloves, boots, helmets and jackets.

Skiing Winter Park has been a long time and coming—10 years to be exact. My husband donned his first set of skis as an 11-year-old at Winter Park’s slopes and since moving to Colorado it has been on my bucket list.
Athletes Set New Records at The National Sports Center for the Disabled 25th Annual Winter Park Open
The National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) recently wrapped up its 25th Annual Winter Park Open last week at Winter Park Resort. This year, 74 athletes from nine countries, including the US, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Iceland, Chile, Australia, Canada and Great Britain came to compete for spots on the US National or Paralympic National team.
Like a big present waiting under the tree, Winter Park visitors awoke Christmas morning to the resort’s newest jewel, the Coca-Cola® Tubing Hill, which opens for the 2012/2013 season today.
Colorado’s newest tubing hill features four separate lanes with banked curves ensuring fun for all ages and an enclosed conveyor lift that whisks riders back to the top of the hill for another run. Tickets can be purchased at the Vintage Hotel and are good for a full hour. Just because the ski slopes close for the day doesn’t mean the snow riding has to stop, as the Coca-Cola® Tubing Hill will be open from 11:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.
