Naturally, people come to vacation in Winter Park because they have heard about the skiing slopes. Maybe you’ve heard about Mary Jane bumps or the five interconnected mountains with their amazing skiing trails. If that’s all you’ve heard about skiing in Winter Park, then you’ll be pleasantly surprised to know there’s a lot more on these mountains to make your skiing the thrilling winter adventure you always want it to be. For starters, there’s a record snowfall every year. This region is blessed with about 350 inches of powder snow during the winter months. Then there are the terrain parks. Here you can choose from six terrain parks as well as a very difficult terrain called Dark Territory. The name can give you an idea of the difficulty level such terrain has. Generally speaking, skiing in Winter Park is a wholesome experience that you should really look forward to.
Hot Air Ballooning
When it’s not snowing, and the wind is not blowing, the weather is usually mild enough to allow hot air balloons to soar high, carrying tourists who like to see things from a different angle. The first thing you will see are the Rockies. These ancient mountains reveal their majestic expanse to the naked eye from high up in the sky. Then you realize that this is the exact view that an eagle sees every day of its life. And because the hot air balloons are just like any other gravity-challenging aero-vehicle, they are piloted by FAA commercial pilots. This means you’re in safe hands. Your tour starts with a group photo, followed by a glass of champagne to celebrate the moment, then it’s up, up and away. Another air adventure to remember.
OK, this one is not for everyone. You really have to be passionate about your fishing to want to drill a hole in the ice and bring a chair and sit. Huddled around each hole is an angler who takes their sport seriously. Because under the thick blanket of ice are the lakes, and during the winter months, the Colorado trout don’t sleep. They’re hungry and they swim under your feet looking for a free lunch. If you’re patient enough, (as an avid angler, patience is your middle name) you will hook that huge trout and gain bragging rights at the bar. The Grand Lake Chamber of Commerce holds ice fishing contests every winter and they have a map of the best destinations to find the fish you seek.
