If you need a getaway with the family that includes a breath of fresh mountain air, Winter Park may be just the place. Whether you come for winter sports or something else, you’ll find something to keep the whole family busy and entertained throughout your stay on your getaway to Winter Park.
Hot Air Balloon Ride
Sail high above the snow-capped mountains on a family hot air balloon ride with Grand Adventure. They offer private flights that take you around the Winter Park Fraser Valley area, including the Continental Divide, Rocky Mountain National Park, and the Fraser River. Flights take off at sunrise, but the beautiful Colorado landscape and bird’s eye view of wildlife in their natural habitat is worth dragging the kids out of bed for the early start. There will also be a toast to celebrate after landing.
There are many ski resorts and slopes to keep you busy. Ride the chair lift to the top of the mountain and ski down together. If it’s been a while since you’ve been on the slopes, a lesson might be in order. Private lessons are available, as well as small group lessons from many companies. Most lessons include gear rental, and some even include lift tickets, but you’ll want to make sure the tickets are included before you book.
There are hundreds of trails that take you around the scenic landscape of Winter Park and the surrounding area. From easy hikes with little elevation change to hikes that will challenge even the most experienced hiker, you’ll find a trail that’s right for you and your family. Some trails are, bike, equestrian, and even dog friendly.
See more of Colorado with a train ride on an old-time steam or diesel locomotive. The Georgetown Loop Railroad is only about 45 minutes from Winter Park, and it brings Colorado’s scenery and history to life in a way the whole family will love. The loop is only 3.1 miles long but climbs 640 feet over mountainous terrain.
