Winter Park is a magical vacation destination for lovers of all things outdoors. However, it can be a little overwhelming when you’re setting out to plan your vacation and you’re trying to figure out what you need to do to prepare. That’s why our vacation experts have compiled a brief list of insider Winter Park tips that will help you get the most out of your time in Winter Park. Read on below for more details!
Take the Free Shuttle and Save on Transportation Costs
Winter Park’s free shuttle, The Lift, not only takes passengers to the ski resort, but also as far as Fraser and Granby. It also beats having to drive your personal vehicle over treacherous mountain passes, especially during the popular ski season. Just download the RIDEHOP app and you can see exactly when The Lift will arrive at your stop. The Lift is a great way to save money on transportation during your stay in our Winter Park rentals.
Prepare Yourself for the High Altitude
Winter Park sits an elevation of over 9,000 feet and you can reach elevations of over 11,000 feet at the ski resort. This means that visitors will have to watch out for things like altitude sickness. It also helps to get in shape for at least a month before your trip so that you’ll have more strength and endurance while on the slopes. You’ll want to drink lots of fluids while you’re here, but keep your alcohol consumption to a minimum. Keeping snacks in your pocket can also help greatly. Most importantly, give your body time to acclimate to the altitude before tackling challenging runs like those in the Mary Jane territory.
Invest in Proper Ski Clothing
If you decide to visit Winter Park during the winter season, you’ll learn firsthand just how cold it can get. Don’t get caught in the cold without proper layers! You’ll want ski-specific clothing, such as underlayers with natural fibers like wool to wick away moisture while keeping you warm, a breathable mid-layer for wind resistance, and outerwear that will keep you dry.
