New Year’s Eve is the last big hurrah of your year, so it makes sense that you’ve got a stressful quandary when it comes to deciding where to celebrate. This time make your way to one of our comfortable vacation rental homes for an unforgettable Winter Park New Years.
The most popular winter activity here in Winter Park, and for good reason, is skiing and snowboarding down the powdery slopes. There are trails for people at any skill level, from beginners to experts, and the Colorado winter always makes for a great skiing season with plenty of fresh snow. All of our ski-on/ski-off properties have easy access to the slopes, so you’ll be able to spend hours out there!
A neat twist on skiing down the mountain is tubing down it instead! Rent a snow tube from the Fraser Tubing Hill (free with price of admission) and partner up to slide down the hill together. You won’t wear yourself out from climbing back up, either, as there is a lift available to use there.
For younger folks in the group, but still fun for everyone, there’s snowshoeing to be done down the hiking trails found all over the Winter Park area. Snow is exciting to young and old, and you may even find yourself down on the kid’s level, building snowmen together and making snow angels. Then head back to your rental to drink hot cocoa in front of the fire for a chance to warm up, chat, and cuddle. Now that is winter bliss!
Fishers can enjoy their hobby at any one of the many lakes or creeks in the surrounding Winter Park area. Head down to Lake Granby for some old-school ice fishing or wade out into the streams of Muddy Creek or Fraser River to try out the fly-fishing. Maybe you’ll bring home some rainbow trout for dinner!
A great local tip is to make sure your vacation lasts through a Wednesday, because Happy hour on Wednesdays at Creekside Eatery in Fraser includes “Whiskey, Wings, and Wine.” This combination of food and drink is so pleasing to the palate, it’s hailed all over Winter Park as the best happy hour you can go to!
