Work Where You Vacation
Nothing gets you through a long day of work like motivation. With all our places to stay in Winter Park equipped with high-speed Wi-Fi, you can set your work space up wherever you’d like, though we strongly encourage you to choose a picture window with the mountains to serve as live art for your viewing pleasure. Glancing above your computer screen to catch a glimpse of the whispering pines atop the bustling mountain will no doubt recharge your batteries. With deep breath and therapeutic sigh of appreciation, you’ll be ready to snap back to it because you know when the work is done, the playing begins.
Winter Park has everything you need to make the most of every single day. Start the day off right with a visit to one of our favorite local restaurants, Carvers. Specializing in classic American dishes and Southwest breakfast items, what they’re really known for are their amazing cinnamon rolls. Grab one to go and head to Hideaway Park for some amazing views and a stroll, jog, or bike ride on Fraser River Trail, a paved 5-mile trail that reaches from Fraser to Winter Park Resort. Come back to the park after your workday to take advantage of seasonal festivals, year-round fire rings, and if it’s winter, grab a sled (provided by the city for free) to coast down the slick hill.
Speaking of winter, you’ll love all the adventures waiting for you should you choose to work from home in the colder months of the Rocky Mountain range. Get yourself a pass that allows you to hit the slopes of Winter Park Resort any and every day, even if it’s just to cool off after a long workday. To make the “work to play transition” even easier, check out our ski-on ski-off rentals that will continue to keep your daily commute down to nothing! Stretch your legs on some of the epic snowshoe and cross-country ski trails or slow your pace even more by booking a horse-drawn sleigh ride.
If you decide to work from home during the warmer months of the year, you won’t believe how easy it is to recreate right from your front door. With over 3,000 acres of wilderness playground at your disposal, the only dilemma is deciding HOW you want to go. Grab your mountain bike and explore the trail levels suited to riders of all levels, from shuttling to the top of the mountain and coasting down or pushing the limits on tough terrain with significant elevation gain. The same can be said for the hiking trails, though rest assured that whatever route you choose, you’ll be rewarded with beautiful sights like wildflower meadows, quivering aspen trees, and wildlife in leaps and bounds. Another great way to take advantage of the area is by water, be it renting a kayak for a chill day on the lake or treating yourself to a weekend adventure of whitewater rafting the Colorado River.
