Snow Reports, Venture Out, Winter

Eagle Wind is Open!

New snowfall means Winter Park is ushering in the new year in the best way! The mountain received 14 inches over the last five days, with an additional five forecasted over the next 10 days. That means turns are deep and the smiles are wide here at Winter Park.

Snow

Powder has been piling up since December 25 and will continue on and off through early next week. This weekend will bring sunshine but the potential for some additional snow will linger through Monday, keeping the slopes refreshed. Conditions this weekend will be some of the best yet this season thanks to the recent snowfall. The mountain has 129% of the average season snowfall to date, so don’t miss the fantastic early January conditions. Ullr has been good to us this season and here’s to the trend continuing in 2020.

Ski and Ride

The recent openings of Eagle Wind and the Halfpipe means even more skiable terrain and plenty of opportunities to try something new. Terrain off the Panoramic, Eagle Wind and Challenger lifts is skiing well. For some serious shredding, hit Medicine Man or Little Raven. For a more intermediate run, try Lonesome Whistle. Wondering where those trails are? Check out the trail map here. Wherever you find yourself taking turns, the snow will be soft and fresh. If you are tempted to take a few more days away from the office and continue your holidays, this is the week to do so! Stay slopeside for easy access to all the freshies. Lock in your stay for 2020 this week and save 20%.

Events

Come meet Parry, the avalanche-safety mascot, every Saturday from 3:30-5:00 pm. Join Parry and friends from Ski and Ride School as they parade through the Winter Park Village. Beginning at 3 pm, dance along to family-friendly music at the gazebo as the DJ welcomes Parry and the parade to the party. A face painter and other entertainment will join us each week, and free hot chocolate will be available while supplies last.

It’s never too early to start planning for some relaxation! Take advantage of Winter Park’s Mountain Yoga Retreat to unwind and focus on yourself and your practice in the serenity of the Rockies. This three-day retreat offers four instructor-led practices, including a sunrise session at 11,000 feet, as well as a snowcat tour and refreshments. The first event begins on January 31! Pass holders will receive a discounted rate so be sure to book you retreat now for a unique yoga experience.
