Experience Winter Park As An Insider

Vacationing in Winter Park is great, but if you choose to vacation as a Winter Park Insider, your experience will be even better. Take advantage of 30% off lodging, lift tickets, rentals, and lessons. Plus get free experiences, like a moonlit snowshoe tour, and daytime ski bike tour. Here’s a sneak peek at what your winter getaway could look like as an Insider.  

WEDNESDAY  

Afternoon: 

It’s the start of your ski trip and it’s hard to contain your excitement. As you drive over Berthoud Pass, you can see Parry’s Peak, frosted in a fresh coat of snow, growing bigger and bigger. The butterflies in your stomach only get stronger as you turn the final corner and the Winter Park Resort sign comes into view. Once you arrive, put on your Insider’s beanie (we’ll mail you one before you arrive!), check into your hotel, then stroll through the Village to take in the sights and maybe snap a few photos in the Village postcards!

Evening: 

After your trip over the pass, you’ve probably worked up an appetite which means it’s time to grab dinner. As an Insider, you’ll get 10% off at select restaurants, both on and off mountain! We’d recommend walking over to Doc’s Roadhouse in the village to fill up on delicious BBQ (including a truly tasty smoked BBQ jackfruit vegetarian option). Trust us, you’ll want to fuel up for your upcoming day of mountain adventure.

THURSDAY 

Morning: 

Start out the day with an exclusive Insider perk! Rip down perfectly crafted corduroy or slash fresh, untouched powder before anyone else.

For those of you traveling on different days, you can also use your early access on Tuesdays!

By the time lifts open, you’ll be ready for a break. Stop into Moffat Market and grab a hearty breakfast. Pair that with a cup of Joe and you’ll be re-energized for an afternoon of skiing. Did we mention that Insiders get 10% of Winter Park Resort food outlets?

Midday: 

Once you’ve refueled, it’s time to head back out and hit the slopes. If you’re looking to take things slow after your busy morning, take a warmup lap down Cranmer for long, smooth turns.
