Holiday Gift Guide 2023

The holidays are right around the corner, and it’s time to start checking names off the gift list. Well, it’s probably way past when you’d want to start shopping, but we’re not judging, especially because we’ve got all the goods and gear you need to surprise your favorite skiers and riders this season. From our Village shops to our guided sunset tours, there’s plenty of Winter Park for every explorer. Not to mention, we have a brand-new online store this season (check it out here)!

So, grab that list, and a pen, and let’s get to work. 

For the hardcore carver who…

Lives by the motto: “No Pain, No Jane” 

Defined by its world-class terrain and breathtaking views, Mary Jane is as adventurous as the people who seek out its slopes. Give all the dedicated skiers and riders you know the chance to rep their stomping grounds with swag from The Jane Shop. Choose from wearables like hoodies and hats, glassware and mugs, stickers, keychains, and oh-so much more. Maybe throw in a can of Mary Jane Ale as a stocking stuffer. Just an idea.

For the skier/snowboarder who…

Wants one more lap 


You can’t box up fresh tracks or corduroy, but you can give your snow-loving friend an Early Ups Season Pass Add-On. New this year, Early Ups lets folks on the mountain 30 minutes before everyone else which gives them access to all the untouched snow their hearts desire. Basically, it’s the perfect present for powder days.  

Ski by Headlamp 

It’s not over ‘til it’s over, and with Ski by Headlamp, you or your friends get two extra hours of slope time. After 4pm, guests will meet up with a guide, strap on a headlamp, and cruise down the slopes while the sun sets for a one-of-a-kind outing.

Our expert instructors provide a judgment-free, fun environment where all are welcome to develop new skills and discover their passion for winter sports. As the name suggests, this gift is a package deal that includes a half-day group lesson, lift access, and equipment rentals.

For the outdoor enthusiast who… 

Needs a wardrobe refresh 

Hats? Yup. T-shirts? Definitely. Sweatshirts or hoodies? We’ve got both. Our online store (link coming soon!) is stocked up with a wide selection of clothes that’ll keep your friends and family warm and looking pretty cool (if we don’t say so ourselves). In the meantime, stroll through the Village and pop into James and Parry’s or West Portal Outfitters for stylish logo wear. 

For the action-seeker who… 

Wants to keep the good times rolling 

We’ll let you in on a secret: some of the best things to do here happen after 4pm. With activities like Glow Night Tubing, Snowcat & S’mores Tours, Mountaintop Après, and our full schedule of events, there’s never a dull moment at Winter Park. Reserve an evening adventure for friends or family and help them make unforgettable memories.

For the pup lover who… 

Is a big fan of the Winter Park Ski Patrol Dog Team 

We owe a lot to our brave dogs on the Winter Park Ski Patrol Dog Team. These real-life heroes are paving the way for a better experience for all of us out on the mountain. Plus, they’re also super cute. Our plushies are a great gift for dog and mountain lovers of all ages, so head over to James and Parry’s to adopt yours. Might want to hurry, because we’re definitely grabbing a few.

For the person who… 

Has all the gear 

Everyone loves a tune-up, but how long has it been since they’ve sharpened their skills? For intermediate to advanced skiers and riders, 60-Minute Pro Tips is the gift that keeps giving. For just $99, you can reserve your friend or family member a 1:1 session with an expert to go over problem areas, break bad habits, and get more out of their time on the mountain.  

For the mountain fans who… 

Want the full Winter Park experience 

Still looking for something? Get your friends and family a front-row seat to all the holiday happenings at Winter Park with our deals on slopeside lodging. Equal parts cozy and convenient, our lodging is the ideal gift for those who want to immerse themselves in the mountain lifestyle from sunup to sundown.

We might be biased, but …

You really can’t go wrong with a gift from Winter Park whether it’s someone’s new favorite hoodie or a whole weekend of mountain memories. If you’re still looking for inspiration, check out our full activities schedule or browse more of our resort shops.

(And, hey, you could always get them fries from Bradley’s, but only if they share.)
