Snow is falling, lights are twinkling, and there’s magic in the air here at Winter Park. This holiday season, we’ve got lots of exciting events planned, so you and your crew can get your fill of winter wonderland adventure. Take a look at our activity guide and get ready to spread some cheer at 9,000 feet.
Holiday Tree Lighting – Nov 25
Come kick off the holiday season with us at our Holiday Tree Lighting. Take your picture with Santa, sing along to holiday classics performed by the Beverly Bells, and watch as our tree illuminates the Village. After the event, stop by any evening during the season to snap festive photos with the tree.
Keep the Good Times Rolling
Some of the best things to do at Winter Park happen after the lifts stop spinning. At 4pm, swap out your ski boots for snow boots and step out for a full night of fun from live music on the mountain to Glow Night Ice Skating and more. Find your Evening Encore.
Venture Out Fest – Dec 2
Whether you’re up to try something new, or down to kick back around a bonfire, Venture Out Fest has a full lineup of events for every explorer. Join us on Saturday, Dec 2 for a day of free mountain adventures, a live concert, and more.
Reindeer in the Village – Dec 10 + 17
‘Tis the season for snow, reindeer, and some great family photos. On Sunday Dec 10 and 17, stop by the Village from 11am-5pm to meet two of Santa’s reindeer, take pictures in his sleigh, and feel the spirit of the season. Afterward, head over to Goody’s for a delicious cup of cocoa and check a few people off your gift list at James and Parry’s.
Drink Hot Cocoa at Hill House
After a few runs on the Tubing Hill, there’s nothing like warming up with the best hot chocolate in town. Hill House has a variety of specialty cocoa drinks that bring the holidays right to your taste buds.
Torchlight Parade – Dec 24
Celebrate the holiday with a full day of fun at Winter Park. Take your picture with Santa in the Village, enjoy specialty hot cocoa from Bradley’s, and then make your way over to the base for the big event. Sit back and watch as our skiers illuminate the night beneath a fireworks show for a one-of-a-kind holiday celebration.
Happy New Year – Dec 31
We love après any old time, but it feels extra special on New Year’s Eve. Close out the year with a day on the slopes, and then head into the Village for a warm meal and a toast to 2024. Try the sprightly cocktails at Derailer, local beers from Colorado Pours, or grab a seat at Doc’s for some comfort food and whiskey flights. If you’re still feeling festive, visit Downtown Winter Park for a silent disco and sledding at Rendezvous Event Center from 7-9pm.
