Book Direct with a local company, they are the area experts and can frequently bundle your savings with connections to other local deals.

Lodging: Book Direct, book early and book local.  Local lodging companies know the territory! If you book directly with a local lodging company, you will avoid third-party fees, while working with people that are members of the community and are best able to accommodate particulars in regards to budget, property specifics, and connections to local specials, in-house and reciprocal discount packages, and current events. Quality lodging companies are expert at taking care of details. At the time of booking your lodging, always ask about any reciprocal deals that they may be able to set up for you concerning the other provisions for your upcoming vacation: lift tickets, equipment rentals, event discounts, etc. Lower rates on lodging are most obtainable during mid-week, non-holiday periods. Consider booking a vacation rental right at the resort.  Though it would seem that ski-in/ski-out properties would be more costly, there are great savings to be had when you have easy access to food and drink at your place of lodging.    

Make advanced bookings—for every component:  from lodging to car rentals, to lift tickets, to gear packages.

Lift Tickets—the reason you’re headed up to Winter Park Resort and Mary Jane during the snow season is to spend some prime time on those legendary ski trails.  When planning ahead, there are methods to save more and ski more.  The two best means of ski vacation savings are to utilize advance online purchasing and to ski multiple days.  Walk-up window rates can cost up to $159 for a day on the slopes.  However, when you make your plans more than a week in advance, you can save up to $35.00 a day, by going to the Winter Park Resort site and purchasing your lift tickets on-line.  Additionally, when you are skiing more than a single day, and who isn’t, your savings are even higher: at least seven days in advance, buy a QuickTrax Card online. Click below for more info on how we can help with lift tickets.  

Gear-up: Snow and recreation in the snow requires lots of equipment.  If you already own all of your own equipment and are coming from out-of-state, check into the possibility of pre-shipping some of your gear to your destination ahead of time.  This is often more cost-effective than the airline over-size bagging fees. Plus, it relieves some of the hassles of travel days, you just need to get yourselves to the land of snow. When renting, online advance equipment and clothing rental is going to save you time, money and stress.  The cost savings could be up to 40%! See below in the “partner company reciprocal budget deals” section
for ways to save up to 25% on ski rentals through Winter Park Lodging Company.  Another popular option for budget-savvy travelers are consignment shops and other used-clothing retailers.

Invest in trip insurance.
You are booking early; life is full of surprises.  Insurance can save you thousands of dollars.  Should illness, an accident, or a host other unexpected misfortune come your way, good travel insurance can help one calamity not erupt into a financial disaster, as well.  Click below to learn more about trip insurance.

Always ask about age-related, job-related, and military discounts that may apply.

Ski resorts often offer college, military, and senior discounts.  Generally, all you need is documentation of your status and you receive a nice discount on lift passes.  If you work in a related industry it could be worth calling ahead and stating your name and business.  They might just offer you a special discount.  If you have a large group, call group sales at any resort and most of the time they will negotiate a price that is fair to you and them.

Local lodging companies will do the same if you book direct with them.  Click below to see what we offer at Winter Park Lodging Company.

Ask about partner company reciprocal budget deals—for lessons, equipment, car rental, etc.

Not only will a local lodging company have the insider information on what the best thing happening is at the time, they will also have connections with other local businesses and provide reciprocating discounts with them. For example, if it’s rafting season, we provide 10% off with the local whitewater rafting outfit.  We provide discounts on everything ranging from outdoor experiences to retail savings in Winter Park and even car rentals!



Take advantage of multi-day lift tickets or passes.

Lift ticket deals exist all the time.

Multi-day pass—flexibility to choose a 2-out-of 3-days pass, or better, ski 7-out-of-10 days pass.  Savings vary and there is a limited inventory of these specially priced tickets.  Winter Park Resort offers discounts to seniors (70 years plus), children, students, and Military.  Notice, those little guys (kids 5 and under) can ski for $10, what a great ski deal!  Also, be on the lookout for “first-timers” deals.  You can often get lessons and learners slopes’ access for reduced pricing.

Passesextended vacations. You have the time, you have the desire—you are ready to spend more than seven days on the slopes.  A season pass is the way to go, even when buying midseason!  Take a look at the Winter Park Resort online site for unlimited lift passes, such as The Rocky Mountain Super Pass Plus (also includes six days at Steamboat) or all Winter Park/Mary Jane Pass for unlimited skiing for the rest of the season. There is a variety of ski options available, some which incorporate lift tickets for other resort areas; and other choices that are spring skiing specific.  For truly savvy savers, look at the upcoming year’s ski season pass in April or May: you will surprise yourself with how budget-friendly a ski pass can be!

Public transportation is most often the lowest cost, or even free.

Amtrak Winter Park Express: this unique experience train ride to Winter Park Resort is available January through March, on weekends.  Tickets range between $39 and $59; though, there are a limited number of early booking discount tickets avail for as low as $29.

Home James Transportation: Denver to Winter Park shuttle company.  Two hour trip in well-equipped shuttle vans.  $70-$100 per adult ticket.  Adjust pricing for groups. Half-price for children.  Deals and specials are often available online. 

Once you are up in Winter Park, the free, fun, and convenient shuttle service at your disposal is The Lift.  This public transportation will get you all around the resort, and the towns of Winter Park and Fraser, with multiple stops and extended hours.  Download the RideHop app.  Use access code: lift.

Stay during mid-week, non-holiday periods.
If you have the luxury of being able to get away during the week you will not only deal with a lower number of people on the slopes and on the roads, you will find lower prices on lodging, activities, and dining.  Most businesses offer great mid-week deals and specials.  At Winter Park Lodging Company our prices average $50-$100 less per night from Sunday through Wednesday.
Fresh Corduroy Winter Park

Mid Week Ski Slopes

Groceries and DIY meals and snack are the cheapest way to go.

Food: For cheap eats, the same tricks apply when on vacation that you practice at home.  Groceries always cost less than restaurants. If you’re coming up from Denver, pick up your food-stuff in the city, it is more economical than in the mountains.  Though, there are several moderately priced grocery stores in town, too.  Liquor stores are going to be significantly cheaper than bar service.  So, stock your vacation kitchen with convenient food and beverage supplies, and have greater control over the budget. There is even a local company, the Grocery Guys, that will shop for you if you’re wanting groceries waiting at your property.  You can still choose those times for indulging in culinary splurges.  Another tip for less money, additional fun, is to ‘pocket pack.’  Whether you put a backpack to work or use your parka’s pockets, there is a lot of portable nourishment that can keep you on the slopes while others are spending prime time and a chunk of change on the slope-side fare. Make it a meal on the go, and you’ll be in the dough!

Check out the free events calendars, before you go and upon arrival.

Activities & Events: Ski towns are vacation towns—they know how to radiate hospitality.  Free events and activities abound: concerts, classes, recreation, and discovery are the standard inviting happenings in Winter Park.  Once you know your travel dates, get online to access the resort, the town, and the Chamber of Commerce’s calendar of events. Check out the Winter Park Resort site for upcoming events on the mountain; and, for the town of Winter Park: .  Your vacation stay may need to be prolonged just to attend the fun and free specials!

Get Creative.

Another popular option for budget-savvy travelers are consignment shops and other used-clothing retailers.  Ski towns generally have great selections of gently used clothing and equipment available in these shops.  For kids that are quickly out-growing their garb, this is an especially appealing option. This last budget-smart option may present major savings but is relationship specific. Should you have friends or family living in Colorado, have a look at end-of-season bargains on equipment at the rental shops.  Pick up a pair of skis, boots, a snowboard, at incredible mark-down prices.Then, have your friend or family member store that equipment for your yearly trip.  A fun possibility–you and the friend go in together on a high-end pair of skis, and the friend can ski on them during times when you’re not using them.  We have a few friend groups for which this has actually been a wise financial success.  It saves the vacationers money and rental worries, and the keeper of the goods gets some time on shared equipment that may offer different thrills than their primary equipment.  The idea has been tested— it is worth consideration.

Living The HGTV Dream

I’m not a big one for pinning my hopes on scratch cards or life changing lottery wins, but there’s something about the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway that lures me in every year.   Seriously, I’m going on 10 years of entering my email into that magic box every morning like a well trained puppy!

As with most Dream Home groupies, I enjoy losing myself in the fantasy world of what it would be like to live in such a home, in such an incredible location.

Well, now you can test out one of those fantasies, even if your name isn’t necessarily on the deed!

That’s right the 2007 HGTV Dream Home, based in none other than Winter Park, is now part of our luxury home rental program and available to rent this winter.

An alluring blend of rustic mountain architecture and unique and charming interior design, Mary Jane’s Dream Home certainly lives up to its coveted title; but what really stands out about this home, is its innate livability and warmth.

Upon entering the home, you’ll be in awe of the grand beam construction throughout the home, yet find yourself immediately at ease and immersed in the warm hues and plush, welcoming décor.

As you explore the home, you’ll find yourself unable to stop yourself from sinking into an inviting sofa, or doing a quick Goldilocks mattress-bounce on a bed or two along the way.   As the kids charge through the lower level, claiming their bunk and reveling in having their very own movie den and wet bar, you’ll no doubt find each of your adult guests on one of the many private balconies, gazing out at the breathtaking surroundings and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

hgtv dream home winter parkWith multiple lounging areas and four sumptuous bedrooms to relax in, there are plenty of little hideaways when you need some downtime, but vacationing with friends and family is all about sharing experiences, and the social center of Mary Jane’s Dream Home has to be the fabulous main level.

Complete with a cozy lounge with fireplace and huge picture window framing the winter wonderland outside, super cool kitchen (with ample room for multiple chefs!) and large dining table to gather and enjoy a home cooked feast, when it’s time to bring everyone together, Mary Jane’s Dream Home delivers.

A ski vacation is one of the most fulfilling, fun and memorable experiences you can have, but getting all details in order can be a daunting experience.  Worry not, the reservation team at Winter Park Lodging Company are here to help with their top ten tips to stretch your dollars, keep you smiling and make the most out of your next Winter Park ski vacation.

HOme page top picture#1    Book Early

All seasoned skiers know that there is one golden rule when organizing a ski vacation…to get the best deal on lift tickets, equipment rentals and accommodation, you’ve got to book early.  Sure, there’s a chance you might get lucky and find a last minute deal on lodging, but you’ll more than likely end up paying premium rates for your airplane flight, ski lift tickets & ski/snowboard rentals…and spend the better part of your first morning standing in a line for the privilege.  When you book early, you don’t just get great deals, you can also move on from the booking process and start enjoying all the fun stuff: checking out local activities, events, restaurants, ski trail routes etc.

#2     make a list of your accommodation needs

The beauty of working with a local vacation rental company, is that you gain access to a vast pool of lodging options that can cater to most budgets and criteria of potential guests.  Before you begin your search for accommodation in Winter Park, talk to all of your group members and write down a list of your needs and desires.  Top of the bill is of course dates, location, occupancy/sleeping arrangements, type of home (condo/townhome/stand-alone); but don’t forget to write down your additional preferences:  do you want a second living room, or den for the kids?  would you like a pet friendly home?  do you want a private hot tub, washer/dryer, sauna?  how many cars do you need to fit in the garage/driveway?  The bigger the list, the better your reservation specialist can help you find your perfect vacation home.

 Man Doing Sit-ups ca. 2002#3  get in shape before you go

Skiing at 10,000 ft + is no joke, so getting a little body conditioning under your belt before your trip will really help you make the most of your time on the Winter Park slopes.    There are a lot of free a ski conditioning work outs available online, and committing to a few work outs a week, at least a month prior to your trip, will really make a difference to your balance, strength, and endurance on ‘the hill’.


#4    see if there is a free host guide service

Many ski resorts employ mountain hosts to be on hand to answer any questions, and even lead ski tours on the mountain.  For example, Winter Park Resort offers free, 2 hour mountain orientation tours, departing daily at 10:30am and 1pm.  Taking a tour with a mountain host isn’t just a great way to get a feel for the trail system, it’s also a chance to ask a local expert about the best restaurants, events, must see view points, and is well worth signing up for.

Winter Park ski school#5   Book a lesson

Whether you are a first time skier, need a refresher, or want to fine tune your established skills, a lesson is always a good idea.  As ski equipment continues to evolve and develop, so too do ski techniques and styles.  A quick lesson will set you on the right path for a successful ski vacation.


#6    Plan on taking a day away from the slopes

Yes, we know, you came to the mountains to ski.  But a day away from the slopes will give your skiing muscles a well deserved day off, and let you discover more of the local area and the attractions it has to offer.  Check out our list of discounted local activities and start planning that new snowy adventure.

winter park, a family friendly resort#7   invest in a good layering system

Having the right layering system can make the difference between a fantastic day on the slopes and a terrible day on the slopes.  Choosing ski specific under layers made of natural fibers (such as wool) will wick any moisture away from your body when you are working up a sweat, and provide warmth and comfort when the temps are dropping.  A breathable mid-layer will provide wind resistance, and your outerwear will keep you dry.  All manner of color, shapes and styles are out there to tempt you, but when you find your perfect layering system, you’ll never let it go.

#8    Pocket snacks

Mountain dining is pricey, and while we quite agree that having a burger at lunch is a wonderfully gratifying reward, keeping a stash of pocket snacks on hand will reduce your idle spending, and give you that little boost of energy throughout the day without breaking the bank.  Some of our favorites are nuts, energy chews, dried fruit and…wait for it…beef jerky.

Always hydrate in winter park#9   Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

The town of Winter park sits at 9,100 ft, and during your day on the mountain, you could regularly be whizzing up as high as 11,200 ft.  Although most people only experience mild reactions to vacationing at this altitude  (shortness of breath, blocked sinuses, mild head ache), some may experience a more severe reaction (High Altitude Sickness) which is a serious condition that requires medical attention.  Our number one tip for acclimatizing to the Winter Park elevation is to DRINK LOTS OF WATER, limit caffeinated/alcoholic beverages, and take it easy on your first day on the slopes.


#10   don’t be afraid to ask

The beauty of working with a local company when booking your ski vacation, is that they tend to have all kinds of connections within the local community.  Here at Winter Park Lodging Company, we have given suggestions for the perfect place to propose, provided a surprise birthday cake at an overseas relative’s request, loaned sleds to properties with ‘the perfect hill’, and a whole lot more.  If you have queries or needs during your stay, don’t be afraid to pick up the phone; we’ll always do our best to try to help.

The Mission: Plan 3 full days of activities, for two people, for under $100!

Sounds like a tall order I know, but we’re excited to give it a go.  My friends (Ellie & Joe) are coming to visit this July 12th – 14th, and so for the sake of argument, we’ll use that particular weekend as our testing ground.

Day 1: Thursday 12th July

Mtn Moon Yoga Pose with mountainsActivity 1: Yoga in Hideaway Park, 12 noon – 1 PM, FREE

The peaceful Fraser River Trail follows the meandering river to the town of Fraser and pops out by the Fishing Ponds near Safeway.  When you get to Fraser, check out the Walk Through History Park and take a peek in the Kurtak Art Gallery & Winter Park Winery.  To complete the loop and get back to Winter Park, add a little fun and play the frisbe disk golf course through Grand Park.

Activity 3: Dance the night away at High Note Thursday, FREE
A great way to end the day is to head to Hideaway Park and watch the sun set over the mountains, while enjoying live music care of High Note Thursday.  Check out the High Note Thursday line up this summer.

Activity 1: Take a day trip to Grand Lake.  Canoe rental, $20

It’s only a 45 minute drive from Winter Park to Grand Lake and well worth the effort.  Top picks for things to do in Grand Lake are: hike around Monarch Lake (quintessential rocky mountain scenery), check out the stores along the board walk, and go for a canoe around one of the lakes.   The dates of Ellie & Joe’s trip also happen to coincide with the Grand Lake Antique & Classic Boat Show, a free event where enthusiasts show off their prize possessions.

Activity 2: Eco Road Show & Carriage Rides At Cooper Creek Square, FREE

Back in Winter Park, the Eco Road Show (art, puppets, magicians & live music) is keeping the crowds entertained all day long in Cooper Creek Square.  We’ll plan on heading back from Grand Lake in time to enjoy some of the show and also take advantage of a free horse-drawn carriage ride around the mall.

CheersFriendsDrinksActivity 4: Happy Hour!  FREE
As part of Ellie & Joe’s SolShine lodging special with Winter Park Lodging Company, they get a Happy Hour Voucher with their stay (worth two drinks & an appetizer) to enjoy at participating local restaurants.

Activity 5: SolShine Music Festival, FREE

SolShine Music Festival presents Quinn Sullivan & The Nevilles, live at Hideaway Park.  This free concert at Winter Park’s favorite outdoor venue is a perfect way to end three day thrifty trip.

Day 3 Budget Breakdown:
hike + canoe + boat show + eco show + carriage ride + happy hour + the nevilles & quinn sullivan = $20

The Results

So there you have it, after 3 days and 15 activities, Ellie & Joe will have only spent $64.80.   Being thrifty sure can be fun!
