Christmas in the Colorado Rockies
That is Santa in the photo looking at all the Colorado ski resorts to find the one with the most snow to bring his sled down into Colorado. WOW and Behold he has seen that Winter Park receives the most snow of all destination resorts in Colorado so Santa will be visiting our humble little ski hill here in Winter Park, Colorado.
We are all gearing up for the visit. Santa should be in town in time for the Winter Park Resort Torchlight Parade that will be happening at Winter Park Resort on Christmas eve. He will then head out to deliver all his presents for the children of the world. I’m sure that he will make a return visit sometime to the resort on Christmas day. Look for him out and about at The Winter park Village.
For all you adult children there is lots to do Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Sunspot will be open and they will be offering a five course fine dining menu (I think this is last years menu so check back) and they will also offer a buffet perfect for those families with kids. There are a variety of items to choose from including carved meats, chicken, fish, vegetables, potatoes, salads, fresh-baked breads and desserts. Both dining options have a set price which includes your Zephyr gondola ride, non-alcoholic beverages and meal. Alcohol, specialty coffee beverages, gratuity and sales tax will be additional. Children 10 and under pricing available.
For Sunspot reservations call 970-726-1446.
Not wanting to head all the way up the hill then stay around the Winter Park Village for some Christmas caroling and hanging out by the fires. The Cheeky Monk and Lime will serve up a fantastic beer or cocktail to get you in the holiday spirit.
You are certain to have a white Christmas here in Winter Park, Colorado so come up lets make some lasting Santa memories for all you kids out there!
