Family Friendly Thumbs Up
Winter Park Resort continues to receive praise and recognition in national surveys and travel press polls.
Last month we were happy to boast Winter Park’s #6 ranking in the World Press Journal’s ‘Top 10 Authentic Small Towns Of North America’; and this month Winter Park takes the podium in 3rd Place in The World Property Journal’s ‘Top 10 US Ski Spots’.
Also this month, we get the nod of approval from Skinet.com with an overall ranking of 15th place for Skinet.com’s ‘2015 Top Ranked Ski Resorts’ poll, and #10 rankings in ‘Best Terrain Park’ and ‘Most Kid-Friendly’ categories.
Here’s a snap shot of some of the survey comments:
Best Terrain Park “The greatest strengths of the resort are its variety of terrain and terrain parks.’ “The moguls and terrain park are top-notch.” “Great beginner terrain park.”
Most Kid Friendly “Super kid-friendly.” “Winter Park is a great place for a family ski vacation.” “Fabulous for the family.” “Very family-friendly.”
A Kid Friendly Destination
Winter Park Resort has long been recognized as a kid friendly ski destination, with a multitude of terrain that can test or boost confidence. But let’s not forget the great steps have been taken to cater to families off of the slopes too.
With ice skating, tubing, mini rail jams, and kid-specific evening
adventure clubs, Winter Park Resort has a firm focus on family both on and off of the slopes.
Downtown Winter Park also encourages fun for all ages, with special winter offerings that include a FREE mini sledding hill in Hideaway Park (with a stocked supply of sleds & saucers), FREE horse drawn carriage rides around Cooper Creek Square (every Saturday, from 3 pm – 6 pm), and FREE ice-skating rink in Cooper Creek Square (rent your skates from nearby Christy Sports).
