The summer is almost gone here in Winter Park and those trying to squeeze all the fun that could be had spent this labor day up at the Winter Park Resort. Pond skimming was the test of the day with 2 x 8 boards placed on floats for those brave enough to try biking across the pond. Speed and balance, speed and balance, dough….don’t let that tire get off the board. What a way to send off summer. Winter Park Village was crowded with thrill seekers and gawkers alike hoping to get the last little bit of summer fun.
The biking is not through up here in the high country with Trestle Bike Park open weekend the next three weeks. The cross country biking should be good into early October, depending when we get that first snow here in Winter Park.
But Labor day has come and is about gone taking Lady Summer with her. Fall is here with wonderful colors and the ushering in of glorious winter. This Labor Day could not have had better weather for pond skimming. Slight breezes with sunshine and blue skies and highs around 70 degrees, a great labor day indeed.
Winter Park Lodging Company wishes all a happy labor day and we hope the day was spent doing anything but labor. So lets wish Ms. summer goodbye till next tear and hope Father Winter brings lots of dreamy white snow soon.
Only 72 days until Winter Park Resort opens for ski season. Let the countdown begin.
