When is the best time of year for skiing Winter Park Resort up here in the Colorado Rockies you may be asking? Or what is the snowfall averages in December at the base.

There are your facts to help you with your decision as to when you should be heading up to Winter Park. If you want a little editorializing, my favorite time to ski at the Park is all of March and April. The last few years we have had awesome snow and weather in April and there is nothing more fun than being on the slopes with fresh powder blue skies all in a light jacket.
All that being said, a bad day on the slopes is better than a great day at the office or maybe I have an incurable skiing addiction.
