Looking to spend turkey day Thanksgiving, up in the high country of Colorado? Well look no further for in Winter Park, Colorado Thanksgiving is a dream come true.
A Thanksgiving getaway throws some vacationers and skiers off because there is a choice to be made between turkey, skiing and football. Well, you can have it all ways at Winter Park Resort and Devil’s Thumb Ranch.
The best of both worlds is to dig into a turkey and the trimmings in ski country after a good day on the snow. Thanksgiving will fall just four days before a full moon, so if you dine someplace with a view and the sky is clear, you may get the bonus of silvery snow and mountain-scapes bathed in moonbeams.
Sunspot, pictured above with a full moon, offers a dazzling spread of all that is Thanksgiving. Take a gondola ride up the Winter Park slopes and get million dollar views of the continental divide and the Fraser Valley.
At the Ranch House Restaurant just 10 min up the road at Devil’s Thumb Ranch a traditional Thanksgiving dinner can be expected with a modern twist. The Ranch House is a 1930 original homestead with stunning views of the Indian Peaks Wilderness. The food here is exquisite and will be the talk of future Thanksgiving for years to come.
One option for visitors who can’t miss Thanksgiving Day football is to have dinner delivered to their condo. Or make a trip to City Market or Safeway and make up your Thanksgiving meal as you would at home.
