Town of Winter Park & Slopes

Winter Park Resort Opening Day

There is snow on the ground and on the slopes in Winter Park.  Winter Park Resort opens Wednesday November 18th and there should be plenty of snow for opening day.  The mid mountain depth right now is 16 inches of the fluffy white stuff.  Check Winter Park Resorts snow report for the latest on the powder.  This should be a great year for snow with the El Nino weather pattern bringing more moisture to the Winter Park area and slightly warmer temperatures.

Lots of changes in Winter Park for the 2009/2010 ski season.  The Village now has four restaurants and two shops.  In the Village will be The Cheeky Monk, Lime, The Back Bowl Soup Company, and Goody’s.  Stores so far are The Shirt off my back and Powder Addiction/Grand Adventures.

The fore-cast for the next week calls for snow on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

On Wednesday Winter Park launches its 70th season, making it the longest continually running resort in Colorado.

With 70 years under their belt Winter Park says they have opening day figured out.  Here’s what’s going on at the Park:

Start your day off with .70 cent Pancakes at Doc’s Roadhouse and then enjoy a .70 cent fountain drink on all Coke products.

Stop by the prize tent from 7:30am to 11:00am for lift ticket giveaways, a live broadcast, and your “5 minutes of fame” with an on-air interview!

Ski and Ride School will be giving 50% off all group lessons all day, and Rentals will be running at 2 for 1 tuning pass to help you get ready for the season.

Try to plan your lift rides because you might be on the 70th Anniversary Platinum Prize Chair!  Winter Park will be picking 1 chair an hour at 9:07am, 10:07am, and 11:07am.
