Winter Park Resort & Trestle Bike Park will open for the summer season on Saturday, June 14th, 2014. Join in the fun as the Village comes alive, with a full line up of events and activities throughout the summer.
First to kick off the season (and sweeten the deal), is the Winter Park Chocolate Festival, held in the Village on June 14th, from 10 am – 4 pm. Stroll through booths of sheer chocolatey decadence, and purchase a $10 taste ticket to sample the wares. Live music by top Celtic band, Skean Dubh, will provide a foot tapping backdrop to the many events going on throughout the day, including a chocolate pudding eating contest, chocolate & beer pairing demo, truffle competition & chocolate making demo with chef Paxton Gross.
Other FREE weekly events in the Village at Winter Park include Coca-Cola Family Movies Night, Friday Music Series, S’mores By The Fire & Intro To Geocaching. For further details on any of these free events, call one of our friendly reservation team at the number on the left; or check out our Winter Park Resort activity guide here.
Trestle Bike Park, at Winter Park Resort, also begins full operations on June 14th. Offering 3 lifts, to more than 40 miles of nerve tingling downhill trails, Trestle Bike Park is becoming the hot topic in the downhill mountain biking community.
Want to join in the fun? For those with a little experience under their belt, a Full Day Adult Pass to Trestle Bike Park is available for $39/day, or a Half Day for $29. If you’d like a tune up, or some tips & skills training before you go it alone, we’d highly recommend signing up for one of the Trestle Freeride 1 Day Camps (June 29 & August 10). These 6 hour workshops use video analysis, and top training methods to elevate your downhill riding to the next level. A full day camp with lift ticket & full rental (downhill bike, full face helmet, leg & arm protection) will set you back $159.99, and in our book, is worth every penny of it.
