Welcome To Ski Town: Winter Park Colorado
When driving from the Denver airport to our resort in Granby, we passed through a town called Winter Park. It looked so charming, we made a note to come back another day for a visit, as it was only about 25 minutes away from where we were staying.
Little did we know we’d end up spending half of our vacation here… and that’s not a bad thing!
Cooper Creek Square is home to many souvenir shops, boutiques, and restaurants.
It’s a wonder why no one was sitting outside!
No trip to Winter Park Colorado is complete without a visit to the famed Winter Park Resort.
We parked in the free parking lot and took the (free) cabriolets to the Village.
It was about a 2-minute ride ‘over the river and through the woods’!
Upon exiting the cabriolet, we walked a few hundred feet to the The Back Bowl Soup Company.
Then, we were off to explore the rest of the Village.
The Village at the resort has quaint lodging, great restaurants and neat shops, along with access to a multitude of winter activities, including skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, and tubing.
The line for the lift was rather long… and it wasn’t even the busy season yet… and it was a weekday!
This place probably gets crazy on the weekends in prime season!
None of us are skiers, so we just stood at the bottom of the mountain and enjoyed watching people come down the slopes!
Even though we simply walked around the Village, we thoroughly enjoyed our time there!
We had many more fun adventures during our week in Colorado.
