Denver, Colorado, United States Trip: 2014-12   Update: 2015-03-07   By: xmlian1

Title: Ski at WinterPark Colorado

Preparation: Since we live in Houston, we don't have enough clothes for real cold weather. Before we leave Houston, we have to buy all the winter ski clothes, socks, shoes, hats etc for adults and kids.

Attractions and activities: Winter Park have to offer 400 inches of snow a year, great ski slopes, and high speed lifts keep visitors coming year-round. After a day on the slopes, there is a nice variety of restaurants within walking distance without the crowds of the older ski areas.

Commute: We have to fly to Denver from Houston. Spirits has cheapest air fare with non-stop flight from IAH to DEN. Winter park resort is about 2 hours drive from DEN airport. There is Home James Transportation Services that you can reserve online for the transportation. Start your vacation at the airport as the professional drivers take you and your family directly to the door of your mountain lodging.

Lodge: We stayed at Beaver Village. There is a shuttle running between Beaver Village and ski resort every 30 minutes and it is only 10 minutes drive. It is very convenient.
