Winter Park Ski Area 

When it comes to legacy, Winter Park has it in spades. It’s Colorado’s oldest continuously operated ski resort, with skiers taking to the slopes every winter since 1939. And with that legacy comes a whole lot of history. Winter Park has been slowly growing and improving over the decades since that first winter, and now it’s one of the top destinations in the Front Range. It doesn’t hurt that it’s also one of the closest ski resorts to Denver, it’s just 67 miles from the buzzing metropolis to the slopes. And those slopes are nothing to scoff at, with over three thousand acres of skiable terrain, Winter Park has something for everyone. From Mary Jane to Eagle Wind, Winter Park’s extensive network of lifts makes it easy to get around the mountain and explore.

James Niehues painted his original trail map of Winter Park in 1990 and then updated it nearly twenty years later in 2008 to account for the mountain’s expansion. This hand-painted map captures the mountain in all its glory, along with the winding road to the resort nestled in the valley. Winter Park is truly a gem close to the Front Range, the entry point for the wild world of Colorado skiing. And this Winter Park ski map serves as a roadmap to that world so that you can relive your best days at Winter Park for years to come.
