I am very grateful that Winter Park resorts hosted my family for a winter ski trip. I am always looking for a fun,family friendly resort that is budget friendly and full of activities. I connected with Mistalynn Lee who is the communications manager. She was extremely friendly and helpful. She created an itinerary that was perfect for my family. I have a 9 year old son and a 6 year old daughter who are very outdoorsy and adventurous.
We stayed at the beautiful and accomodating Zephyr Lodge.
The Zephyr Mountain Lodge is a rustic and contemporary ski-in/ski-out lodge with a slopeside location just 110 feet from the Zephyr Express Lift. It’s as close as you can sleep to the lifts without sleeping outside.
The Zephyr combines a heightened level of sophistication and elegance providing you and your family with a memorable Colorado vacation experience. Mountain side units have a view of the Village area, while the Divide side units have a view of the Continental Divide.
VIEW FROM OUR CONDO! Look out and see the ski lifts. We literally walked outside our condoand within 5 minutes were in line at the chair lift. This is great with little kids. They even have wagons for families to carry all of their gear to the mountain and back. This is a lifesaver!
We went to the Colorado Adventure Park and had a blast going down the brand new Tubing Hill! They have a magic carpet that takes you up the hill and the kids had a great time. We spent an hour there and left just as the sun was setting. It was absolutely beautiful. There are so many family friendly activities in Winter Park-you will never go bored.
Winter Park has so many different runs, that you can find whatever works for you and your children. It had been a year since we last skied, so everyone was a bit rusty. There were a lot of green runs that got us comfortable on the slopes. We then ventured to some blue runs and had a great time. The resort itself is breathtaking and they cater to all of your needs. We were on the slopes most of the day and by the time we had turned in our skis, everyone was ready for a little rest.
We headed back to The Zephyr Lodge and got into the hot tub. They have an outdoor hot tub that overlooks Winter Park resort. It was just what we needed! We then headed over to Lime Cantina and had a great dinner. The next morning we woke up and headed to the brand new Winter Park rec center. The kids had a great time swimming in the indoor pool, equipped with a lazy river, a diving board and a slide. A great opportunity to do something indoors on a cold day.
Overall, we had a wonderful time in Winter Park and highly recommend it for anyone looking to plan a family trip. There is so much to do and it is all in a very close proximity to each other. Enjoy!
