Come Nov. 18, Dallas residents will have a Colorado ski option. 

That would be Winter Park Resort.

Winter Park Resort is planning for its 20/21 winter season and is inviting visitors to come rediscover what makes a winter vacation in the mountains so magical and unique.

Winter packages are available, and travelers will certainly want to take advantage of the winter vacation packages. The cancellation-easy options are a big plus as is the Winter Park’s Insider’s Package. This package guarantees 30% off lodging and lift tickets plus exclusive discounts on rentals, lessons, guides, tours and more. 

Insiders also receive special Winter Park souvenirs, discounts on resort dining, and mid-week early access to the mountain, which means first tracks down the slopes. Insiders also have access to a weekday snowshoe or ski bike tour, plus a Thursday night exclusive snowshoe experience, perfect for stargazers. 

Reservation made by Sept. 14 are cancellation easy, and the resort will also work with travelers’ if any new travel restrictions are mandated in the next few months.

And how can the resort assure it has the ability to keep things safe during these questionable COVID-19 days? 

For one, Winter Park has been open for business this summer. The resort has successfully, safely, and efficiently moved thousands of guests up and on the mountain for summer adventures. 

It is a model the Winter Park Resort folks said they will use for the winter season.

“We believe in the power of rejuvenation that a mountain vacation can bring. The pure exhilaration and unspoiled natural beauty of Winter Park is an ideal place to recharge and reset, which we all need now more than ever. We’re excited to invite guests to join us this winter, while keeping the health and safety of our employees, guests and community paramount,” Liz Agostin, Winter Park Resort director of marketing said.

Overall, Winter Park is continuing to monitor mandates, restrictions, and guidelines to help keep employees, guests, and the local community safe and healthy. The resort’s plan is to open and operate with modifications for the 20/21 winter season as conditions allow.

While Winter Park is noted for its terrain, variety of winter activities, unique atmosphere and drivability from Dallas, the resort is also recognized for its promise of cleanliness procedures too.

Located 67 miles from Denver, Winter Park Resort offers more than 3,000 acres of world-class terrain. The Resort is nestled along the Continental Divide and is known for its unspoiled, pure nature and authentic Colorado vibe. 

Winter Park Resort is owned by Alterra Mountain Company and offers the Ikon Pass, the new standard in season passes. For more information, visit or call and become a Winter Park Insider 1-866-239-3994.
