Winter Park Resort is one of North America’s best ski resorts. It’s terrain ranges from beginner slopes, including a magic carpet for those truly first time skiers, all the way to the most expert tree and rugged back country skiing. There is everything in between and the snow we get here in the Fraser Valley is truly second to none. Located just 67 miles west of Denver, we are in the enviable position of being an easy drive for the front range skier for a day of fun, to the destination skier looking for that mountain vacation of their dreams.
What happens after the lifts are closed or for those people in the group that are non-skiers? We have many options to keep everyone entertained and happy. Starting at the Winter Park Resort itself, they offer several activities that are non-skiing related. You can take a cat tour up to the top of Sunspot and enjoy lunch with the most spectacular views in the area. There are guided snowshoe tours and there are several wonderful shops and restaurants to visit in the village. Take a look at their website at www.skiwinterpark.com.
The Town of Winter Park is located just a couple of miles down the road and there is shopping, restaurants, bars, cross country skiing, dog sledding, ice skating and at the far end of town (technically it’s in the town of Fraser) is our bowling alley/movie theater. Perfect for some entertainment indoors for the non-skier or if you have exhausted yourself on the slopes. Check out our chamber’s website, www.playwinterpark.com.
Then, as you head into the Town of Fraser, my most favorite play spot of the entire area is located on the left. This is the Grand Park Recreation Center. They offer swimming, a full weight room, track, basketball courts, gymnastics. It’s fantastic. Check out their website: www.fraservalleyrec.org.

"Angela Sandstrom was amazing to work with in the recent sale of my Meadowridge Condo. She is very conscientious and dedicated. She was readily available whenever I had a question and was a wealth of information. It's obvious that she is a long-term local and knows the area like the back of her hand. I would highly recommend Angela to anyone looking to buy or sell. I hope to work with her again in the future."
