Slow Start To The Ski Season

Slow Start To The Ski Season

As we finish up the month of January, people across the state are taking notice of the below average snow conditions.  Snow depths are as low as 22% of normal, and reported as the lowest snowpack in more than 30 years. On the positive side, out of all the ski resorts here in Colorado, Winter Park has to deepest base depth, with 55’’ at the top and 49’’ at the bottom.  Yes this is below average for almost every resort out here, but riding conditions are still very fun! Winter Park Resort has all of it’s Green and Blue runs open, and close to having all of their Black runs open as well. If you are looking to come out and get a couple of runs in, do it! Even if you consider it to be below average (or below your standards), the views and just being out on the mountain makes up for the lack of snow! Winter Park Resort has a variety of restaurants and shops to enjoy at the base as well as on the mountain; so there is still plenty to savor here in WP.  As much as we all want it to be perfect conditions every time we get off the lift, that is not always the case. So come to Grand County still get a couple runs in, but reveal in all the other winter activities it has to offer, watch a sunset over Byers Peak, or enjoy a brew at Hideaway Park Brewery. Or all of the above, there are countless possibilities for fun and relaxation here in Grand County!
