Located just over an hour west of Denver and the Front Range, the town of Winter Park sits nestled into the Fraser River Valley. The steep drive up and over Berthound Pass that's required to access Winter Park, makes the town feel removed from the hustle and bustle of the I-70 corridor. The town is heavily invested in outdoor sports, especially mountain biking, with good reason.

Visiting Tips

April/May through October/November.
