Default Winter Park, Colorado

What's everyone's thoughts on Winter Park, CO? Some friends and I have a trip planned out there for late January. Just wondering if anyone has any comments on what areas to hit up (powder)? Also, what areas should we hit up when the lifts close? Thanks and happy winter!!

I see you made to Faser, the creek is always fun. MJ is nice because there are really no green or blue trails so it does not get that crowded...also some serious tree runs and pow stashes to be had. Last year I was up there around 3-4 days a week...going to be mostly a weekend warrior this but I really do like the mountain...

i brought my gf up to winterpark for a week during springbreak last year. she picked up skiing fast enough at winterpark that she was doing the maryjane blue run on the 2nd and 3rd day. the mountain was awsome and it wasnt very crowded. if u go to the restraunt in fraser called Garcias or something like that.. u can ask for the bartender's house shot "the panty dropper"
:P ty bartender if u read this.. b/c it worked great on my gf hahaha

Winter Park is great. First mountain I'd ever been to, 15 years ago. I finally got back there 2 years ago and had to go again last year, only to find they have added the Panoramic Express. I didn't leave Mary Jane for 3 days. Usually good snow and good riding. I had the best Salmon dish ever last year. I think it was at Deno's.

It's been nuking. In the last 48 hours Winterpark has gotten 20". More snow is on the way. Right now not much of the resort is open. Rumor is Mary Jane will open Sunday, maybe Monday. I would say you have a good chance of having more than half the mountain open when you arrive. Maybe even close to 100%, minus the hike to spots.

It's all in the same basic region as those resorts. Winterpark tends to get more snowfall than Summit County. Vail and Wintepark get about the same snowfall.

Park at Winterpark is something they have been stepping up but it's still not at the level of the other resorts you mentioned. The tree riding at Winterpark, more specifically Mary Jane is argueably the best in the state. Especially if you can handle expert terrain. Overall it's my preferred front range resort when I am riding lifts.
