With the holidays comes the snow and all the unique gifts offered by nature that allow us to enjoy various forms of outdoor experiences and adventures. As the ski season begins, we have our eyes set on the stunning beauty of Colorado, where Winter Park Resort offers over 100 things to do at this breathtaking destination! As 100 hundred different adventures can seem daunting (especially for new skiers like us!), luckily, Winter Park Resort offers Ski & Ride Guides to make your vacation experience an uncomplicated, memorable one.
A Winter Park Ski & Ride Guide is an ideal gift of adventure, exploration and discovery. No matter your skiing or riding ability or preference of terrain, their guides will guide your way around the mountain, showing you the steepest powder trails, the bumpiest mogul runs, the most solitary tree runs, or the widest open groomer trails. Winter Park Ski & Ride Guides can be pre-booked, personalized, and customized, letting you, your friends, or loved ones choose the exact guide and experience they want.
WHY BOOK A GUIDE?
- The perfect powder day: a mountain adventure guide enables you to take advantage of every last knee-deep powder stash. Winter Park guides specializing in deep-snow days know that every snowstorm is different, which means the best trails to seek out vary with every storm. Wind, temperatures, moisture, and direction all impact where and how much snow falls. A mountain adventure guide knows and understands the nuance of powder-producing storms and can get you right to the goods long before anyone else. Plus, you get to access the mountain up to an hour before the public, and a guide means you get to skip lift lines, too.
- A memory-making family day: a guided family ski day will allow you and your little ones to enjoy all your favorite trails and discover some new ones, too. Having a guide means your family can focus on fun rather than figuring out the route for the day or how to get back to the amazing trail you stumbled upon. The best part is that you and your loved ones get ushered to the front of every lift line, and that means more skiing and riding and less time negotiating your way around the mountain.
- An adventurous mountain getaway: Whether you’ve got a weekend getaway or a week-long vacation planned, adding on a Winter Park mountain guide can help you learn your way around the mountain quickly and show you the best areas to ski based on your ability and what you like. As always, when you ski or ride with a guide, lift lines will no longer produce gasps or eye-rolls!
- Time is precious: now more than ever, time and exploration together are priceless. A guide will give you more structured time to do and enjoy what you set to do: celebrate the season on a trail skiing, tubing, or snowboarding; take a walk in the woods; grab your sled; take the gondola to the top of the mountain for sunset alpenglow views; take a private guided tour of untouched terrain; make s’mores in the many fire pits, and enjoy unspoiled fun and thrills with your family and friends.
Winter Park Resort, Colorado’s quintessential mountain and ski resort, is located less than 70 miles from the city of Denver.

During the winter, Winter Park receives some of the state’s most consistent snowfall across its 3000+ acres of world-class terrain and has been voted USA Today’s #1 Ski Resort in North America for three of the last four years. – GM
