    it's a big ski area with several mountains and lots of trails. For a long time it was very much oriented towards Denver residents who would drive up (or take the train) to ski for the day and then return home. It was a good "family" ski area offering a great selection of runs for intermediate and advanced intermediate skiers. There were runs for advanced skiers of course, but those looking for the most challenging slopes tended to head to other ski areas that focused on that kind of skiing. However, over the years the ski area has expanded and now includes more advanced runs and more resort development as well.

    the runs are more tailored to skiing

    That's fantastic to hear, should be good for the price I'm going to pay just to go for a week. I'm going to snowboard, make it more of a challenge. Does the place have Wi-Fi and is there any place like an ice-rink close by?

    Well I don't know much about Colorado, you will have to go to there website or something. Mrs Blunden told me to advise you Wesley, to go skiing because apparently you will enjoy skiing more. Thats what I'm doing :cool:

    When I lived in CO, I got season passes every year to Copper and WP

    Copper is nicer for boarding. THough Mary Jane at WP is good too

    I also go to Steamboat, which is nice for boarding

    I've only skiied Winter Park once, but I also do remember a lot of flat areas. Overall a nice place. I got the Colorado Pass this year. Can't wait to take advantage of it. Skiing at Keystone, Breck, A Basin and 10 days at Vail at BC. Dunno how much time I'll have to take advantage of the pass, but we'll see.

    We have access to a resort in Winter Park, but have never used it.

    I plan on using it this winter, though.

    I’ve just found out that they have an ice-rink there. Does anybody know how often it is open during the Easter?
