Upgraded Lift Serving Vasquez Ridge

Guests can access the Vasquez Ridge Territory this winter on the new high-speed, six-person chairlift called the Wild Spur Express. This lift will have a 2,800 person per hour capacity and include a new mid-point loading zone where skiers can load at the intersection of the Big Valley and Pioneer Express runs allowing quicker laps on upper intermediate and advanced trails. It will become the only lift to access the challenging Vasquez Ridge territory after the four-passenger Pioneer Express was retired after last year’s 2022-23 season.

“Ultimately, intermediate and advanced skiers and riders will get more on-mountain time on the terrain they want,” the resort stated in a press release.

Early Ups

The Early Ups option is also new for the 2023/24 winter season. Early Ups is a season pass or daily lift ticket add-on, offering an opportunity for intermediate and advanced riders to be the first on the mountain. A limited quantity will be available to show appreciation to early risers. Enjoy freshly groomed trails and untouched snowfall this season!

Early Ups is loaded directly to your existing season pass or daily lift ticket. To book Early Ups for a single day, you need to select the same date as your existing lift ticket when booking.

Riders will have access to terrain serviced by the Super Gauge, Gondola, and Explorer lifts. The lifts will open at 8:30am on weekdays and 8:00am on weekends. Keep in mind, only intermediate and advanced terrain can be accessed. Luckily, there are no blackout dates with the Early Ups add-on, and it’s available for all ages. Sign up soon because there are limited quantities available for season pass holders and day lift ticket add-on purchasers.

60-Minute Pro Tips for $99

This year, intermediate and advanced skiers and riders looking for quick one-on-one tips and tricks to improve their skills can sign up for 60-Minute Pro Tips. This morning offering is available before the day on the mountain truly begins. Get fresh tracks, improve skills with an expert Ski + Ride Instructor, and gain high-value private lesson attention for a modest investment.

New Dining Options

Sundog Tap Room is a new community-centric tap room and dining experience opening this winter in the heart of the Village. The main highlight? A grand tap wall (complete with over 30 taps!) where you’ll be able to serve yourself and try local Colorado brews among standard favorites. While you’re telling stories after your day on the slopes, you can enjoy cocktails, wine, and sharable bar bites. 

Additionally, more snacks will be available to you around the mountain! Say hello to four new on-mountain pop-up dining spots designed to meet you where you are when hunger strikes– meaning you can grab something quickly to fuel the rest of your day on the slopes (think grilled cheese, Philly Cheesesteaks, tacos, and quesadillas– yum!). These pop-ups are planned for the top of the new Wild Spur Express lift, the bottom of the Olympia lift, the Mary Jane base area, and another just outside Lunch Rock at the top of the Super Gauge lift. Keep an eye out for them this winter!

New Ways to Get Your Gear

Winter Park is consolidating their premium and demo rental experience in a brand new location called Zero Creek Gear House adjacent to the Gondola, making it the most convenient spot to grab your premium or demo gear and hit the lifts!   

And if you’re more excited for your gear to be delivered to you, you’re in luck! Ski Butlers is coming to Winter Park this season. Here’s how it works: wherever you’re staying, Ski Butlers provides selection, fittings, gear drop-off and pick-up, and on-mountain support, creating a simple and convenient rental experience for everyone.

If you’re planning a golf trip to the Rocky Mountains, there’s no better place to stay than in a Visit Winter Park Lodging vacation rental. Not only do our rentals offer comfortable and luxurious accommodations, but they’re also conveniently located near some of the best golf courses in the area, including the world-class Pole Creek Golf Course.

Located just outside of Winter Park, Colorado, Pole Creek Golf Course is a 27-hole championship layout that offers a one-of-a-kind golfing experience in the Rocky Mountains. Designed by renowned golf course architect Denis Griffiths, the course features three distinct 9-hole courses, each with its own unique challenges and character.

One of the biggest draws of golfing at Pole Creek is the stunning mountain scenery. The course is situated at an elevation of over 8,000 feet above sea level, providing breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks and valleys. Golfers can expect longer drives and a more challenging game due to the thin air at high altitude, but the stunning natural beauty of the course more than makes up for it.

The Ranch course, one of the three courses at Pole Creek, is known for its rustic feel and incorporation of natural obstacles like meandering streams and thickets of trees. The Ridge course, on the other hand, features more elevated tee boxes and sweeping views of the surrounding mountains. And the Meadow course incorporates natural grasses and rolling hills into its layout, providing a more open and expansive feel.

One of the most memorable holes at Pole Creek is the par-3 8th hole on the Ridge course. This hole features an elevated tee box with stunning views of the Fraser Valley and the Continental Divide in the distance. However, golfers must hit their shot over a deep ravine to reach the green, making for a nerve-wracking and exciting experience.

After a day on the course, golfers can return to their Visit Winter Park Lodging vacation rental and unwind in comfort and luxury. These rentals come in a variety of sizes and styles, from cozy cabins to spacious mountain homes, ensuring that there’s something to fit every group size and preference.

Each vacation rental is equipped with all the amenities and conveniences of home, including fully stocked kitchens, comfortable furnishings, and plenty of entertainment options. And many of the rentals also offer additional features like hot tubs, fireplaces, and outdoor decks with stunning views of the surrounding mountains.

But the benefits of staying in a Visit Winter Park Lodging vacation rental don’t stop there. Many of our rentals are conveniently located near other activities and attractions in the area, making it easy to explore all that Grand County has to offer.

Winter Park and the surrounding area offer a plethora of outdoor activities, from hiking and biking to fishing and horseback riding. And in the winter months, visitors can enjoy skiing and snowboarding at the nearby Winter Park Resort.

In addition to the outdoor activities, there are also plenty of dining and shopping options in the area. Winter Park and the nearby town of Fraser offer a range of restaurants, cafes, and pubs, serving up everything from casual pub fare to upscale cuisine. And for those looking to do some shopping, there are plenty of local boutiques and artisan shops in the area, offering unique gifts and souvenirs.

Overall, a golf trip to Grand County, Colorado, and a stay in a Visit Winter Park Lodging vacation rental is the perfect combination of luxury, comfort, and outdoor adventure. With stunning mountain views, world-class golf courses like Pole Creek, and plenty of activities and attractions in the area, it’s no wonder why this region has become a popular destination for golf enthusiasts and nature lovers alike.

What exactly is the IKON Pass? Should you invest in the IKON Ski Pass? And if so, which one should you get? What about a Winter Park Season Pass? Let’s look more closely at the benefits of getting an IKON pass and other details you’ll need to know.

The IKON Pass is an inclusive pass that allows you access to multiple destinations by paying one fee. There are different variations of the pass, but the most important thing to know is that by choosing an IKON pass, you are able to access up to 56 different ski areas (each pass offers a different varying level of accessibility). This pass covers the 2023/2024 season, so you pay once, and then you’re covered. Convenience at its best. PLUS, pass holders get priority because resorts only sell a limited number of day tickets that you are required to order in advance. 

One of the ways that the pass levels differ is having access during blackout dates or offering fewer or more locations, along with details like short-term passes for a quick vacation vs. a seasonal pass for worldwide locations. We’ll break down the pricing shortly.

Family at Winter Park Resort

What resorts are included in the IKON Pass?

One of the most sought-after ski areas is the Winter Park Resort; and, yes, it’s included with the IKON Pass. Great news, right? What other resorts are included? Check out the list below. While the IKON pass includes resorts worldwide, we’ll focus on Colorado.

  • Winter Park Resort
  • Arapahoe Basin
  • Copper Mountain
  • Aspen/Snowmass/Buttermilk
  • Steamboat
  • Eldora

What do I need to know about the Winter Park Resort Season Pass?

The Winter Park Resort Season Pass is perfect if you’ll only be in this one area. It offers you a nice savings on unlimited access. With the Winter Park Season Pass, you can get a price break at $709 as opposed to the much steeper $1,259 IKON pass price you’ll see shortly. This is a great deal if you don’t think you’ll be going to other destinations.

What are the different price options between the main passes, and what do they include or exclude?

The IKON Pass offers unlimited access with no blackout dates. The IKON Base Pass is also unlimited, though it has a few blackout dates worth noting (Dec 26 – 31, 2023; Jan 13 – 14, 2024; and Feb 17 – Feb 18, 2024). This lowers the price for those looking for a budget-friendly option.

Blackout dates are a big piece of the puzzle. They are peak skiing times, and resorts are crowded. If you won’t be going during those peak times, it may make sense to get the Base Pass. On the other hand, if you’re planning to be there during those specific periods, make sure to pay attention and opt for the full Ikon Pass.

Currently the full access pass with no blackout dates is called IKON Pass and is listed at a price of $1,259 (for adults).

For the Ikon Base package – this is the one that has blackout dates – you’re looking at a price tag of $929 (if you’re over 23). There are discounts for young adults and children.

There is another option if you’re only coming in for a visit or won’t be in the area a lot, which is a great choice for vacationers. There is a 4-day pass, which allows you to cut costs. This pass only costs $469; but keep in mind, it also carries blackout dates. This four-day pass is good at 40 destinations.

There are a few more nuances you’ll want to pay attention to.

For example, for the big IKON Pass, you get unlimited skiing and rides at 16 destinations. Some have restrictions, and you get up to 7 days of access at a time. So, for example, you get unlimited access at Winter Park Resort, but if you were to go to Alta/Snowbird, Utah, you’d only be able to ski up to 7 days there on the pass.

Another thing to note is that there are discounts on passes based on age and certain other situations like military discounts. You can also choose to buy insurance.

Here are the prices for IKON pass:

$1,259 (ages 23+)

$939 (ages 13-22)

$419 (ages 5-12)

$149 (age 4 and under)

Another added bonus of purchasing the pass is that you get a discount on friends and family, and discounts on food and retail at multiple locations. To see the full list of bonuses, go here.

If you’re choosing to stay in the Winter Park area only and won’t be traveling to other resort areas, the Winter Park Season Pass is a great choice.
