Winter Park (Colorado)

Default Banner.jpg

Winter Park, Colorado, has many pasttimes for both Summer and Winter visitors. There are several places that close during the spring and fall, however.

Get in

Do

  • Ski
  • Hot Sulphur Springs Resort. Hot Sulpher Springs is about 45 minutes north of Winter Park. They have a fantastic set of hot springs pools, fun in both the winter and summer. They also have lodging here, but there's a level traing crossing and 3 to 4 trains come through in the middle of the night blowing their whistles within half a mile of the rooms.

Eat

  • Basecamp Bakery, fantastic breakfast and lunches. (Local, $7 per person)
  • Hernando's, Pizza and Pasta. One of our favorites. (Local, $7 per person)
  • The Shed, unique southwest inspired food, very good stuff though usually very busy. (Local, $12 per person)
  • Mad Munchies (30 miles north in Grandby), fantastic sandwiches. We always have a meal here when in Winter Park. (Local, $6 per person)
  • Pizza Shop in Frasier. Good pizza and Italian food, but I don't recall the name. (Local, $6 per person)

Sleep

  • (Frasier) The Rocky Mountain Inn and Hostel in Frasier. Very cheap rooms and communal rooms. Has a computer with dial-up net access, but also has very good CDMA coverage. This is where "jafo" usually stays when going to Winter Park, just down the road from Winter Park Proper.
  • About 10 miles north of Frasier is a golf resort that has many very nice condos as well as hotel rooms, for around $140 per night. The condos all seem to have hot tubs in them. No CDMA coverage though.

Contact

Winter Park has great Sprint CDMA coverage. This coverage extends north to Frasier, but not much further. The Hostel has dial-in on a public terminal.
