Winterpark has great mogals. they litter the mountain. The chutes usualy are icy or unskiable. I wouldnt recomend them. The cirque has some of the best in bounds off piste skiing in the US great long steep runs usualy coverd with powder but there is a mile travers to get to the cirque. the first run has lots of powder usualy. and unless you want to walk anouther half mile or drop a 10-15 foot cornice it is the best and fastes way in.

Winter Park is the small resort of comfortable 1.5 hours drive from Denver. Accommodation in WP Village is near the ski area, but the accommodation in WP Downtown is both cheaper and better. The ski buses are ideal for transportation. The limited business offering and nightlife are more than compensated for by skiing.

Most of the 25 lifts are quite old and slow but, along with the design of the ski area, provide a nice laid back atmosphere. During Christmas and New Year the parking was full, but the lift queues still shone with their absence. In the Mary Jane area there are very good humpbacks, woodlands and really steep hills, and if you want to sleep with long carvings, Winter Park Mountain is a pistachio mecca. Best off piste can be found in Parsenn bowl or down to the Vasques ridge and Vasques cirque areas. Opportunities for back country skiing are endless, especially at the Berthod pass as you cross the Denver-WP road.

It is worth mentioning that when the resort is located on almost 3000 meters of skiing an additional 1000 meters up it is snow proof, but most feel the height of the first few days. It facilitates drinking a lot of water the week before arrival.

The winter park side is quite boring, Mary Jane offers a lot of fun things: chutes, canoeing good forest skiing and, of course, a lot of PUCKEL .....

Was a bit bad with snow the first time I was there, and then I can tell straight away that winter park / mary jane is not particularly good.

The second time we were snatched a week (they closed the berthod passport) and the skiing at Mary Jane was absolutely amazing. deep with powder everywhere.

Otherwise, it is just the passport to go to, a lot of nice skiing there.

Puck, puckle, hump, puckle and little pistachio so everyone can settle down. A very strange place with hollows in the forest where you can just go out and smoke a little hollow. Hippie cultures have said their tracks here. You quickly understand that there is only one thing that applies here .... can you go up or down? Without lying, one might say that Beaver Creek has 10ggr so many pistols. This is cheeky in our world. The park is really good and it is made with perfection where you can see 3 bounces one after the other with the exact same dimensions, making it easy and easy tricks at this place. Their black park requires park passes that you can buy in the snowboard shop after watching a security film and answering questions and abandoning all your rights in American fashion.
Rumors say there should be a very nice offpiste on MaryJane but unfortunately I have not tried it!
Do you just want to go humped ...... go here!

Mary Jane was the area that felt most interesting if you were looking for a little more challenging skiing. But for my part, winter park is summarized with a word PUCKEL. Whenever you look or do not look, they are there, you do not like the puck choose a different place. A tip if you have access to a car is to stay on the road at Berthod pass o tense the pants. This is an old ski system that was laid down a few years ago to get a driver then you aim at the sparse forest o let the polar pick you up further down after a cruel unspoilt yard without congestion! Incredible yard in the moonlight, nice winter evenings, popular with students in the denver that go up to the berthod in the evening for some nice days. And above all, Free !!

The fall height is not really very remarkable, much like Åres, but every meter is well utilized.
Here you will find everything from barely sloping soccer plans to double black chutes in Mary Jane. Do you love puckles, are you in the right place, big soft and harmonious. Outlet and drunken Frenchman gets silent on any kax-olle! Snow proof as few, during the week we were there, there were 180 cm pillows, which was the experience of my life. This wonderful snow is enjoyed everywhere, in the woods, above the tree line and in the slopes. But it's easy to get out of the car, open both front doors carefully and then hit again at the same time. The car is clean!


PS! An evening stroll down to Denver is possible for hockey visits. Now, Foppa in Avalanche does not play anymore, but there are others watching!

The only downside is night life, it's safe but you can not get it. 2 beers on afterskin and then you want to go home and sleep.

Mary-Jane is part of Winter Park, which is heaven on earth for those who love puckel plaster. Then I do not mean the trist icecourses found in some places here in the north, without wonderful long pillow-covered puck pails created by the ridge and not pissed throughout the season. Like all Colorado's ski areas, the air and therefore the snow are very dry (there is a desert on the other side of the mountains). Even if it gets sunny and up to 20 degrees warm it never gets hot, and it's snowing a lot. There is also a good offpiste but it is not as steep as in the Alps.

Winter Park / Mary-Jane is a relaxed place, unlike the larger places like Vail and Aspen where it's a bit more posh. To Mary-Jane, locals who love humpback, and enthusiasts willing to spend a week (season) go to a small hole without any tourist life, in favor of (according to some) the most beautiful pucklist in the world.
Highly recommended!

Great place, quite big! Located just over 1h from Denver, very good slopes and nice offpiste. Located in conjunction with "Mary Jane".
