Winter Park is the Best Location for Your Meeting or Event

Winter Park, Colorado has many features that make it the perfect destination for your meeting or event while still being close to home. Winter Park has more than just scenic venue space. Endless activities and lodging for every season ensure a well-rounded trip to celebrate, work, play and relax.


Winter Park is less than a two-hour drive – without traffic – from Denver’s urban life. Follow I-70 West to US-40 West from Denver to access the mountains in no time. If you want to avoid sitting in traffic or prefer public transportation and scenic rides, hop on the Amtrak from Denver’s Union Station.

During ski season, book your travel on the Winter Park Express which runs on Saturdays, Sundays and the first two Fridays of the month. The train stops conveniently at the base of Winter Park Resort. Amtrak’s other option is to take the California Zephyr from Union Station which runs daily to Fraser, just five miles from Winter Park. Once there, take a free shuttle, The Lift, to easily get between the two towns.

Hike through wildflower meadows in spring or cross-country ski across the park in winter.
