Downhill Skiing & Snowboarding
Winter Park Ski Resort/Mary Jane Mountain
Winter Park Mountain is a haven for family skiing with its beautifully-groomed cruiser runs, terrain parks, halfpipe and a host of popular learn-to-ski programs.
Mary Jane Mountain has developed a worldwide reputation for having some of the best bump skiing in North America. In fact, this year Snow Country magazine named Mary Jane one of the Top 5 Resorts in North America for Bump Skiing. Long, unrelenting mogul runs and steep, technical chutes highlight this paradise of advanced terrain. Just one date with Mary Jane and you'll see why a favorite saying among locals is "No Pain, No Jane."
Vasquez Ridge Being further off the beaten path, and serviced by the Pioneer Express high speed quad lift, guests love the wide-open runs like "Stagecoach" and "Sundance" and the short challenging bump runs like "Gambler" and "Aces & Eights".
Parsenn Bowl A wide-open, high-alpine bowl that first opened in 1992. With a top elevation of 12,060', you really get to experience high-altitude skiing at its best. the terrain is ideal for intermediate and advanced skiers and riders. Hint: Parsenn Bowl is nirvana on a powder day.
Vazquez Cirque 435 acres of prime, off-piste terrain that features a mix of cornices, rock outcroppings, steeps and glades. Note: this is for the extreme backcountry adventurer-conditions are vastly different from other parts of the mountain. Ski, board or telemark within your ability.
