With a name like Winter Park, there isnít much doubt about this central Rockies town's purpose. If itís a snow activity, you can do it here. The skiing is diverse enough to please everyone from beginners to experts. The snowshoeing is great as well. And the sledding in nearby Fraser is screamingly good. Snow Mountain Ranch Nordic Center and Devil's Thumb Ranch offer plenty of options for cross-country skiers and snowshoers. Sleigh and hayrides are also part of the local winter scene. Or how about a dogsled ride? Winter Park is also home to the national program for disabled skiers. Restaurants cater to cold-weather activities with hearty German, spicy Cajun or Mexican food, and shops sell just about anything you forgot to pack. Donít dismiss Winter Park as a summer vacation destination as well. In summer, you can ride a ski lift up a mountain and hike down a wildflower-strewn trail. Mountain bikers find plenty of places to ride here.
