Welcome to Winter Park Wonderland Activities
- October 03, 2022
The Best Western Alpenglo welcomes you and your family to a fun filled winter experience at Winter Park. First snowfalls will be happening in November prepping mountains for the ski season and related snow activities. Cross country, downhill skiing, exploring the forest on snowshoes, ski biking and stargazing from a snowcat are some of the fun activities for people of all ages. At the end of the day, visit the bustling downtown for food and refreshment.
For the entire family, try the Coca Cola Tubing Hill which is located next to the village gondola's parking lot. There are 3 well- groomed tubing paths to pick as to which speed one wants to travel- slow, medium and fast.
Try the Gondola for spectacular views of the Continental Divide and the Fraser River Valley----all at 10,700 feet! The gondola will be re-opening for the 22-23 season.
Various snowshoe tours, such as the Sunset Snowshoe, the Summit Snowshoe and the Nature Snowshoe, led by experienced Winter Park guides makes for a fun and great work-out for the entire family!
After all the sightseeing and skiing, try some of the tasty food available in Winter Park.
If pizza is your preference, try Pizza Pedal'r with vegetarian and vegan options. If your taste goes for a Mexican, Latin, fusion type of meal, head to Pepe Osaka's Fishtaco which is also vegetarian friendly. For authentic Indian and Nepalese food, try Durban....they have a chicken tikka masala accompanied by a garlic cheese naan.
A local's tip is to load the free Winter Park Experience Pass onto your mobile device which gives one access to deals, discounts and local adventures.
The Best Western Alpenglo is conveniently located to downtown Winter Park amenities, a shuttle to Winter Park Resort, restaurants, shopping and of course, to enjoy the hotel's hot tub.
