Winter Park and Other Colorado Travel Destinations Open Up

Mountain bikers, trailer runners, hikers other and outdoor junkies can start making plans. Winter Park’s Trestle Bike Park will open on June 27. Most of Colorado’s ski resorts have been shut down for months. This has left adventure seekers of what summer resort access will look like.

Following state and county reopening guidelines, Winter Park Resort will open its gondola with access to mountaintop hiking trails. It will also open its base-area putting course and its Trestle Bike Park for summer guests. Additional base-area services, including various restaurants, bike rentals, and some retailers will also open. Guests can already make lodging reservations for resort-managed properties, which open today.

Winter Park Will Be Open Summer 2020

The resort will operate with “modified summer recreational offerings.” This means visitors can expect some modifications to help protect them, and employees, from COVID-19. (We outline these in detail below.)

But otherwise, the park will be open 7 days a week through Labor Day. For the remainder of September 2020, the resort will operate only on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
