This towering transport will whisk skiers and boarders to the backside of Parsenn Bowl at 11,486 feet. These legendary back bowls promise deep powder and thrilling extreme conditions sought after worldwide. Visitors and season pass holders will enjoy 143 total trails, including seven brand new runs in Parsenn Bowl.

Brian Lence, Vice President of Sales & Rental Management for Staywinterpark. says, “I remember vividly my first Opening Day experience 15 years ago. I’d just arrived from Europe, virtually half of the mountain was open, and the adrenaline was flowing pretty fast as I and a couple of friends rode the Zephyr Express lift up as the snow continued to fall. It was a pretty exciting day and there’s no other feeling like it – especially when you know there are 151 more days to follow! If you’re thinking of coming to Winter Park, now is the time to book. Big discounts on lodging, as well as lift tickets that are 50% cheaper than will be the case if you book after December 15th! If you’ve skied here before, pretend it’s your first day all over again. If it is your first day, make it memorable!”
