Winter Park Real Estate

Winter Park Real Estate

Anyone looking for a taste of the great outdoors has come to the right place if they find themselves in Winter Park, Colorado. Nestled in the Rocky Mountains along the western slope of the Continental Divide, the small mountain town has so much to offer its patrons – from hiking to mountain biking, boutique shopping to relaxing next to a mountain stream – Winter Park truly has it all. Not to mention some of the finest skiing in all of the United States. Yes, with all that it has to offer, it’s no surprise that Winter Park real estate is in growing demand.

First settled during the Great Depression while the Moffat Tunnel was being built, Winter Park was first inhabited by construction workers and wintertime vacationers. One of its earliest settlers, “Doc” Graves, established one of the earliest settlements in 1922 by powering its cabins, café and lone service station by a water wheel at nearby Vasquez Creek. Soon after, the Winter Park Ski Resort enjoyed its first official season in 1939 and skiers have made their way to the mountain town just 90 minutes west of Denver’s city limits ever since. Despite years of growing notoriety for the town’s ski resort, Winter Park wasn’t officially founded until August 1, 1978. Since then, the town has grown in size and population through its annexation of neighboring mountain villages and increasing desire for Winter Park real estate. Today, Winter Park is commonly referred to as “Colorado’s Highest,” having the highest elevation of any town in the United States with its highest point at 12,060 feet above sea level.

First and foremost known for its ski resort, Winter Park thrives on its skiing and snowboarding visitors who commonly hit its mountain slopes during the winter months. Made up of three interconnected peaks – Mary Jane, Winter Park and Vasquez Ridge – the resort boasts a total of 3,060 skiable acres and a total of 143 winding trails. But not just a ski town, Winter Park has much to offer during the summer months as well. Biking and hiking trails twist throughout the scenic landscape and many are eager to wet a line for trout in any of the local mountain streams. Some enjoy a leisurely horseback ride or capture breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains from the height of a hot air balloon ride. Whether it’s outdoor excitement or rest and relaxation, Winter Park can simply fill the needs of most anyone.
