The transition from ski season to summer continues with the recent announcement that Winter Park Resort will open for the summer this weekend.
Summer at Winter Park kicks off Saturday, June 15, with a number of things to do, including the opening of Trestle Bike Park, the Alpine Slide, scenic chairlift rides on the Zephyr Express, mini-golf, the human maze and the outdoor climbing wall.
According to Winter Park, 70 percent of Trestle Bike Park’s trails will be open on Saturday, including Rainmaker from Double Jeopardy Down, Double Jeopardy, Search and Seizure from the top to Trestle DH, Free Speech, No Quarter, Beeall, Bear Arms, Green World and Long Trail from 5-five points, among others.
A $49 Adventure Pass ($15 for kids five and under), gives you unlimited rides on all of Winter Park’s base activities, excluding Trestle Bike Park. The Coca-Cola Adventure 4-Pack is $199 ($189 when purchased in advance) and includes four all-day Adventure Passes, four 12-oz Coca-Cola beverages, four hot dogs, four bags of chips, and a $20 retail voucher.
