Winter Park Ski Resort for Skiers and Snowboarders

Voted #1 ski resort by USA Today two years in a row, and celebrating their 82nd year as Colorado’s Favorite, the Winter Park Ski Resort offers over 3,000 acres of ski terrain within seven different ski territories. Winter Park has 166 ski trails of various levels. Skiers choose between the 23 different ski lifts to the ski trails of anyone’s choice. Some ski trails have almost 5 miles of downhill fun! With an included ski lesson, beginner skiers will quickly become comfortable with their learned skills, and slowly advance to more intermediate trails with their friends. Over 10 million people ski in the US each year because it is safe, enjoyable, and the world’s #1 winter sport. Winter Park receives an average snow fall of 27 feet per year and has some of Colorado’s most consistent snow fall year after year. The months of March and April are typically high-volume snow months with much milder temperatures- offering more enjoyable and comfortable spring snow skiing, with abundant snow, and smaller crowds during the festival.

Included Ski and Snowboard Lessons

“Have you never skied before? Are you worried about your students who have never skied?” About 90% of our festival attendees haven’t either! We figure over 140,000 music students have learned to ski at the Winter Park Ski-Music Festival. After receiving lessons, students will be skiing the mountain with their friends on the first day, and likely addicted to this amazing outdoor experience.  

Beginners must be at least 12 years old to receive our included lesson required for their safety and overall enjoyment. 

Non-Ski Mountain Recreation

For members choosing not to ski or snowboard, the festival provides 6 vouchers to be redeemed for mountain activities at the Winter Park Ski Resort, in any combination they wish, during their stay.

  • 1 voucher for one hour of tubing at the resort’s curved lane downhill tubing hill  *
  • 1 voucher for scenic Gondola rides to the Winter Park Resort mountaintop summit and back down during any one day
  • 2 vouchers for a panaromic guided downhill snowshoe tour
  • 3 vouchers for a warm and comfortable mountain Snowcat tour along the summit of Winter Park Resort
  • 1 voucher for a ski resort meal voucher to be used at the resort operated eating places at the base or mountaintop

 These non-ski activities are subject to satisfactory weather conditions, adequate snow fall amounts, operating equipment, availability and scheduling as established by the ski resort.  These non-ski activities may require date/time reservations to be made in advance, after arrival in Winter Park.   Festival attendees choosing to ski/snowboard could purchase these same activities from the resort directly- but are not also included with a festival package.  These non-ski activities may not compare to the recreational value and time a skier or snowboarder would typically have available to them.


Now offering seven different lodging options for your group to choose from. We offer cabins, lodge rooms, and condos in order to fit any travel budget and need.


Every package includes a choice between one recreation activity: skiing, snowboarding, downhill tubing, gondola rides, snowcat tours, or snowshoe tours.


Groups compete against same school size, ensemble type and level. Comments and ratings are provided by 3 recognized and experienced adjudicators.
