Recommendations for skiing at Winter Park (Colorado) Tomorrow?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey, so myself and several friends will be skiing at Winter Park tomorrow and I was hoping to get some tips and recommendations from anyone that frequents the resort. I and the friends I'll be skiing with are comfortable and blues and groomed blacks (which I assume includes blue-blacks at WP), but we're not big on moguls. I've never been to Winter Park, but I've skied a lot at the Vail-owned Colorado resorts (we're all locals), particularly Keystone and Vail itself. Additionally, one of my friends has only ever skied smaller mountains outside of Colorado, but says he likes harder blues, so if you could recommend any good light-ish blue runs to warm up and make sure he's good to go for Colorado blues, I'd appreciate it.

From bottom of WP take Zephyr lift or, from mid-mountain, take Eskimo lift, to top of WP and warm up on Cramner. 

If you want to stay on Zephyr and keep ending up at base (not necessarily recommended), there are a number of harder groomed (at least they were last weekend) runs to the bottom (Upper and Lower Hughes and Mulligans Mile were all groomed).  Also, from top, you can get to blues and blue/blacks that end up at Olympia lift (White Rabbit, JAbberwocky, Cheshire Cat, etc.)  There is also a flat run down Pioneer lift, below Olympia, that has some blue runs (Buckaroo, Sundance, Stagecoach, etc.).  Later, and also from the top, and assuming its open (wind dependent) ,ski on blue runs down to Panoramic Express lift and try some of the blue and blue black runs off of it.

I'll be in Denver early April and plan on skiing WP Monday April 4th.   I'll be skiing the moguls and the steeper terrain.  If any bears want to show me around shoot me a PM and we can put it on stand by.
