The Ski and Ride FREE at Winter Park Resort package was a successful way to begin the 70th Anniversary Season, resulting in Winter Park Resort again collaborating with the Winter Park/Fraser Valley Chamber of Commerce for the return of free lift tickets with lodging from Thursday, April 1, 2009, through Closing Day, April 18, 2010, to bring this memorable season to a close. Travelers are looking for great deals and, while Winter Park is already known for being one of the most affordable and family-friendly resorts, this promotion clearly steps up our efforts during tough economic times, said Rob Perlman, vice president of sales and marketing at Winter Park Resort. Winter Park, the oldest continually running resort in Colorado, combines a rich heritage with new and traditional on- and off- mountain experiences, providing a wide range of options for winter sport devotees. We are pleased to be celebrating our Platinum Anniversary in partnership with the town of Winter Park. Winter Park will provide free lift tickets when guests book a minimum of two nights lodging between April 1 and April 18, 2010. Skiers and riders will get one free lift ticket per night booked, regardless of the size of the unit or number of people in the party.
