We're sure you've heard it before - when it comes to Grand County, people "come for the winter and stay for the summer." There's no question that Winter Park is known for its deep powder, epic resort & backcountry skiing, and wealth of winter fun, but the secret is out: summer in the mountains is about as good as it gets.
