Winter Park adds New Snow Cats and Snowmaking!

Mon 09 September 13

This winter, Winter Park will offer a new “Cirque Sled,” a snowcat ride that will provide skiers and riders easier access to the Cirque, where 1,332 acres of spectacular off-piste terrain awaits.

A pass for the 48-passenger Cirque Sled is just $10 and is good for unlimited rides all season long.  Winter Park is also updating its snow cat fleet by adding three new cats and replacing two others, which will increase groomed terrain to between 650-750 acres a night. 

Winter Park’s main snowmaking pipe, originally installed in 1976, will be replaced, allowing Winter Park to be more efficient when making snow, and in turn enable terrain to open faster. The Coca-Cola Tubing Hill will be open for a full season after being added at the end of 2012. A full season of operation for not only the tubing hill, but also the Hill House – winner of awards for architectural design and featuring designer hot chocolate – will give families yet another fun activity at Winter Park beyond skiing and riding.
