Winter Park is one of Colorado’s budget ski vacation leaders. Because Winter Park is a mere 66 miles from Denver, the resort is a popular “weekend warrior” destination. But don’t let that deter you, this is to the advantage of someone looking to experience Winter Park on a shoestring, and trust us, there’s plenty to experience. From affordable, and tasty, eats, to budget hotels and condos, to great happy hours, a Winter Park budget ski vacation has it all. And don’t forget you can nab discounted lift tickets via Ski.com’s vacation packages. To learn more, call, or chat with, one of our knowledgeable Mountain Vacation Specialists.

You know a place is affordable, and good for that matter, when you see a lot of locals hanging out. Deno’s Mountain Bistro, on the corner of Highway 40 and Vasquez Blvd., is one of those places. They offer an unbeatable happy hour, with $1 glass of wine and cocktails, and varied food menu−scallops to wings to fondue−with nothing over $11. And of course, a Winter Park ski vacation is no ski vacation at all, without a visit to famed Hernando’s Pizza and Pasta Pub. This funky pizza joint has dollar bills taped and tacked to nearly every wall space available, plus they have incredible 14” specialty “Colorado-style” pies to the tune of $20.
