Zephyr Lodge Condo -- Area Information


Activities at the Base of Winter Park Resort

This information is compiled to assist guests who rent our Condo at the Zephyr Mountain Lodge.  If you've arrived at this page as a result of a web search on Winter Park Summers, we hope you benefit from the information.  And if you need lodging, thank you for considering us.

The Winter Park Ski Resort staffs a fun park each summer at the Ski Area Base Village.  Just minutes from the Zephyr Mountain Lodge are exciting activities for the whole family.   Activities change regularly, so some of this information may be out of date.

New for summer 2002, the Gravity Zone has it's own special ticket and special attractions.   Look for the Rock-n-Roll Gyro, the Tyrolian Challenge ropes course, the Leaps and bounds Bungee jumping, and the outdoor climbing wall.

Bungee jumping is one of the most popular.  You wear a special harness which attaches to a giant bungee cord fixed on the other end to a tall tower.  Beneath your feet is a trampoline.  Once secured into the harness, your acrobatics can begin.  Flips and twists are easy to perform with the help of the bungee cord.

The Rock-n-Roll Gyro straps riders into a set of gimbaled spheres.  Riders control their sped and attitude by shifting their body weight.  Fast, slow, or in-between, this attraction should not be missed.

The Tyrolian Challenge ropes course consists of an Indiana Jones like 100 foot  Tyrolian Express zip line on which riders reach speeds of almost 30 mph.

Colorado's longest Alpine Slide is located at Winter Park.  Riders board the Arrow Chair Lift for a scenic ride to the mountain's midway.  From there it's a mile and a half of  30 linked turns on two side by side tracks to the base.  No special skills are required and it's a perfect family sport.
Catch a ride on the Zephyr Mountain Express -- a state of the art 4 person lift.  In just 7 minutes you'll rise over 1600 feet and travel well over a mile.  Once at the top, you can enjoy nature walks, observe wildlife, or settle in for a relaxing snack at the Sunspot Lodge.   
The Human Maze is a labyrinth of turnarounds, dead ends, and blind alleys that leave adults wandering aimlessly.  Children on the other hand seem to find their way quickly to the exit.  It is newly designed each year.  Improve your time and win prizes.
The 18 hole mini golf course offers a clever lesson in the area's history with part of the course named after local events, place, and activities.  Try for par on "Mogul Run", the "Mary Jane Mine Shaft", and the "Moffat Tunnel".  No doubt you can imagine the hazards of these holes.  The course has a full range of water hazards, banked fairways and even a miniature moving chairlift.
Play disc golf on North America's highest course.  Ride the Zephyr Chairlift to over 2 miles above sea level.  Then enjoy disc golf with some of the grandest scenery you will ever see.  Disc rental is just $2 in addition to the Chairlift ticket.
All-terrain scooters are rented by the hour, half day, or full day.  Use them on designated trails at the Ski Resort.
50 miles of single track and mountain trails await the beginner to advanced rider.  If this is your first time, you can rent bikes and take a special getting started clinic.
