Flying United Airlines, you and your family could be off to Colorado to explore the ski resorts of Winter Park and Steamboat. Your flights, accommodation and transfers, as well as a selection of activities are all covered, meaning all you’ll need to bring is a sense of adventure.

United operates nonstop flights from Melbourne to Los Angeles and from Sydney to Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco with convenient connections to more US ski destinations than any other airline. Flights from Australia are operated by 787-9 Dreamliners. All seats have in-seat power, USB ports and personal video screens with hours of movies, TV shows and games to keep you and your family entertained during the flight.

Steamboat is a family town, so it knows all about making your family feel welcome. With 169 trails and 1,200 hectares on six peaks to play on, Steamboat thrills everyone from beginners to experts, with advanced riders sure to love the tree skiing and the hair-raising Mavericks Superpipe and adjacent terrain park. When you’re not skiing or snowboarding, Steamboat has some wonderful activities to please everyone in the family, including the Outlaw Mountain Coaster, the longest alpine coaster in North America; the stunning Strawberry Park Hot Springs; riding a horse-drawn sleigh to dinner in the forest; and horse riding in the snow.

Located just 108 kilometres from Denver, Winter Park Resort is the closest major ski resort to Colorado’s capital city, with over 1,200 hectares of world-class terrain spread out over seven unique territories, all easily accessible by train thanks to the Winter Park Express service from Denver. Nestled along the Continental Divide, Winter Park boasts over eight metres of annual snowfall, setting up perfect conditions for exploring miles of cruising groomers, six terrain parks, bumps, steeps, trees and, most definitely, deeps. This year, Winter Park has added a new 10-person gondola as part of an unprecedented $30 million in overall capital improvements.

Zephyr Mountain Lodge is Winter Park Resort’s ski-in, ski-out base lodging, just 33 metres from The Gondola. You are as close to the slopes as lodging allows! Condominiums come in a range of sizes, including one-, two- and three-bedroom fully equipped condos. The property has four outdoor hot tubs, a fitness room, on-site Front Desk, interior hallways and comfortable lobby areas. The Village restaurants, retail shops and additional activities are within steps of these condominiums. Other amenities include heated underground parking ($16+/day in winter season) and on-site storage for your skis, snowboard or bike.

The Steamboat Grand Hotel blends Steamboat’s Western heritage with superior guest services and amenities in a premier mountain village location. In addition to luxuriously appointed rooms, the hotel features a large heated outdoor pool, two hot tubs, fitness facility with steam room and sauna and The Cabin restaurant and The Grand Café for food and drinks.
