What is one of the first things that comes to mind when thinking about what makes a ski resort a great ski resort? Snowfall! Winter Park gets the most snow of all of the major Colorado destination resorts, an average annual snowfall of over 29 feet. More snowfall means more powder days and that means more unforgettable days on the mountain which makes a great ski resort.
