Enjoy some of the most spectacular views that Colorado has to offer while you sample gourmet food, sip on fine wines and chug microbrew. Everyone receives a commemorative wine glass or beer pilsner and unlimited samples of food and drink. Even though this should be enough to satisfy most anyone, there is a whole lot more going on at the Rocky Mountain Wine, Beer & Food Festival.
This famous event is held at the base of Winter Park Resort where you can find a 600-mile hiking and mountain biking trail system that spreads throughout the beautiful Fraser Valley. Winter Park is also home of the longest Alpine Slide in Colorado! A 3000-foot long slide, with a 600-foot drop winding through the wilderness. Take a chairlift to the top of Winter Park Mountain and you can find an 18 hole disc golf course, as well as 360-degree views of the Rocky Mountains. Back at the base, there is also a miniature golf course that takes you through Fraser Valley history, a climbing wall, Rock N’ Roll Gyro, Human Maze, Leaps & Bounds Bungee and a whole lot more.
Proceeds of this event will benefit the National Sports Center for the Disabled, which is one of the most important organizations found at Winter Park Resort.
