For the third time USA Today readers named Winter Park Resort the best in North America, beating out 19 other nominated North American resorts for the coveted title.

Every year USA Today’s ski and adventure travel experts curate a top 20 list of the best ski resorts in North America. Then, they turn over voting to readers, who choose their favorite after a month of public voting.

“USA Today readers represent our guests across the country, and our top priority is to make sure every guest has an amazing time at Winter Park, no matter what adventure they choose. Whether they ski or snowboard, tube or snowshoe, or are really good at après, we’re honored they chose Winter Park as their favorite,” said Liz Agostin, Winter Park Resort vice president of marketing.

Winter Park Resort has long been a favorite of adventure travelers and those wanting to venture out because of its wide and varied terrain for every skier and rider ability level, and its decidedly unpretentious, authentic Colorado vibe.

The resort is close enough to Denver to make it convenient for day-trippers or destination visitors traveling from the airport, yet it’s tucked away just west of the Continental Divide, giving guests a true mountain experience.

Winter Park also took home the Best Ski Resort in North America title in 2018 and in 2019.

The only other Colorado resort in the rankings is Summit County’s Copper Mountain in sixth place.

Following Winter Park Resort in the rankings are Sunshine Village in Alberta, Canada, Palisades Tahoe in Olympic Valley, California, Mount Bohemia in Lac La Belle, Michigan, Kirkwood Mountain Resort in Kirkwood, California, Copper Mountain, Brundage Mountain Ski Resort in McCall, Idaho, Stowe Mountain Resort in Stowe, Vermont, Lake Louise Ski Resort in Alberta, Canada and Revelstoke Mountain Resort in British Columbia, Canada.
