Skiers at Colorado's Winter Park resort often find themselves being passed by amputees zipping along on specialized skis or folks wearing Day-Glo orange vests with "Blind Skier" emblems.They also notice a preponderance of kids enjoying the snowy terrain as well.This unpretentious ski resort, nestled in the Arapaho National Forest 67 miles from Denver, is favored by disabled skiers and parents with kids in tow for good reason.The resort's small-town, down-home atmosphere and its sampling of family ski lodges have made it a choice destination for the family crowd.

TRAVEL
By Lester A. Picker and Lester A. Picker,SPECIAL TO THE SUN | January 9, 2000
Think of Colorado skiing, and names such as Vail, Aspen and Winter Park race to mind faster than a daredevil run down a double-black diamond. An average of 30 feet (that's right, feet) of powdery snow each season sounds mighty good to us mid-Atlantic skiers, so long as we don't have to shovel the stuff. But my annual winter trip West this time was a mixture of excitement and anticipation. I could easily imagine the exhilarating downhill runs on the slopes of the Rockies, with the tingly, dry mountain air whipping my face.
