I went back in 2006 with my mum and my mum's friends. I went for 2 weeks and had 18hours of ski school, planned out over 3 days. After that I was able to ski freely with my mum and co. The food there is fairly expensive depending on where you eat as there is loads of different restaurants all over the resort, but it is worth it. Our favourite was the Mary Jane Restaurant.
We stayed in a lodge about 10-15 minutes outside the resort. It was a very, very American winter styled lodge, but was really cute and comfortable.
Flying from Gatwick it took us about 10hours. We flew with Thompson and we had okay service :/
It is a very friendly resort, but you do get those maniacs every known and then who almost take your head off with their speed down the slopes ;) I have been to a couple of resorts and planning on going more in the next couple of years and none of them were or look as good as Winter Park, truly brilliant, I will definitely be back, but I may try Summer there this time with the mountain biking. (I travelled Februrary 2006 and the snow was 4ft-5ft tall)
