360° Action in Winter Park: Flying High with the British Park & Pipe Team

Last month, the Great Britain Park & Pipe Team shredded their way through Winter Park and made Natural Retreats their home base for all the action.

With the massive impact that this El Nino season has had on the Winter Park area – namely, the 200-plus inches of snow – the slopes of Winter Park Mountain made for an excellent playground for these exceptionally talented young men and women.

The team, consisting of Olympic hopefuls, had a blast shredding the mountain, meeting the Winter Park moose, and spending time off the mountain in the comfort of Black Bear Hill, one of our gorgeous luxury cabins.
