Coming soon to the Winter Park/Fraser Valley and in the heart of Winter Park, the new transit center should be open very early February. Great news for visitors and locals alike as this area off Vasquez Road adjacent to the Cooper Creek Complex has had an over-haul. Construction began this summer to include a bus turn around and drop off/pick up, Big Trout Brewing Company and local Granby based coffee shop, Lion Head Coffee. The area will serve as a hub for the Lift buses, as well as a place to purchase Amtrak tickets.
Outdoor seating, a bike wash station in the summer and covered parking round out the perks of this new addition in downtown Winter Park. I personally can’t wait – It’ll be convenient for my kids to take the bus from a day of skiing and riding at Winter Park Resort and have a place to hang out and wait for me as I always seem to be running, oh, a few minutes behind! It’ll serve as a gathering spot in the morning as you wait for your Lift to the ski area while sipping coffee, and again in the afternoon as you enjoy your après beer and snacks that you earned after a full day of activity both winter and summer.
This past Tuesday, the Winter Park Town Council even approved a snowmelt system for the adjacent sidewalks. Big Trout Brewing hopes to start brewing beer next month with an opening date of mid-March and Lion Head Coffee too projects a mid-March open. Just in time for oh, the Spring Break crowds!

Originally from the east and more recently, Indiana, my husband and I have been vacationing here since the early 1990's. In 2013, we purchased a second home in Fraser. Our twin boys, who have been ski racing since a young age, joined the Winter Park Competition Center Full-Time Academy in 2014 and their passion for competing prompted us to relocate to Winter Park permanently. I enjoy hiking, skiing, biking, photography, and teaching Spinning and Pilates. I chose a career in Real Estate to share my love for Winter Park and help others find their perfect mountain home!

"Mary was wonderful with our recent purchase of a second home in Fraser from long distance in the state of Michigan. She was an absolute delight to work with, very professional and we couldn’t have asked for a better realtor. She helped us navigate through a lot of issues and we would always highly recommend her!!!
