Winter Park Highlands Association
Winter Park Highlands Association is a voluntary association offering membership to all property owners in Winter Park Highlands, Tabernash, Colorado. Your membership supports WPHA in providing valuable services and making our community a better place to live. Every property owner in the Highlands faces challenges that arise from living in the mountains, from clearing snow in the winter to protecting our properties from fire danger in the summer. Facing such challenges on our own can be daunting. Being a member of the Association allows each of us to benefit from collective strength. Join us and be a part of the future of the Highlands!

WHAT DOES A STAGE 1 BURN BAN MEAN?
A stage 1 fire ban prohibits open burning and the use of private fireworks, but allows fires at public and private commercial campgrounds in fire pits or grates. Open burning is defined as any type of outdoor fire including fires in pits, barrels, chimineas, charcoal fires on public property, and burning of slash piles and other debris. The ban does not include liquid or gas fueled stoves, fireplaces within buildings, self-contained and enclosed charcoal grills (off the ground) at private residences, and permanent fire pits or grates at established commercial campgrounds.
