This place is remote- and that's a good thing!

If you want to cross country ski somewhere that's off-the-beaten path but still has plenty of groomed trails then this is the place for you. A lot of Colorado's Nordic ski areas... read more

We visited for four nights in late March and were completely impressed with Snow Mountain Ranch. We stayed in the cabins. We chose SMR because it is dog friendly and close to Granby Ranch and Winter Park for our daughter to snowboard. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The cabin was spacious, comfortable and had a terrific view. The... More

This place is an amazing getaway. It has a wide variety of activities from horse back riding to zip lining. Hiking, swimming, arts and crafts to archery. It caters to everyone. There is a mess hall in the middle of the resort for your dining pleasure. As I said before it caters to everyone from the novice camper to the... More

This is a huge facility providing visitors with breath taking vistas and lots of family activities. A vacation here would be unforgettable. The people working at the Ranch are all very accommodating too.

We purchased a day pass during our ski vacation. For $ 20 adult (less for children) per day you have use of the entire facility! We used the ice skating rink (skate rental is included in the daily fee), did tubing (good, smaller hill for young children), and visited the stables. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly. You will... More

If you want to cross country ski somewhere that's off-the-beaten path but still has plenty of groomed trails then this is the place for you. A lot of Colorado's Nordic ski areas are right off the Interstate on a flat plane with a few trees scattered around. Snow Mountain Ranch has quite a few trails for different experience levels that...

Today is the last day in a week of fantastic cross-country skiing at Snow Mountain Ranch in Granby, Colorado. They have 100 kilometers of groomed trails at 2,800 - 3,000 meters altitude. I have skied here many times over the years, but the tracks have never been better than now. That is particularly important when you are a participant or... More

The Nordic Center has great cross country and snowshoe trails and equipment for rental. They are so helpful and prices are reasonable. When the kids had enough cross country skiing, they were able to tube and ice skate for free. We never made it to the pool or inside activities, but we saw them and they looked great also. Some...

We come up here twice a year for different camps and love it!!!! There are so many activities you can do here. Everyone will have something that they want to do. Everything is really easy to get to. Most places you can just walk to. We've been coming every year for 10+ years and always wish we had more time.... More

If you are looking for a 4 star hotel with Michelin Diamond rated food, then the Snow Mountain Ranch is not for you. However, if you are looking for a great family vacation destination with lots of things for the kids to do and a little roughing it along the way, then you can’t go wrong with SMR. It’s a... More
