We've had delightful lunches here on several occasions, including as recently as August 2014. But on this day in December, the three of us had a horrible experience. The food was very slow to come out from the kitchen in spite of a half-empty restaurant. The hostess apologized early-on for our server being a bit overloaded and put in our... More

Granby Ranch is incredible!!! If you dont like the crowds at some of the big resorts (especially on the weekends) then you must try Granby Ranch. This place is great for all ages but absolutely perfect for those wanting a place to ski, golf, fish, relax away from the big crowds. Teaching your kids or a family member, awesome place... More

Granby Ranch is by far one of the best choices in CO for families with kids under 10, both for skiing and lodging. You'll save a bundle by staying ski in ski out here versus Winter Park or Vail resorts and get no wait lift access, nice terrain parks, and peace of mind that your kids won't get lost, or... More

We took our 10 year old and two 8 year old boys on the free chairlift ride and hiked back down to the base area. The ride was great- very scenic, and the hike was very fun and manageable for the kids. The staff were friendly and helpful. A great day!!!

This was our first time to ski at Granby and even though very small we enjoyed ourselves. The price compared to the Bigger resorts was almost 1/2 and the friendliness of the people and the overall ski resort was just Great. It was definitely scaled to families with children learning to ski and first time but what a great place... More

Ski Granby is a family friendly ski area about 2 hrs west of Denver. The pluses: easy to get to (no tunnel traffic), almost every run ends up at the main base so the kids can't get lost, no lines, even when busy the runs aren't, great for beginners, private lessons are well worth the money, night skiing, movie nights...

Small ski resort. Only 2 chairlifts. The lift that accesses the more difficult terrain is a slow old chairlift. You can ski the entire mountain in one day. The runs are short. The blues are not technically challenging. Over all a good mountain for beginners or small children. Not a good ski resort for crushing difficult runs.

Had a great time skiing here over spring break. Ski school is the BEST here. They teach the kids to parallel ski vs snow plow. After two days, both kids (9 and 12) were going down the blue runs and could tackle any run on the east mountain, including trying out some of the terrain parks. If you have young... More
