I am so glad that we chose Granby Ranch for our first ski vacation. Our boys are 16, 15 and 12 and this was a great trip for everyone. We stayed at the Mountainside Condos so we could just ski right up to the condo when tired and needing a rest or when done at the end of the day. The resort is VERY small with only 4 ski lifts and just a few slopes, but it was perfect for our ability levels. We took a lesson the first day and the instructor was great. He was very patient and we all learned quickly. The resort is about 5 miles from the town so we really needed a car to get around. We rented a car from Janet at Avalanche Car Rental in Grandy. It is the only car rental place in town. There were a lot of workers from other countries at the resort. This certainly isn't an issue unless they do not speak English and cannot answer my questions (we experienced this just a few times...but not really a big issue). The ski rental place was great, as was the lift ticket purchase experience. We did not put any kids in the day care, but we saw lots and lots of little kiddos having a great time with their classes. We were there over New Year's Eve and the fireworks show was great! It started at 6 pm so we could still go out afterwards. I don't think that we will go back to Granby Ranch, but I am so glad that we chose Granby Ranch for our fist trip.
