Just came back from a weekend of skiing and snowshoeing at Royal Gorge, our last trip for this skiing season and another fantastic experience! Unlike the long lines at the equipment rental in most ski resorts, the equipment rental at Royal Gorge is super quick. But what’s really amazing is that everyone is super friendly and helpful. The trails are... More

While it is a cross-country resort, I visited to go snowshoeing. The resort has a huge network of trails, so there is something for everyone to choose from, weather permitting. I stuck to the easier trails with my snowshoes and had a great time. Even though it was a Sunday, I never felt there were too many people around, and... More

There was not a lot of runs open due to not enough snow. But the staff knocked the prices down because of this. I just love the staff here, very hospitable people. They make you feel like family. I absolutely love coming here. Get exercise, peace, quiet and beauty all in one. ❤️

I have been skiing as well as snowboarding. Both were fun although I had a hard time snowboarding, It was more like buttboarding for me. I fell on my butt constantly. I heard cross country skiing was fun and yet so beautiful. We headed to Royal Gorge, I could've been here all day. We had so much fun, they have... More

One of the most extensive nordic trail systems is back and creating the magic of endless cross-country skiing opportunities. Some of the most memorable trail systems all linked together and viewpoints that are sure to make you pull out your camera. It is a treat to ski here and each time feels like I cannot cover enough terrain.

Largest cross country ski resort in North America. Truly breath taking. Has the authenticity of true Tahoe, in that it is low key, but boasts amazing views and trails. I have been several times, and have never had a bad trail.

It was summer so no skiing, It is but it is back in the woods so nice and scenic. It was an exploratory trip for the upcoming winter.

My friend and I took an introductory cross country lesson. We had taken one other lesson on this trip. It was my second time on skis of any kind and I felt so much improved with another lesson. The instructor was knowledgeable, patient and friendly. The lesson was well worth the extra money. Once you pay for the rental and... More
