“Great Little Hill to get better on”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

My wife and I after a few years of not skiing wanted to get back into it by skiing a few small hills and getting our legs / skis back under us. This is a great little ski area that has no lift lines. Ski down...ride right back up. We used their package deal with a lift ticket, ski rental & a 2 hour lesson for only $93 per person. The lesson was basically private, just my wife and I with the instructor. Michael the head of the ski school was very personable and we make sure to tell him hello each time we go back. Everyone at the area is so friendly and so glad that you have come there to spend the day. In the fall we bought a four pack of tickets for only $119. We wished we had picked up another. 33 inch base in January with limited traffic in and out of Colorado. No I-70 battle to the big resorts. This little hidden gem is only 2 and a half hours from Denver. We've already been twice this season and we're getting better already.

“Small hill, no crowds!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Snowy Range is exceptional skiing for the beginner-intermediate! The hill is pretty small, but the crowds are minimal, so you actually spend more time skiing since you aren't waiting in line. Very reasonable prices too. Snowy Range is just 40 minutes from Laramie, so it makes an easy day trip from Laramie or Fort Collins.

“Great for Families”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

We visit every weekend and find this ski area so relaxing. We love the big mountains once in awhile but Snowy Range is a great place. The owners are amazing and really trying to create a great small ski area. If you are learning this is a wonderful place. If you are with kids who can ski, they are so safe and independent on these hills. There are great lessons, ski clubs and bands. It is a short drive from Northern Colorado and Southeast Wyoming. The affordable prices make learning a pleasure.

“Fantastic place to learn!”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

We moved to WY from Australia, and the 2011-2012 season was our first experience with snow. We purchased the early bird season passes and drove from Laramie most weekends. We rented equipment everytime as the prices are very reasonable. We started off with one snowboarding lesson (which was great!) and braved the mountain on our own for the rest of the season as we slowly got more advanced. There are hardly any lines, even on a powder weekend! The staff are fantastic, and I can not recommend Snowy Range enough.
