Made for Families

Welcome Home

The most perfect ski destination for kids and their families, Granby Ranch brings the laid-back vibes of a Midwestern resort to the Rocky Mountains. Classic Colorado terrain, mountain views for miles and all of the big resort perks and amenities are here. Revel in the full resort experience minus the big lift lines, crowds, expense, and complexity.

Skiing Made Simple

Ski and snowboard your way, at your pace, where comfort and convenience are king. Ride four chair lifts to casual groomed slopes alongside untouched fresh powder. Or feel out your ski legs on the magic carpet. Granby Ranch offers something for every ability and age.


Mountain Layout

Granby Ranch unfolds across 400 mellow acres with East Mountain serving up attainable beginner and intermediate runs and West Mountain offering intermediate and black diamond terrain. At the top, drink in stunning views of Rocky Mountain National Park and the Continental Divide. At the base, relax in the lodge, indulge in delicious après favorites, hangout and warm up.



When it comes to ski resorts, smaller means easier. Affordable lift tickets, a convenient central location, very small lines and a casual, comfortable atmosphere make Granby Ranch the ideal family destination. Since Granby Ranch isn’t tied to any major resorts or passes, there’s no reservation system to wrangle and no mazes to wind around. Traverse, explore, learn, take your time and be yourselves.


Beginners Welcome!

New to the snow scene? Welcome! Granby Ranch is the perfect place to try downhill skiing and snowboarding, Nordic skiing and snowshoeing. Ski and ride school is incredibly approachable and affordable. Thoughtfully carved out trails and forgiving terrain keep the experience light and fun. Bring the whole family—non-skiers love to kick back at the base by the fire pit and cheer on loved ones as they ski down the mountain. All trails funnel back to the base, so you never miss a beat.


Family Activities

There’s always something happening at Granby Ranch. Ski as a family through the wild west mountaintop adventure zone. Take a snowshoe tour, skate and Nordic ski miles of freshly groomed track, try night skiing under the stars, ski with Olympians and take a mountaintop Snowga class with a certified yoga instructor. Sip cocktails and cocoa around the outdoor fire pit and enjoy genuine homegrown western hospitality.

Learn from the pros with ski and ride lesson options spanning half-day group sessions to private one-hour first-timer lessons.



Savor a full-service mountain dining experience. Grab lunch, dinner and take-out—including locally sourced burgers, house-smoked barbecue and Colorado brews — from Bluebird Bistro. Pop into the Slopeside dining hall for cheesy loaded nachos or handmade pizzas and check out the new ice bar at the top of East Mountain for scratch-made chili and a drink.
