“We welcomed new snow and a host of skiers and riders on opening day and it was nothing but laughter and COVID compliant air-fives. Even our ski school was cranking, including plenty of never-ever-skiers coming to Granby Ranch to enjoy the start to winter,” said Jace Wirth, General Manager. “I was proud of our entire team for the work and focus they put into getting the mountain open as well as the dedication and adherence to our COVID-19 protocols.”

The resort will be providing daily updates on the opening of additional terrain and chairlifts via and the Granby Ranch Resort App. “Snowmaking efforts are going quite well, and we look forward to providing daily updates to all of our customers via the Granby Ranch Resort App, as we all can’t wait to access the great terrain served by Quick Draw and other chairlifts,” said Wirth. The resort also announced the continuation of the uphill access program for pass holders on the Easy Money trail. “Uphill access on our East Mountain was a big hit and we are glad to continue that program, while work continues on Quick Draw.”

Granby Ranch will be hosting additional Drive-In movies, Sno-Ga, Free Hot Cocoa, and other events to continue the celebratory atmosphere all weekend. Additional updates and details can be found at and via the all-new Granby Ranch Resort App available in all app stores.
