The YMCA of the Rockies Snow Mountain Ranch
Located on the outskirts of Rocky Mountain National Park, within 20 miles of Grand Lake and Winter Park, this 5,000-acre resort caters to families and groups looking for an abundance of activities. Options range from horseback riding, fishing, and rafting to skiing, sledding, and classes on everything from archery to calligraphy. The no-frills accommodations are well maintained and include cabins, yurts, campgrounds (for tents and RV’s), and hotel-style rooms in three different lodges. Most popular are the two- to four-bedroom cabins, which typically include a kitchen, stone fireplace, and open-air patio or balcony. An on-site dining hall serves buffet-style meals.
