Colorado Skiing Without the Crowds

Located just 90 miles west of Denver, Granby Ranch is a family-owned ski resort designed and operated with families in mind. The resort is laid out with two mountains, east and west, each offering different types and difficulties of terrain. While the East side is largely green and blue, the West side offers some more challenging blues and blacks, but all trails lead back to the base area, so family and friends can easily meet back at the same place.

Everything about Ski Granby Ranch is EASY. Easily accessible–only two right turns from Denver. Easy to park (close-in and free). Easy to afford. And widely regarded as one of the best areas in Colorado to learn to ski/ride on acres of beginner slopes. Every Athlete Started Young–EASY.
