Granby Ranch is an easily accessible mountain that is very family friendly and close to Denver. In the winter months, Granby Ranch offers 38 trails and over 400 acres of skiable terrain but in the summertime, that all changes.

As you plan out your summer to-do list, be sure to add a day (or two, or three, or more) at Granby Ranch to the list. All it takes is a short, 90-minute drive up I-70 from Denver and you are there. Ready to shred or ride.

It’s no surprise that we’ve decreased the amount of drought covering the State. The 2018/2019 winter was one for the record books. From early season snows, to record March snows, to late season big producing snowstorms, the effects of this have been mostly all good.
