Of course, you can dance, sing, and play music all day. Or hang out by the fire or play cards with friends.
Here are some additional opportunities our location offers:
About a 10 minute drive away, Cottonwood Hot Springs is open from 8 a.m. until 12 midnight. $18 per person Monday through Thursday, and $20 per person on the weekend. Mt. Princeton Hot Springs is also fairly close.
Downhill Skiing & Snowboarding
There are three areas within about an hour's drive from the Ranches:
- Copper Mountain. Over 2400 acres of varied terrain, including wide-open bowls for advanced skiers. 58 miles from the Ranches. 970-879-7772.
- Ski Cooper. The closest and "friendliest" resort. A small hill, great for beginners and families. Advanced skiers can go backcountry by snow cat. 800-707-6114.
- Monarch Mountain. Steeper than Cooper with the home-town resort feel. 670 acres along the Continental Divide. 719-530-5000.
- Breckenridge, Vail, and Keystone are also fairly close.
Gear can be rented at The Trailhead, a local store. Call 719-395-8001 for prices. When the snow is good, you can XC or Telemark Ski right from your cabin. If there's less snow around the ranches, several scenic trails are within a 45-minute drive.
Bring your own snowshoes or rent a pair from Adventure Unlimited: $5 per person for the weekend. Return after each use.
Wuhoo! Stellar participants can use Adventure Unlimited sleds for free.
