Though we are not directly affiliated with the YMCA of the Rockies, we are fortunate to be able to use their Snow Mountain Ranch facilities in Fraser, Colorado for 6 out of 11 of our camps. A family vacation destination in itself, Snow Mountain Ranch is nestled on 5,100 acres in a beautiful wilderness setting just two hours west of Denver.
Most everything you would like in a Colorado mountain vacation package is right there, including hiking, fishing, canoeing, swimming, roller skating, volleyball, tennis, horseback riding, hayrides, and more!
Snow Mountain Ranch is located a few miles west of the ski resort, Winter Park, which has a full roster of summertime fun and activities. Snow Mountain is also just a few miles east of Granby and Grand Lake, Colorado, both of which boast many summer activities, including boating on large lakes (for Colorado). Forget that expensive skiing in Colorado –summer is the best and most beautiful time to be here!
Lodging Rates for Snow Mountain Ranch Camps
Though each lodging package is individualized per family based on your choice, number in the family, etc., this year’s average lodging rate for a family of four is approximately $250 per night and includes breakfast and dinner. Culture-specific lunches are served as part of Heritage Camp. Each lodge room sleeps anywhere from four to six people, and has a private bathroom.
Camping is also available onsite at Snow Mountain Ranch, ranging from sites with full RV hook-ups to basic tent sites. The average cost to camp is $60 per night. The camp grounds have full heated showers and bathroom facilities.
You can also rent a cabin at Snow Mountain Ranch, but this is not part of our contract. You must contact them directly at 800–777-YMCA to make your cabin reservation after April 1st, and it is first come, first served only. Cabins fill up quickly!
