Tuesday, March 14, 2017 Leave a Comment

Any plans for spring break yet? If not, why not spend it at the YMCA of the Rockies? With two locations, they offer fun for all ages among Colorado's gorgeous mountains. For more details, also check out our recent Stapleton Moms post about Snow Mountain Ranch.

Snow Mountain Ranch:

As a year-round destination, a stay at Snow Mountain Ranch brings groups and families together to relax and enjoy the outdoors. With a huge selection of activities, most included at no cost for overnight guests, everyone in the family will find something to do. From young to old, there’s an activity or program that will delight even the toughest of “too cool” teenagers. Accommodations ranges from hotel-style lodge rooms, yurts, cozy cabins, or mega reunion cabins sleeping up to 44 guests. Plus, guests who stay in lodge rooms receive two free breakfasts for each night booked.

For downhill skiers, Snow Mountain Ranch is conveniently located between the alpine ski resorts of Winter Park/Mary Jane and Ski Granby Ranch and offers an alpine ski/snowboard rental shop on-site.

Some unique on-site Spring Break activities include: dog sledding, fat tire snow bikes, Nordic (cross-country) skiing, tubing/sledding, ice skating, snowshoeing, horseback riding, indoor archery, indoor climbing wall, swimming pool with water slides and climbing wall, a loaded craft center, ping-pong, basketball, and roller skating, plus creative weekly programming such as a human Hungry Hungry Hippos game, snow games, curling, and snow fort building
