Visit YMCA of the Rockies and Snow Mountain Ranch in November

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 Leave a Comment

November is a beautiful time to visit YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park and a perfect getaway for families looking for a fun way to celebrate Thanksgiving. The 10th-annual free Turkey Trot 5K Fun Run/Walk kicks off the festivities at 8:00 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day, and all ages (and dogs) are welcome. Advanced registration is encouraged and available online at http://bit.ly/2zAu0sl. Afterwards, families can enjoy the many activities on-site, such as creating tie-dye or ceramics in the craft center, taking an archery lesson together, or testing their courage on the climbing wall or brand new zip line (for ages 10 and older).

At Snow Mountain Ranch, the weekend kicks off on Wednesday night with a classic movie night showing A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. On Thursday, grab the family for a 3.5 K Turkey Trot and then enjoy some Human Hungry Hungry Hippos before the Turkey Games begin, including a turkey calling competition, hand turkey drawings, and pin the tail on the turkey. Stay for the full long weekend and get creative with holiday cookie decorating and weird science programs, plus dodgeball, bingo, pool volleyball, campfires with s’mores, and Moose on the Loose guided hikes or snowshoe treks, depending on the weather.

Accommodations at Snow Mountain Ranch range from hotel-style lodge rooms to cozy cabins to mega-reunion cabins sleeping up to 40 guests. Beyond the Thanksgiving activities, guests can enjoy Nordic skiing, fat biking, sledding, sleigh rides, expansive crafts room, indoor archery, indoor climbing wall, roller skating, swimming, and more...

Also, take advantage of the 110th Anniversary special to save on lodge rooms at Thanksgiving and for the rest of 2017. To celebrate the 110th anniversary of YMCA of the Rockies, 110 lodge rooms at both Estes Park Center and Snow Mountain Ranch are available for just $84per night, to be used by Dec. 31, 2017. Plus, each room includes two free breakfasts each day.
