We’ve put together a list of our favorite things to do in and around Granby during the winter. Join us in checking off these fun winter activities!

Ski (and Night Ski) at Granby Ranch

Ski or ride all day, and even at night on the lit runs (and the stars) on East Mountain. Explore Granby Ranch in a whole new light! 

Go on a Horse-Drawn Sleigh Ride

Break out those mittens, pull on that cozy sweater, and get ready to embark on a whimsical winter sleigh ride with Rocky Mountain Stables. Glide past snow-frosted pines and scenic mountain vistas, all ending at a crackling bonfire complete with hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows.

Head to the Tubing Hill

Feel the rush of the wind on your face as you zoom down the mountain on the tubing hill at Snow Mountain Ranch. In addition, in the nearby town of Fraser, additional tubing can be found at Colorado Adventure Park and the Fraser Tubing Hill.

See the Model Train

Experience Colorado's Largest Permanent Christmas Model Train Display at the Moffat Road Railroad Museum which includes six trains, two ski lifts, and a Christmas village.  

Enjoy the Outdoors through Cross Country Skiing

The Snow Mountain Ranch Nordic Center offers some of the best nordic skiing in the country with 120K of world-class terrain meandering through pine forest, wide meadows and along Pole Creek. 

Go Snowshoeing in Rocky Mountain National Park

When Rocky Mountain National Park is covered with a blanket of snow, the crowds have left and the places you know during the summer look dramatically different.  

Go on a Dog-Sled Ride

Do you dream of yelling “Mush!” to a team of huskies in the blinding snow? Live out your dream by dog sledding at Snow Mountain Ranch this winter!

Ice Fish at the 3 Lakes Ice Fishing Contest

Ice fish on beautiful Lake Granby, Shadow Mountain Reservoir, and Grand Lake in the longest-running ice fishing tournament West of the Mississippi.

Go Ice Skating

Strap on some skates and glide across the ice rink at Snow Mountain Ranch, or down the road at the Icebox Ice Rink in Fraser.

Enjoy dining and shopping in Downtown Granby

Grab a coffee, enjoy a hearty meal or go shopping in downtown Granby.
