Western Colorado Winter Activities

Snowmobile the White River and Flattops

Snowmobiling opportunities are amazing in the Flattops. Your adventure starts by snowmobiling up to your cabin and getting settled in. From here you are right on the trail system that takes you to miles of remote sledding. Beginners have miles of groomed trails and easy meadows to play in and enjoy the scenery. Advanced riders can go all day with vast meadows, stands of aspens and pines, and cornices as they go from 8100 feet at the ranch to well over 10,000 feet at Blair Mountain. All of this in an amazingly un-crowded winter paradise! At 8100 feet above sea level the ranch offers a fantastic setting for winter activities.

Winter adventures abound...

Activities make for a true family adventure. Everyone can enjoy sledding, ice-skating, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling. There is always the ever-dangerous snowball fights or the warmth of the lodge while enjoying a board game, great book, or just a cup of hot chocolate. During winter season you'll park three miles from the ranch at Huffman's Gulch Campground. You're then shuttled to the ranch via snowmobiles, making for an incredible commute.
