With nearly 120km of trails nestled in the pristine and private Ranch Creek valley at the base of the Continental Divide, we’re the premier Nordic center for Colorado and North American cross country skiing. In fact, we were recently named #3 Best Cross-Country Ski Resort in the 2017 USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards. Whether you enjoy skate, classic or snowshoeing; there are exhilarating experiences waiting to happen.

Novices can start the day with a private or group lesson from one of our friendly instructors. More seasoned Nordic enthusiasts will find our advanced technique clinics helpful. And, of course, a wide variety of quality cross country ski equipment is available for purchase or rental – including child sleds and skijoring rigs. Dogs on leashes are welcome on our dog-friendly trails. Our Nordic Center and ski trails are open daily during ski season. With a daily trail pass, you pay one rental fee that allows for skiing and showshoeing that day.
