Best Cross-Country Ski Resort in Colorado

2020/2021 Nordic season open to the public with passes

Our 120km of wide-open, perfectly-groomed Nordic trails are voted the best cross-country destination in North America and the ideal place to get outside, get active, and social distance this winter. As soon as snow allows, our trails will be open to the public with a day or season pass.

Colorado’s Premier Mountain Resort

75 Miles West of Denver. 15 Minutes from Winter Park. A World Away From Everything.

At Devil’s Thumb Ranch we offer experiences that embrace the pioneering spirit of the early homesteaders while honoring and preserving the pristine landscapes for future generations. Here, guests are invited to participate in real, authentic ranch adventures from horseback riding, fly fishing, and cross-country skiing, to fat tire mountain biking, zip lining, and more on over 6,500 acres of Rocky Mountain wilderness. Of course, such a luxurious escape would be incomplete without refined modern comforts like our renowned spa, acclaimed restaurants, elegant lodge accommodations, and private rustic cabins. Simply unplug from everyday life and lounge by the year-round heated pool and hot tub, destress with daily yoga, or curl up by the fire, roast a marshmallow, and reconnect with the people who matter most. It is, dare we say, an authentic Colorado Ranch experience you simply can’t find anywhere else.
