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 cross-country skiing. In fact, we were named #1 Cross-Country Ski Resort in North America in the 2018 and 2019 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. 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 snowshoeing that day.
