Out of an abundance of caution considering recent Coronavirus developments, and with respect for the health and safety of our staff, guests, and community, Our Nordic Trail System is closed as of the morning of Monday, March 16th, 2020. For more information regarding Devil’s Thumb Ranch’s closure, click here.

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.

Closed for the 2019/2020 Season
