Granby Ranch Golf & Ski Ranch

Granby Ranch Golf & Ski Ranch is more than a four-season resort, it’s a true community with plans for world-class amenities.

With approximately a 5,500 acre canvas upon which to create her vision, Marise Cipriani realized the opportunity that lay before her – to create a community within the resort.

Plans are in place for an intimate village to grow up in the center of the resort. It will feature small neighborhoods, where neighbors know one another’s name, and always have a minute to stop and say hello. At the heart of the village, shops and restaurants will welcome guests.

Granby Ranch will immediately feel familiar and comfortable, but each new year will bring more amenities and new surprises that will continue to feed your taste for adventure and your sense of community.

Granby Ranch ski area is comprised of two separate yet inter-connected mountains. East Mountain’s terrain is primarily beginner and intermediate, while West Mountain’s terrain is primarily intermediate and advanced with limited beginner access. A separate learn-to-ski park features a surface lift for beginners.

The Granby Ranch base lodge is a central, three-story base facility housing lift ticket sales, ski school desk, information desk, rentals, retail shop, lost and found, lockers, cafeteria, restaurant, lounge, and selected administrative offices. First-aid facilities are in the Ski Patrol building just east of the Base Lodge.

Granby Ranch is located two miles south of Granby and 15 miles north of Winter Park. Both towns are known for a multitude of outdoor activities. Granby is a full-service mountain community with a strong ranching heritage. Services include a variety of restaurants and bars, banks, convenience stores, medical services, automotive services, grocery store, florists, and shopping. The Winter Park/Fraser area offers many of the same conveniences, with added restaurants and bars, shopping and a movie theatre.
