A Few Words On The Snow

If you're waiting for a powder day at Ski Granby Ranch Resort, then you might have a long wait. Only 9.0% of winter days see more than 6 inches of snowfall, which means, on average, you'll have to spend 10 days or more mining the slopes at Ski Granby Ranch Resort to score that one great day. It could be worse, however. You could be muskie fishing.

Skiing at Ski Granby Ranch Resort is about getting outside, ripping up the slope, eating chili dogs and getting in as much vertical as you can. It's not about big dumps. And that's okay. This place is about honing your skills for that trip to Snowbird or Alaska. With only 2.0% of months at Ski Granby Ranch Resort getting more than 90 inches of snow, this isn't the place to set up your powderhound shack.

Drought Potential

If you're banking on snow and you're boarding a plane for a week at Ski Granby Ranch Resort, you should temper your expectations. This is a place where winter drought can grab hold of the weather pattern for long periods, as 35.0% of the winter months here see less than 30 inches of snow.

Getting to Ski Granby Ranch Resort, if you're flying in

At the end of the drive from the Denver airport to Ski Granby Ranch Resort, drivers will have been planted in their seats for nearly three hours (150 minutes), which, to us, is some kind of dark line that shouldn't be crossed unless utterly necessary--like, say, if you're going to Silverton Mountain for heli-drops. If that's the case, keep driving!
