-New ski lifts, night skiing/riding, spring events round out ‘what’s new’ at Granby Ranch-

granby-ranch-logoGranby, Colo. – Granby Ranch, the four-season mountain getaway, which is located less than two hours from Denver, today announced its new offerings and events for the upcoming winter season. The resort’s opening day is Thursday, Dec. 11.

“Granby Ranch is not your typical mountain getaway,” says resort CEO Kyle Harris. “It’s a place where family-friendly isn’t just a catch phrase – it’s part of our DNA.” Guests and residents come to Granby Ranch to escape the big-resort attitude, embrace the great outdoors and connect with each other on the mountain, at the Grill, or around the fire pit for drinks and s’mores. “We deliver Colorado skiing and riding for less than other mountain resorts, and with a trail network that starts and ends at Base Lodge, it’s easy for families of all abilities to play together.” Visitors may choose from a range of lodging options, including privately owned slope-side condos, townhomes, cabins or luxury homes.
