Granby Ranch

Granby, CO

Granby Ranch is a four-season mountain community nestled in the Rocky Mountains and located just 90 miles from Denver, Colorado, and 20 miles from Winter Park, Colorado and the western entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. The resort and community is home to family-friendly skiing at Ski Granby Ranch, world-class downhill and cross-country mountain biking at Bike Granby Ranch, as well as Golf Granby Ranch, an 18-hole championship mountain golf course. You'll also find private, gold-medal fishing, and family dining at Granby Ranch Grill. It's a true mountain playground, with chairlift access to thousands of acres of hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing trails.

The Broome Hut

Winter Park, CO

Owned and operated by the Grand Huts Association, the Broome Hut, originally called the Second Creek Hut, in the Second Creek Basin on the west side of Berthoud Pass, Colorado is one of the finest high altitude skiing and hiking locales in Colorado. Ease of access and great skiing make for excellent backcountry recreation opportunities. 

Layout and capacity: 2 bunk rooms with 6 beds each and 2 private rooms each of which sleeps 2. Capacity 16. 

Additional Amenities: The Broome Hut has some unique amenities which include a pellet stove instead of a woodburning heat stove. It is very easy to operate and has clear instructions posted at the hut. The hut has indoor composting toilets similar to Janet's Cabin and Francie's Cabin. There is also a day-use room at the hut but it is totally separated from the overnight area and they share no amenities. Because of the popularity of the area for day-use you may encounter dogs along the trail and around the hut. But dogs are absolutely not allowed for overnight hut users and are not allowed anywhere inside the Hut.

The High Lonesome Hut

Fraser, CO

Andrew Miller grew up in his family’s ski lodge, where ski vacations meant staying in pine paneled rooms and eating family style at long tables. As a teenager he visited European huts, similar to cabins being built in the Colorado mountains. He began a search for a site for a cabin, finding the Lonesome Hut property in 1995. For the past 14 years, the cabin has hosted 23 blind skiers from England, several Middle Park High School science classes on overnight trips, a group of at risk teenage boys from the Lost and Found School in Denver who built a neat trail named after their school. Lonesome Hut LLC is now a group effort, my partners in this enterprise lend their energy to a refuge we hope you will enjoy. The High Lonesome Hut is located east of US 40 between Fraser and Tabernash, near Meadow Creek Reservoir, about 65 miles west of Denver and 15 minutes west of Winter Park. From US Hwy 40, drive County Road 83 to CR 84 to the Trailhead Parking area (4 miles). The trail to the hut is 2.5 miles long. A detailed map is included in your reservation packet.
