“Great time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013 via mobile

First, the not so great: the linens were clean but a little worn looking & the furniture is definitely dated. Bring your own soaps

The great: everything else! The buffet style dining always had something everyone in my family enjoyed. There were lots of activities tubing, arts & crafts(extra charge depending on what you want) cross-country skiing trail, everyone was so nice & welcoming. Things are spread out but they have a shuttle you can call which doesnt take too long. We found we preferred walking in the snow!

We stayed at Snow Mountain Ranch in July. We had a 4 bedroom house that had plenty of space! I wouldn't say it was luxury, but it fit our families needs just fine. It was clean and had a full kitchen so we made most meals there. We hit a Safeway about 10-15 minutes before arriving. The weather was beautiful! We needed sweatshirts in the evening. The camp had lots of fun things to do. Some of our favorites were horseback riding, making walking sticks and making crafts! The kids also liked the rock wall, rollerskating, hiking, putt-putt and swimming. We drove to Winter Park one day and bought a day pass for the Alpine Slide, Bungee Jump, Miniature Golf, etc. We loved spending the day there. The Y-Camp had wonderful scenery. Our view from our deck was beautiful. Everyone who worked at the camp was very friendly and helpful! I recommend it for a family trip in the summer! It was great family time for a good price!

The YMCA Camp of the Rockies Snow Mountain Ranch has family activities and offers a wonderfully warm Christian welcome!
As a married gay male Christian couple with a four year old, it was a great experience.
Breakfast horseback ride was delightful - great scenery along a mountain stream with a fascinating wrangler leading our three person group.
Making walking sticks from a tree branch and then burning designs and our names into them and coating them with polyurethane was fun.
Evening campfire worship service and s'mores was good. It was led by talented college musicians with a great message on patience. Important for fathers of a Type A toy year old.! ;)
The Craft Shop is amazing with all kinds of activities for all ages - leather working, pottery, wooden building and animals - too much to describe here. You and/or your child could stay at the craft shop all day.
The indoor swimming pool is great with a rock wall - you just drop into the pool when you're done.
The RV campsite has a great view of the Rockies in several directions and the guests were amazingly friendly.
There's also archery, canoeing, Putt Putt Golf, and some amazing hiking on the 5,500 acres with mountains, lakes, and streams.

We went to Snow Mountain ranch for a family gathering. 3 couples stayed at the campground while the children and their young children stayed at Indian Peaks Lodge. All of our accomodations were topnotch! Campgound was clean and scenery absolutely beautiful from there. We especially enjoyed the hike to the Waterfall and a horseback ride. We saw 2 young moose on the Waterfall trail and that was exciting! We will definitely come back, probably next summer with another even larger family gathering. The activities are particulary great for young children and their parents to enjoy together.

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies at Indian Peaks Lodge provide a spectacular view, and the playground just outsi...

Went to Snow Mountain Ranch for a family vacation for three days. We had a wonderful time. We stayed in a three bedroom two bathroom cabin that had a full kitchen with dishwasher and bunk beds for the kids to enjoy. We were a one mile hike from the main area of the resort, and we walked it once or twice.

As a family we really enjoyed the variety of activities, from archery to miniature golf to rock climbing. As a family we especially enjoyed doing the arts and crafts. The coolest activities do cost a little more, but not very much. One of the original homesteads was largely intact and we enjoyed going there to hear history from an interpretive storyteller.

We read that the food there was not great so we brought all our own meals. Plus, the dining facility was very far from our cabin.

Sometimes the staff wasn't quite on the ball, which is why I only gave it a 4. Nothing serious, just occasionally late for activities or having forgotten an activity roster.

We loved it so much we already are booked to return again! Thanks for the great family memories.

Wife and I stayed with son and grandson Fri-Mon. Beautiful location; lovely cabin; kitchen well stocked with pots, pans, silverware, plates, glassware. Relaxing sofa/chairs after hard days of hiking, swimming, miniature golf, lawn games, playgrounds, or just sitting on the porch admiring the view.

Room Tip: From the pictures I saw and the hiking I did, I expect all cabins to be pretty much like ours, so ju...

This was our 8th year going here! We still get so excited going here! The craft shop, horse back riding, and all the other activities at Snow Mt. Ranch are great! I highly recommend the horse back riding!

This was our 6th time staying at Mt. Pine. The first few nights were good, but then one night we had the bathroom window open. Turns out there was a hole in the screen! So a bat comes flying in! The kids are screaming, as we try to get the bat! Finally one of us (I can't remember who!) hits the bat with the fire poker. We tried to find it and can't! So we call maintenance and they come on up to help us look. They can't so they leave.

Finally we find the bat in a suitcase! We toss the suitcase out, with the bat in it. We decide that we will not be staying in the cabin, so we get a room at the lodge. This was surprisingly very nice! It was clean, and a great place to hang our hats for the night!

The next morning we get moved to the nicest 4 bedroom vacation home on the property for the same price as we would pay for with Mt. Pine! I think the vacation home was called Misty. It sat right at the top of the mountain.

Over all the staff was superb, from helping us with the bat, to finding new accommodations for us. We can't wait to come back next year!
