Winter Elegance in Grand County

When the darkness and slush of winter in the city get you down, it’s time to get away to the countryside to bask in pristine snow and stillness.  Join us for an unforgettable excursion to the C Lazy U Ranch in scenic Grand County.  We’ll celebrate the rich history of this luxurious dude ranch founded in 1919 just west of Rocky Mountain National Park. Enjoy two nights in rustic cabins and an array of winter activities like snowshoeing, snowmobiling, sleigh rides, horseback riding, campfires and more!  Once you taste the silence and beauty of winter in the mountains, you can’t imagine a happier fate than a long and lustrous winter!  Let's gather by the fire together.

Includes two nights’ stay at the C Lazy U Ranch, bus transportation, all meals, activities, guides and admissions.
