Our condo is in the Kicking Horse Lodge part of Granby Ranch. Private entrance, so no need to take any elevators and very few stairs form the parking lot to the front door. Granby Ranch is a very picturesque, small, private area that is nestled back beyond the main road. There is a base camp lodge where you can rent skis and other equipment. They have two restaurants open during ski season, and is open on a limited basis depending on events the rest of the year. There is a grocery store, liquor store, gas station, etc. within 5 miles of the condo (at the entrance to granby Ranch). Our condo is considered a ski in/ski out condo, you will have to walk however about 40 yards from our front door to the slope. Base camp however is less than a mile from our front door to catch the main lifts if you would prefer to drive. Check out www.granbyranch.com for more info about the area and offerings. You can also visit www.facebook.com/skisolvista. In the summertime the slopes and lifts change for mountain biking and hiking. They usually have at least one mountain bike event each year in the summertime.
My name is Laura and my husband is Glenn. We have two boys ages 9 and 5. We also have a Swissy puppy named Pepper that loves to hike with us. We live in the Denver area, both in the technology/distribution industry, but love to escape to the mountains whenever we can, no matter the time of year. We have family scattered across the US so are always looking for ways to visit them and thought this would be a great way to do it and be able to share our second home as well. We are also always looking for great vacation ideas for us and the kids so are open to any destination that might be offered.
