Ski Granby Ranch opens today with a limited amount of terrain. The resort is hosting a holiday food drive in conjunction with its opening called Carve Away Hunger. If you bring three food items, you will receive a discounted all-day lift ticket.
You can read about every Colorado ski resort in the Edge, our winter sports guide, as we roll it out online. Each description lays out what's new, what the signature experience is, what to splurge on, how to go cheap and, of course, what to drink.
SKI GRANBY RANCH
What’s new: Look for expanded night-skiing hours, an ever-larger system of Nordic ski trails, and new features in the log jib terrain park — take that, beetle-kill pine trees! — at one of the most family-friendly ski areas in Colorado.

Signature experience: Head for the East Mountain Nordic Trails, where two separate networks of groomed Nordic trails are available — one accessible by lift from Ski Granby Ranch, and the other at Golf Granby Ranch. Start on mellow quarter-mile loops and work up Nature’s Way, a 1.6-mile trek.
Splurge: Book a one-, two-, or three-bedroom condo at Base Camp One or a ski-in/ski-out slopeside home to make the most of your stay.
Ski bum tips: Night skiing, open Fridays and Saturdays from 5 to 8 p.m. for most of the season, is just $14, cheap enough to justify heading up after work (or if your legs are still going strong after a day of skiing at nearby Winter Park).
Drink locally: Granby Ranch Grill features Colorado brews from Grand Lake Brewing as well as a full dinner menu.
