Snow Mountain Ranch

Cabin, campground in Winter Park

For an inexpensive family getaway in the Rockies, this YMCA can't be beat. Located 14 miles north of Winter Park off Hwy 40, it has a plethora of activities year-round, from horseback riding, mountain biking and challenge courses in summer to over 60 miles of cross-country trails in the winter (rental equipment available), plus tubing, fatbiking and even dog sledding.

Even if you're not sleeping here, it's worth checking out for the daytime activities.
