Great for beginners, flatlanders, no crowds
1000 ft vert.
Ski Granby Ranch is a great place for beginner and intermediate skiers. I also got truly amazing military discount lift tickets ( $29.00 ). For a flatlander from Nashville, this is a great place for an affordable vacation with ski in ski out condos. The lower elevation means it is probably not as cold as nearby Winter Park, and all the slopes lead back to the same chair. It is easy to find others in your group, just hang out at the base lodge and they will show up eventually. And the snow tubing in Faser is too much fun. There was never a lift line either.
