After a few years of thinking about it, my family and I decided to visit Granby Ranch ski resort on December 30th. We will not be returning, ever. We were greeted by a single open ticket window and a 45 minute line to even obtain our lift passes (already purchased and paid for online). Despite the line, the mountain did not ever open a second window and the line was even longer by the time we had made it through. On the mountain we found only a single operating chairlift (that’s right, one lift, save for the bunny hill). At the lift, the lines extended across the entire base area (with little or no social distancing). Our wait times averaged about 45 minutes per trip. Once we finally did make it up for a run, we found sparse coverage and poor conditions, even on groomed runs. Apparently despite the fact that lift capacity is diminished by COVID restrictions, and only one lift was operating due to poor snow conditions, the resort has seen fit to continue to sell tickets as if nothing were amiss and it was operating at full capacity. There is one word for this. Greedy. No, wait, two. Shameful. This is no way to treat paying customers and no way to run a business. Please think again before spending your money at a resort like this one that cares so little about its guests. There are many other resorts that have adjusted their practices (both for COVID and for snow conditions) and are delivering a great guest experience. Unfortunately, Granby Ranch is not one of them.
