Winter and skiing On The Ranch

cross country skiing at Cement Creek Ranch

In the winter months we enjoy a special experience of peace and solitude up here at Cement Creek Ranch. After sufficient snowfall, access to Cement Creek Ranch in the winter is by a short (one mile) snowshoe or cross-country ski. This distance from the end of the plowed road provides much of the isolation that makes this spot so special. The ski in will dazzle you with glistening snow-covered pine trees and the rushing water of Cement Creek right next to the trail. If desired, a snowmobile ride can be arranged for your initial arrival and final departure.

Cement Creek Ranch is an ideal place to explore the Gunnison National Forest in the winter. Unbelievable snowshoeing, back-country and cross-country skiing are literally right out your door.After a beautiful day of playing in the snow, you can relax in your cozy cabin and enjoy the magnificent view. From your porch you will witness a spectacular show of stars in the night sky. Many visitors enjoy snowshoeing and skiing by the light of the moon. It is a great way to enjoy the glorious nights here at Cement Creek Ranch.
