Snow Mountain Ranch is ideal for active dogs and their ownersWe have another great summer vacation for you and your dog in our “Destination Pooch!” section.

 The YMCA of the Rockies has two affordable family resort locations here in Colorado and they consider dogs family!  Each location has different pet friendly activities

Nestled in the mountains near Winter Park is Snow Mountain Ranch.
At Snow Mountain Ranch pets are welcome in the 2-5 bedroom family cabins.

In the winter months active dogs and their owners can enjoy snowshoe and cross country skiing trails!  During the summer – those trails become pet friendly hiking trails.

The Estes Park Center – YMCA of the Rockies welcomes pets in the 2-4 bedroom family cabins. During the summer months the YMCA Library hosts “Yappy Hour” on Friday afternoons.  Yappy Hour includes: Yappetizers along with doggy drinks and special guests each week will provide a variety of pooch programs (canine nutrition, obedience & agility, veterinarian tick and giardia advice, etc.)

The Estes Park Center program department can provide guests with pets a hiking/ snowshoeing map of pet friendly hikes on our grounds and in the surrounding areas.

Of course both locations have great people activities like mini golf , disc golf, swimming, fly fishing, rafting, horseback riding, guided hikes, arts and crafts centers, day camp programs, and family nature programs.

Very fun!  If you go let me know how your trip was and of course send photos!
