Don't Let This Winter Go to the Dogs, Unless They Have Sleds

Just 80 miles outside of Denver, YMCA of the Rockies - Snow Mountain Ranch (SMR) offers a fun wintertime escape for the whole family. Colorado Parent recently let readers know about dog sledding adventures at the ranch. Guests can meet the four-legged sled pullers for free. A standard two mile ride is offered twice weekly for ages 6 and up. Free crafts and hot cocoa are provided as well. You must make a reservation, so plan ahead and enjoy the "call of the wild."

Traveling Mom calls SMR "a Rocky Mountain adventure at a rock bottom price." They are fans of SMR's Nordic Center, which offers tons of snow-filled adventures including skiing, tubing, ice skating and snowshoeing. SMR has 75 miles of groomed trails to frolic on. The Nordic Center offers lessons and equipment rentals. Plus, if you forgot your hat or gloves at home, you can purchase the latest and greatest gear on site.

Macaroni Kid Evergreen booked a weekend excursion to SMR and were delighted with everything from their "cozy cabin" to the all-you-can-eat buffet to the variety of indoor activities at the Kiva Activity Center including roller skating! 

You can read another review of a SMR getaway on Heiditown. And, KDVR did a segment on planning a family reunion at SMR - a one stop shop with accommodations, food and entertainment taken care of for you and your family members. 

When you get up to SMR, be sure to tell them that Feed Media sent you!
