Breakfast at sunrise offers exquisite mountain views.

There’s a place out west where the Colorado River runs off the Great Divide and winds its way through the mountain valleys.  It’s a land of green meadows, blue skies, and clean air.  This is ranch country – and has been for over a hundred years.

Things have evolved some since the early days, but there remains a stronghold of character and tradition that passes down from one generation to the next. 
cross country skiing at C Lazy U Ranch
C Lazy U Ranch has miles of groomed trails stretching far and wide.

A place where western charm and hospitality are exactly what you would imagine they should be, C Lazy U – more than an ordinary vacation or retreat destination. It’s a memory that will last a lifetime.  After all … it is our tradition.

A private winter wonderland, C Lazy U is famous for its winter scenery, endless activities, and unforgettable holiday events, complemented by cozy comforts and amenities.  

More than a winter guest ranch, the C Lazy U  is the perfect ski destination for cross country and downhill skiing.  

Cross-country skiing is beautiful at the ranch – where they pack and set tracks over a 15-mile trail system.  Accomplished skiers are available for both instruction and guide service. 

The Nordic Nook is completely stocked with quality equipment.  Cross-country instruction and equipment are included as part of the overall winter recreation package.

Snow cat ski tours are provided at the ranch and accommodate all skill levels with acres of private powder.  Curb-to-curb shuttle service is also available to nearby Winter Park and Sol Vista ski resorts.
