Cross-Country Skiing Vacation

During the winter months, when C Lazy U transforms into a snowy sanctuary, quiet settles over the ranch you can experience a real cross-country ski vacation. Experience the majesty of these serene surroundings — its sprawling fields, snowcapped Rocky Mountain backdrop and sparkling frozen waters — by going on a cross-country ski adventure where you can explore the ranch at your own speed.

Traverse C Lazy U Ranch’s four miles of groomed cross-country ski trails, which meander through the main meadow and on the upper mesa for exceptional views of the mountain range and the ranch below.

  • Solo cross-country trips are available for adventurous guests who want to head out on the trail alone.
  • Guided tours are also available for those who want to learn more about the animals and nature around the ranch during the winter months.

While cross-country skiing, you may spot elusive red foxes, elk herds, and, if you’re lucky, a bald eagle soaring in the sky. With the slow pace of cross-country skiing, you can truly enjoy the wonderful sights that C Lazy U has to offer.

All cross-country skiing equipment is provided and coordinated through the Activity Center.

Join us for your next cross-country ski vacation at our all-inclusive winter resort!

From the Horse's Mouth

Julie's first Horsemanship Immersion clinic was excellent. The structure of the days and content of materials was on-point. For me personally, I got to work with horses I did not know and use my horsemanship skills to help the horses work through various exercises that they don't normally do. That was my goal for the clinic. The workshops were perfect topics, and the vet workshops were great information. There is so much to talk about and the team remained flexible to everyone's interest but kept on schedule. Julie's team is always able to work with everyone and help us grow our horsemanship skills with quick evaluation of our skills and encouraging reminders. That is what it is all about!
