YMCA of the Rockies at Snow Mountain Ranch | Summer Tubing Hill
The YMCA is already hard at work implementing the first phase of the Family Adventure Park designed by Design Concepts. Phase 1 opened July 15 and includes the SUMMER TUBING HILL!
Do you remember getting bundled up in freezing temperatures to hike up the mountain to sled or tube down? These are always great winter memories. Now you can enjoy that crazy, flying down the mountain ride with a smile plastered across your face during the summer. No bundling up required!
This one of a kind activity is the only adventure of its kind in Colorado!

Design Concepts completed a Master Plan for the Family Adventure Park at Snow Mountain Ranch, YMCA of the Rockies in Granby, Colorado. The design for the new Family Adventure Park brings active adventure and passive activities to life for all generations of the family, including a dog park.
The adventure park is nestled on a steeply sloping mountainous site amongst all of the accommodations and activities of the ranch and with views of the surrounding Rocky Mountains. The sense of discovery is part of the experience as you explore the mountain ranch character of the park. Adventure Zone pods provide areas of active play for all ages, creating opportunities for interaction and challenging one another. Accessible loop trails connect the different Adventure Zones. From adrenaline play to passive play, the Family Adventure Park has something for everyone.
From the Spruce Saddle Adventure Zone where you can zipline through the forest and a pendulum swing where two people can bounce and swing their weight to fly each other through the air, to the hayloft land slide that drops you out of the barn hayloft through a steep decline far below.
The Gallup Obstacle Course provides a challenge for all ages and the Gone Goslin Giant Swing provides an adrenalin rush as one to three people drop 50-feet as they swing through the air.
The Barnyard Boogie Adventure Zone provides more traditional nature themed play equipment for children 2-12. Kids can climb and explore barn ruins, or climb the pine cone climbing wall to slide down the pine needle slide and see who can race through the hay bale maze first.
Let your imagination and exploration skills run wild as you explore the Cowboy Corral Adventure Zone with activities for families and young children. Explore the chicken coop play house and the pine cone climber with slide, dig your way to find ranch tool remnants, and put on a performance as your friends and family watch on the stump stage.
The Natural Play Adventure Zone provides a passive experience to discover and explore the forest and riparian ecosystem through trails, swing bridges, bouncing boardwalks and niches for gathering and exploration. Della’s Homesteader’s Experience provides an opportunity to explore the ruins of a log ranch home and sit and relax by the fireplace.
