Year-round outdoor adventures in Granby

If you’re looking at Granby vacation rentals for the winter, be sure to pack your snow gear – the town celebrates a bounty of ski slopes, from steep pine-studded runs suited to experts, to easy-going ski and snowboarding centers aimed at families. There are also a few hidden hot springs dotted around Granby, which are particularly rejuvenating during the cold winter months. In summer, hike through the wilderness of Arapahoe National Forest, or take a trip to Lake Granby – Colorado’s 3rd biggest body of water, surrounded by rocky mountains – for salmon and trout fishing.

Granby offers a slice of small-town charm

Those after a more restful Granby sporting activity can spend an afternoon at Golf Granby Ranch – open from April through October – an idyllic 18-hole mountain golf course suited to all types of golfing ability. In summer, stop by the Granby Farmers’ Market, a community street market specializing in food – from home-baked cherry pies to handpicked gourmet mushrooms – and local handicrafts. For a taste of true, old-school Americana, visit the Granby Rodeo throughout June and July, and watch real-life cowboys and cowgirls try to tame bucking broncos in the dusty Colorado sun.

Sun-kissed summers and sugar-white winters

Granby’s winter season is long and very cold, running from November through to mid-April. During these months the days are short, bright, and crisp, and there can be a reasonable amount of snowfall. As such, Granby’s winter months offer the perfect conditions for winter recreational activities. There are plenty of Granby vacation rentals in ski condos, if you plan to center your vacation around the slopes. The summer months – June through August, sometimes rolling into September – offer ideal temperatures for hiking, biking, and fishing: hot and sun-struck, but not unbearably so, and with relatively low humidity.

Lakes, valleys, and wildlife in and around Granby

Granby is located in Grand County, Colorado – a stretch of wild and mountainous forest-blanketed land – and based in the Colorado Basin – a flat pine-swathed valley, cut with gorges and canyons, on the southwestern slope of Rocky Mountain National Park. The aspen-covered park is renowned for its alpine tundra, sheer vertical peaks, and crystal-clear lakes – wildlife lovers can spot snow hares, black bears, and moose. Lake Granby, which boasts 40 miles of shore length, lies between Granby and Rocky Mountain National Park – and it’s always stocked with trout and salmon.
