A Closer Look At A Day on Green Mountain
October 2019 | Brush Creek Ranch
Unveiling the newest addition to the Brush Creek Luxury Ranch Collection, Green Mountain will offer a new alpine experience for guests. Completely surrounded by Medicine Bow National Forest, the mountain provides opportunity for the ultimate, secluded winter adventure.
After a scenic 25 minute journey from the ranch, climb aboard a snowcat for the final approach to Green Mountain. Located at the base of Green Mountain, the Basecamp Yurt provides a meeting place for guests to gather before tackling 1,100 vertical feet of downhill sporting paradise and miles of snow-covered trails.
Powder Hounds will be excited for the opportunity to tackle up to 1.2-mile runs, ranging from gentle beginner slopes to aggressive double diamonds, tree skiing and powder chutes that would give a rush to even the most seasoned adrenaline junkie. With acres of varied and unmatched terrain throughout the massive property, there are opportunities for any skill level to tackle the slopes of Green Mountain.
During your day, ski by either Basecamp Yurt--located at the bottom, or Lookout Yurt -- at the top of Green Mountain and cozy up by the warm stove or sit outside on the wraparound deck with your friends. To fuel up for adventures a hearty lunch and post-skiing après provides the perfect time to gather with friends and share stories of your day at Green Mountain.
Perfect for hikers and die-hard traditionalists, wilderness snowshoeing adventures allow guests to take a peaceful trek around the 600-acre winter wonderland.
The Nordic Yurt is the starting point for all of the cross-country skiing trails and setting up equipment. Explore gentle trails that wend through the forest or for experienced skiers, try the rolling trails that lap around Green Mountain that can be connected for a longer workout.
Grab the kids and a tube! Barrel down a separate sledding hill and experience classic winter fun the whole family can enjoy while making priceless memories together.
