Pets are allowed in the 2-5 bedroom cabins, but are not allowed in the lodge rooms or the large retreat/reunion cabins that have 6-16 bedrooms. 2 pet maximum. There is a $10/pet/night fee. We have many trails on our grounds that are dog- friendly for dogs on leashes.
We know you don't mean to leave your items behind, but if you do, please contact:
Items are held for 14 days and then donated to an appropriate charity.

Cabins have gas or electric heat, fully-equipped kitchens with refrigerator and stoves with ovens, microwaves are in all cabins (except 2 bedroom basic cabins at Estes Park Center), telephones and one or more bathrooms. Linens, bath and dish towels, dishes and cooking utensils are provided. Cabins do not have TVs; TVs are only available in our vacation homes, which also come with a microwave and dishwasher.

Yes, we have accessible cabins, lodge rooms and retreat cabins. Unfortunately, it is not possible to reserve these accommodations online. Please call our reservation staff at 1-800-777-9622 and we will be happy to help.
A membership is NOT required to make reservations. Members of YMCA of the Rockies receive advanced reservation priority for one cabin per stay, plus a $15 per night discount. Any YMCA member receives a $15 per night discount through the YMCA Away program. You must provide proof of membership upon check-in. Learn more about Membership here.
Both Estes Park Center and Snow Mountain Ranch have free wireless internet access in the central areas of the property. The signal is strongest in the Administration Building and lodges. Cell phone reception is dependent on the type of phone and service provider, but signals tend to be somewhat weak. There are public phones available for guest use.
Group reservations (for 15 or more) can be made up to two years in advance. Advance Reservation Requests are accepted for dates that are more than two years away. If you have questions, we are more than happy to help: 800-777-9622 or email@example.com.
The Program Bulletin is published every week to make it easy for you to schedule your fun activities. From A to Z (archery to zipline) we'll keep you busy. The Program Bulletin also contains information regarding special guest speakers, concerts, horseback riding, swimming pool, craft center schedules and more.

We are proud to provide a clean-air environment. Please respect our non-smoking policy in all facilities. We provide special fire-safe ashtrays in several outdoor areas designated for smoking.
Alcoholic beverages are not sold on-grounds and may be consumed only in the privacy of your room, cabin or group meeting space.
YMCA of the Rockies has a strict no marijuana policy. We are a mission-based organization where we build healthy spirit, mind and body - therefore we do not allow marijuana at Estes Park Center or Snow Mountain ranch.
Above 8,000 feet, oxygen is approximately 45% less dense and there is 50% to 80% less humidity than sea level. Altitude sickness can affect anyone, regardless of age or fitness level. Visitors from lower elevations may notice shortness of breath, fatigue, dizziness, headaches and/or nausea.
To alleviate these symptoms, we recommend drinking plenty of water (64 ounces daily), get lots of rest, eat lightly and avoid caffeine and alcohol. Ibuprofen and altitude sickness medication is available for purchase in our General Stores.
Call or email please! We want to help, so please give us the opportunity to serve our Mission: 800-777-9622 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
