Learn More About Our Unique Priority Reservation System 

YMCA of the Rockies is a special place visited by many people across the country every year.  Many of our guests visit because of the uniqueness of our locations, to adventure with friends and family, to learn from our educational activities, and for the home-away-from-home atmosphere. YMCA of the Rockies is not your average getaway in the mountains!

Our reservation system is also one of our unique aspects and with a little preparation and knowledge of how our reservations work, your summer getaway is only a few clicks (or a quick call) away!
Read below to learn the basics of our unique reservation system and get answers to some of the frequently asked questions.

YMCA of the Rockies has a variety of unique lodging options to fit any budget! Both our Estes Park Center and Snow Mountain Ranch have private cabins and lodge rooms. Snow Mountain Ranch also has yurts and campgrounds.

Like any YMCA, we are a member-based organization. Our cabin donors and members receive first priority when making a reservation for each of the seasons before the general public.  Overall, our accommodations can be booked at any time with plenty of availability, but cabin availability during the summer (late June – early August) and holiday periods may have very limited availability by the time reservations are open to the public.
