Use this resource as you plan your cabin reservations using our unique reservation priority 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 experience on non-member cabin reservation opening day should go smoothly! Read below to learn the basics of our reservation system and get answers to some of the frequently asked questions so that you can successfully make your cabin reservation.

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.

Learn more about our Cabin Donor Program and YMCA of the Rockies Membership.


After our cabin donors and members have made their cabin reservations, we open our cabins to the general public:

•    Winter/Spring: Cabin Reservation Opening Day to Non-Members is the First Wednesday in October.

•    Summer/Fall: Cabin Reservation Opening Day to Non-Members is the First Wednesday in April.

Be flexible! Have alternative dates in mind if your chosen dates are not available.

If you are booking an accommodation other than a cabin you are welcome to book lodge rooms, campsites and yurts before the cabin reservation opening day.


YMCA of the Rockies lodging reservations operate on two seasons, winter/spring and summer/fall.  Cabins and lodge rooms open to non-members for reservations for each season at different times:


Lodge rooms open July 1 for reservations for December 1 through May 31. Cabins open the first Wednesday in October for non-member reservations for December 1 through May 31.


Lodge rooms at both locations, yurts (Snow Mountain Ranch only), campsites (Snow Mountain Ranch only) open January 1 for reservations for June 1 through November 30. Cabins open the first Wednesday in April for non-member reservations for June 1 through November 30.

Tip: Groups interested in booking lodge rooms or larger reunion cabins can book two years in advance through the Group Sales department by calling 800-777-9622.
