        Snow Mountain Ranch FAQs

        • Lodge rooms and cabins include bed linens, towels, and free Wi-Fi. Cabins also include kitchen utensils, dishes, pots and pans, and a coffee maker. We do not have air conditioning in any of our lodging, but cool mountain air makes up for it! Our lodge rooms and most cabin types do not include televisions — but you can borrow games and puzzles from our libraries and programs departments! Wi-Fi is free, with no password, but it’s not a secure network.

          We offer a linen exchange, where you can bring your used towels and linens and exchange them for clean ones, but we do not provide housekeeping turn-overs during stays.

        • Pets are allowed only in pet-friendly accommodations for $25/day (up to 2 pets are permitted). Most lodging types offer pet-free options for those with allergies. There is no pet fee for guests staying at the Snow Mountain Ranch Campground. Pets are not permitted in public buildings at the Y or on trails in Rocky Mountain National Park. Read our full Pet Policy here.

        • Reservation deposits are fully refundable up until the time periods outlined below.

          • Lodge Rooms, Campsites and Yurts: No refund 48 hours prior to arrival
          • Cabins: 75% refund 2 weeks prior to arrival. No refund 1 week prior to arrival
        • We carefully consider all special lodging requests, but we are unable to guarantee specific cabins or lodge rooms, the exact location of your accommodations, or fireplace type (wood vs. gas).
