Letter: Snow Mountain Ranch, Granby Ranch made newcomers’ day


As a part-time resident in Grand County, I want to thank the good people at Snow Mountain Ranch and Granby Ranch for their generosity. In recent weeks, we have befriended a young Afghani couple new to our state through a Denver based nonprofit. On the weekend of March 19, both ski areas treated this couple, who were recently evacuated from Afghanistan, to ski passes, equipment and lessons. As they begin their lives anew in our state, a break from looking for work, mastering the English language, and figuring out their new lives in a new country was greatly appreciated. There were many smiles, laughs and a few tumbles shared. We are all grateful.

Justin Levy, Granby
