Granby Ranch has announced a postponement of their opening day of ski operations for the 2023-2024 winter season.

In a news release, the resort stated that the postponement is due to “unusually warm weather” conditions. The original opening date had been set for Friday, Dec. 8.

“Our dedicated team is diligently engaged in snow production, striving to expedite the opening of lifts and skiable terrain as soon as possible. The delay is expected to be brief, and we’ll be sure to notify our guests and the community as soon as we have more information,” the resort stated in the release.

While Granby Ranch’s prepares for the opening of ski operations, their retail shop (11 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and Bluebird Bistro (11 a.m. to 8 p.m.) are open daily for the season, located in the base lodge. The First Chair Café will also open on Dec. 8, to serve coffee and breakfast items.

“The team is working hard to maximize snow production to provide the safe and enjoyable ski and ride experience our guests have come to expect. We do not anticipate an extended delay and we look forward to seeing you soon,” stated Roxanne Hoover, Granby Ranch general manager.
