A saloon set up for Croatian miners drawn to Colorado, Scarp Ridge Lodge still has its Wild West looks on the outside but inside is a different story. Transformed with reclaimed iron from the old town’s mills and roaring fires, Scarp Ridge Lodge’s interiors are generous, warm and cosy. The Lodge’s main appeal, however, is its unrivalled position high in an authentic and historic mountain town with access to some of the world’s most exclusive skiing.
There is no better way to experience this extraordinary ski terrain than in a custom-designed snowcat that arrives every morning to transport guests to the farthest edges of the 1,000 plus acres of snow-laden territory. The area receives an average of 450 inches of snow per year and the cold-smoke powder is the stuff of legend. Accompanied by the Lodge’s guides that know every inch of the area and can show you the deepest powder runs for miles around, explore this skiing wonderland.
Recharge during the day in one of the two on-mountain cabins and warm up with some delicious food in front of the fire. After a day of cutting through the Colorado powder, return to the Lodge and ease your aching muscles in the rooftop hot tub or indulge in a Swedish or deep tissue massage followed by relaxation in the steam room to truly release all of your tension. Head to the bar and enjoy après in your own home-away-from-home as the bartender makes any drink you desire. Let the chef prepare a delicious and warming supper and if you get hungry later, pop into the open kitchen and grab a snack from the fully stocked fridge.
At Scarp Ridge Lodge, the emphasis is on making you feel as though you are simply at home, with plenty of space to relax, including a media room and storytelling room. Whether you visit in winter to ski fresh powder, or to hike the dramatic Rocky Mountains in summer, you are sure to feel completely at ease in Scarp Ridge Lodge.
