With the Colorado State Forest Service, the U.S. Forest Service and Great Outdoors Colorado, we placed a conservation easement on 2,800 acres at the ranch.

Preserving this land allows Snow Mountain Ranch to continue its long-standing tradition of providing year-round access to more than 50 miles of world-class hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, horseback riding and biking trails. It also safeguards habitat for a variety of wildlife species, including the federally threatened and state-endangered Canada lynx and the state-sensitive Northern goshawk. In addition, it establishes the foundation for the next generation of healthy forests in an area devastated by beetle damage, while maintaining the water quality of Pole Creek, a source of water for Snow Mountain Ranch and the town of Granby.
