You may remember when REI did something different on Black Friday last year—they closed the co-op’s doors and invited the nation to opt outside with them. And, more than a million people did just that. It really caught the attention of our community. This year on Black Friday, YMCA of the Rockies is joining REI outside, and we’d like you to opt outside with us. Let’s skip the malls and celebrate life outdoors!
Here are a ways you can #OptOutside on Black Friday at Snow Mountain Ranch:
This Thanksgiving, we have plenty of special programming to keep you and your family busy. Join us for campfires and s’mores, turkey calling competitions, pin the tail on the turkey, nature art and our annual family-friendly Turkey Trot!
Join us for Moose on the Loose! Meet at the Nordic Center for a snowshoe tour or a hike, depending on the weather, and learn about the local moose. If we’re lucky we’ll spot some!
Depending on the weather, join us for a hike or snowshoe tour of Nine Mile Mountain! This family-friendly hike is worth the panoramic views of Snow Mountain Ranch at the top.
Don’t forget, our cabins at YMCA of the Rockies are pet friendly! Feel free to being your leashed four legged friend on our dog-friendly trails.
We’re doing our snow dances now! Stop by our Nordic Center for fat bike, snowshoe and Nordic ski rentals, lessons and more. Even if there isn’t enough snow on the ground to ski, you can take a fat bike for a spin on our fat bike trails!
