Smoke may be visible across the county from the Williams Fork (Grand County), Pine Gulch (Grand Junction), and Grizzly Creek (Glenwood Springs) wildfires.
The Williams Fork Fire was reported around noon on August 14 in the Arapaho National Forest in Grand County. At this time, there is no threat to Snow Mountain Ranch property. We are in close contact with officials should this change at any point. We are pleased to partner with our local agencies to host the U.S. Forest Service’s Incident Command team at Snow Mountain Ranch.

Due to current wildfire danger, Grand County is entering a Stage 2 Fire Ban starting August 13, 2020. This could affect your stay with us at Snow Mountain Ranch, and we want to make sure you are informed about any changes to your trip. Under Stage 2 Fire Restrictions, the following are NOT allowed:
- No open flames of any kind (including campfires in an established fire ring), indoor wood-burning fireplaces, and charcoal grills
- Fireworks are prohibited anywhere on property
- No smoking anywhere on property except within an enclosed personal vehicle
- No operation of any internal or external combustion engine without a properly installed spark arresting device
- Gas-fueled appliances such as stoves, gas grills, gas lanterns, gas-fueled fireplaces, and heating devices that can be shut off are permitted.
These restrictions are consistent with those put in place by Grand County to reduce the risk of human-caused wildfires. Improperly doused or misplaced fires are the leading cause of wildfires. Thank you for your cooperation in our efforts to keep Snow Mountain Ranch and Grand County a safe place for our guests and staff.
