We loved cross-county skiing at Devil's Thumb. They have fantastic trails, landscaping and staff. The ski rentals were reasonably priced as well. They have warming yurts where you can stop and have a snack or warm by the furnace. We don't recommend staying at the hotel however as we incurred $250 in hidden fees, which was a major disappointment at... More

We had two days of Nordic skiing in the midst of a downhill ski trip and absolutely loved it. We rented equipment on site and our daughters (10 and 12) had their introduction to classic Nordic skiing. The trails were well groomed and there was good variety. When the snow stopped there were amazing views to motivate them up the... More

Not a far drive from Winter Park this is a beautiful quiet place to get outdoors and experience the open country. They rent skis and have miles of trails that everyone from beginner to expert can ski on. They have lessons also available. They offer sleigh rides, fat tire biking, fly fishing, horseback riding, hiking depending on the season. There's... More

Miles of well groomed cross-country ski trails, both traditional tracks and skating. Trails are very well marked with maps and signs at every intersection. Lovely views as you ski. High quality rentals and helpful staff. Trail pass = $20 and rentals = $25 for total of $45, but can save you and a partner $9/each if you buy the Groupon... More

We were first timers and wanted to expand our winter sports other than downhill skiing. We decided not to do a beginner class, rent some gear and have at it. Beautiful ranch/hotel with all the amenities from restaurants, sports shop, spa, horse stables, coffee shop and more. Nicely groomed trails with all ratings and lots of options for out and... More

We had two magical days cross country skiing at the Devils Thumb Ranch. We took our two puppies, and could not have had a better time. The landscape is breathtaking and expansive. We spent hours more than we thought we would exploring. The dogs loved it as well!

Hat's off to Larry who knows his stuff. Want to buy XC equipment? Ask for him. He's a former racer and is incredibly knowledgeable.

Jessica (our wrangler) was awesome! Very helpful, very informative, friendly! What a wonderful experience. It was just my husband and I on this tour; we would recommend their stables and hospitality to everyone. Anthony, another wrangler was also incredibly helpful. We will return for sure. Beautiful scenery, absolutely a lot of fun!!!!

We were in Winter Park for a wedding. Stayed at the Best Western (which was perfect). Visited Devil's Thumb day before wedding to check it out. Snooped around the main building/reception/restaurant. What a great place to hang out for a few days or longer! Had lunch on the patio and enjoyed some superb local bison dishes! Total quiet, fresh air... More
