Some Tips on Granby Ranch Ski Rentals
Granby Ranch is known as a family place and more of a beginner’s hill, so most of the people skiing here are families with kids who are younger than teenagers. So much of this advice is for the youngins.
Buy everyone a helmet. I have said this a lot in my time, but renting a helmet is pretty nasty. Putting your head where someone else’s sweaty head and hair have been just ain’t my thing. And I’m not a germophobe. You can get decent helmets for adults starting at $60. Kids’ helmets are even cheaper. Plus, they can work for biking or skateboarding or anything else.
At Granby, don’t be afraid to get faster skis. Granby is a small hill that is not very steep at even its steepest points. This is a good spot to let them get better on more advanced gear without worry of them speeding off of a cliff. The boots will fit better with the premium gear, and so your kids will not wear out as fast and won’t get as cranky.
Granby Ranch Ski Rental Equipment Insurance. I think there is an unlikely chance that anything would happen to equipment at Granby over all other places. There are not many rocks, no cliffs, low crowds, and low overall speed. At other resorts, I usually lay out the pros/cons of this fee–which is usually $3/person/day–but here I think you don’t want to mess with it.
For the parents, always get the high end boots. The boots are key. The key to comfort and the key to control. If you’ve skied before, you have had some uncomfortable boots. It wasn’t fun. Granby Ranch is one of the cheapest places to ski in this entire great state. You are already saving money–especially if you are using our lift ticket discounts–so spring for the boots. You won’t be sorry.
