Zephyr Lodge Condo -- Area Information


 

Rocky Mountain National Park in the Winter

 This information is compiled to assist guests who rent our Condo at the Zephyr Mountain Lodge.  If you've arrived at this page as a result of a web search on Rocky Mountain Park, we hope you benefit from the information.  And if you need lodging, thank you for considering us.

Rocky Mountain National Park is quietly beautiful in the Winter months.  Gone are the millions of visitors motoring over Trail Ridge Road snapping pictures at every turn.  Indeed, Trail Ridge Road is closed for most of its length -- not to re-open until Memorial Day.  Most of the hiking, camping, nature viewing, and other activities are on hold till the snow melts and the weather warms.  Nevertheless the mountains are beautiful -- while virtually inaccessible.  

Snowmobiles are banned from Rocky Mountain National Park except for a small 2 mile slice in the southwest corner [by Grand Lake] in order to provide access to a National Forest trail system.    As a consequence, the National Park lies quietly under multiple feet of snow.

Experienced cross country skiers and snowshoe-ers are welcome inside the park.  Locals from Grand Lake, Granby, Fraser, and Winter Park frequent the trails.   Rugged conditions and long distances from any assistance cause us to suggest to our web visitors to eliminate save Rocky Mountain National Park for a summertime visit.
