WINTER ACTIVITIES

The Snow is Magical

Grab your gloves and scarf and head outside. A winter wonderland is calling you.

SNOWMOBILING

The White River National Forest is a winter playground for snowmobile enthusiasts. The Eagle/Thomasville Road (FS 400) heads up to Lime Park near Crooked Creek Pass, via Burnt Mountain Road, for wide-open meadow exploration. Hagerman Pass is another popular destination, recommended for experts due to avalanche danger.

SNOWSHOEING - NORDIC SKIING

Verdant hiking trails are transformed to white with the winter snow around the Diamond J Ranch. You can literally ski or snowshoe right from the property. The famous Tenth Mountain Division Hut system, with 350 miles of hut-to-hut touring, has three huts that are proximate to the Diamond J Ranch: the Betty Bear, Margy’s Hut and Harry Gates huts. Many backcountry skiing, hiking and mountain biking adventurers begin and end their trips with a night at the Diamond J Ranch.

What a great place to come back to, year after year.

HUNTING

Some of the best mule deer and elk hunting in the western United States is accessible in the Frying Pan River watershed and White River National Forest. Hunting units 47 and 444 are readily accessible from the Diamond J Ranch, and your hunting party is always welcome to a warm bed and tasty hot meal after a day in the field and the forest.
