sipapu ski & summer resort


Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort offers the perfect blend of quiet, laid-back style and ongoing, family-friendly events. So, whether you’re looking to curl up by the fire for an afternoon of reading, or hoping to score a prize in one of our many competitions, Sipapu is the place to be all year long.

Sipapu’s philosophy is to be the most family-friendly resort in the Rockies, and guests have been bringing their children and grandchildren to our mountain since 1952. Our resort is small enough so that kids won’t get lost, and our laid-back style is perfect for families looking to simply enjoy a family vacation they can afford.
