If you can do it on snow, you can do it in Fraser. The skiing at nearby Winter Park and Ski Granby Ranch is diverse enough to please everyone from beginners to experts. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing opportunities abound in Arapaho National Forest, Snow Mountain Ranch Nordic Center and Devil's Thumb Ranch; and the lift-served Fraser Tubing Hill keeps families busy all day long. Dog-sledding and cozy sleigh rides are also popular pursuits around this mountain town.
Fraser doesn't shut down when the weather gets warm. Nearly 600 miles of hiking, biking and horseriding trails can be found in the area, and the town is only a half-hour drive from the west entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park. The national forest is a playground for campers, hunters, fishers and scenic drivers. The Fraser River and St. Louis Creek are popular with fly-fishers.
