Gorrono Ranch is truly a gem of the San Juan’s. Named after the family that built the ranch, Gorrono was once a Basque sheep herder’s farm in the 1800’s. Recently renovated, Gorrono has served as our mid-mountain ski lodge. During the winter months the ranch is open to the public daily, but in the evenings it becomes a private mountain lodge that exudes rustic elegance. Guests are whisked up the mountain in a snow cat drawn sleigh with the towering San Juan Mountains illuminated by a star filled sky.
During the summer months Gorrono is accessed by van and is a popular pick for destination weddings. Gorrono has multiple decks -one that is typically used as the ceremony site, which boasts the picturesque Wilson Mountain Range as its backdrop.
