Spiritual and Faith-Based Programing

The YMCA of the Rockies Chapel Ministry seeks to honor God and embody the teachings of Jesus Christ through the fostering of relationships, stewardship of the natural environment, and creating faith-based programs that are spiritually engaging and respectful of all.

Worship at Snow Mountain Ranch

Weekend Worship—On Sunday mornings Snow Mountain Chaplain’s Department will host a public worship service at the Zachman Family Fire Ring. The service will begin at 8:30 am. In the event of inclement weather the service will be cancelled as we cannot yet host indoor services. Safe social distancing will be practiced.

Dogsledding and Adventure Ministry Programming

Dogsledding Rides—Do you dream of yelling “Mush!” to your team of huskies in the blinding snow while on the trail of the Iditarod? Live out a (scaled-down) version of your dream by dog sledding at Snow Mountain Ranch this winter! Please note that we have limited availability for this activity and advance reservations are required. We recommend calling to book your ride as soon as possible.

Dogsledding Presentation—Along with Dogsled rides, Snow Mountain Ranch provides weekly opportunities to learn about the sport of Dog Mushing. Every Saturday and Monday at 10:00am Snow Mountain Ranch Chaplain and Head Musher, Steve Peterson, will provide an introduction to Dogsledding; he will talk about the equipment, the breed of the dogs, types of races, as well as lessons in faith and leadership that he has learned in his 20 years of Dug Mushing.
