Elk Mountain Resort

97 Elk Walk
Montrose , CO , United States
(970) 252-4900

Surrounded by the 14,000-foot peaks of the San Juan Mountains and adjacent to more than 60,000 acres of national forest, Elk Mountain is like camp for grown-ups. It boasts a staggering assortment of adrenaline-pumping, glee-inducing activities: ATV riding, rock climbing on the property’s 30-foot man-made boulder, and paintballing on a 4 1/2-acre course. The resort also has a state-of-the-art shooting range and a helipad for heliskiing adventures. Luckily, no one sings “Kumbaya” here; instead, unwind in your soaking tub (big enough for two) or in your wrought-iron four-poster bed. There are also 18 secluded three-bedroom cottages, perfect for families.
