Originally built in 1872, The Old Corral Hotel &
Steak House is a legendary piece of Wyoming's
storied Wild West history!
Built as a corral and barn to hold horses and cattle during the cattle drives of the late 1800's, many a stage coach and wagon would stop here during the great Western migration to rest and restock.
Then, in 1875, a group of hunters came across pure gold outcroppings sticking right up out of the ground in the Snowy Range Mountains just a few hundred yards to our west. Within months, the population of this tiny spot on the trail swelled to over 5,000 people and the town of Centennial was born.
For those seeking adventure, your just minutes away from the time of your life! Downhill and cross country skiing along with snowboarding is available at the Snowy Range Ski Area. Featuring a great mixture of green, blue and black slopes, skiers will revel in the challenging slopes and abundant snow at this great family ski resort. No long lines, great equipment, qualified instructors and a wonderful staff await you!
For the snowmobile enthusiast, we've got just what you are looking for! Ride up to nearly 12,000' elevation in the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest and enjoy the spectacular scenery. You will thrill as your sled races along the groomed trails or for added adventure create your own trail in the traditionally heavy snow. In the summer, enjoy fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, backpacking, nature tours, ATV riding, canoeing, horseback riding, shopping for antiques, bird watching or any of dozens of other activities!!
SNOWY RANGE SNOW REPORT
Last updated: 1/17/2015
Lots of snow for this time of year is on the mountain, but fresh deep powder is currently what is lacking. Riders this weekend reported finding snow about 6-8 inches in depth in the Northern/Tree'd areas to still play with...but it currently is taking some searching to find it. We did receive a couple inches of fresh snow overnight last night, but haven't heard if it amounted to much up top yet. The plus side to the conditions is still the ability to see new areas where you've never been and find a few sweet spots for the next time we get a good storm! Always better than being at the office right?! Another chance of snow over the next few days will hopefully freshen some things up...we'll keep you posted as we hear more!
Nowadays, travelers can enjoy the welcome respite the Old Corral has to offer much like travelers over 130 years ago did. We invite you to enjoy our Old Corral Prospector Steak House offering up good ol' Western beef with all the trimmings for those tired of all the fast food stops on their journey.
Guests also have full use of our game room featuring billiards and darts or our Theatre Room with over 300 family friendly titles or bring your own DVD/VHS.
Shopping has been elevated to new heights at the Old Corral and not just because we are located at over 8,000' elevation! Hundreds of unique Western gifts are available for you to browse and purchase in the Snowy Range Emporium. You'll find most anything you need to brighten someone's day in our two-level shop!
