Our winter guests need to remember that Ouray County is snow country and snowstorms may be expected at any time. Snow tires or chains may be required to travel the high country roads. The roads over the passes are kept open by the Colorado Highway Department. Sometimes the passes are closed for avalanche mitigation.


Because RMAL is a licensed tavern in the state of Colorado, any personal alcohol is not permitted at the lodge.


In the winter we do not allow children under 7 years old. Children between 7-11 with parents will need to book a private room and not left unaccompanied. We make exceptions in the off season and special circumstances. Please contact us personally regarding your request.
