During the winter, the lodge is a popular destination for the snow-driven enthusiasts for snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and back country skiers. In a prime location, you can be riding open meadows or technical terrain directly from the lodge. Truly one of the best snowmobile lodges in the Western United States for the varied terrain you can access.

Recently Remodeled Buildings & Upgrades

The main lodge building and three large cabins were originally built in 2006-2007, with the event building, shop, and other quad plex added in 2012-2013. At the time of the current owner's purchase, the improvements needed some love. After the current owner's purchase in 2022, the new owner made significant capital improvements to the property. They shut the doors on the property and proceeded to remodel the main lodge, the event center/bunk house, the three large cabins, and the quad plex over the course of the fall of 2022 and early 2023. Now, you can see in the photos the quality of work that has been completed. The lodge has been transformed into a stunning mountain getaway with high-end finishes.

Improved Business, Strategic Partnerships, Outfitting Permit

With the remodel complete, Electric Mountain Lodge has set its sights on assembling assets to bring tremendous value to the operation as a rental and lodging business. First, the lodge partnered with Brp, a prominent powersport vehicle company renowned for its off-road vehicles. The lodge secured it's agreement to obtain side x side UTVs and snowmobiles for the rental business to be run from the lodge. In addition to this, Electric Mountain Lodge acquired a Forest Service special use permit for outfitting and guiding the public lands surrounding the business. The permit entails 300 service days for Atv/Utv guiding, 300 service days for snowmobile guiding, 300 days for commercial transportation services, and the authorization to groom the existing snowmobile trails and tracks for snowmobiling and skiing. Now the lodge is capable of providing tours and rentals for the summer months on hundreds of miles of established roads and trails, as well as snowmobiling rentals and tours for the expansive network of trails that circumvent the Grand Mesa during the winter months. Business has been steadily improving, bringin in clientele from the Aspen, Crested Butte, and Telluride markets, as well as guests from all over the country looking for a Colorado mountain resort for motorsports recreation.

Hunting, Fishing, & Camping Surrounding GMU 521

The recreational assets surrounding the lodge are noteworthy. GMU 521 is a over unit for big game elk hunting during rifle seasons, drawing hunters from all across the country seeking to hunt the Grand Mesa for Elk. Mule deer tags are issued on a draw basis, and hunters with sought-after archery mule deer tags want to be positioned to hunt the forests of the Grand Mesa during the archery seasons.

Overland reservoir is a quick trip from the lodge to the Northwest, and has great fishing during the summer months, and provides beautiful camp sites.

Location & Accessibility

Just north of Paonia, Colorado, the access to the lodge during the summer months is by traveling up Stevens Gulch Road, an easy 19 miles north of Paonia. The road is county maintained, and can easily drive small cars and awd vehicles up the maintained gravel road. There is also an access that comes from McClure pass, from the Muddy Creek area along CR 265. Both roads have parking lots during the winter months, with Stevens Gulch parking lot being approximately 8 miles from the lodge to the South, and the Muddy Creek access point approximately 12.5 miles to the East. The lodge offers pickup and drop off to clientele via tracked UTV as well as a new Mercedes Sprinter van outfitted with tracks.
