Welcome to Shrine Mountain Inn

WildflowersWhether you are drawn by the brilliant wildflowers of summer or the new powder of winter, Shrine Mountain Inn offers backcountry adventure and solitude for all. Each day holds something new for visitors. Take time to watch the sunrise from the deck, hike the ridge above Shrine Pass, mountain bike to the old mining town of Redcliff, carve some tracks into freshly fallen snow, sit back, relax, and read a good book next to a crackling fire, or bask in the evening alpenglow. The choices are endless.
