Colorado Winter Vacation Paradise
Ski & Dine at our Guest Ranch and Cross-Country Ski Resort Just North of Steamboat
When the legendary fence post burying snow of North Routt county covers the Elk River Valley in powder, our Colorado dude ranch transforms into a sparkling white wonderland and becomes one of the most beautiful cross-country ski resorts in Colorado. A Winter stay here is an all-inclusive vacation for snow lovers in a bona-fide Colorado mountain paradise, with some of the best Nordic skiing in the world at your doorstep, dreamlike accommodations, and one of the best chefs in the West preparing your every meal.
We offer you a complete smorgasbord of world-class skiing options right from your front door. In Winter, we convert our horseback riding trails into 20 miles of expertly groomed Cross-Country Skiing trails and we welcome Nordic skiers, Skate Skiers, Snowshoers, Backcountry Skiers, and Powderhounds to one of the most unique and satisfying ski vacations and trail systems in the West. Champagne powder your thing? We also provide our downhill skiing guests with private daily shuttles to the slopes at Steamboat Ski Area. We'll pack your lunch, drop you off, and pick you up when your ski day is through. Stay here and ski it all: Backcountry, Classic, Skate, Steamboat, Tele - and never get behind the wheel of a car. We've got you covered, in powder.
