Christmas and New Year’s in the winter wonderland of the Elk River Valley is a truly special time when many extended families, couples and groups return to celebrate the spirit of this holiday season in a picture perfect holiday setting. 

The staff at the Home Ranch create an atmosphere of homecoming and celebration so you can just relax and spend time with your friends and family without having to coordinate meals and activities. 

In addition to all of our daily winter activities like cross country skiing, sleigh rides, sledding, and downhill skiing, Chef Nelson prepares gourmet holiday dinners and we'll plan festive entertainment to fit the season.

A Typical Day During Your Winter Stay

Each day our ski guides will visit with you to help plan your day. Your day could include helping feed our herd of over 100 horses with the sleigh, a snowshoe up Home Mountain for an awe inspiring view of the Elk River valley, a cross-country ski over to Llamasary, a Backcountry excursion up to Hahn's Peak, a quick skate ski around Aspen Arches, a hair raising trip down the tubing hill or reading a book by the fire. Most guests find themselves going out for another ski to make room for the next meal that Chef Clyde Nelson and his staff are preparing.
 
For those of you who would prefer downhill skiing at the nearby Steamboat Ski Resort, we offer a complimentary shuttle to and from the base each day. We will even pack you a lunch before you head out.
 
We can also arrange a half day tour with local outfitters for fly fishing on the Yampa River, driving your own team of dogs, or speeding across an open meadow on a snowmobile. All of these are very popular and fill up quickly.
