The essential guide to dude, guest, and working cattle ranches worldwide.
Steamboat Springs, CO USA
Tucked away up the Elk River Valley, just north of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Vista Verde offers a diverse selection of activities making it more than just a riding ranch. In the summer hiking, rock climbing, mountain biking, fly-fishing, and paddle boarding accompany trail riding and helpful clinics. In the winter skiing, snowshoeing and sleigh rides complement snowy horseback rides. In both seasons, secluded AAA Four Diamond accommodations feature private hot tubs, wood stoves and fabulous views, with gourmet dining, wine tasting and cooking classes adding to the experience. Creative children’s, tween's and teen’s programs make it enjoyable for the whole family, with special times set aside for adult only escapes.
