We will take you to their headquarters which is about an hour from the ranch. The cost is $160 per person or $110 per child under 80 pounds for the adventure. On King!
SNOWMOBILING: Leave the ski trails behind on a high-performance snowmobile. New this year, we are offering the snowmobile trip right from the ranch, so no need to drive off-ranch for this thrilling adventure. A two-hour excursion is $115 for adults, $60 for a passenger and children under 10 are $15. A passenger riding with a guide is $100.
CAT SKIING: Experience floating turns through virgin powder accessed by Snow cats. Guides and meals are provided, however guests need to have their own ski or snowboard gear. The charge for this incredible all day trip is around $600 per person or $1,000 for a couple.
MASSAGE: Soothe your sore muscles and free up your stress related tension with a mixture of deep tissue massage, pressure points, and stretching. Massages are available to be scheduled on Tuesdays, Fridays, and some Thursdays at 3:00 and 4:15. The fee is $130/hour and Trish will meet you for your appointment in the massage room. See our spa menu for more details.
Guests visiting during the Christmas and New Year’s weeks should call ahead to book any of these activities as they book up faster during the holiday season.
