It’s hard to believe that our winter dude ranch season will be coming to an end in less than a week. In the coming week we will have the last of our regular dude ranch season guests check out on Sunday, host a big event that day, and then have our Horsemanship Retreat guests check in to the ranch. All of our regular programs will close down at that time and those folks will be here riding, riding, riding, until Thursday. Come next Thursday, the “Closed for the season” sign will go up on the entry gate, and we’ll start preparing the ranch for spring and summer. Wow, time does fly. It seems like just last week that we were preparing for our Christmas guests to arrive!
This winter has been a great one. So many wonderful guests have come through our doors. Honeymooners, families with kids new to snow and friends who have been coming here for years. We have also been so lucky to have great snow this year. That hasn’t been the case across all of the West, so we feel pretty lucky. The skiing has been great, and the views pristine.
As we make our way towards the end of the season, we’ll be sad to see some of our great staff move on to bigger and better things. But, we’ll look forward to having more time with those who are returning for the summer as well as the new ones who Ben and Alaya are working on getting hired right now!
