Nearing the finish line

By Steph

The winter season is coming to an end, and just in time as the snow is rapidly melting away.  Tomorrow we officially close the winter resort season, but then Sunday the guests for our Horsemanship Retreat check-in.  We’ll have a group of about 10 ladies here riding with Jason Patrick until Thursday, and then we shut the doors until summertime.  There is a mix of excitement, sadness, anticipation, and celebration going on for many of us right now.  Excitement as it’s always fun to have a change of pace, and many staff are heading off on amazing off-season adventures.  Sadness as some of our great people are moving on to their next venture in life and we’re sad to see them go.  Anticipation as those who are leaving wonder where their next move will take them, and will they miss the ranch or not?  Celebration as we have worked our tails off since December serving others, and now it’s time to take a deep breath and enjoy the quiet of the off-season.

Although there are many staff moving on to new and different adventures in life, I need to recognize one in particular today.  Malori has led the office team this past year and has been the main voice of Vista Verde.  She’s handled the bulk of the reservations and been the point person for all our guests prior to their stay at the ranch.  It’s been such a pleasure having her in the office and watching her grow over the past couple years.  We will miss her tremendously, but are excited for her to go find her “thing” out there in the big world.  I know she’ll do wonderful things and contribute in great ways.  At the same time, Malori’s partner in crime and roommate Kerri will be heading out too.  She’s the other voice of VVR who steps in on Malori’s days off to cover the reservations.  The amazing person has proven that farm girls can be smart and beautiful, and we’ve loved having her as part of our team. With every sad good bye there is always also a warm welcome.

With Malori stepping out, Meagan will be stepping into her role.  Many of you who have been here know Meagan as the lively server or the bubbly kid wrangler.  Now she is stepping inside the office and will be taking over the phones, emails, and all that goes on in the front office.  So, expect to hear a new voice when you call in to book your reservation (have you booked for the summer yet?  If not, get on it so Meagan can get to work!).  We’re all looking forward to having her join the fun in the office.

There are many more to say goodbye to, and many more to welcome come summer, but that will be another blog.  I’m hoping that sometime in the coming month I’ll have the new website launched, and then we’ll start updating the staff bios so you can check out who will be working here this summer. Lots to do with the closing of the season, and lots of great news to share in the coming weeks.  Stay tuned!

Cowboys & Indians Magazine – January 2015

By Ramona Flume

Vista Verde Ranch, an all-inclusive dude ranch 45 minutes north of Steamboat Springs, boasts privileged access into Routt National Forest, a virtually uninhabited slice of northwest Colorado wilderness connected to the Medicine Bow National Forest, which extends hundreds of miles into central Wyoming. The ranch itself covers 580 acres, with 10 log cabins and various barns and riding complexes set amid a snow-kissed valley dotted with herds of horses, which roam the aspen-lined edges of the national forest.  Read more…..

A day of skiing at the Steamboat Ski Resort

By Steph

dusk_ski-area-cows04With only 22 days until the Steamboat Ski Resort opens for the 2014-15 season, and a fresh dusting of snow sitting on the mountains right now, it’s hard not to to finally get excited about winter.  Usually a rough transition for me, to move from the pleasant days of being outside soaking up the sun, the fresh air, and the amazing views to bundling up to go outside to soak up the sun, the fresh air, and the amazing views.  Hmmmm….that didn’t come out right.  Point being that although the winter experience is an amazing one that I think everyone should come try out, living in it for 6 months can make for a little kicking and screaming as the weather gets cooler and the clouds roll into town.

This year is a bit different.  With such a mild fall, we’ve had tons of time to enjoy the trails, watch the aspens change, fit in our last trail rides, bike rides, hikes, etc…and now it is finally feeling to me like it’s time for snow.  While getting out in downtown Steamboat today, I looked up at the ski mountain and had a moment.  The sun was shining brightly on the fresh white snow sitting up on the mountain.  It hit me.  I’m ready to ski.  Now, don’t get me wrong.  I could write an entire blog post on how much I love skate skiing, back country skiing, snowshoeing, horse back riding in the snow, going on a sleigh ride, you name it.  I love all the outdoor pursuits that we share with guests when they are playing at Vista Verde on their winter vacation.  But, I do save a special spot in my heart for downhill skiing.  That’s where my roots lie, and, like many, that’s what brought me here to Colorado in the first place.

So, if you have been thinking about planning a winter ski vacation, do it!  Come to Steamboat and enjoy the fresh powder we get so often, the tree skiing or the meandering groomed trails.  In fact, imagine this day…..

You wake up to the sound of horses neighing at each other as the sun peeks over Wapiti mountain.  Peering out of your cabin window, you see that the snow has stopped and the sunrise is turning the sky shades of orange, pink, and yellow.  After a quick soak in the hot tub on the deck, where you finish watching the sunrise, you bundle up in your ski duds and head down to the lodge for a hearty breakfast…..including that amazing bacon that has ruined your bacon experience anywhere else in the world.  As you finish up your last bites, Bubba hands you a lunch to go and Ryan comes in to tell you he’s ready with the Suburban by the front door.  You and your ski buddies hop in the vehicle and head down the road.  After a scenic drive down the Elk River Valley, Ryan drops you off right at the base of the Gondola.  You swing by Christy Sports to pick up your rental gear (of course you stopped on your way in from the airport with Brandon and got fitted so it was ready to go this morning, as well as your lift tickets) and then hop of the Gondola for your first run.

steamboat-ski-resortYour legs are burning, but the skiing has been so good that you only stopped for a 15 minute lunch break.  By mid-afternoon, all you can think about is that bubbling hot tub and the delightful dinner that Chefs Cholly and JT have prepared for you back at the ranch.  Ryan is waiting for you as you slowly walk from dropping off your ski gear at Christy Sports and lay yourself into the Suburban.  On the ride home, you enjoy watching the sun set over the valley floor, the cows munching on their hay, and a herd of elk sauntering across the meadow.  Once firmly planted in said hot tub, you see the stars…..more stars than you could ever imagine seeing!  It’s all you can do to get jeans and a sweater on to head down to the Lodge for dinner.  The amazing meal is only topped by the delicious wine and the great conversation, as everyone recounts their adventures from the day.  As you stroll back to your cabin following dinner, you are surprised by the fact that there are now even more stars in the sky than earlier.  Fantasies of sitting in your hot tub again are quickly washed away by the comfortable bed, the low lights, and that pillow…..as you curl up and fall asleep earlier than you’ve been to bed in ages, your legs twitch a bit as your muscle memory revisits some of the amazing turns you made today.  A winter day well played.

Ready to ski Steamboat?  I am!

Spotlight On – Cori Webb

By Steph

Even the horses love Cori's infectious giggles.

Even the horses love Cori’s infectious giggles.

If you’ve been following the ranch on our various social media outlets, you’ve already met Cori Webb via her photography.  I figured it was time to officially introduce her so people could know the person behind the lens.

Cori is originally from Indiana, and attended Indiana University to study elementary education before making Vista Verde her home.  She is in her 5th season working at the ranch and has a wide variety of experience from working as a kid supervisor, housekeeper, teen wrangler, and my favorite spot for her in the front office (Cori would disagree as she prefers to be outside, but we’d have her back any day!).

photo 3So, how does Cori end up with all these phenomenal photos?  She isn’t a trained photographer, but has always been drawn to the camera and capturing moments around her.  Cori’s interest was piqued after a photography class in high school, and she has been shooting ever since.  Being at the ranch, she mostly takes photos of the natural world, but she would really like to spend some more time taking photos of people going forward.  She loves children, so maybe there’s a future in family photo shoots?  Possibly as a side gig as her main focus is elementary education.

As with any great VVR staff who settles at the ranch for a while, and much to our chagrin, Cori’s time is coming to move on in life.  After this summer she will be heading down the mountain and giving city life a try in Denver.  She’s hoping to find a teaching job there so she can start applying her talents with children in the classroom.

When asked what she would miss most about the ranch, Cori answers, “”There are so many incredible aspects to the ranch, but the community is definitely what I’m going to miss the most. This place has become home over the last few years.

horse in sun cori webbIt’s been a gift for us to have Cori as part of the family all these years.  On top of her great contributions to the guest experience, and our staff community, we’ve been able to share the beauty of the ranch with so many people through her photos.  We hope you enjoy her photos throughout this summer!

Spring break adventures

By Steph

Good luck closing that gate right now!

Good luck closing that gate right now!

Typically when we close down for the spring break at Vista Verde, it’s because all that amazing snow that Colorado is known for needs to melt away, which leads to a lot of mud.  This year, the memo seems to have missed the mountains, as we’ve been getting more days of snow than sun in April.  We could have stayed open another month, and still be hosting families coming for spring break vacations!  But, hindsight is 20-20, of course.  So, we’re making the best of it and trying to enjoy these fun spring conditions while the ranch is closed down.

There are several special times that happen throughout the spring in the mountains of Colorado.  One of them is a small window of time when fly fishing the rivers is prime.  It comes right in between the end of winter and spring.  Brandon will be writing about that in an upcoming installment of The Fly.  The other is crust skiing season.  This “season” can come and go throughout the spring, depending on the conditions.  We had those perfect conditions for our spring break week earlier in March.  And, after weeks of fresh snow, we just hit those conditions again today.

crust skiing during our spring breakPerfect spring crust skiing conditions arrive when the snow base is still deep but the spring sun has been beating on the top layer of snow for a day or two.  Then, if you get a hard freeze overnight, the snow forms a perfect firm crust that you can walk on, bike on or ski on.  No grooming equipment needed to pack down the snow, you just go wherever you want.

This morning I anticipated those conditions and grabbed my skis as I headed out the door to the Lodge.  After getting a few things done in the office, waiting for the sun to peek over the Continental Divide, I put on my boots, hopped over the fence (it’s easy as it’s only peeking out about 4 inches above the snow) and hit the meadows.

Skating around the ranch property on the crust allows for you to go almost anywhere.  I was in the meadows, playing slalom with the aspens, and dodging willows.  Then I crossed a snow bridge over the creek, hopped a few more fences and ended up enjoying the sun breaking over the mountain as I headed toward Indian Hill.  You can ski fast and far without much effort on the crust.

wildlife at Vista Verde RanchI didn’t see much wildlife, but there were a lot of tracks, and I was being watched at one point by a large winged friend (couldn’t tell what kind of hawk it was).  Otherwise, it was perfectly silent and I glided across the snow.

Although we’re all dreaming of summer days right now, we would be foolish to not seize the moment to enjoy these experiences during our spring break!  You never know what and when the right conditions will apply, but if you want to explore the idea of having a spring break vacation while we’re open in March next year, maybe we’ll get you out crust skiing!

Confession: I might like winter

By Malori

snowBefore I came to work at Vista Verde, I cringed at the mere thought of winter. The most common response I receive when I say that is, “Um, aren’t you from Colorado?” Yes. I am a Colorado native and I hate winter. Well, used to hate winter. Thanks to VVR, I may actually be warming up to winter – just a little.

I guess in some ways you can blame my distaste for winter on my gene pool. I generally blame all my “glitches” on my gene pool. My mom is a long time hater of wind, snow, ice and everything cold. Naturally, like her, I got cold easily which makes being out in the cold an unpleasant and usually brief experience. I went downhill skiing at least twice a year when I was younger, but I just never could get past the icy chill the trips up the lift left me with.

It wasn’t until I was introduced to back country skiing, snowshoeing, snow biking, and skate skiing that I decided: maybe winter isn’t so bad after all. All those activities actually keep me warm enough to stay outside, and in doing that, have open my eyes to how beautiful and fun winter is! Navigating through a silent snow covered forest is a magical experience – and riding a bike on snow, who would have thought!? Now, I find myself looking forward to the change of seasons and even feel a tinge of excitement when I see those snowflakes falling. I guess all I can say is, if you think you hate winter, give it another chance, coming from the CO girl who used to hate winter.

Closed for the off-season but we’re still busy!

By Steph

Often times when I tell people we are closed for the off-season, they ask me what I’m going to do with all my free time.  Well, even though we’re not open for guests to come stay at the ranch, it doesn’t mean we’re not busy.  In fact, for certain folks at the ranch this is the busiest time of the year.  Bill, who oversees all our buildings, vehicles and water system has a list so long he barely found time to take off for a little vacation.  Down at the barn, the wranglers are working busily, trying to get as many colts started as possible and working on the 2 and 3 year olds to get them polished up with their training.  In the office, we are still busy booking reservations, getting all the logistics of the winter season in place and have just finished hiring the last of the winter staff.

I took a little walk around the ranch just now so I could catch up with what everyone is doing and how things are coming along.  For those of you who have been following the progression of the season, you may be shocked to know that almost all that snow we had last week has melted.  So, now it’s a bit of a muddy mess.  That’s the story this time of year: snow comes and then it melts, then it comes in again, then it melts.  Hence, why we close down.  Last week I was skiing, and this week I brought my running shoes back out.

On my little walkabout, I first ran into Charlie and Brandon.  They spent last week demo’ing the deteriorating deck of the Adventure Center in a blizzard.  This week they’ve been enjoying the sunshine as they rebuild the decking.  They had the music playing in between the noise of the saws, drills, hammers, etc…

Next up was a stop by the bunkhouse, where Bill and Bubba are preparing for a remodel.  Right now they are just hauling out furniture to empty the place out.  In the coming weeks they will be re-doing the layout of the downstairs and adding a set of stairs to get up to the bunks.  We will all miss the days of climbing up the ladder to go to bed…..well, maybe someone will miss those days, or not.

After the bunkhouse, I headed down to the indoor arena.  I didn’t stop by the housekeeping area to say hi to Devyn, as I had just seen her earlier.  She is back here between trips and catching up on some of her to-do list.  The machine shed was pretty quiet as Carson is off for a bit, and Nathan and KP were up at the barn doing some cleaning.

 

 

ranch quarter horsesOnce in the indoor arena, I saw John and Annie riding Cali and Reyna.  Both of those fillies are coming along really well and look great.  John and Annie shared that they have really enjoyed spending some time this off-season hauling a few horses to a local horse trainer friend of ours to ride with him.  They’ve picked up a ton of new ideas and had fun getting a different perspective from his training philosophy.  As much as we all know Terry is loaded with knowledge, it is great to get a different point of view in horse training.

As I headed back down to the Lodge, I saw the carpet cleaners making their way down cabin row.  This week they are cleaning all the carpets so we can go into the winter season with everything spic and span!  Back at the Lodge Melissa and Malori were busy in the office, working on their many projects.  Melissa has been fielding phone calls all day long about our winter season.  People are definitely thinking winter right now and are asking a lot of questions about what we do and when they can come to the ranch.

And Ben?  Well, he’s just sitting around by the pool eating bon-bons.  Actually, I suspect he would be thrilled to take a break from budgets and insurance policies to sit by a freezing cold pool right now.

So, yes, there is definitely still activity going on here at Vista Verde during the off-season.  It may be a little more quiet around here right now, but once the snow sticks and we have our winter wonderland in place for all of you we’ll be ready!

Dreams of Winter

Dear Vista Verde,
In a humble, agricultural community in Central California, there lives a quiet man and wife. In this little town, the man works in a local hardware store, encouraging others with humor and advice. His wife works at a local high school as a nurse, giving students smiles and care. They loyally earn their keep to provide for their daughter’s university education, as well as call and support their son, who fights for a career miles away in New York City. Their lifestyle is simple, full of long workdays and quiet dinners together. Every night, before they drift off to sleep to recharge for another day, they dream about a time of relaxation—of a temporary break from it all. And they deserve it.
As their daughter, I deeply appreciate their guidance, and admire their strength to provide for our family. I also know about their secret desire to briefly escape to the outdoors, and their beautiful love for each other. I have seen them sigh over the photos of Vista Verde, dreaming about its comforts but honorably pushing it away to fulfill priorities. Now that the dream can be a reality, and you ask, “How would THEY make most of your Vista Verde winter vacation?” Well, this is what I envision…
Their gasps as they take in Colorado’s winter wonderland.
Joined anticipation of time in your lovely cabins.
A snow trek in the morning, a sleigh ride in the evening.
Clinking glasses at a dinner not made by their own hands.
Skiing and spa time, horse-back riding and exploring.
Joy and rest, that before was impossible.
A trip away from all they have ever known.
To a place they cannot, but would love to forever call home.

Dream 30th

I would love to do something so very special for my wonderful wife for her 30th birthday! Not only has she given me 5 amazing years of marriage, but our little girl was born in October 2012. Now I want to give her something that she’ll remember for the rest of her life. I want to show her that I care and adore her like she deserves to be.

We both love the Colorado winter and love being in the mountains, especially so near “Dreamboat.” There just isn’t any other place we’d rather be. Skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, and relaxing are all on a list of our favorite things to do. And what about a romantic sunset snowmobile tour? I think so.

Please help me make this dream 30th come true.
