Planning a Media Stay at Vista Verde
Who: Professional journalists on assignment and qualified social media influencers. You are invited to bring along a guest to enjoy the VVR experience with you.
What: A 3-night all-inclusive stay for approved media partners and their guest. We want you to experience the ranch just like any guest, so you pick and choose what you want to do each day based on your interests.
When: Typically, the ranch does not have availability for media visits during most of the summer. There are more opportunities during the winter. Every media visit is unique, and we will explore availability with each visit on a case-by-case basis.
Where: For winter getaways, it is ideal to fly directly into the Steamboat/Hayden (HDN) airport, where a ranch hand from Vista Verde will pick you up and bring you to the ranch. Alternatively, you may opt to fly into the Denver airport, rent a car, and enjoy the scenic drive through the mountains to the Vista Verde. Plan on approximately 4 hours’ drive time and potentially inclement mountain weather.
How: Contact Stephanie Wilson to request a media visit.
