When you book a vacation at Vista Verde Ranch, you can relax knowing that our all-inclusive rates are truly all-inclusive.  Below is a breakdown of the winter rates along with a list of what is included in your Colorado getaway.  During the Christmas and New Year vacation times we offer 7-night stay packages.  Otherwise, the minimum stay is 3-nights, and you may arrive and depart on any day, although we encourage a Saturday-Saturday stay for the best guest experience.

Please note that there is no additional service charge or gratuity as our staff does not work for tips.

Check In and Check Out

You are welcome to check-in anytime after 4pm on the day of arrival and check-out is at 9:30am on the day of departure. While we do our best to accommodate early arrivals or late departures, depending on the schedule of other guests, special accommodations may not be possible in all circumstances.  Guided activities are not included on the day of check-in or check-out, but you are welcome to enjoy the ranch facilities and amenities if you arrive early, or need to stay a bit later.

Deposit and Cancellation Policy

A 50% deposit is required to secure most reservations.  In the event of a cancellation more than 90 days prior to arrival, your deposit will be returned less a $100/person cancellation fee.  Less than 90 days prior to arrival, your deposit will be returned less a $100/person cancellation fee if we are able to rebook your space.  Sometimes life happens, so we recommend purchasing trip insurance, such as Travel Guard.

Gearing up for your Winter vacation

If you live where you’ll never see snow, buying winter clothing can seem daunting.  Also, if you have children who will outgrow their snow clothes before their next winter vacation, it’s hard to invest in all the gear.  Well, we found a great option for you!  We haven’t tried them ourselves, but KitLender.com comes recommended from blogger Luxury Travel Mom.   They offer rental winter outerwear, and you can have it shipped right to the ranch so it’s waiting for you upon arrival.  Now, keep in mind that this gear is going to be a bit heavy for cross country and backcountry skiing, as it’s intended more for downhill skiing.  But it’s great if you have kids who are still growing and for the other snow-play going on at the ranch in the winter such as horseback riding, tubing, snowmobiling, and more.

Also, please note that we have a small fleet of over boots that are available for our guests to rent if you are hesitant to buy winter boots.  They fit over your shoes and provide warmth and traction in the snow.
