About

For a truly unique experience, take a break from skiing and go for a ride in the snow! Let our surefooted horses guide you through the snow-covered aspen trees in the silence of Winter's simple beauty. Once you leave the corrals you will not see a sign of civilization until your return. We've lived in the valley for 6 generations and have been outfitting and riding horses through the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness area, located in the Routt National Forest, since 1962. We recommend you wear ski clothing for the winter rides. Horses do not run on hourly trail rides.
