A Typical Day During Winter Vacations at C Lazy U Ranch

Winter Mornings at the Ranch

After waking up in a warm, inviting cabin, guests are greeted with a hot cup of Cowboy Coffee and hearty ranch-style family breakfast that includes all the favorites, including pancakes, eggs, sausage, hash browns, fruit and pastries. Once guests are full and ready for adventure, the kids are wrangled into age-appropriate groups for the supervised Kids Program while the adults go off on their own winter adventures.

Winter Afternoons at the Ranch

best-dude-ranch-winter-award

Adults have access to endless on-ranch winter activities without ever having to leave the property. There are tons of complimentary winter activities at the ranch:

  • Horseback rides: Ride through the snowy mountain trails for breathtaking views.
  • Ice hockey and skating: Hold family-friendly games and competition on the Zamboni-groomed pond.
  • Snowmobiling*: Zoom around the ranch for a thrilling outdoor winter experience.
  • Snowtubing: Hit the private tubing hill for hours of downhill fun.

Sleigh rides, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing round out the winter sports offered at C Lazy U Ranch. Major ski resorts are within close proximity as well. After you’ve had your fill of the chilly Colorado air, warm up in the hot tub or head to the full-service Lazy You Spa for a relaxing massage or Cowboy Soak in a copper tub.

Winter Evenings at the Ranch

When the sun has set, the adults head to the Main Lodge for a gourmet meal that can be paired with your choice of wine, beer or cocktails, shared over an elegantly set table and excellent table service.

Cozy winter evenings are spent with the family inside at the fireside enjoying hot cocoa, games, music and evening entertainment. When the skies are clear, we’ll host a campfire — complete with s’mores, of course — outside to chat, tell ghost stories and enjoy the starlit sky.

“Great family vacation”

We took our kids (ages 12, 10 and 9) and had a great time. Plenty to do for everybody. We rode horses, went tubing, and skiing. The staff is very friendly and ready to help with any request. The food was amazing.
