Spring Getaways at C Lazy U Ranch
A Vibrant Season for Short Getaways to a Luxury Colorado Dude Ranch
The C Lazy U guest ranch is one of the best all-inclusive dude ranches in Colorado, and we truly shine in the springtime. Spring is one of the high seasons for groups at the ranch: we’re bustling with ranch weddings, family reunions, teambuilding events and corporate retreats. The one thing all these groups have in common is the desire to enjoy all that the ranch — and Colorado — has to offer.
Our all-inclusive spring vacation packages provides everything you need to make your Colorado trip the best it can be:
- Lodging, with cozy family-style or couples’ cabins
- Meals, featuring cowboy-style breakfasts, lunches and gourmet dinners
- Spring ranch activities, including horseback riding, mountain biking, fly fishing and more
From fly fishing on private waters to long horseback trail rides through the blooming landscape of the Rocky Mountains, spring is a feast for the senses in Colorado. Bring the family or a group of friends and plan a totally unique spring break vacation at the C Lazy U!
A Typical Day During Spring Vacations at C Lazy U Ranch
Spring Mornings at the Ranch
Wake up each morning to watch the sun rise above the Rocky Mountains as the horses graze in the corral. You’ll be greeted with a warm cup of Cowboy Coffee and ample ranch-style breakfast enjoyed with the whole family. After filling up for the morning, you’ll head off for the day’s activities.
Spring Afternoons at the Ranch
Spring is an ideal time to visit a Colorado dude ranch for adults, as the changing weather allows for even more activities. For the first half of April, you can still ski; the rest of the time, you can take part in a number of activities:
- Horseback riding: Take a ride among the wildflowers on the trails.
- Spa: Pamper yourself with massages and other treatments at the award-winning Lazy You Spa.
- Hiking: Indulge in Colorado’s scenic vistas during a long hike through the mountains.
- Mountain biking: Get your adrenaline flowing on the winding trails.
- Fly fishing: An Orvis-endorsed lodge, we offer fishing enthusiasts the chance to fish in private streams.
Trap shooting, archery, a ropes course and zip line and hatchet throwing are also on the ranch’s list of activities — but how you enjoy your spring vacation at C Lazy U Ranch is entirely up to you.
Spring Evenings at the Ranch
When the sun sets, adults and kids enjoy a gourmet meal in the evening, followed by entertainment such as games, music, live entertainment and a campfire around which guests swap stories and share their experiences.

Springtime Fun for the Kids
Spring at the ranch is all about family togetherness. As opposed to summer vacations where children spend their days having fun with their peers and counselors, parents and kids stay together for family rides, ranch activities, meals and more.
The supervised Kids Program is reopened during holiday weekends such as Memorial Day, where they’ll spend time taking part in their own ranch adventure. Each age group has its own designated age-appropriate activities:
- Horseback riding
- Game-filled Kids Corral
- Scavenger hunt
- Talent shows
- Hatchet throwing
- And much more!
Kids will dine together in the evenings before rejoining their families for a night filled with games, music, lively entertainment and a cozy campfire with s’mores.
During all of it, you’ll receive our superior service, which means we go the extra mile to make sure that your stay is as wonderful as possible. It’s what makes C Lazy U Colorado’s premier guest ranch and the top choice for your next spring vacation.
