I believe this is my 4th review of VVR. This was our first winter stay with them, we're typically summer visitors. We had the pleasure of staying for 12 days over Christmas. What an amazing stay. I will say being there in the winter is very different from the summer as far as activities go, which was great. We spent...

This was a bucket list trip and we were not disappointed! There is not enough words to express what an incredible vacation we had, in spite of the fact one in our party had a snowmobile accident. We began our stay in an incredible cabin, Sand. It was beautifully furnished and not too far from the main lodge. A fully...

Wow, we are so touched that you wrote this review. We know that an accident, even a freak one, will change a vacation experience dramatically, and ruin it for some. The fact that you all still are going above and beyond to share the positive aspects of your vacation is humbling to us. The four of you were such a...

We cannot say enough good things about our experience at Vista Verde Ranch!! My husband and I chose the ranch to get married and "Elope on the Slopes." From the moment we made our first phone calls, with my mountain list of questions, to our drop off at the airport after our stay, we were welcomed with open arms! The...

Twenty years ago we decided that rather than exchange Christmas gifts as a family we would treat each other to a group vacation, and that's what we have done at Vista Verde Ranch ever since. We range in age from 8 to 81, live scattered around the US, and rarely have a chance to relax and spend time together--except for...

Heaven is the word to best describe our experiences at VVR. Our family of four have been there 5 times, three times in the summer and twice in the winter season.

I received this trip as a Christmas gift from my husband. We didn't know what to expect having never been at a Dude Ranch before. My husband called to ask questions a couple of different times before the trip and was always treated like family. When we arrived at the airport a cowboy picked us up. The Ranch had already...

We have visited Vista Verde Ranch in both the Summer and Winter. I'll admit we love the Winter just a bit more. We especially enjoy the cross-country skiing and back-country skiing. You typically go with a guide who leads you to places where you'll find untouched snow and where you'll be winding through the woods - all while getting a...
