Timing and Climate
Riding is fun all year round. Our main season for pack trips in the mountains is between June and September, the Mountain Prairie Combo Spring Edition runs in May and the Indian Summer Spectacular in October.
All year round we offer ranch-based riding vacations. Stay in our guesthouse, ride during the day and return to a warm bed and shower in the evening.
Our summers are usually sunny, dry and warm and are best experienced in July and August. September and October appear in vivid fall colours, often accompanied by warm and clear Indian Summer days. From November through February we enjoy snow covered winter landscapes, clear blue skies and temperatures between +15 and -30 degrees. In March and April the days are getting longer and the sun more powerful, though snow may come and go until mid May. By the middle of May the trees are normally beginning to leaf at the ranch and further east, but the mountains will wait a month before greening-up. June is the typical Mountain Spring month, with snow still covering the mountaintops above lush green pastures, abundant wildflowers and fast flowing rivers.
