Black Mountain Ranch is located high in the Rockies halfway between Vail and Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Arriving on Sunday afternoon, your week long package includes lodging, all meals, unlimited horseback riding, an overnight pack trip, a longhorn cattle drive, whitewater rafting, fly and spin fishing, rifle and trap shooting, and mid-June through mid-August, a trip to the local rodeo. There are no hidden or extra fees for any of our activities. We own all our horses and take pride in finding the right horse for each rider- whether it is a gentle seasoned mount for the novice or a more spirited ranch horse for the experienced rider. And yes, we let you lope!
