Black Mountain Ranch Corona Virus Updates & Info


Dear Friends,

With the COVID-19 pandemic I wanted to give you an update on how we are handling things at the ranch.   In this upcoming season of uncertainty we will be following all County, State and Federal guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our customers and staff.  We are a fully licensed establishment and have always complied with regulations issued by the Routt County Environmental Health Department and the Colorado Department of Health.  We will implement all guidelines and regulations as they become available and will keep you advised.

On Monday April 27, Colorado has lifted the stay at home order with social distancing still in effect.

Routt County has extended the ban on short term lodging until May 31.

Until we are notified to the contrary, we are opening for the season on June 7.  If this changes, rest assured your deposit will be fully refundable.

After staying at home for the last couple of months we hope you are ready to live again!  Come ride a horse and explore the beautiful Colorado High Country where Social distancing is the norm.

Looking forward to seeing you this summer.

With love from the May Family
