Black Mountain Ranch Corona Virus Updates & Info


Dear Friends,

Wow are these interesting times we are living in.  Fear reigns and of course we are scared too.  I just wanted to send a letter of reassurance those of you who have booked your summer trip with us and those of you considering it.  Our cancellation policy has always been that we will refund your deposit in full if you cancel your reservation more than 30 days out.  Once you are within the 30 days our policy has been to allow you to move your deposit to another week.  

We’ve had a great winter at the ranch with deep snow which means lots of green grass this summer.  The horses are still at winter pasture, we will bringing them back to the ranch the first week of May.  We have a great crew hired for this summer with lots of returning folks and some new faces.

We hope you have plenty of TP and are ready for an exciting trip to the high country in Colorado.  Horses, fresh air and lots of room to roam could be just the ticket to put all this madness behind!

Wishing you and your families the best,
The May Family
