Black Mountain Ranch Corona Virus Updates & Info


Dear Friends,

Well we are now closed for 2020, our scheduled reopening is our first Adult Only week starting May 23.  This update is to give you an idea how 2020 went and what we are looking at for 2021.

I’m pleased to report NO Covid cases at the ranch this summer.  We were diligent in following the protocols set out by the State.  Masking, social distancing, reduced capacity in the dining room and saloon were all part of it.  Lots of sanitizer was applied, thanks to everyone for going along!

We enjoyed having the band play on the new deck at the arena this summer while we were team roping under the lights.  The new grass amphitheater was a hit with the guests and we will be adding a permanent tiki bar down there this spring.  It was dancing in the dirt instead of dancing on the bar.

We had a lot of cancellations in the early part of the summer but towards the end of the season we were pretty darn busy.  Thanks to all of you who rolled your reservations into 2021, at this point our bookings are up over 50% from last year at this time.  

Please remember that all deposits are fully refundable during these trying times, we encourage you to book now with confidence knowing that your deposit is secure no matter what.
