Winter Horseback Riding

Join us on a 2 hour horseback ride over the hills and through the trees of snowy Saddleback Ranch. Gaze at the Flattops, Sleeping Giant and Mt. Werner. Let us show you where our ancestors homesteaded the ranch more than 100 years ago. After your ride, warm up with a cup of hot chocolate and a freshly baked cookie.


Strap on your spurs, pull down your hat and ride Saddleback Ranch's tubing hill. Located just 15 miles west of Steamboat Springs, YEE-HAW HILL is sure to be the highlight of your vacation. The tubing hill is groomed and equipped with a state of the art tube-tow lift system that attaches itself to the tube to transport you back to the top. From there speed down the hill on a large inner tube provided by the ranch. At the bottom, warm up in our brand new warming lodge, grab a bite to eat, a warm drink and hit the slope again. Snow tubing is a fun winter recreation suitable for kids and adults of all ages.

Dinner Sleigh Rides

It is a 30 minute sliegh ride to the Double Dollar Lodge. You will be greeted with a warm cup of hot chocolate or hot apple cider and the smell of delicious home-cooked meal. After dessert, kick up your heels and do a little dancing with your partner or let us teach you how to calf rope. You are sure to have a great time! It's a very family friendly experience! Saddleback Ranch is the only sleigh ride that provides front door transportation from your condo or hotel.
