I love that Saddleback Ranch is a longtime family-owned establishment. If still feels that way too. Nice perks of door to door shuttle service (one of the owners even picked us up) and that everyone is friendly who works there. We had a fun block of hours snowmobiling through the mountains and their land. After the tour they had cookies... More

We started the night tucked under a wool blanket on a long horse pulled sleigh. Scotch and Rocks were beautiful Belgian Horses that were well groomed and happy to do their work. The ride took us around the ranch as our driver kept us engaged with stories and local trivia. They took us to their mess hall decorated with their... More

This was a fun afternoon. Better tubing than I've done before. Long runs (green, blue and black). Easy going and helpful staff. Affordable compared to skiing. One adult not skiing one day at Steamboat paid for a 7 person family tubing!

My husband and I were expecting a relaxing afternoon of horseback trail riding. What we got was a terrifying experience. Our guide went off trail and straight up the side of the mountain into 4 or 5 feet of snow. The horses were stumbling and I was being jerked around by the horse. Downhill was worse. At the halfway point,... More

First of all they have great customer service! Very friendly employees! My husband and I went to the tubing hill on a Monday morning. After a very brief safety video we walked out to the tubing hills-Moe, Curly and Larry. Only 2 off the hills were operational but that was fine. We had a blast for 1.5 hrs on them.... More

Outstanding day at the saddle back ranch. Our tour guide Laramie was awesome. Machines were top of the line and scenery couldn't be beat. Will definitely come back!

Our sleighride dinner was the best experience we had during our trip to Steamboat! Our 3 year old daugher loved getting pulled on the sleigh by Scotch and Rock and we even heard coyotes in the distance on the way to the Double Dollar lodge for dinner. The steak and salmon was excellent and the roping lesson and dancing capped... More

It was a great value and lots of fun. The only thing I would ask is to wash the windows on the bus transportation. It was like traveling in a tube and I hate to miss pretty views.

My son and I went for a 2 hr. snowmobile tour today combined with the tubing hill. We were picked up at our hotel for the 20 min drive to the ranch. The snowmobile tour took us up on trails to the top of a nearby ridge with scenic views to the east and west. We then went down the... More
