Winter Fun at a Guest Ranch

Friday, December 9th, 2016

Winter is upon us and although the temperature has dropped considerably in many destinations it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t consider adding a dude ranch vacation to your holiday plans. In fact, wintertime means that there are lots of new adventures to be experienced and enjoyed with friends and loved ones. Guest ranches are an excellent option to consider when booking your winter wonderland escape. Though several guest ranches do close down during this period there are many that stay open all year round and they offer a diverse range of activities to choose from. Also, keep in mind that some of the more southerly located ranches experience very mild winters and may be more suited to those who would rather avoid cooler temperatures and snow. Here are a few  guest ranches that offer winter snow vacation packages:

Crystal Waters Guest Ranch, Bridge Lake, British Columbia, Canada 

When winter hits the region in late November the ranch is covered by a snowy blanket and it becomes a playground for winter enthusiasts. Guests who stay at Crystal Waters Guest Ranch during this time can choose from a list of fun outdoor activities or they can simply curl up with a good book in their private log cabin that resides on the shores of Crystal Lake. For those seeking to enjoy the outdoors there are snowshoes available which provides a wonderful opportunity to follow the tracks of the region’s bountiful wildlife. Fishermen will love the peace and quiet found sitting by a hole in the ice with their fishing pole and horse lovers will be thrilled riding through snow-powdered plains. Then, after a fun-filled day of exploring join other guests by a roaring fire and share the day’s experiences while sipping on a hot drink or perhaps take in a sauna.

If you feel the need for speed you can bring your own snowmobile or let the ranch help you organize a rental to use during your stay. There are lots of exciting places to explore. Plus during the winter Crystal Lake provides a great surface for ice-skating or playing ice hockey. If you are looking for a more peaceful activity cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are an excellent way to explore this Winter Wonderland. Downhill ski enthusiasts and snow-boarders will love the close proximity of the ranch to Sun Peaks Mountain known throughout the world for its light, dry, “Champagne Powder.” Here you can also find Heli Skiing/Snow-boarding at its best! Plan on getting up early to make a day of it so that you can be back in the evening to enjoy sitting by the fire.
