What fun! I was recently included with a group of 15 ladies for an overnite excursion to Kremmling. I know, I know…Kremmling, you say? Well there is this gem of a guest ranch there with cozy cabins, a dining hall, and recreation lodge complete with a hot tub. Latigo Ranch may not be the most well known dude ranch in Colorado or the busiest in the winter, but with 60 km of groomed skate and classic trails, it should be.
We arrived Sunday around noon…just in time for lunch, imagine that. The food was excellent with most everything made on the premises, including the chocolate chip cookies. After lunch, amazingly, we all skiied rather than succumb to the nap that would normally follow such a sumptous feeding. The fast girls left the rest of us to our own devices, but the map was easy to follow and we all returned in time for wine and dinner!
After a festive evening celebrating a 60th birthday in our group, we retired to prepare for more food and fun on Monday morning. Breakfast was a smorgasboard of made to order eggs, bacon, sausages, french toast and pancakes, as well as fruit, homemade granola, yoghurt, muffins and bread. The homemade bread was the most dense, moist whole wheat bread I’ve ever had! We then all took off on a variety of trails for more fun before returning to Steamboat.
Even with all the recreational opportunites that Steamboat affords, the Latigo getaway was a nice change. If you want to know more about Steamboat Springs or Latigo Ranch, call or email.
