Horseback Riding in the Snow/ Del’s Triangle Tree Ranch

For a truly unique experience, take a horseback ride in the snow! Let our surefooted horses guide you through the snow-covered aspen trees in the silence of Winter’s simple beauty. Once you leave the corrals you will not see a sign of civilization until your return. We’ve lived in the valley for 6 generations and have been outfitting and riding horses through the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness area, located in the Routt National Forest, since 1962. We recommend you wear ski clothing for the winter rides.

Location

18 miles north of the town of Steamboat just past historic Clark, Colorado.
A shuttle is available to transport you to the ranch and back to town and pick up is at the Gondola Transit Center at the mountain.
