We have done several other sleigh ride dinners and tubing excursions on our visits to Colorado. This was the most fun. The people at Saddleback Ranch was super friendly and fun for kids and adults alike. The tubing is unlike anything we have experienced before. There are no run (lanes) to go down. Once your get off of the tow... More

We elected to drive out and had no trouble getting tubes and enjoying the fun on our own schedule. I noted the website states "Ski Helmets are not provided but recommended". We rode the blue and green with our grand kids and found them to be fun and relatively gentle. The oldest grandchild elected to go down the black and... More

We did the two hour tubing outing with transportation from the downtown area included. They have three tubing runs--easy, intermediate (the fastest run), and difficult (includes a jump), all served from a single lift. People had a lot of fun going down the intermediate run in various formations, including a chain which got to be 20+ tubes long at one... More

This was our 2nd time tubing at Yee Haw Adventures at Saddleback ranch. Awesome fun both times. 1st our kids were 3 and 5 and this trip they were 11 and 13: works perfectly for both age ranges! A lift takes you up and you tube back down. Nice fast/long run. Lodge at bottom has hotdogs and hot cocoa.

I am so glad we found this place on our last night in town. The sleigh ride with dinner is worth the $$$ but the snow tubing here is the best in town.

Family of 6, there on 12/30. The people at the ranch were wonderful, but the overall experience wasn't great - to be fair, possibly in part due to very high volume time over the holidays, and very cold temperatures (0 or below day we were there). On bus ride out to ranch, had to wait for one group that was... More

We went on our Yee Haw Adventure at Saddleback Ranch on Saturday, 1/3/15. There were 7 of us (4 adults and 3 kids ranging in age from 10-13). This was a highlight of our ski vacation to Steamboat! The driver picked us up promptly at 3:30 from the Gondola Center and took us to the tube park first. WOW…tubing was... More

We did the horseback riding today. All I can say- is it was wonderful. Breathtaking sights, our horses- Lucy and Foxy were great girls- our guide Caleb was fun and personable. I would recommend doing this to anyone! So much fun.
