The family who operates Saddleback along with the food was WONDERFUL; entertainment was eh! The sleigh ride did not face forward so everyone did not have a good view and we rode back in a bus; which was a let down.

We were here in late December 2013. WHAT a BLAST!!! We had the absolute best time! Everyone in our group, ages 4-65, had the best time snow tubing! Their set up is so easy and makes it so enjoyable. It wasn't crowded and the views were amazing. We then took a group snow mobile tour which was also just awesome!... More

We have visited Saddleback Ranch several times over the years. This winter we went tubing (awesome as always) and also did a nighttime dinner with sleigh ride. What a great place! The service is top notch. Reservations can be made online or you can call and talk to someone who will answer all you questions. The sleigh ride dinner was... More

Was gonna go tubing today but mother nature has decided that spring has sprung in the rockies and the tubing hill was closed. Had fun other wise. Very nice people at the ranch. To bad Anne B did not call like we did before she went out to see that mother nature closed the tubing hill.

Our family has visited Saddleback almost every year when in Steamboat; both in the winter and summer. They have great activities for the whole family. We were lucky to be able to tube on YeeHaw Tubing Hill this March because of some good spring snow. They are a wonderful family run business where everyone goes out of there way to... More

This is a great way to experience the beautiful ranch and countryside of Steamboat Springs. Fun for all ages: families, couples, or a group of friends. The ranch will pick you up at your residence and return you at the end of the evening - perfect arrangement so you can partake in a cocktail or two. The family & staff... More

We had never been snowtubing so we decided to try out Saddleback Ranch for this activity. This was one of the most fun things we did on our trip! The ride on the bus out to the ranch was a real treat...it was so beautiful! Once we got there we went into the cabin for instructions. Inside the cabin was... More

My friend and I spent the morning tubing at Saddleback Ranch during our trip to Steamboat in March and it was awesome! The tubing runs were so much fun and I love that the ranch is outside of town so we got a taste of the Colorado countryside. Everyone was so nice at the ranch and they provided transportation from...

First just let me say that I've been riding for over 30 years. The horses are wonderful, and the people even more so. They're the kindest, friendliest people you'd ever want to meet. The horses are well-kept, excellent dispositions and very well trained. You can tell the people as well as the horses love what they do. I've always said... More
