Was looking for an "authentic" western experience trip without all of the families (sorry) at a dude ranch and the blandness of a chain.
Found the Big EZ and found heaven on earth.
The price isn't for the faint of heart, but it does come with some of the best food you've eaten ever (Polo, the chef, beats Le Cirque any day, and NYC doesn't know how to make Elk taste beter than filet).
The service is to die for. You'll get set up with the best local outfitters--we got a woman who is basically Annie Oakley for a private ride into a game reserve, and the best damn fly fishing guide--we caught NINE rainbow trout when experts across the way got nothing.
Then they have a 20 person "hot tub/relaxation pool" that basically acts like an infinity pool overlooking pristine mountains--and the occasional moose.
Everyone there could not be nicer. Look for Chuck, the retired neo-natal doctor cum kick-butt breakfast chef (he'll give you his recipies if you ask nicely). He's just looking for some good conversation and to show you his "petws"--including a two ton steer.
For two girls from NYC, we came city slickers but left friends. Who could ask for more?
