If you've never done a sleigh ride, do it now. It's so much fun to watch the horses get hitched up, climb in and snuggle under wool blankets for a ride through the snow, in the dark. It's cold so dress warm! We saw two young male moose loping around the fences, that was pretty cool. My boys are 4 and 7 and they loved it. After the sleigh loops around, you're back at home base for a warm, filling, delicious cowboy steak dinner: salad, warm bread, baked potato, baked beans, peach cobbler. My boys ate every bite after a long day of ice skating, tubing and skiing. This is an awesome family memory!

Liz,

Thanks so much for bringing your family to ride with us, your boys were a lot of fun to host! We pride ourselves on having food "even the kids will eat" so it's always good to hear we're still living up to that promise. The moose are hard to schedule, but they've been making a lot of appearances this winter. See you again soon!

Excellent staff, horses and scenery! Our family went on the group sleigh ride with hot chocolate and marshmallow roast. This was a great adventure, our children all under 12 said this was the best!

Highly recommend!

Lovely sleigh ride. We did the 3:30 pm ride and it was a great time to go. Great for kids! Very friendly staff. Did the cocoa ride so no opinion on the dinner ride.

My family (4 adults, 3 kids, 2 toddlers) visited from Texas on a Sunday afternoon. We called to make reservations and were able to fit into the ride even though they were booked for the week. (: Since 3 adults are Veterans, we were very happy to see there was a Military Discount! The ride was amazing. Colorado is beyond beautiful, and our guide was more than friendly!! It got very cold, but each sleigh had blankets available. Definitely recommend!

I'm so glad you and your family were able to visit us.

Please, active duty military and veterans, let us know whenever you're visiting. With your ID it's your whole family that receives the Military Discount, not just you! Thank you for all that you do. If there is a special occasion we can help you celebrate memorably, don't hesitate to let us know.

We really loved it!! Incredible family Christmas Eve memory!! The staff was so nice and welcoming! The only reason this isn't getting 5 bubbles is the fire pit at the Homestead was small, we had 16 riders on our sleigh so it was hard for everyone to get warm by the fire (and it was cold)! If they would expand the fire pit and put some log benches surrounding the fire it would have felt so inviting and really would have been the perfect addition to this sleigh ride.

Robin,

I'm glad our staff lived up to expectation, but I'm sorry our fires did not. We have added a second fire pit for larger rides like yours, and will be looking into possible benches instead of picnic tables next year; with so many lodge pole pines down from the beetles, we're always interested in new projects.

Thanks for the feedback, and many thanks for the photos! Always love to catch our seniors Bilbo and Beryl (brown team) goofing around.

See you again this summer for a warmer time?

Best,
Sarah and The Winter Crew
