The Snowy Backcountry at its Best
Explore our alpine forests on The Ranch and beyond
Each winter, our extensive hiking trail system transforms into ski trails through pine forests and meadows. For most cross-country skiing activities, The Ranch offers guided classic Nordic skiing on Echo Lake trail as part of our all-inclusive activities program. Novice to advanced skiers can set off on an off-Ranch excursion on groomed trails through alpine forests that stretch further into the pristine Montana wilderness. Depending upon the trail and your pace, cross-country skiing can be a relaxed activity or one of the best calorie-burning workouts available during the winter months.
