Fall Family Bucket List

Fall is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start putting together your fall family bucket list! To help you out, we have put together a list of must-do fall activities for you and the family at Snow Mountain ranch this year. While there are a plethora of programs to choose from, these are our five fall favorites!

1. Disc Golf

Take a fall day and enjoy a family-friendly game of disc golf on our 18-hole course! Explore the scenery of Snow Mountain Ranch while you put your Frisbee skills to the test. Autumn on the ranch is like nothing you’ve ever seen before – the beautiful colors of the leaves combined with the fresh brisk air is one of nature’s most wonderful gifts.

2. Horseback Riding / Wagon Rides 

Take the family on an adventure this fall and ride across our 5,100 acre ranch on horseback! Channel your inner frontiersman and become cowboys and cowgirls for the day. You will travel through open meadows and forests filled with spruce and aspen, as well as ride by beaver ponds, creeks, and original homestead dwellings. To top it all off, your breath is guaranteed to be swept away by the stunning views of the Continental Divide. Depending on your adventurous level, you and your family can choose between 1-4 hour rides, with the option of joining our cowboys and cowgirls for breakfast or dinner.

3. Spruce Saddle Adventure Zone

What better place for a fun family outing than at the new Spruce Saddle Adventure Zone! Featuring a pendulum swing, small zip-line, twisted log ladder, climbing wall and more, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a fall afternoon. Join us at our grand opening on Sunday, August 27th at 2:00 pm!

4. Craft Shop 

Head over to the Craft Shop and make some neat artwork before taking on the more adventurous activities on your family’s itinerary! Choose between jewelry making, leather stamping, tie-dye, mosaics, glass fusion, painting pottery, wood burning, or enameling copper as your project. Whether you’re a novice, intermediate, or advanced artist, our staff is here to help you create the perfect souvenir.

5. Campfires 

Spend your fall evenings making s’mores, singing campfire songs, and star gazing by the campfire! It’s the perfect activity to do after a long day of horseback riding, hiking, and other fun filled activities offered at Snow Mountain Ranch. Join in on a community fire or reserve your own by calling our program department today.
