The Ranch Vail

An exclusive and special opportunity to reset your health in a breathtaking alpine setting this Fall.

Exclusively offered September 3rd - October 27th!


The Ranch’s award-winning, transformational structured wellness program comes to Colorado for a limited time this Fall! Exclusively offered from September 3rd – October 27th, 2023, The Ranch Vail is a 5-night, 6-day (Sunday – Friday) experience that will immerse just 25 guests each week in the natural splendor of Vail, Colorado.  With unlimited opportunities to explore the famed peaks of this extraordinary setting, guests will follow The Ranch’s results-oriented, thoughtfully structured fitness and wellness program and nutritionally-dense, plant-based diet, to achieve measurable mental and physical results.

Explore New Trails while Connecting with Fellow Guests

Staying at The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch, one of North America’s premier mountain resorts, guests spend their mornings under the guidance of our experienced and fun Ranch team along with highly skilled local guides to hike a varied trail each day.  Just steps from the property or a short drive away, our location allows access to hundreds of miles of spectacular trails in the Vail Valley, including the Bachelor Gulch area, Beaver Creek and the White River National Forest.  As in our other programs, we hike for time rather than distance and all guests go at their own pace choosing between a 2 or 4 hour morning hike.

Gaining anywhere from 1,000 – 3,000 feet on average, and scaling elevations up to 11,500 feet, guests hike through forested canopies, emerald green and wildflower-filled meadows and alongside mountain streams and waterfalls as they take in the stunning landscape of the Rocky Mountains and enchanting valleys below.  As the season changes in late September, expect to be enveloped in a brilliant display of golden yellows, vibrant oranges and bursts of red.

Active & Restorative Afternoons

Following lunch, guests enjoy a well-deserved naptime before fitness programming begins, which includes both strength training and restorative yoga, along with a daily massage.  Guests will also have the opportunity to relax in resort’s 21,000-square-foot spa.

To complement the dynamic daily schedule, Jasper Schneider, Executive Chef at The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch will collaborate with The Ranch Malibu’s Executive Chef, Meredith Haaz, to develop a plant-based, seasonal menu featuring locally sourced organic fare highlighting the flavors of Summer and Fall.

For those guests interested in our Malibu and Italy programs this Fall, be assured that both will remain open while members of The Ranch team go to Colorado.

Special rates are also available for any local residents interested in joining The Ranch Vail while staying in their homes.  You can learn more here or contact for more details on this option.


The Results

Upon completion, guests feel rested, rejuvenated and proud of their accomplishments.
They gain muscle, mental clarity and a greater sense of self while losing unwanted fat, inches and weight.


During their stay guests log around 50 miles of hiking as they connect with fellow guests and nourish their bodies with a thoughtful menu of plant-based cuisine. Our structured schedule allows for a decision-free experience while our nurturing staff is there to support guests throughout the week. Lasting nutritional and fitness guidance from The Ranch experts will continue after departure to ensure guests sustain the benefits of their stay.



The perfect setting for a nature-inspired, Rocky Mountain escape in the heart of the Vail Valley

Designed in a modern, mountain lodge aesthetic to reflect the surrounding environment, The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch provides a calming respite during your stay. In late 2022, in celebration of its 20th anniversary, the property went through an extensive renovation and refurbishment of all guest rooms, suites and common areas for an elevated guest experience.

The luxurious property and five-star service mirror what is offered in Malibu and Italy, as guests stay in private accommodations featuring spacious rooms with one king or two queen beds with special touches such as separate tubs and showers, detailed millwork, wood accents, Egyptian cotton Frette linens and breathtaking mountain or valley views.

To maintain an intimate setting, our guests will enjoy fitness classes, yoga and meals in private spaces. They will also have the opportunity to relax in the resort’s 21,000-square-foot spa, complete with relaxation lounges, steam rooms, dry saunas, hot and cold plunge pools and a stone-lined coed grotto.  Outdoors, guests are able to unplug in the natural surroundings or in one of the property’s 3 Jacuzzis or large heated pool. There is also an oxygen bar onsite and our team will have individual oxygen cans upon arrival to help guests adapt to the elevation more quickly.

We are also excited to offer an option for local residents in and around the area to join our program at a special rate that excludes accommodations.  For more information on this option, please contact
