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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more details on this option.
