In the wintertime, our resort is transformed by the winter white, mountain snow. Gather your family and friends for a real treat on a scenic horse-drawn sleigh ride through the winter wonderland of the snow-covered Kaibab National Forest! Await your handsome team of Percheron draft horses as you cozy up next to the campfire, while sipping on hot cocoa for the kids or hot toddies for the adults. If romance is what you desire, you can enjoy a bottle of wine or champagne on your ride as you cuddle up under the warm wool blankets and glide through the snow covered pines with horses trotting and sleigh bells jingling. We ask that you please dress warmly with gloves, hat and a warm jacket.
Sleigh Rides begin as early as November 20th, weather permitting, based on snow conditions. There is no guarantee that snow conditions will be suitable for a sleigh.
Sleighs depart from the main entrance of the hotel starting at 10:00am-noon on the hour, and nightly 5:00pm-8:00pm on the hour, Thursday-Monday. After your sleigh ride, relax and cozy up by the fire before you dine on inspired-by-nature cuisine at The Ranch Bar & Grill. Prepared by our award-winning chef, our team takes great pride in preparing each entree to order using local and organic food sources whenever possible. Dinner Rides $93.00 Adults and $69.00 Youth (3-11).
