Work hard and play harder!

The right candidate for this position is passionate about people, eager to learn and work hard, and not afraid of getting dirty! We are a great place to learn the ins and outs of guest ranching and be a part of a neat community.

This position can be physically demanding in both summer and winter weather as duties include snow removal, landscaping and groundskeeping, pool and hot tub care, vehicle care, helping guests with luggage, and other daily and seasonal tasks. Ranch Hands must be available from 5/16-10/31, and be at least 21 years of age in order to operate ranch vehicles.

On-site housing is included with healthy meals and access to facilities provided at a nominal daily rate of $12! Our compensation package consists of a base hourly wage between$13.50 -$15.00and an equitable share of the weekly tip pool. Because we believe every staff member contributes equally to the overall guest experience, the tip share for all staff members is also equal. Workweeks are around 40 hours (5 days on, 2 days off), any hours over 40 will be at an hourly rate ($) of time and a half.

Vista Verde Ranch is in a remote area 25 miles north of Steamboat Springs, nestled on the western slope of the Continental Divide with access to freestone rivers, alpine lakes, hundreds of acres of trails, and tons of adventure.

Our guests are offered an all-inclusive ranch vacation that includes horseback riding, cattle working, hiking, archery, mountain biking, fly fishing, paddle boarding, yoga, plus much more during the summer months. We offer a similarly full program in the winter that includes miles of groomed and backcountry cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
