Welcome to the Mountain Sky Family…

Since we opened as a dude ranch in 1929, Mountain Sky Guest Ranch has topped the list of the nation’s upscale guest ranch resorts, and there is no big secret to our success. While there’s no doubt you’ll admire the breathtaking views, fine food, amenities and luxury environment, it’s our staff who make the difference. When you arrive at the ranch, you become a member of the Mountain Sky family.

We want you to experience not only superior service, but a warm and friendly staff truly dedicated to sharing this beautiful Montana land with you and your family. We are a group of people who care for each other and come together to share friendships and experiences with our guests from around the world. Here is a small taste of what you can expect in a typical day on the ranch:


Sip on a hot cup of coffee accompanied by one of Pam’s fresh baked muffins, gaze at a dramatic Montana sunrise, enjoy a crisp morning hike, energize your body with a yoga session, or watch the wranglers herd the horses down the mountainside. After a bountiful breakfast buffet, ride on horseback through acres of flower-filled meadows or stroll along beautiful Big Creek.


The afternoon could be adventuresome, hiking miles of trails, rafting down the Yellowstone River, exploring the wonders of Yellowstone Park, or trying your hand at mountain stream fishing. Wrap up your afternoon activities with a restorative yoga session. For a more relaxing day, soak up the sunshine and view of Emigrant Peak by the pool, or take time for a soothing massage.


Enjoy a dinner ride barbecue cooked over the grill at the lower ranch pavilion, or savor a delicious gourmet dinner that offers the finest in continental cuisine. Learn Western dances with the wranglers, or sing your favorite western songs on a hayride or around the campfire. Top off the evening with a nightcap in the cozy lounge, curl up with a good book next to a stone fireplace, experience the tranquility of the night sounds of the outdoors, or unwind with a late-night soak in the hot tub.

What about the kids?

From morning until bedtime, your children are free to roam. For the little ones, and any who choose to participate, our staff has a variety of activities planned to entertain and delight children of all ages – horseback rides, games in our heated swimming pool, fishing in the ranch pond, participating in arts and crafts, taking nature walks, and many more crazy and wild antics cooked up by our creative staff. Our well-trained counselors supervise your children’s activities so you are free to enjoy yours.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family here at Mountain Sky. Once you experience the best dude ranch vacation Montana has to offer, we think you will agree – Mountain Sky will revive your soul, rejuvenate your spirit and provide an environment where you can discover what it means to truly reconnect with your family.
