Cowgirl up!

The Bar W is offering an all inclusive package for women to “Cowgirl Up” with their best friends, sisters and daughters (ages 18 and up) to enjoy the camaraderie as the “girls” take over the Ranch. This package combines the splendor of nature with western hospitality to offer a true Montana retreat to renew and refresh.

Explore Montana’s spectacular scenery by horseback. Relax, have fun, and let your stress evaporate into the fresh mountain air. Explore the mountainous terrain surrounding the Ranch and open meadows of Swisher Lake. Guests can saddle up and enjoy thousands of acres of Montana wilderness on horseback or enjoy arena activities including barrel racing, cow sorting, or horsemanship lessons. Just when you think life doesn’t get any better, you’ll kick off your shoes for an afternoon at the spa. After a full day of riding, fishing, or hiking, wind down and enjoy a private vintner’s presentation and a hearty, Montana style meal.

Ladies also have the option to saddle up for a western tradition, a full day cattle drive.  This once in a lifetime experience takes place East of the ranch on the open range.  Round up and push cattle while soaking in panoramic views of a mountain backdrop.  You’ll think you are in a postcard!

This special package combines nature’s simplicity with western informality and provides you with a true Montana retreat to refuel your spirit. The perfect week-long adventure for solo travelers, small groups, or close friends. It’s your week, ladies.
