Fondue Night at the Ranch

Are you planning to do something extraordinary with your partner or your friends? If you do, we have something special for you here at Silver Spur Trails, a culinary ranch experience with a difference. Fondue is an informal style of dining that is excellent for a romantic, candlelit dinner or small party with a group of friends.

Our Fondue night will turn your business gathering, birthday party or any other special occasion into a memorable experience. No matter how old you are, there is something fun about cooking your own meal over a communal bowl.

Fondue is a Swiss dish shared at the table in an earth ware pot over a small burner and it most likely originated in the Jura mountains. For our meat fondue long special forks are used to dip the pieces of meat into a hot and tasty broth. Various sauces are provided on the side. The earliest published mentions of this dish seem to have been made in the mid 1950s.

The Fondue night is suitable for groups up to 10. For the Fondue over-night package we can accommodate eight guests comfortably. Please check out our great group rates and contact us for more details.

Fondue Night, the Swiss way

Weekend Horse Adventure

 

What a great way to spend a weekend away from home! Experience an ultimate wilderness adventure and be a cowboy or cowgirl for two days.

Friday late afternoon arrival. Before dinner you will have time to settle into your rustic room, and check out the ranch and the horses. After the barbeque dinner sit around the bonfire and enjoy the fresh country air.

Start the next day with a hardy ranch breakfast. After breakfast followsan introduction to horses and back country riding. A brief evaluation and assignment of horses is followed by a short riding instruction in the paddock. This gives you a chance to bond with your horse before heading out on the trails.

Late morning we ride the forest trail leading up the mountain. It takes us into the back country wilderness with a good chance of encountering Canadian wildlife. It is not uncommon to see coyote, deer, bear, bald headed eagle, and grouse.The trail takes us to a lookout point with a stunning view overlooking the valley, where we stop for a picnic lunch and give the horses a rest.

In the afternoon we head back to the ranch where you can take off your dusty boots and hat and relax, refresh and rejuvenate after the days adventure.

Sunday start again with a ranch breakfast before saddling up the horses. We head out for a morning ride on some rugged trails that lead us to beautiful lookouts above the ranch. We return to the ranch for lunch and departure is Sunday afternoon.
