We spent the last week playing in the wintery wonderland of Montana’s Paws Up! The Resort is part of a working cattle ranch and you feel the authenticity from the minute you arrive. We attended the Ranch’s 2nd annual Winterfest featuring Top Chef Brooke Williamson and so many other all-star chefs all set against the backdrop of a snowy wintery wonderland.
When you arrive at Paws Up get ready to EAT! Some of our breakfast favorites were the Huckleberry Pancakes, Biscuits and Gravy and their unbelievably flavourful Bacon! The Ranch really does have some of the best food we have ever experienced! AND we completley fell in love with the staff! They welcomed us for every meal with a big smile and made us just like family.
We stayed in one of the amazing Wilderness Estates at the back of the property! These 3 bedroom homes are huge and are the perfect place for a family or a group of friends traveling together! They feel totally cozy and exactly what you want to come home to after after a long day of winter sports!
We spent most of our late afternoons by the fire, catching up on work, and heating up with some hot chocolate!
Or soaking in the hot tub in our snow covered backyard!
Winter time at The Resort at Paws up looks a little different then their Summertime program. Instead of Trout Fishing and White Water Rafting – we were Dog Sledding and Snowmobiling through their 37,000 acre property! For those of you looking for a White Christmas this could be the perfect place for you and your family to spend the holidays this year.
Oh and they had an Ice Skating rink, which we totally took advantage of! At night the boys would play ice hockey as we all gathered around the bonfire! One of the nights they even brought in a professional Curling Team! It was really cool to watch the Olympic sport in person for the first time!
We spent an afternoon at their amazing shooting range (it’s even bigger and better in the Summertime, we can’t wait to come back and try it)! The guys that took us out there were so knowledgable and made it really fun!
One of the evenings they set up a sleigh ride for us before dinner!
If you have never seen Montana in the summer time…Paws Up has Luxury Glamping Tents (2 and 3 bedroom tents) set up by the Blackfoot River and over 65 summer activities to choose from! If Paws Up is on your bucket list reach out to us and let’s talk about creating your perfect trip.
