* Please note activities are subject to change.
CAMPFIRE & BRANDING
The perfect way to finish the week: a campfire, smores and the opportunity to get your leather items branded with the Bar W brand. The amazing friendships that have been made during the week are on display, with everyone sitting around chatting and laughing and simply enjoying each other’s company before they part ways the following day.
Live out your Footloose fantasies with an evening of line dancing and cocktails. Our fabulous instructor knows all the best dances to get you on your feet, and the huckleberry cocktails help as well! Always a fun evening with staff and guests alike, it is definitely an activity to look forward to.
BIRDS OF PREY
Experience some amazing, rehabilitated birds of prey up close and personal that the wonderful people from Wild Wings Recovery Center bring to the ranch. Hawks, owls, and falcons are some of the incredible birds on display at this activity, that are guaranteed to impress all guests.
A fun evening for everyone, not just whiskey lovers, as we combine whiskey with an entertaining game of Jeopardy to test your Western knowledge. With a variety of whiskeys, there is something for everyone to enjoy!
Always a highlight of the week, guests are brought by shuttle to Brash Rodeo in Columbia Falls, only 15 minutes from the ranch. You are able to see the best competitors in the area barrel racing, roping and bull riding to name just a few events. Each week we have staff members and even some guests compete in the rodeo so there is that added personal touch of having someone you know to cheer for. Memories are certainly made on rodeo nights.
COWBOY SINGING & CAMPFIRE
The best way to start the week is with a campfire, smores, and good ol’ fashioned sing-along songs. Venture up the mountain to the breathtaking views of Spencer Ridge, right on-site at Bar W. The Bar W crew will shuttle guests up to the top. There are plenty of benches, tables and seating that surround the campfire pit. We’ll pass around the smores, then sing and laugh the night away with unimaginable Big Sky views of Montana.
VOLLEYBALL, KICKBALL, ARROW TAG
Bring the fun and your competitive edge to the playing field at the ranch. During the week, Bar W staff will host different games after dinner – whether it be volleyball, kickball, or arrow tag. Join in on the excitement and comradery as guests and staff go head-to-head. All ages are invited to play!
