Bar W Ranch is nestled at the base of Spencer Mountain at Spencer Lake in Whitefish, between two pine covered ridges surrounded by 2,900 acres of state land, near the gateway to Glacier National Park and is open all year round.
The riding is exceptional, covering the mountainous terrain surrounding the ranch, the foothill country of the Rocky Mountain Front Range and the wide open prairie of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. Riders can enjoy lessons and all day rides with faster riding in the foothills, team penning, sorting, branding and roping lessons.
The ranch caters for children, trail riding age limit is 7yrs old and under 7's can take pony rides in the arena. The ranch provides a counselor who will take them swimming, fishing and trips to Big Mountain Ski and Summer Resort.
Bar W ranch also organises adult only weeks, women only weeks and 2 cattle drives a year (May and September).
