The Ranch Launches in Vail This Autumn
AWARD-WINNING FITNESS AND WELLNESS RETREAT HOSTS NEW PROGRAMME
AT THE RITZ-CARLTON, BACHELOR GULCH FOR A LIMITED TIME IN SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER, 2023
The Ranch, the renowned luxury health and wellness brand featuring award-winning, transformational structured wellness retreats is thrilled to introduce a pop-up programme in Vail, Colorado this autumn. Amidst the majestic mountains, in a secluded enclave of the Vail Valley, The Ranch Vail will feature The Ranch’s signature fitness and nutrition programme and will be exclusively offered at The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch from September 3rd – October 27th, 2023.
Limited to just 25 guests each week, this 5-night, 6-day (Sunday – Friday) experience features a structured daily schedule that mirrors The Ranch’s signature offering in the natural splendour of Colorado’s famed peaks. In this extraordinary mountain environment, guests participate together in a results-oriented programme that features a daily schedule of 4-hour morning mountain hikes, nap time, afternoon strength and core training classes, restorative yoga and a daily massage. To complement the active schedule, Jasper Schneider, Executive Chef at The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch will collaborate with The Ranch Malibu’s Executive Chef, Meredith Haaz, to develop a nutrient-dense, plant-based seasonal menu featuring locally sourced organic fare.
“We are thrilled to bring The Ranch’s transformational wellness programme to Colorado this Fall! Our guests continue to ask for new destinations to experience our life-changing programme and hiking in this charming mountain town at this time of year is truly spectacular,” says Alex Glasscock, Founder and CEO of The Ranch. “Working with a property as breathtaking as The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch is an honour. Their five-star service and dedication to guests aligns with our company’s values and mission, making it the perfect home for our programme.”
Nestled in the heart of the Vail Valley, The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch offers the perfect setting for a nature-inspired, Rocky Mountain escape. In late 2022, in celebration of its 20th anniversary, it went through an extensive renovation and refurbishment of all guest rooms, suites and common areas for an elevated guest experience. In The Ranch programme, guests stay in private accommodations featuring spacious rooms with special touches such as separate tubs and showers, detailed millwork, Egyptian cotton Frette linens and breathtaking mountain or valley views. To maintain an intimate setting, Ranch guests enjoy fitness classes, yoga and meals in private spaces. The idyllic location also allows access to hundreds of miles of spectacular trails in the Bachelor Gulch area, Beaver Creek and the White River National Forest, just steps from the property or a short drive away.
“We are delighted to be working with The Ranch as a backdrop for their renowned wellness programme," says Dan Dickhart, General Manager of The Ritz Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. “Our mountain resort is the perfect location to immerse guests in nature, offering countless outdoor activities alongside best-in-class service and luxurious, newly renovated accommodations.”
During their stay, guests will also have the opportunity to relax in the resort’s 21,000 square foot spa complete with relaxation lounges, steam rooms, dry saunas, hot and cold plunge pools and a stone-lined coed grotto. Outdoors, guests can calm their minds in the natural surroundings or in one of the property’s 3 Jacuzzis or large heated pool.
The Ranch Vail is offered at a starting rate of $6,600 USD per person for double occupancy and $7,800 USD for a single room and includes 5 nights and 6 days (Sunday-Friday) of daily guided hikes, fitness and exercise classes, daily massage, spa access and preferred rates on additional treatments, private accommodations, $100 laundry credit, all meals and some evening elective nutrition talks and airport transfers to and from Vail - Eagle Valley Airport on Sunday early afternoon and Friday morning. Upgrades to a one-bedroom suite are offered at $7,800 for a double occupancy and $9,500 for a single room based on availability.
