It’s no secret, Marabou (A Colorado Ranch Preservation Community) is known for it’s beautiful homes, rolling landscapes, cowboy atmosphere, world class fly fishing, and spectacular guide services. Part of what makes Marabou so unique is the Country Club exclusiveness, but with a down home feel.  Every amenity is available to a property owner without ever having to build a home.

Every day, we watch families, couples, and friends make memories here. They head out together for a horseback ride, a mountain bike adventure, or head into town to ski fresh powder. They gather around our tables in one of the six charming, luxuriously appointed cabins available for ranch property owners and their guests, for holiday meals and celebrations.

There are few places more beautiful than Marabou Ranch to get in a great workout — whether that’s the River’s Edge Pool and The River’s Edge Fitness Center (a gym literally fit for olympians), or a brisk mountain bike on the miles of available single track. We want members to feel great about themselves, and our professional guides stand ready to help them achieve their fitness goals.

What would a stay in Steamboat Springs, “Ski Town USA®”, be without the famed Champagne Powder® adventures? Join one of our three fantastic snow sport training guides for an adventure packed day on the mountain.  If you’re looking for a fast trip down the hill, may we introduce: Caroline Lalive. She has competed in three Olympic Games and reached six world-cup podiums since her US Ski Team debut in 1996. Perhaps we can suggest, Nelson Carmichael, who has an intimate knowledge of this Colorado mountain community terrain. This two-time Olympic team member and Bronze medalist for Mogul skiing will be your master guide from mountain top to base. We haven’t left out the snowboarders, join Olympian Erin Simmons- a three-time silver medalist in the Winter X-Games, and is ranked as one of the top 10 snowboarders in the world. Whoever you pick, you’re sure to learn a lot, and have even more fun. Want first tracks? The Marabou Mountain Camp, located at the Steamboat Ski Area’s base gondola, is the place to gear up for a day on the slopes and unwind with some hot chocolate (whiskey optional) after the lifts close. Snow not your thing? The Mountain Camp is open to owners and their guests year-round. Who says you can’t aprés hike?

Marabou is a welcoming place, where you’re encouraged to know and be known, to sing your loudest around a campfire, dine until your heart’s content, ride horses until you’re sore, or spend an entire day relaxing in the Downstream Spa.  We won’t rein you in, the entire ranch is yours to explore. Limited only by the number of hours in a day, our many amenities will keep you entertained from sunup to sundown. Enjoy a new twist on the Country Club!
