The Ranch

A Private Northern Colorado Event Facility

With its roots as a working dude ranch tracing back to the 1950s, Sky Corral Ranch has been a staple of Rist Canyon for more than half a century. With the help of the Northern Colorado community, it’s now a nonprofit facility serving youth groups, organizations and corporations as an easily accessible wilderness facility.

The transformation to a nonprofit agency began with a gift of the land by the Ward family to the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado, and the support of the Enander family to provide funding for the project. Now a standalone organization thanks to the generosity and hard work of many in the community, it stands ready to host your next event.
