Home on the Ranch

A stay at Devil’s Thumb Ranch offers a very different ski vacation—along with a chance to unplug.

Après-ski at Devil’s Thumb Ranch isn’t your typical drinks-at-the-bar-soak-in-the-hot-tub-head-out-to-dinner type of experience. Rather, after a long day pounding the moguls at Mary Jane, hunker down for a mean game of Clue, glass of pinot in hand, slippers on your feet. Fold into an overstuffed leather couch in the airy, mountain-rustic loft that overlooks Heck’s Tavern—so named for the hexagonal stone hearth that rises three stories to the ceiling’s pine beams.

Sales plummeted.
