“Hudson!” his mom called across the dining room in the direction her four-year-old had vanished. “Eh… he’s safe here.” She slid another cookie off the plate and turned back to the conversation at hand, but not before I cracked a smile. The family has been coming to Latigo for years, and the two boys have been running around the lodge like they own it. In fact, to those boys, Latigo is synonymous with Colorado, and it feels like a second home to them.
- Kids are free.
During our summer season, infants and children under two-years-old are completely free under the Latigo rates, while 3-5-year-olds and 6-13-year-olds are also in discounted brackets. During the winter ski season, kids under 5 are free, while 6-13 get the discount.
- Kids deserve freedom.
We want our guests to experience life in the mountains with unfettered joy. We don’t tell you to keep off the grass, and whether it’s the square dance on Thursday or the Cowboy Skills on Monday—kids at Latigo get to live their lives differently from anywhere else.
- Parents can be as involved as they want to be.
Family dinner, family ride, family campout – all possible at Latigo! If, however, your kids become fast friends with the other guests at the ranch that week and choose to run off with their kid’s counselor the second they’ve swallowed the last bite of dinner, then they are free to do so. Safely, too.
- Experiences like nowhere else.
From food to archery, tomahawks to bullwhips, horses to cattle-drives – Dad, Mom, Jr., and Sissy all get to try something new, laugh at each other, and have fun together. Which brings me to my final reason.
- Families leave Latigo stronger.
I could give you fifteen different reasons for this, a dozen good examples, and several compelling first-person accounts. For all I know, it might be in the air or in the water, but it’s the truth. The parents watching the kids have so much fun, husband and wife seeing each other ride through the wilderness, bonding over shared experiences and mutual joys all compound in strengthening the family bonds.
Confidence grows over the course of an adventure, and everything that was once familiar is put in a new light when we travel. Latigo is family-friendly because the owners and staff are family-friendly, and we are invested in making sure you have a great vacation.
