About The Lodge & Spa at Three Forks Ranch

Three Forks Ranch presents a very unique experience for prospective employees to participate in the daily operations of a luxury guest destination and a working cattle ranch, in a beautiful and remote setting.

We are unique in that while the ranch sits on over 200,000 acres in CO and WY, our lodge only accommodates 54 guests at a time. This allows for each employee to truly interact with guests and all members of staff on a daily basis, making each person's role one that intimately impacts each guest's stay.

In the fall we big game hunt for elk, mule deer, and pronghorn antelope, thus doubling in occupancy but not in staff. The fall is a very busy time for us at Three Forks Ranch as we continue to operate out of the main lodge as well as in four guest cabins spread throughout the property.

The Employee Experience

Because of our remote location, we all work, live and play together. This creates a "family feel" where we live communally, all look out for one another and learn to respect different personalities and lifestyles. 

We are situated only minutes from national forest and awesome mountain towns. These places provide endless outdoor fun and opportunities to anyone living here. Whether you like to fly fish, snowshoe, or ski, among other activities, it's all at your fingertips if you have the initiative to capitalize on down time from work.

Ideal Candidate

Our ideal candidate is professional, out-going, enthusiastic and loves the outdoors. He or she must have a "whatever it takes" attitude and be willing to join a team that provides only the highest level of guest service and attention to detail.

Room and Board

Housing, all meals and utilities are provided for all employees at minimal cost. Individuals may share a house/bedroom/bathroom or may have their own room but all housing is provided on the property to make for a quick commute to work.

Employee Perks

Throughout the summer season, we love to show our staff the 50,000 acres that our guests recreate on by taking them out on a ranch tour via our Polaris Razors and Rangers. It really gives you a great feel for what beauty surrounds us every day!

As a reward for working hard, and going above and beyond, we send you out with one of our experienced guides to do something you love or have always wanted to try such as cross-country skiing, enjoying our tubing hill, or trying your hand at ice fishing.

We have a state-of-the-art staff gym that is open 24/7. It includes Peloton Bikes, NordicTrack Treadmills, row machines, and much more.

There are employee rates for all of our items in the gift shop, spa services, and wellness/fitness classes. 

Getting Here and Getting Around

A 4WD is recommended as we are located on a dirt road but any reliable vehicle will work. Employees must have a vehicle. Access the ranch via Steamboat Springs, CO or Craig, CO.

If not driving a 4WD vehicle, chains are recommended for your tires during the snowy months.

For Fun

For our guests, we offer: fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling---any outdoor recreation you can think of, we've got it!!  

For employees, there is access to hundreds of acres in the National Forest where you can do all of these activities as well or drive into Clark or Steamboat Springs and access all that those towns have to offer.
