If you’re looking for a gorgeous fall getaway with endless outdoor adventure, The Resort at Paws Up has three upcoming events that you won’t want to miss. Channel your inner cowboy at their first-ever authentic Cowboy Experience (just a few weeks away), experience nighttime paintball as you get lost in the woods for Halloween or simply relax, fly-fish and get your horseback riding in at The Resort’s First Thanksgiving celebration.
Cowboy Experience: October 20–23
Do you know what happens when you combine real cowboys, rodeo stars, Montana scenery, chic rustic accommodations and gourmet food and fine wine? We do. For the first time, the ProRodeo Hall of Fame presents Cowboy Experience at The Resort at Paws Up.
Your three-day adventure begins and ends with four legendary cowboys honored by the ProRodeo Hall of Fame, including Paul Tierney, Larry Mahan, Monty “Hawkeye” Hens and Bud Munroe. These inspiring men will immerse you in the ways of the West with educational workshops, demonstrations, trail rides, sporting clay shooting and campfire stories under Montana’s starry Big Sky. You will share in the cowboy spirit and its way of life—and have an incredible time doing it.
The ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy exists to educate about rodeo, its history and its impact on Western American culture. The Resort’s goal is to share the cowboy lifestyle while learning from cowboy legends. Also enjoy horseback riding, cattle drives, fly-fishing, hiking, spa treatments, ATV rides, rifle range and more.
Halloween Ranch-Style: October 28–30
This month, the Blackfoot River Valley is more exciting and spellbinding than ever. That’s because, for the very first time, Paws Up will host a celebration for outlaws, ghosts, goblins and, of course, witches. Hunt down zombies with paintball guns, hike through haunted forests, sit down to spooky yet sumptuous outlaws-and-bandits dinners and disguise yourself for the ultimate costume showdown. You won’t be able to escape craft brews, s’mores or live music, and you may even see a witch on an ATV or a headless horseman while you’re there.
Paws Up First Thanksgiving: November 23–27
It’s the First Thanksgiving celebration at Paws Up, so they’re planning generous portions of fun activities and excursions, from a petting zoo with pony rides and family game nights to owl watching, hayrides and concerts—plus football, parade watching and, of course, horseback riding any time of day. They’ll be serving more than just turkey, too—bison tenderloin with cherry demi-glace and crab-stuffed rainbow trout are just a few of the main dish options. You can count on every last bite to be delicious. Giving thanks will surely come easily at The Resort’s ultimate Thanksgiving getaway, which was recently named one of the “Best Family Destinations” by USA Today 10 Best.
