For the second year in a row, we’re welcoming the Ladies AllRide Mountain Bike Retreat to Flathead Lake Lodge. Slated for October 3 – 7, 2022, this women’s-only retreat combines the best of both riding worlds – horseback trail rides and mountain biking – on our 2,000 acres. A five-day, four-night retreat, it’s designed to give attendees professional mountain bike skills instruction and plenty of time to hit the ranch’s miles of expertly-designed trails.

Wondering what to expect? Here’s a peek at the retreat.

Off the bikes, guests can participate in other activities offered at the ranch, including morning yoga, guided hikes, beach campfires, kayaking on Flathead Lake and tours of our on-ranch elk preserve. Chef Rob also makes sure to serve up plenty of made-from-scratch meals to keep attendees fueled and satisfied, while also give them opportunities to taste the many flavors of local Montana purveyors.

All guests stay on the ranch in Flathead Lake Lodge’s accommodations, including lodge rooms and cabins.

See you on the trails,


While horseback trail rides have been a part of the ranch for the last 75 years, this year we’re offering a new way to ride — a Ladies AllRide Mountain Bike Retreat.

With 10 miles of mountain biking trails (and an additional 4+ miles that will be ready for this fall’s retreat) that weave their way through our 2,000 acres, attendees will have the chance to focus on mountain bike skills work and riding, complemented by guest ranch activities. This fall retreat takes place September 17 – 20, 2021, is created with ladies in mind and is open to adults over the age of 18 of all levels, from novice to experienced.

Here’s what sets it apart from other mountain biking clinics:

-The retreat is all-inclusive, with meals, lodging, recreation, tax and gratuity included (it’s also the only one that includes lodging)

-Attendees will experience a mix of mountain biking and guest ranch activities, like morning yoga on our platform overlooking Flathead Lake, boat cruises, campfires at the beach, tours of the elk preserve, horseback trail rides and one of our most-loved events, the mountain meadow steak fry

-You’ll be riding on our private trails during one of the most beautiful times of year in Montana, complete with stunning fall foliage, sun-soaked days and crisp evenings

If you’ve been looking to start your journey into mountain biking or if you’d like to hone skills like body positioning, technical climbing and descending, bunny hops and pump tracks, we invite you to learn more about the Ladies AllRide Retreat or call us at 406-837-4391.

Happy shredding,


Last year, for the first time, we launched adults-only packages. And this year, we’re excited to be offering two distinct packages for our 2020 season. Meet Grit Clinic and the Montana Adventure in the Crown of the Continent.

Grit Clinic: May 22 – 25

The Grit Clinic is a mountain bike skill clinic that includes hands-on coaches that provide fun and inspiring clinics to help attendees share in the joy of mountain biking, while also developing skills. Held over Memorial Day (May 22 – 25), the Grit Clinic at Flathead Lake Lodge will utilize the ranch’s onsite mountain biking trails, as well as enjoy on-ranch activities like horseback trail rides, hiking, fishing, kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding on Flathead Lake. Round out each day with a made-from-scratch meal served family-style in the Main Lodge.
