What is a Dude Ranch?
Years ago a “dude” was a person that lived typically in an urban area.
Countryside dwellers used to refer to dudes as city slickers.
A ranch that gives city slickers a unique experience away from the hectic city life where they can experience the great outdoors was called a Dude Ranch.
Today The Pine Ridge Dude Ranch prides itself in much more than that.
They want to give everyone (groups and families) a fun one-of-a-kind vacation getaway that they have never experienced before,
Today the word dude is slang for American people to address each other similar to the words “guy” and “bro”.
Choose from a variety of rooms according to the size of your group and budget.
