Possessing all the amenities highly sought after in today’s market, properties like Snowy Range Ranch rarely come up for auction. The ranch features four homes, including a manager’s home and an owner’s estate, a world class horse breeding facility, two hangars, a 2,200 ft. landing strip, a concrete helicopter pad, updated barns, corrals, shipping facilities and a number of other operational buildings. The trout fishing on the streams that meander through the property is excellent, and a large elk, deer, and antelope population of more than 800 head roams the ranch. Wildlife residents of the ranch also include red-tail fox, bald eagle, turkeys, and moose.
“Snowy Range Ranch follows the eastern slope of the Snowy Range at elevations up to 9,100 feet for five miles through heavy timber, creek bottoms, rocky ridge lines, and across upland pastures dotted with sage, pine, aspen and cottonwoods,” said listing broker James Rinehart of Western United Realty. “The ranch provides excellent grazing and winter feed along with abundant water for easy ranch management.”
The horse breeding facility includes 20 indoor stalls with outdoor runs adjacent to a 48,000 sq. feet indoor arena. This offers an ideal setting for training and working horses. The climate controlled arena is large enough for quality roping, reining, and barrel racing and ranch rodeos. Outdoor paddocks with shelters and a storage building for feed and shavings are additional amenities.
Steeped in western history, this unique hideaway offers complete solitude and privacy, but remains an easy 30 minute drive from Laramie. The setting offers an exceptional combination of convenience and unparalleled seclusion amid spectacular vistas.
“The profitability of Snowy Range Ranch as a working ranch coupled with the equine facilities and allure of its recreational amenities truly makes it one of the finest properties available in America today,” said head of Hall and Hall Auctions Scott Shuman. “Not only is Snowy Range Ranch an amazingly productive ranch for year-round cattle and equine operations, it also yields an average of 2 tons of hay per acre on 700+ acres and it has an additional 4,800± acres of adjudicated water rights for irrigated and sub-irrigated pastures.”
