Applications can be completed a maximum of one semester in advance (i.e., on the first day of Fall Semester, you can apply for a date in Winter Semester). The lodge is available for reservation from September through the first weekend of June.
Lodge Reservations Guidelines
- Reservation requests must be made by submitting a completed Lodge Application. Please note you may list 2 separate dates of when you wish to attend.
- Reservation requests received through the first full week of the semester will be gathered and noted when they were received. If multiple requests for a particular weekend are received, we will work to accommodate as many groups as possible. We understand the first 4 weeks of the semester are in the highest demand. When making reservation assignments for these weeks, we will look at when the request was made and when the specific group was accommodated last. Our goal is to allow as many groups the opportunity throughout the calendar year as possible.
- You will receive an email confirmation with your request once you have officially been scheduled on the Lodge Calendar.

Grand Bunkhouse: This bunkhouse is located between the Sky Mountain Lodge and the Homestead Cabin. The central room is large enough to train 20 participants. There is a kitchenette with a sink and running water and small refrigerator. There is not a stove or oven in this building. This building is primarily used for sleeping quarters when large groups come to Sky Mountain Lodge. There are 22 mattresses for sleeping in the central room or two side rooms with doors. Some bunk beds are provided. Groups can walk to the Grand Bunkhouse on a trail from the Sky Mountain Lodge (except during the winter) or drive to it by traveling on the road ¼ of a mile west of the ranch entrance.
Middle & Arena Bunkhouses: These two bunkhouses are slightly smaller than the Grand Bunkhouse but very similar in design. They are used for sleeping quarters or small group breakout sessions. Both Bunkhouses have 20 foam pads. The roads leading to the Middle and Arena Bunkhouses are not plowed in the winter.
