Dear Visitor and Guest,
The Hideout has always been a clean, organized, and safe guest ranch to visit. Our standards of clean are and always have been high. During the 2020 season with Covid-19 present in the world, we stepped up our efforts to keep things as clean, organized and as safe as possible impacting your guest experience as little as possible.
We learned during our 2020 Season, limiting exposure at the ranch is a joint effort between the entire Hideout team and all our guests. We will continue to operate under these stricter guidelines to minimize exposure to guests, staff and others coming to the ranch. In this we make all reasonable efforts to follow CDC, State and a local health guideline, which includes wearing masks, keeping social distance and washing hands. With these health and safety guidelines, the way we operate might sometimes be different than usual. Some activities might be limited, changed or not available. We invite you to visit our Guest Ranch Activities Section on our website for more detailed information.
All guests will also need to rent a vehicle if flying into Billings or Cody or drive to the ranch in their own vehicles. You will need a personal vehicle to follow our trucks and trailers to the trailheads.
We will communicate to all our arriving guests about what to expect, what we are doing, and what additional items they should bring like face masks, hand sanitizer or other items to help protect everyone at the ranch.
As a location open to guests in 2021, the activities, recreation, and hospitality we offer carry a risk of exposure to COVID-19. While we are trying to minimize this risk, the scope and duration of this horrible situation is not known and is an inherent risk. This means The Hideout cannot eliminate all risks associated with COVID-19.
We will also let our guest know what we expect of them to reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and we urge those guests who have been vaccinated or who may be immune to Covid-19 respect above guidance, other guests and our crew at The Hideout. While we see the benefits of vaccination, none of the existing vaccines assures 100% protection against Covid-19 nor against spreading the infection to others. Safety for all our guests and staff is fundamental to a great and meaningful vacation experience at The Hideout.
Let us work as a team to make sure The Hideout is the best riding and ranch vacation given the limitations and restrictions of today’s environment.
Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you for a great, relaxing vacation.
Marijn, Peter and The Hideout Crew
