Gazette Monthly  |  May Newsletter

The Flying U Ranch is an all inclusive western-style resort nestled on the banks of a crystal clear lake in the heart of British Columbia's historical cowboy country. Offering unguided riding with Canada's largest riding herd and an incredible range of soft adventures from kayaking, wilderness survival training and a 9 hole golf.

It's the homespun western charm that have brought people back here for well over 100 years. We still have daily horse wrangles, hay rides, square dancing, nightly fires,  live entertainment, delicious home cooked meals, and evenings in our own western saloon! 

In this edition of the Gazette Monthly, meet the new staff for 2017 drawn from Canada and around the world!
