Job Description & Requirements

The 4UR Ranch is one of the oldest resorts in the State of Colorado and has been welcoming guests for over 140 years. With natural hot springs, 6 miles of private fly fishing, thousands of acres of mountain access, a herd of 55 horses, a geothermal outdoor pool, a new fitness room, and a Le Cordon Bleu trained chef, the guest amenities are exceptional. And if you’re hired as part of our team, you will have opportunities to take advantage of these as well, making the 4UR Ranch way more than just another Colorado Summer job.

We’re always on the lookout for young, energetic people to help us make the 4UR Ranch the ultimate vacation for our guests. If you would like to consider spending a summer working in the mountains of Southern Colorado please give us a call at 719-658-2202. Rather than providing applications through the internet, we prefer to chat with you for a while before emailing an official application. If beautiful scenery, hard work and genuine camaraderie is your idea of a great summer, please look over the employment section below, as well as the video on this page and our Instagram page to better familiarize yourself with our resort. Then give us a call and let’s talk!


Fishing on Goose Creek is one of the finest private fly fishing experiences offered in the Rocky Mountain west and our guests have come to expect a high level of knowledge and expertise from our seasonal guides. Our guides must be experienced anglers, skilled in communication, teaching, and social skills, and have a clear understanding of the art of fly fishing on small water as well as rivers.

All guides must be comfortable and flexible in a team environment and expect that on days when private trips are not booked, the guides will be working in other areas of the ranch at the team leader’s discretion. All guides must be current in CPR and First Aid certifications before arriving at the ranch.  Housing and meals are built into the seasonal contract.
