The Passion Behind Goosewing Ranch

February 8th, 2012 by Amy Worster

For those of you that have visited Goosewing Ranch – you know that one of the best things about the ranch is the bond you form with the people, and the area.  At Goosewing Ranch we consider our staff, and guests as family.  We welcome you with open arms, and embrace you when it is time to go.  The one person that has brought so many diverse people together, and into the Goosewing Ranch family, is the owner, Francois Corrand.

Before there were cowboys riding this beautiful country… there were mountain men exploring, and like most children, the dream of being like one of these great characters lived within Francois.  Francois grew up in the French country side working on his uncles’ farm.  He spent his summers with his cousins picking vegetables, driving a horse drawn buck board, and moving dairy cattle from meadow to meadow, using bicycles instead of horses.  When he wasn’t helping on the farm he was learning about life out in the Wild West.  Fascinated by the French trappers of the early 1800’s he knew he must experience this country for himself.

As we all know, life often takes us down various paths.  Francois’ took him to many places, and he experienced much as a young man – making his first trip to the United States in 1982.  Knowing that his chosen career in Pharmaceuticals wasn’t his passion…he came back to the United States and invested into a snowmobile business in Jackson Hole in 1993, and then the Goosewing Ranch in 1996.  Francois has recently sold the snowmobile business, but has made many investments and improvements to the Ranch.  Check out our blog post on new amenities, coming soon.

Francois is a family man with a lovely wife, and three great children.  He brings this family style living to the ranch…with warm employees, and by going out of his way to make the Goosewing Ranch an extra special place.  We hope all of our guests feel comfortable, relaxed, and at home on the ranch.  Come… let us welcome you into the Goosewing Ranch family.  A vacation you will cherish for a lifetime!

Travel Insurance…Your helping hand

February 6th, 2012 by Amy Worster

Your BIG vacation is here, you have saved for this, planned for this, and been looking forward to this for a long time.  You awake with excitement before your alarm even sounds, just to find out… your flight has been delayed, your mother is sick, or something else has happened, and you are going to have to miss at least part of you treasured Wyoming vacation.  What comes to mind…NO REFUNDS, missed time with family, missing activities you have been looking forward, no Yellowstone, and all that money you have spent on this trip.

Vacations are times that will live in our memories for years to come, and for many of us we don’t get to take enough of them.   We all know too well that anything can happen between the booking stage and the actual trip itself.  This is way purchasing travel insurance can be beneficial.   Travel insurance is relatively affordable and it gives you peace of mind when spending thousands of dollars on your vacation.

Travel insurance can cover things like…missed flights, unexpected hotel expenses, weather delays, terrorist acts, hospital visits, missed vacation time because of personal or family/traveler illnesses or accidents, and much more.  Travel Guard is a company that has travel insurance designed for the Dude Ranch vacationers.  Click here http://bit.ly/AvWKg0 for more information.

We at Goosewing Ranch recommend travel insurance because you should always expect the unexpected, and we know how valuable your time away from home is. Peace of mind for both before and during your travels.  We wish you many safe and successful vacations!
