In July 2016, our family celebrated 106 years of calling the lands of the Ruby Valley home. Since Peck and Mary Tate first homesteaded here in 1910, we’ve been fortunate to raise our family in a place surrounded by the mountains of the Greenhorn, Gravelly and Snowcrest ranges, the waters of the Ruby River, and the wooded valleys of the Beaverhead National Forest.
In 1981, Bill and Bernice Tate first opened the doors of this working ranch to guests and made a place for them at our table. Since then, through the support and efforts of family and friends, Upper Canyon Outfitters has grown to become one of the premier guest ranches in Montana. From Peck and Mary Tate, to Bill and Bernice Tate, to Jake and Donna Tate McDonald, and now to Freddie and Cassie McDonald Ubaldo and their sons Eli and Oliver, the ranch has become a place passed through the generations.
We’re proud of our family’s heritage in this valley and hope that you’ll become part of our family as well, and come visit us time and time again.
