• Montana’s Lazy E-L Ranch is 12,000 acres of heaven just outside Yellowstone—where you get the chance to help wranglers move 2,300 yearlings through the Beartooth Mountains. Cabins from $1,500 per week, including meals; lazyel.com

• Okay, your average cowpoke doesn’t get grub prepared by a Cordon Bleu–trained chef. But ​at the Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch, high in Wyoming’s Big Horn Moun­tains, you do. All the better to prepare for sorting, gathering, and driving cattle—and helping brand them too, ​if you want. Cabins from $1,795 for 4 nights, including meals; thehideout.com
