Where: When you think of Park City, a teeming ski town usually comes to mind. However, when you picture the Wasatch Mountains, about thirty minutes from the town’s main drag, you see a completely different picture: snow-capped peaks, unobstructed views, and the rare kind of rustic luxury that Lodge at Blue Sky represents. Run by Auberge Resorts, this private ranch spans 3,500 acres and is just as conducive to warm month adventures as it is to lounging by the fire pit with the hot vortex in hand. Trek-out-your-door rooms, a sleek infinity pool, and the kind of naturally built-in social distancing that makes you feel worlds away from everything – and really everyone (the Earth Suites: just wow) .
What to do: If spring skiing isn’t your thing, there’s always the option to take a helicopter ride for a fly fishing expedition, followed by a fondue lunch in a secluded yurt. Or maybe you’d rather saddle up on the shady trails for a day. And no one has ever regretted spending an afternoon at the Edge Spa. If you happen to wander away from the property, make a pit stop at the Five5eeds cafe in town to enjoy Australian-style lattes and grain bowls that won’t slow you down on the trails (the view of the canyon at Lake Blanche is a half-day Worth hike if you’re feeling ambitious). Be sure not to miss the High West Distillery’s Thursday evening night club, where the atmosphere is as strong as the limited edition whiskeys. And as always, our robust city guides are here to help.
