The resort, opened last summer, reintroduces guests with the natural environment through organic architecture that mirrors the majesty of the land, authentic Western-inspired adventures, farm-to-table cuisine driven by Blue Sky’s on-site farm, a cliffside wellness sanctuary for restorative treatments, memorable events in unique spaces throughout the property, and the High West Whiskey Distillery, where guests can learn the distillation process from grain to glass.
The Lodge at Blue Sky thrives with active experiences for guests, from heli-yoga and full moon hiking to fly fishing and horseback riding on groomed trails. Guests of all levels of experience will enjoy natural “Vaquero-style” horsemanship lessons and meaningful encounters with rescued horses, residents of the on-site Saving Gracie Equine Healing Foundation, a non-profit founded by Barb Philips dedicated to saving the lives of horses through rescue, sanctuary, medical care, compassion and respect.
Guests may also experience fly fishing, championship-calibre shooting clays, hiking, biking, outdoor yoga and guided meditation, al fresco art classes, cross-country skiing and snow shoeing on property, as well as downhill skiing at nearby Park City Mountain Resort.
The Little Vaquero’s Club invites younger guests to enjoy daily themed excursions tailored to their age group, including horsemanship lessons and riding, wildlife education, fishing, farm days when guests can help tend the 1.5-acre organic farm, pick berries and herbs, interact with horses, cows, chickens, bees and more. Younger guests can also enjoy the ultimate in-room luxury camping experience complete with sleeping teepees.
Through a partnership with helicopter outfitter Powderbird, guests will depart from the property on a 10-minute flight for unforgettable experiences on 200,000 acres of untouched terrain in the Wasatch and Uinta mountain ranges, from winter heli-skiing to summer heli-hiking, heli-fly fishing, heli-mountain biking and mountaintop yoga and meditation. Heli-weddings are also available for those looking for a breathtaking and unforgettable ceremony.
Resort guests skiing Park City’s award-winning ski runs will be looked after at Blue Sky’s Ski Lounge located in town at the base of the mountain. There, guests will be able to store gear, request tune-ups, warm up with hot drinks and appetizers, or have the attendant book a restorative spa treatment for their return to The Lodge via the resort’s fleet of complimentary shuttles.
