Highs & Lows

  • Vast property and incredible landscape to explore in all seasons. You will find something to do outside throughout the entire year at The Lodge at Blue Sky

  • There's an adventure available for everybody: clay shooting, mountain biking, horseback riding, hiking, archery, wine tasting, axe throwing, yoga, etc.

  • Great location for winter sports! In close proximity to all main Park City resorts for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and even heli-skiing

  • Wellness amenities: The spa offers five main treatments that are locally inspired and feature products that utilize natural, bloom-to-bottle ingredients. There are mindfulness experiences: outdoor yoga, guided meditation, and vertical vinyasa/aerial yoga, which uses large swaths of silk suspended from tree branches in a secluded forest

  • An existing partnership with Mercedes Benz gives you access to luxury vehicles you can borrow to drive around town. I took the G-wagon out for a spin

  • Great social purpose and environmental initiatives: no single-use plastics, locally sourced bath products, in-house water treatment facility, female-led organic farm, and even an equine healing foundation and sanctuary

  • It's pricey, so not accessible to most

    All the stone used to build The Lodge at Blue Sky comes from a stone quarry several miles down the road from the property. This hyper-local and environmental focus extends to the property’s forgoing of single-use plastics and wastewater treatment facility. The hotel also has its own organic farm, Gracie’s Farm, which is a female-led “no-till” farm that supplies the restaurant and beyond with vegetables, herbs, wildflowers, and honey. The 46 rooms and suites are built into the natural landscape, leading to a feeling of total immersion in nature, but feature high-end comforts and amenities such as fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling windows, soaking tubs, and rain showers
