Lodge at Blue Sky to Open in May

Auberge Resorts Collection’s newest resort, The Lodge at Blue Sky, is set on 3,500 acres just outside of Park City and plans to welcome its first overnight guests in May. The property is the vision of local developer and rancher Mike Phillips and is the luxury complement to his Blue Sky Ranch, a yearround destination for outdoor adventures.

The lodge’s 46 accommodations range in size from 570 to 2,500 square feet, and the new Auberge Spa offers an open-air soaking pool, treatments, fitness training and mindful pursuits such as yoga.

Sky Lodge is the social heart of the resort and where guests can enjoy meals or relax outside on the patio. The focus of the lodge’s main restaurant will be refined western cuisine using many ingredients that are locally produced or grown on-site. The Refectory, an already established restaurant at High West Distillery at Blue Sky, offers dining, tours, tastings and inventive whiskey-based cocktails. Another option is The Tavern  at Blue Sky, a remote outpost saloon. In summer months, early risers can partake in morning horseback rides up the hillside for a cowboy cauldron-style breakfast made over The Tavern’s open campfire. Blue Sky’s existing meeting and event spaces, in addition to The Tavern, are The Arena, The Remuda and The Terrace. aubergeresorts.com/bluesky
