Forbes | America’s Best Ski Hotels For Your Ultimate Winter Vacation
Blue Sky Utah is a 3,500-acre community and recreational paradise in the Wasatch Mountains, about 25 minutes from Park City. The new Lodge at Blue Sky from Auberge Resorts just opened in 2019 – and quickly earned a coveted Forbes 5-Star rating. It features 46 rustic-luxe rooms and suites inspired by the natural surroundings, with lavish bathrooms and outdoor living spaces. There’s a full spa, signature restaurant, and a very wide range of outdoor activities and adventures on site, from horseback riding, hiking, fly fishing, and winter sporting clays to heli-skiing, snowshoeing and even biathlon. The community is also home to the High West Distillery & Tasting Room, a larger spin off of the wildly popular Park City original craft distillery, and like that one, this location has a standout restaurant with locally sourced food, full retail store, tours and tastings. It’s not part of the Auberge resort but it is within walking distance (or they’ll drive you) and a great addition. But the real luxury here is the included transfers to and from the Blue Sky Ski Lounge, a large dedicated facility at the base of one of the least crowded gateways to the huge ski resort, the Silver Star chairlift. The luxury lounge is stocked with complimentary snacks, pastries and hot drinks, plus a full bar, and has locker facilities and everything else you need to painlessly transition between the vast acreage of skiing and the huge rooms at your escapist lodging at one of the nation’s best outdoorsy resorts.
