The property, which opened at the beginning of June, has an on-site organic farm (and greenhouse) that supplies the resort’s signature restaurant, Yuta. There, James Beard Award-winning chef Galen Zamarra offers “a modern interpretation of refined Western cuisine,” with many dishes being prepared on a woodburning grill. The resort’s 7,400-square-foot spa has five treatment rooms, plus an open-air relaxation pool.
Traditional Western activities such as fly-fishing (on the ranch’s private stretch of Alexander Creek), hiking and horseback riding are available. In addition, the lodge has a partnership with a local helicopter company, which enables it to offer heli-skiing, heli-hiking, heli-fishing and heli-mountain biking. Helicopters also permit mountaintop yoga and meditation, and even heli-weddings for those who want a low-key and budget-conscious start to married life.
