How would we describe Victory Ranch in the summertime? Bustling bliss. There’s always something to do, someone to meet, somewhere to go. Whether it’s spontaneous adventure or carefully planned-out recreation, the Ranch is ready for you to create some unforgettable memories. Whether you’re enjoying your Residence Club cabin for a few weeks or just a weekend, here’s some inspo for your Victory Ranch bucket list this summer.
1. Go yurt camping in the backcountry
Nothing says summertime like a night spent in the great outdoors. Reachable via foot, bike or one of our rangers, our on-property backcountry yurts are a little different from your typical camping setup. Equipped with electricity, furniture and cozy beds, it’s a wilderness adventure without the stress of pitching a tent or discovering a hole in your air mattress. For added comfort, we can even arrange for a private chef to prepare food for you onsite.
2. Be a kid again at Stony Lake
Bring your kids or simply be a kid. Show off your best cannonball as you leap off the dock into Stony Lake—now at the optimal swimming temperature for the next couple of months. Venture into our boathouse to check out kayaks, stand-up paddleboards or bumper boats and spend the day on (and in) the water.
3. Craft some s’mores on your deck
Turn the porch lights off, fire up the gas fireplace on your Residence Club cabin patio and roast some marshmallows as you tell ghost stories or reminisce with family and friends. Looking to improve upon this classic summertime treat? Try spreading peanut butter or Nutella on your graham crackers beneath the chocolate bar.
4. Indulge in an ice cream cone at The Barn
Our most versatile destination, The Barn features a pizza parlor and ice cream shop (perfect for a hot summer day). Order a triple scoop with three different local flavors on a cone and try to finish it before it melts down your arm!
5. Celebrate the 4th of July—Victory Ranch style
This Fourth of July will be a full-weekend celebration at Victory Ranch. We’ve got tournaments, social hours, parades and more planned for adults, kids and families. It’s always a holiday that’s never to be missed at the Ranch, so we recommend planning a Residence Club stay around this holiday if you can!
6. Play a round of golf
Designed by the legendary Rees Jones, the Victory Ranch golf course is praised as one of the best courses in the state by Golf Digest—and it’s exclusively available to members and their guests, so definitely take advantage of it while you’re here. You’ll experience a 400-foot elevation change as you play the holes, gradually taking in grander panoramic vistas of the Wasatch throughout the day.
7. See how many constellations you can recognize
Stargaze with your eyes or bust out your binoculars, telescope or camera to get a closer look. Whether you’re an astronomy aficionado or simply an appreciator of the stars, there’s nothing quite like the wide open sky on a clear night.
