From November 24 through December 21, sleigh drivers take groups on 20-minute treks through Homestead Resort to visit Santa. Teams of clydesdales, belgians, or spotted draft horses haul groups throughout the wintry tundra, revealing vistas of Heber Valley and the Wasatch Mountains before arriving at Santa's workshop. There, children sit on Santa's lap and divulge their wishes for the holidays before climbing back into the sleigh for the picturesque journey back.
Rocky Mountain Outfitters
Mountains echo with the clicking of hooves on rocks as mountain vegetation waves in the breeze and the sun glistens on snow-dappled trails. Schools of fish scatter as a pair of slick rubber boots parts the waters—a fisher wading through thick river sediment before casting a line into the current. Rocky Mountain Outfitters' experienced outdoorsmen usher customers through all manner of seasonal wilderness adventures, including fly-fishing on the Provo River, snowmobile tours, and horseback riding along mountain trails. Many tours run through Soldier Hollow Valley, which played host to the 2002 Winter Olympics.
Visitors may encounter roving wildlife such as snow rabbits, moose, and fawns frolicking through varied landscapes for memorable photo ops or police sketch-artist renderings. Adventure packages combine more than one outdoor activity and include the Reins and Train adventure, a role-playing tour that merges a train trip with a horseback trail ride. Depending on the season, guests can board traditional wagons or horse-drawn sleighs towed by teams of clydesdales, belgians, and spotted draft, or they can lasso free-range dinner rolls during Old West–style outdoor meals.
