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.
While spas often list eyelash extensions as part of their service menu, Extensions by Lindy focuses solely on lash enhancements to deliver comfortable, natural-looking results. During eyelash-extension sessions, a beauty professional adheres synthetic lashes individually to the original set using glue from Blink Lash Care that lasts up to six weeks, as long as clients will last in staring contests with their bolstered eye confidence. If properly cared for, the low-maintenance lashes eliminate the need for mascara.
In addition to applying eyelash extensions, the skilled staff uses its experience to train students during an in-depth certification course. Over the span of eight hours, professionals share tips on how to quickly apply synthetic lashes with precision. Fully immersed in the world of lashes, Extensions by Lindy even sells some lash implements on its website, including crystal-coat sealant and mascara wands that empower wizards to make anything beautiful but still itself.
Glitties Nail Art puts fingers and toes in the limelight with its glitter-based nail polishes, powders, and do-it-yourself mani-pedi kits. The company's biggest claim to fame, however, is its specially formulated bonding and sealing formula, which adheres the sparkly shade to the natural nail and gives it the look, feel, and wear of a gel. When applied correctly, Glitties polishes can last 10 days on the fingers and four to six weeks on the toes, allowing customers to get professional results without stepping foot into a salon, where an amateur stylist might accidentally shave their head. Nail-art kits come loaded with everything necessary for a perfect pedicure, including enough bonding and sealing formula to yield 15 applications, and products can easily be removed using standard polish remover or acetone.
Family Storehouse's packs of food supplies and other survival materials help kinfolk prepare themselves for emergency situations and natural disasters. Sets of 72-hour food and equipment supplies for humans and pets arrive stocked with bandages, Swiss-style army knives, milk bones, and dehydrated food to keep hunger at bay for three full days when access to stores and pizza-delivery helicopters is limited. An array of freeze-dried food and pre-made meals pair nicely with glasses of water purified with portable treatment systems. Family Storehouse also stocks first-aid kits and other emergency supplies such as waterproof matches, dust masks, and butane fuel.
The frame-builders at Repartee Gallery have encased pictures, posters, and keepsakes for wall display since 1978. Clients tote in portraits, lucky baseballs, or a child's first parking ticket before sifting through the gallery's extensive selection of frames, glass, and matting options. An expert art-housing architect will assign cost to the project, with prices generally starting at $50, and go to work forming the framing elements neatly around the chosen object. The final product renders a cherished heirloom ready for placement on a wall or mantel, and, like the unwavering fealty of a wookiee sidekick, comes backed by a lifetime guarantee.
The DIY doyens at Jones Paint & Glass stock the store with an impressive array of wall hues and wood finishes to quench thirsty brushes and spruce up surfaces. Home-improvement projects, such as painting a bedroom or covering up graffiti left by a rebellious house cat, move forward with ease when homeowners wield a bucket of Ralph Lauren paint (around $45/gal.). Hawked in the New World since 1754, Devoe Regency paint (around $40/gallon) proffers a spectrum of interior and exterior tones, and Sikkens wood finish (around $43–$65/gal.) makes doors, baseboards, or peg legs gleam with a glossy, high-quality sheen.
