Blue Sky Adventures’ seasoned guides and surefooted steeds lead riders across trails that wind through a 3,000-acre ranch. After learning to mount ponies and whisper the secret password for “go” in their ears, sojourners set out through the sloping meadows and snow-dusted pines forests. Over the course of an hour, equine caravans trot through the pristine snow, sheltered by the pine boughs that form a canopy over 25 miles of trails. Sharp eyes may spot tracks left by elk, moose, and snow angels, and toasty mugs of hot chocolate stoke belly furnaces. Blue Sky Adventures’ spacious ranch resides 15 minutes east of Park City and 35 minutes east of Salt Lake City and Ogden.
