Part of the wildlife-filled, 3,300-acre Blue Sky Ranch, the outdoorsy staff of Blue Sky Adventures invites guests to set up camp in accommodations that both preserve natural resources and work in harmony with the environment. Tucked away above Antelope Meadows, the Antelope yurt enshrouds travelers in a rustic atmosphere supported by eco-friendly conveniences including LED power generated by solar energy and positive thinking, a wood-burning stove, and an attached composting toilet (portable toilet required during winter). Sojourners bunk on either deluxe airbeds or cots, and a cooking stove or grill provides firepower for hot meals. Stepping out of yurt, guests hike or levitate to elevations ranging 6,000–9,000 feet, beholding views of the Wasatch Mountains, Deer Valley, and Rockport Reservoir. Check out the recommended equipment for what to bring, which varies by season—a mobile phone is mandatory at all times.
Diversions include winter activities such as the yoga and snowshoeing excursion (starting at $270 for two people), or come summer, recreational opportunities include two-hour kayaking tours ($80 per adult). Canine companions may come along for $50 per night.

During the winter months, nature lovers can take in the white-blanketed sights on a sleigh ride or dogsled, or try to sneak up on a rare species of snowman in a pair of snowshoes. Other group adventures include archery and a geo-cache scavenger hunt for the mountain's golden egg.
