Life can move quick at Victory Ranch. You choose the speed, from high thrill backcountry adventures like natural spring trout fishing, a 5-stand shooting facility and 18 holes of Rees Jones-designed fairways and greens to perfect your stroke; here adventure and luxury amenities are at your beckon call. As the sun fades you can slow it down with some stargazing solitude while you listen to the crackling fire or enjoy a meal prepared by your very own private chef.

If it is more adventure you crave, your Victory Ranch home sits minutes from Park City, Utah, where the old silver mining town comes to life in the moonlight. Visitors stroll down Main Street peeking in and out of charming boutiques and one-of-a-kind eateries to satiate appetites and wandering curiosities. A charge of excitement hangs in the air because despite concerns from a weary community of veteran skiers as to whether or not the Mountain Resort would start up the chairlifts this ski season, the town is ready and opening day is just days away (Nov. 22, to be exact).

Concerns came with news of Vail Resorts, Inc. recently acquiring Park City Mountain Resort in Park City, Utah. But all is well and, in fact, the perfect ride just got longer. Visitors of Park City now have the option to purchase an Epic Pass, offering unlimited access to the entire family of parks including the legends of Alta, Aspen, Jackson Hole and Whistler Blackcomb. That is 32,000 acres of smooth winding trails and beds of fresh powder to plow through.

The slopes of Park City Mountain Resort brings world-class skiing with the very best amenities. This season offers an enhanced experience with improved lifts and more on site dining locations. And, with new snowmaking capabilities in Park City, ski season just got longer too.

If you don’t catch a strong enough buzz from the altitude or adrenaline-fueled terrain parks, you can ski into 875 Main and warm your spirit. Open exclusively to homeowners at Victory Ranch -- a development set amidst 6,700 pristine acres of Utah mountain wilderness and prized for its Rees Jones golf course, miles of private mountain biking and hiking trails, and 4-mile stretch of world-class fly fishing on the Upper Provo River -- this ski in/ski out club is comfortably situated in the heart of Park City and at the base of the Town Lift. 875 Main street is the perfect apres ski destination to hang up your boots and have a drink or lounge and catch a game before walking the downtown streets. It’s your home away from your Victory Ranch home with 24/7 access during ski season.

When you tire of exploring the giants in your own backyard, get the passport out as the Epic Pass extends ski access intercontinental to the hills of Switzerland, France and Japan. If the Epic Pass could talk it would speak 4 languages and be very well cultured. Fantastique!

With so many reasons to excite the senses, your hardest decision is what to do first. With the Epic Pass now open to Park City Mountain resorts, everyday is sure to be an epic opening day.
