As a four-season community, there is never a shortage of things to do at Victory Ranch. On site, the Upper Provo River is a gateway to Utah’s best fishing and riverside sports while The Post, Freestone Lodge and, now, The Barn offer infinite opportunity for fine cuisine and lively events. But just beyond Victory Ranch also lies a wonderland of mountainside adventure: at Park City and Deer Valley. These world-renowned resorts offer events for the whole family and have proven, each year, to be celebratory hubs for ringing in the new year.
While Victory Ranch hosts a New Years Eve Party of its own, complete with funk bands, small bites and libations, these Park City happenings are sure to delight.
