Summer is in full swing, and camping is just one of the many activities we gravitate towards during the summer months. Longer days and warmer nights bring us to enjoying the adventures of the outdoors with family and friends. City National Bank shares an article on the new take of camping or “glamping,” featuring Victory Ranch’s very own backcountry yurt experience. “The world of glamorous camping – or ‘glamping’ – takes the rough edges off roughing it, combining high-end adventure with five-star amenities.”
Here at the Ranch it’s all about “glurting,” describes Marlene Burton, a Victory Ranch member. She took to the backcountry to spend a few nights under the stars beside a crackling fire with her family. In the article, Burton says it surpassed all her expectations. “The yurt, which came outfitted with beds, wine and a private chef, made for nice ‘vacay digs’ – but the locale was still the main event.”
“While the amenities at five-star glamping destinations can be impressive, the aim is to venture outside and experience nature,” shares City National Bank. But with miles of untouched backcountry at Victory Ranch, it’s not hard to escape the everyday hustle and bustle and connect with nature’s roots. With hiking trails awaiting you steps from your yurt’s doorstep, mountain biking available for an afternoon ride and a 5-stand shooting range just a Polaris Ranger ride away – it’s hard not to get in touch with nature.
End your day huddled by the fire with a glass of wine in hand, enjoying what the quiet night has to offer while a private chef crafts an intimate gourmet dinner served with the freshest ingredients – don’t forget to finish off the evening with a s’more roasted to perfection.
Best advice for a novice ‘yurter’ – “Find out what you actually need so you don’t overpack,” says Burton. That goes for food, too. “If you don’t have a chef, find out about cooking facilities and if you can have supplies driven in. No need to carry if you’re glamping.”
When it’s time to head back to the Ranch, enjoy another great amenity of not having to roll up your sleeping bag or pack up your car. See you in the backcountry.
