While some may believe one’s best summer is spent seaside, The Wall Street Journal would like to affirm otherwise. In a front page real estate article highlighting the allure of ski towns in summer months, the Journal shines the spotlight on Victory Ranch: a locale that members Mike and Peggy Grubbs have found to fulfill their most adventurous ambitions—particularly when the weather is at its warmest.
According to homeownership trends recorded by The Wall Street Journal, more second-home buyers are seeking out ski-resort towns for their array of summer amenities. Developers throughout the nation’s most premier mountain towns and ski resorts are pushing to diversify the economy so as ski revenues do not determine a year’s worth of income. As such, Victory Ranch’s host of summer activities are not just valuable to the members within the community—they’re likewise beneficial to the region’s overall economic health.
The article features just two luxury mountain towns in the nation, one being Victory Ranch. Katy McLaughlin, reporter for The Wall Street Journal, gains notable insight from Mike and Peggy regarding why they chose Utah over their home base in Newport Beach, California during the summer months. Upon their first visit to Victory Ranch, they immediately put a deposit down on a lot: “The location was perfect for everything the season [summer] had to offer,” professed the Grubbs.
Featuring “an 18-hole golf course, club houses, a shooting facility, mountain-biking trails and a restaurant,” amongst a wealth of additional amenities upon the 6,700-acre property, Victory Ranch is the perfect locale to experience the natural beauty of summer whilst enjoying five-star services.
While one of Victory Ranch’s greatest draws is, indeed, the summer, the luxury residential community, too, lies just moments from the slopes of Park City and Deer Valley. Members enjoy an exclusive lounge at the base of the ski lift in Park City and valet services for equipment. Thus, Victory Ranch is the quintessence of a full-fledged, four-season destination, where a summer stay has begun to rival the classic winter holiday.
