Boot Ranch hosted a fabulous wine weekend for members, guests, and journalists.
A crowd of about 70 journalists, bloggers, Boot Ranch members and guests participated in the first Boot Ranch Wine Workshop and Tours April 22 and 23. Hosted in the Texas Hill Country’s finest private golf and family community nestled on more than 2,000 picturesque rolling acres, the wine was flowing and the pool was warm. The master-planned retreat is just five miles north of the quaint, historic town of Fredericksburg and offers a variety of living options. The clubhouse features expansive vistas, a spa, bar, casual and fine dining. What more could you possibly need?
Ski season is almost over, but don’t let that keep you from daydreaming about the perfect ski chalet in Park City, Utah’s Deer Valley. Known as the best place to buy a luxury ski home, this area is full of multi million-dollar beauties that will make you bat your eyelashes. And, of course, you’ll have plenty to do with the annual Sundance Film Festival, too. Here are a few of our favorites that will be perfect to host a gaggle of snow bunnies for the perfect apres ski!
1) Amazing Canyons Ski Retreat
This home is so high end that the listing doesn’t even have an address. Located in the Canyons, this amazing chalet has nine bedrooms and 15 bathrooms over more than 15,000 square feet in an amazing 5-acre setting. This family legacy estate feels almost like a compound, really, with a courtyard around which several buildings circle. Listed for a whopping $26.2 million, you’d expect this home to have an amazing hot tub. Surprise, surprise: it does. (Fisher Group/Summit Sotheby’s International)
2. Empire Pass Chalet
I am in love with this place. You get a classic chalet profile on the exterior of this Red Cloud luxury ski home, but inside everything feels so modern. The master bath has an amazing infinity edge, allowing you to submerge your whole body while you admire the mountains outside. Listed for $13.5 million, 8 Ruby Hollow is my dream ski home!

3. Contemporary Park Meadows With Huge Glass Wall
And now for something completely different. This Park Meadows contemporary ski home has an amazing wall of windows for some of the best views in the Mountain Top subdivision. I love the attention to detail and how completely different this home feels from the multitude of listings that imitate a traditional ski chalet. Listed for just $4.5 million, it’s pretty affordable as far as Park City luxury properties go. (Prudential Park City)
4. Jordanelle Ski Run
Views? This property has them. From this home you can see both the Jordanelle River and Park City proper in the distance. It’s very private, too, with neighbors out of viewing distance on three sides. It’s on the market for $8.495 million. (Summit Sotheby’s International)
5. Creme de la creme of Park City
Indoor pool? Check. Antler chandeliers? Check. $44 million views? Check. This home, which happens to be constructed from logs reclaimed from Yellowstone National Park, is the most luxurious Park City ski home on the market. It has 12 bedrooms and 16 baths on more than 60 acres. The owner is willing to subdivide the Upper Deer Valley property, or you can keep it all for a very private compound.
