DeJoria Center in Winter
Word is spreading throughout the Wasatch about the incredible trails at High Star Ranch and all the awesome outdoor activities offered by the DeJoria Center’s on-site partner, Rhodes Valley Outfitters. But what you may not know is that the fun at DeJoria doesn’t have to stop during the winter months—there are many ways to enjoy our 1,100 acre ranch in the Uinta foothills, including some experiences you can’t get anywhere else in the Salt Lake City or Park City areas. If you find yourself with cabin fever this winter, come try something new to beat the snowy-season blues.
High Star Ranch horseback riding


Whether you’re a total novice or an experienced equestrian, our friendly, reliable herd of horses and experienced guides are guaranteed to make a ride through the snow-covered foothills a magical experience. All rides are customized to participants’ skill levels to ensure a stress-free experience that’s both exciting and safe. To make sure all rides have a personal, intimate feel, we only schedule private group outings—so you won’t have to worry about riding tip-to-tail with strangers.
High Star Trail Fat Tire Bike Riding


The High Star Ranch trail system is quickly becoming a favorite of Utah mountain bikers, with its winding climbs and fast, flowing descents spread across nearly 20 miles of trails. But the off-road riding season doesn’t have to be over when the snow falls. Fat bikes, with their massive tires boasting super-low PSI, provide great grip and float over packed snow to keep the two-wheeled fun alive even during the winter months. With a full fleet of fat-tire bikes, Rhodes Valley Outfitters is a great place to try out fat biking if you’re feeling the itch for some singletrack time.
