    I put it in quotations because while the article says it isn’t a dude ranch, it sounds like a dude ranch. It’s a ranch set up for backcountry flying that only allows operations on its turf runway or helipad and can fit turboprops.

    That being said it still looks cool as all getout and the views are breathtaking. I’d check it out for sure.

    Will be interesting to see if they're able to make a go of it.
