That’s how Stan Dardis starts his mornings in Alpine, Wyoming. He is a resident of The Refuge AirRanch, “the world’s most majestic fly-in residential sporting community,” according to its founder Steven Funk. This 80-acre community in Wyoming’s Star Valley offers pilots the opportunity to live and fly in some of the most incredible landscapes in the world and features highly designed homes with jet-size hangars just minutes from recreational pursuits like snowmobiling and skiing, kayaking and rafting, horseback riding and fly-fishing. It’s a playground for grown-ups. “The natural beauty is off the charts,” says Funk. And “there’s nothing like parking your airplane in your garage,” adds resident Clint Newell. The Refuge AirRanch is a year-round fly-in residential gated community near Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which Funk established in the early 2000s. There’s a strong sense of community and camaraderie here, with residents sharing like-minded interests—and some pretty great Friday night hangar parties.
