Dining in Park City


Keeping you properly fueled is key to a great day on the mountain, and Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley have a variety of dining options to make that happen. Whether you are looking for an award-winning gourmet lunch or a quick ski-in, ski-out bite to eat, the following guide to on-mountain dining in Park City will help you navigate your way to the perfect meal. A lift ticket or season pass is required to access on-mountain restaurants. Due to local restrictions on capacity limits, we highly recommend that guests bring their own snacks and water.





Another option for on-mountain dining is packing your own lunch. Wake up a half an hour earlier and put together a satiating lunch that will keep you going throughout the day. Either grab a day locker and store your lunch there or bring a backpack. You can eat pre-packaged or homemade lunches at outdoor picnic tables on the mountains. And sometimes the best lunches are a smooshed peanut butter and jelly sandwich that are fully enjoyed on a chairlift in between pow harvesting runs.

Other items to bring with you for a full day on the hill:


One of the perks of staying in an Abode that is near the mountain or ski-in/ski-out is the opportunity to head back to your cozy home, warm up, and create a luxurious meal in your own space. We’ve highlighted a couple of Park City Mountain vacation rentals and Deer Valley vacation rentals where you can shush right over for mealtime.

If you are looking for activities to do other than the obvious we’ve compiled a list of our “Top 10 Favorite Things to do During the Winter that is NOT Skiing and Snowboarding”.


Rent a pair of snowshoes from White Pine Touring and take them out on one of the many trails around Park City to enjoy some winter wandering. If you don’t feel comfortable going out on your own, book a guided snowshoes tour with White Pine.


Another exhilarating activity to try this winter is Fat Biking. Rent bikes at White Pine Touring and head over to Round Valley. Those summer dirt trails are now covered in snow and are groomed for a different kind of biking experience


Spend an afternoon perusing the shops on Main Street. Grab a cocktail at the No Name Saloon or have a bite to eat at one of our fantastic dining establishments.


Get your heart rate pumping by joining a snowmobile tour. Get whisked away into the backcountry and enjoy the cold winter air on your face as you explore a little deeper into the mountains.


For those who are looking to take their skiing or snowboarding to the next level sign up for a backcountry tour with Inspired Summit Adventures or Park City Powder Cats. Learn what it takes to be safe in the backcountry and ski pristine lines without anyone else around.


This classic family winter tradition has now become easier with recent upgrades to our tubing hill including the addition of a new magic carpet and an increased number of lanes for tubing! Woodward Park City offers snow tubing with conveniences to produce nothing but smiles for the whole family.


For those who want a break from the slopes, but want to keep active, Park City offers a variety of fitness centers with drop-in options.  Swimming, tennis, spin classes, or time spent with a personal trainer are all great ways to exercise inside.  Follow these up with time in a steam shower, or, if you’re in need of deep relaxation, treat yourself to a day at the spa.  Or you can hire your very own personal trainer like Stoke Coach Rachel Friedman Elberts to come to your house or meet you at a trailhead and create a custom outdoor fitness experience.


A perfect way to rest your legs, dog sledding offers unique views and access to more remote areas with stunning views, peace, and quiet in the areas surrounding Park City.  Dog sledding is great for families to enjoy together, or for those looking for an escape, a romantic activity for two!


Brush up on your Olympic history with a guided tour of Utah Olympic Park, or a walk through the Alf Engen Ski Museum and Eccles 2002 Olympic Winter Games Museum.  Cap off your day at the Park with a thrilling ride on the Comet Bobsled.  Other winter activities and hours vary – check out full offerings on Utah Olympic Park’s website.


Enjoy an evening adventure that begins with a 23-minute spectacular sleigh ride up 1,800 feet with incredible views of the night sky, giant trees, and the best views of Park City and surrounding mountains.

“If you only had just 24 hours to spend in Park City this winter, I would recommend stopping by the Utah Olympic Park and taking a ride down the bobsled track, skiing from coast to coast at PCMR, or taking a sleigh ride to the Viking Yurt at Park City.” – Chris Beckett, Assistant Property Manager

“I always recommend the skier’s buffet at Stein Eriksen Lodge!” – Blane Bossung, Operations

“For more experienced skiers, you can’t miss the Interconnect Tour for some of the best backcountry terrain in the Wasatch! For visitors of any skill level, a snowmobile tour is always a great adventure for all!” – Mark Schumacher, Guest Services

“For a truly unique mountain adventure, check out Park City Yoga Adventures Sunrise or Moonlight Snowshoe & Paddleboard Yoga! Bundle up and enjoy a snowshoe trek as the sun rises over the mountains, or under the stars, then defrost & relax as you’re transported to a whole other world with paddleboard yoga in the steamy mineral waters of the Homestead Crater!” – Lauren Marshall, Marketing Director


“A can’t-miss experience would definitely be catching first chair at Empire Canyon at Deer Valley on a powder day! In the fall, you can’t miss leaf peeping that Fall foliage at the top of Guardsmen’s Pass.” – Brad Pillsbury, Property Sales Manager

“We love a moonlit mountain sleigh ride up to the Viking Yurt on Park City Mountain to enjoy a special meal and unforgettable experience!” – Rachel Alday, Owner

“I personally think you have not fully experienced PC until you’ve experienced skiing or snowboarding here. We have the best snow on earth! Off the mountain, another can’t-miss experience is visiting some of the historic sites and learning the stories that make Park City such a special place, with Mines & Wines or Park City Ghost Tours!” – Morgan Anderson, Guest Services & Office Assistant

“A can’t miss for winter would obviously be experiencing Park City skiing & snowboarding! If you’re a big mountain biker like me, try it on the snow this winter and rent a Fat Tire bike to cruise Park City’s trails!” – Chance Phillips, Assistant Property Manager

Woodward Park City is a new year-round action sports facility that the whole family will love! In the winter, they offer snow tubing, ski & snowboard terrain parks and an indoor Action Sports Hub with trampolines, foam pits, sports park, ramps & more!” – Rob Alday, Owner


“Start or end a night on Main Street with a cocktail at High West Distillery – my favorite is the Dead Man’s Boot! For dinner, I always recommend Riverhorse on Main. Their trio of wild game is probably my favorite entree in Park City! For a great beer selection outside of busy Main Street, check out The Boneyard.” – Blane Bossung

“Hit up The Spur for live music, good food and a heated patio overlooking Main Street! Seeing a show at the Egyptian Theater is truly a Park City gem! And don’t forget to try the skier’s buffet from Glitretind at Stein’s, it’s quite difficult to show restraint!” Mark Schumacher

“I second the Dead Man’s Boot at High West! It’s a delicious whiskey cocktail made with the local distillery’s award-winning offerings, and the best part is you can ski/ride right in under the Town Lift for aprés around their outdoor fire pits.” – Chris Beckett

“With so many amazing restaurants in Park City, it’s hard to pick just one or two to visit in one day! Make the most of your time here with a Park City Food Tour! This guided tour will take you along our Historic Main Street to sample delicious dishes from award-winning chefs at some of the top Park City restaurants.” – Lauren Marshall, Marketing Director

“XC skiers: check out the free XC skiing courses throughout the area. Basin Recreation & Round Valley offer groomed trail systems or take a tour with White Pine Nordic Center. For taco lovers: try El Chubasco for a great post-ride hang out on the patio!” – Brad Pillsbury

“One of my favorite spots to dine for a special night on Main Street is 350 Main, a longtime fine-dining staple of Old Town! The owner, Cortney, will make you feel like family. After dinner, head downstairs to their new Alpine Pie Bar for craft Alpine Distillery cocktails, and of course, delicious pie! ” – Rachel Alday

“If you’ve got a special bottle of wine to pop for a special occasion, or to save on restaurant wine prices, in Utah you can bring your own wine to restaurants (who are licensed to serve wine) and pay a small corkage fee. Best of all, whatever you don’t finish you can re-cork and take with you to finish back at home.” – Rob Alday

“A hidden gem is visiting Park City in September, as it’s technically the off-season and has the most amazing fall colors so you can skip those Sundance crowds. My favorite restaurant is Cafe Terigo where you can’t go wrong with their salmon salad on the lunch menu! They also have an amazing Arnold Palmers!” – Morgan Anderson

Deer Valley Cafe has some of Park City’s best breakfast. You can sit outside, overlooking the lake while eating my personal favorite – Bagel & Lox.” – Chance Phillips

Well, there you have it! An amazing offering from our local employees giving you the inside scoop on some of the best-hidden gems Park City has to offer!

Start your snow dances! Park City Mountain just announced their highly anticipated update on what winter 2020/21 will look like.

And with great excitement – they are planning to open for winter on Friday, November 20th. Weee!

We can tell that they have been hard at work planning and preparing a great ski and ride season for all, and they will be focusing on three things: safety, having a successful season start to finish, and prioritizing pass holders.

In a letter from Vail Resorts to pass holders, they shared their winter operating plan with opening dates and answers on everything from face coverings to loading lifts to on-mountain dining. But the most important and potentially impactful change is a new reservation system that will manage mountain access and gives pass holders priority access for safety and social distancing

This season will definitely look and feel a little different, but you will have peace of mind knowing you’ll have the space you need at the resort and at our Abode Properties.
