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.

The 20/21 winter ski season has finally arrived and is in full swing. All 10 of our world-class ski resorts in Utah are now currently open. Nonetheless, things do look a little different this year. Every resort has different policies in place so you’re going to want to be sure to check your desired location and plan ahead on your Park City Utah trip this year.

As locals, our employees are a wealth of knowledge so we’ve tapped into their mountain town intellect to bring you some of their favorite Park City hidden gems to help you live like a local, whether you’re visiting for a week or a month, and create experiences of a lifetime during your winter vacation in Park City!


“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.
