One of our favorite parts of vacation is being able to enjoy a taste of the town we are visiting, and your Park City ski journey is surely going to make it your favorite part as well! Skiing takes up a lot of energy, requiring a lot of fuel, and fortunately for all our hungry travelers, the restaurant scene is up to the challenge of conquering the largest of appetites. A foodie’s paradise, the international selection of restaurants will meet any craving, and whether you are just looking for a snack to tide you over during après ski or have your comfy pants with the stretchy waistbands in preparation for a big meal after your big day on the slopes, your choices, illustrated here, will delight! And remember, if your eyes are too big for your stomach, there is always room at the tables in our Park City Hotels ski sanctuaries to enjoy leftovers! Find the top places to eat in Park City below!
Top Restaurants in Park City for Après Ski Delights
Even though winter days are short, they will feel much longer after a day spent exploring the trails of the big resorts in town, and the hunger pangs (intermingled with chattering teeth and shivering cold) you will feel as you make your last trip down the slopes may surprise you. Skiing is an ancient sport, documented in primitive carvings that date back to 3000-4000 B.C., and not surprisingly, après ski followed soon after. And while those earlier Scandinavian events were probably not more than a toast to the ski gods, today’s après ski can be a major undertaking spent with lots of munchies, strong alcohol, and of course a fireplace for added warmth!
Places like the Umbrella Bar in Canyon’s Village provide a casual atmosphere, offering an outdoor patio with firepits, live music, and hot wings that will help you warm up even more. For those exploring the wonders of Park City Ski Resort, The Corner Store at Park City Mountain has been THE spot for après ski for over 30 years while also offering a market in which you can pick up a few things to take back to your home sweet vacation home. Offering pub grub, draft beers, and specialty cocktails, live music helps keep the party going until it is time to pack up your skis and start thinking about your nighttime adventures. And finally, if a party is what you seek, a party is what the No Name Saloon proffers! Located on historic Main Street and offering a heated rooftop bar with unparalleled views, they prove you don’t need a name to be the top après ski spot in Park City. Their bison meat nachos are world-renowned and offer the ideal “snack” to hold you over until it is time to enjoy the main event.
When the Dinner Bell Rings
Now that you have warmed up from your playtime in the snow and you have probably washed away the grime of the day in our updated showers, it is time to experience the best of Park City for dinner. Our mountain town offers a sophisticated selection of fine dining restaurants intermingled with homey pubs and even family restaurants, ensuring that no matter what you crave, you will find it here!
Keep it casual and soul-warming with a visit to Hana Ramen Bar, where bowls of noodles will also help you physically stay warm or add romance and fine dining to an evening out with a meal in the Stein Ericksen Alpenglobes in Deer Valley Ski Resort. Stay warm and cozy as the snow falls around you, devouring hearty meals that enhance this stellar dining experience and although this meal will be pricier than you expected, it will create a cherished memory that is more than worthy of the “cost of admission!” Riverhorse on Main has long been a quintessential Park City dining experience, offering high-end American-style food in digs that are definitely not stuffy or intimidating! It is also a spot where you may just find yourself rubbing shoulders with celebrities in town for the Sundance Film Festival, so keep your eyes respectfully peeled if that is something that appeals to you. Last on our list, but not in our hearts, is The Mustang. Offering bold Western flavors that reflect the soul of our former mining town, this is where you can enjoy an authentic taste of the West in upscale surroundings, and although many top restaurants in Park City are known for their small plates, the meals served here will be hearty ones!
Home Is Where Your Comfy Clothes Await
After snacking your way through après ski and gorging yourself on the famous Black Diamond Chocolate Cake at The Mustang, making your way home to your comfy pants waiting for you in our Park City Hotels vacation escapes may be the best part of your day. Reserve your favorite today!
