I am going to Park City in late January for a week. I have never been there and would like to know about any good restaurants and hangouts.

Hi,

I haven't been to Park City, either, but I do have updated information from the resort. Have you received their vacation planner? It has a lot of useful info including listings of restaurants (by type), lots of details on aprés ski activities, etc.

The official web page of Park City Mountain Resort is "http://www.parkcitymountain.com/", and there's an on-line form you can fill out to request the free vacation planner. (Click on the Trip Planner link on the left side of the page.)

I hope that helps - sorry I couldn't add any "firsthand" info!

- Scott

I went to Park City for a few days last winter. The only problem is that I can't remember the names of most of the places that I visited. The Wasatch Brew Pub at the top of the historic area was good for both food and beverage, I can recommend that. Elsewhere, everything I tried in the historic area of the town was quite good. The only place I had a bad experience at was some mexican place just as you are coming into town....I don't think any of us liked the food there.

Bars are kind of funny. You have to buy memberships, or get sponsored by a member to enter. Usually it meant paying a couple of bucks at the door, but some of the locals were glad to sponsor us from time to time.

Skiing at Park City and Deer Valley was excellent. I was there with friends of all skill levels and everyone had a great time on the slopes.

Sorry I can't be of more help, if I can find a map and jog my memory, I will pass more info along.

Thanks Scott and Pacyderm. I received the trip planner some time ago and have found a lot of info on the web. Both Park City and Deer Valley will be represented at the Ski Expo in Balston so I will stop by their booth for some more information. Off the subject a bit, I was wondering if there were any people involved in "ski houses" (like the beach houses in Dewey and Rehoboth) either in Canaan Valley or 7 Springs?

I have been two years running to SLC. We try to stay in Sandy, UT and ski all the resorts. Deer Vally is the tops. Expensive but everything is tops. Great snow conditions (real or manmade) with extensive grooming. Try to eat at Stein's place. Expensive but very memorable. Enjoyed the Canyons when the snow was good. If it hasn't snowed recently, forget the Canyons. I turned my new skiis into rock skiis last year because of their poor conditions. Try to get to the resorts up the Cottonwood Canyon roads. Alta was memorable. Good snow (av. something like '500 a year). Reasonable ticket prices. Solitude was great. Appropriately named. Wonderful place. My most favorite trail is here - the Summit Run. Unforgetable. Snowbird was nice. Try all the resorts. I find them all worth the trip.

Thanks Jeb! We have plans to ski Park City, Deer Valley and the Canyons, but if we get a chance we will try to get to Alta or Solitude. We will certainly eat at Stein's, I have heard a lot of good things about the lodge. Appreciate the advice.

i went to pc about ten years ago. you'll have a good time. there are lots of bars/restaurants and shops along the main strip in town next to a Mrs Fields Cookie factory. if you like gutball food, i had some great chicken fried steak at a diner on the edge of town towards The Canyons. when i was there pc had night skiing (rarity out west) and it came free if you bought a multiday lift ticket. you can get up early and ski hard in the am, take a long lunch or nap and still get in lots more ski time later. the town has a great local shuttle bus system, without a car i used it to go skiing and dining from my condo. i was a little put off by Deer Valley. it might be fun to hob nob with the rich there, but beware, it's obnoxiously expensive. if you don't have a $1000 ski suit, you'll feel like trailer park trash. like someone else said, try to go outside the pc area at least one day of your visit if you're staying more than 3 or 4 days. snowbird and alta are side by side, a 30 minute & cheap bus ride away. they have a much more alpine feel than pc. alta is famous for powder and low cost day lift tickets, snowbird is more expensive and glamorous and has an awesome tram ride. i've never been to solitude, it's farther from pc but sounds interesting.
