Cabriolets, Gondolas, Orange Bubbles, and Food?

Variety and quality define Park City Main Street’s award-wining dining options. What happens when a ski resort tries to give Park City’s Main Street a run for its money? Canyons Resort happens.

Don’t be fooled by the buzz surrounding Canyons Resort’s new orange bubble chairlift, the actual buzz should be around Canyons Resort’s 15 restaurants run by the Talisker Restaurant Collection where “distinctive mountain cuisine awaits.” From on-slope grills to refined dining, there are endless options for the foodie, the family, and the fun seeker.

Traditional cafeteria-style dining options like the Red Pine Lodge (open daily from 8:30 AM to 4 PM during the winter season) have everything from chili cheese dogs, to burgers, to an outstanding meatloaf sandwich. These classics will keep any family happy with the option to take the Red Pine Gondola up to it for any non-skiers who want to meet for lunch. There is also the added bonus of the Red Pine Draft House upstairs offering local and domestic beers on draft for those who can’t wait for their après ski drink.

For those who have the patience to wait for the quintessential après ski drink head down to the resort village and check out Umbrella Bar. Located across from the Cabriolet lift you do not need a lift ticket to access this unique 360 degree glass restaurant. It’s great for a quick bite and even better for après ski. Sun or snow, Umbrella Bar is always busy and has that gastro pub feel perfect for recovering after a long day on the slopes.

Then there is The Farm. Food critics are raving about this newer establishment and its mission to use locally grown foods that do not expand beyond a 200-mile radius of Park City. Not only does the food standout, but the wine list makes for outstanding pairings with every meal. The genius behind this force to be reckoned with is John Murcko who won Best Chef in Salt Lake Magazine’s 2011 Dining Awards. Its new American Cuisine includes Murcko’s specialty pulled pork corndogs and a grilled-to-order Summit County Beef rib-eye. The Farm partners with Summit County ranchers to raise cattle for such dishes. These practices are what make The Farm Canyon Resort’s new signature restaurant.

The above three dining options are only the tip of Canyon Resort’s food iceberg. The variety and quality can compete with any resort let alone resort town restaurant. To learn more about Canyon Resort’s “mountain cuisine” visit
