Ski Park City for a Fabulous Experience–Top 10 things To Do

BY MEREDITH ROSENBERG, Travel Channel

Ski Park City, UT for fabulous snow and more! Sundance 2017 will soon be underway, but they’re not the only reasons to visit this one-time silver mining town. Depending on the time of year, add art galleries, horseback riding and shopping to your next Park City trip.
Dining

Riverhorse on Main is arguably not just one of the best restaurants in Park City, but one of the best in the country. The buttery soft, macadamia-nut-crusted Alaskan halibut is a signature dish, and you’ll regret it if you don’t order it. Other standouts include the poached pear and burrata salad with figs and dates. There’s even a separate vegan and gluten-free menu, and the crispy tofu entrée in sweet chili sauce with a ginger citrus relish will instantly convert any skeptics. If it’s available, order the blueberry cobbler, filled with Maine blueberries, for dessert. The restaurant is also opening Riverhorse Provisions, an upscale market with a café and coffee shop located in the Imperial Hotel. It’s tentatively scheduled to open Thanksgiving week. Don’t leave Main Street before popping into Atticus Coffee, Books & Teahouse for a yerba mate latte, red velvet mocha, smoothies or healthy eats while browsing the used book selection. Other area favorites are Handle for New American small plates, and Glitretind at the Stein Eriksen Lodge. Since it’s located at a ski-in/ski-out resort, Glitretind is ideal after working up an appetite on the slopes—especially the beloved Sunday brunch buffet.

Nightlife

Park City has plentiful apres-ski options for night owls. Start the evening by catching a performance at the Egyptian Theater on Main Street; tickets are still available for the Village People in January! Nearby, Park City Live hosts musical acts from Lil Jon to Elephant Revival. Keep the party going at High West Distillery’s saloon on Main Street, the state’s first distillery since the 19th century. Order the popular (and perfectly balanced) High West Lemonade, or a smoky Campfire Whiskey while kicking back to live music. (Limited-edition varieties such as Bourye or Yippee Ki-Yay are other musts.) Bonus: As the world’s only ski-in distillery, you don’t have to waste any time segueing into evening festivities. Cap the night at OP Rockwell for inventive craft cocktails, indie concerts and a Wild West speakeasy vibe.

Spas
For those seeking every amenity possible, Spa Montage Deer Valley is loaded with a lap pool, saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools, a full-service salon, fitness center and more. Oh, and don’t worry about it feeling too crowded, since the spa is a sprawling 35,000 square feet. If you’re feeling the effects of functioning above 7,000 feet, opt for the altitude therapy service, which includes bathing in oxygen-rich water and a massage. Not to be outdone, the Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge is Utah’s only five-star spa, and offers an oxygen inhalation treatment. Beyond what can be found at Spa Montage, Stein Eriksen offers a heated outdoor pool, hot and cold plunge pools, and exceptional attention to detail, from disposable toothbrushes in locker rooms to plush, hooded spa robes. (If you’re lucky enough to stay on property, some rooms even boast an outdoor hot tub.) For the days when you simply require a solid massage or skin-clearing facial, Aura Spa & Boutique on Main Street delivers without sacrificing ambience. Align Spa is another affordable option, and also provides acupuncture, cupping, chiropractor services and more.
