Park City Mountain Food Tour: Ski, Eat, Ski, Après Ski

March 11, 2017

I’m addicted to snow. I’m addicted to the mountains. And I’m addicted to being on the snow on the mountains. It’s my happy place. I even have a giant snowflake tattooed on my ribcage.

But I should be honest from the start. I’m a Utah transplant. I moved here by way of Miami, New York City, Boston, and Ft. Worth, Texas. I can’t say I’ve seen much snow, nor mountains, in my lifetime. And as far as my experience zipping along the powder’s crest—one friend’s ski trip a long time ago I faked my way down the Breckenridge slopes. (If my friends were here, they’d tell you I didn’t fake my way down any slopes—the mountain  chucked me from peak to base.) But since moving to Utah four years ago—I can’t imagine life without my snow peaked western skyscrapers.

Maybe it’s because I feel like I’m playing catch-up, but I take my time on the mountain very seriously. I’m a first chair / last chair kind of skier. I catch powder flu often. And my favorite pair of shoes are my ski boots. It’s not often friends can convince me to take food, rest or potty breaks. Even riding the chair lift between runs is an unnecessary waste of precious fresh tracks to cut.

But then I found out about Park City Mountain‘s abundance of food options. (I almost love to eat as much as I love to ski.) Overseen by Dining Executive Chef Alex Malmborg, Park City Mountain ski resort has 14 on mountain food spots to pick from and that doesn’t even include all the great restaurants surrounding the lifts at the base. Be it nibbles in the morning, lunch on the mountain or après ski you could eat your way across the resort. (But be careful with so many options your calorie gain might beat your vertical gain.)
