Park City resort information & après-ski
The après-ski bar scene in Park City is busy, and not tempered by Utah’s strict and confusing drinking laws – as long as you are either a guest of a local, buy food with your drink, or become a temporary member of the bar.
Main Street is where the action is. The No Name Saloon (tel: +1 435 649 6667; www.nonamesaloon.net) is good for lively, beer-swilling fun; while the Wasatch Brew Pub (tel: +1 435 649 0900; www.wasatchbeers.com) is a little calmer. Later in the evening, Park City Live (tel: +1 435 649 9123; www.parkcitylive.net), a hip dance club, is the place to be.
When it comes to dining, Park City and Deer Valley offer flair and fun. There are around 100 choices, from cheap and cheerful cafés to fine dining restaurants.
Try the Blind Dog (tel: +1 435 655 0800; www.blinddogpc.com) for an eclectic take on seafood and steak. Alternatively, sample Alpine dishes at the Goldener Hirsch (tel: +1 435 649 7770; www.goldenerhirschinn.com) or opt for gourmet fare at Apex in the Montage Deer Valley resort (tel: +1 435 604 1300; www.montagedeervalley.com).
A more unusual night out involves a five-course dinner in the cosy Viking Yurt (tel: +1 435 615 9878; www.vikingyurt.com), accessible via a sleigh ride up on the slopes.
