Yuki Yama is reinvented on Main Street.
With dozens of restaurants on Main Street alone, Park City boasts enough eateries to keep skiers trying something new each time they visit. For the diner who has (somehow) tasted every steakhouse, sushi bar and French bistro in city limits, these five restaurants offer more options for 2014:
The Bistro – Canyons Resort
Serving cuisine described as New American Kosher, The Bistro offers true kosher meals, from kid-friendly Bistro steak burgers to curry spiced lamb shank. Open Sunday through Thursday, this upscale restaurant is conveniently within walking distance of Canyons Resort. Recommended lodging: Juniper Landing
Burgers & Bourbon – Empire Pass
Deer Valley’s newest on-hill dining option offers gourmet burgers, hand-cut fries and old-fashioned milk shakes. Nestled in the Montage Deer Valley at Empire Pass, Burgers & Bourbon is a convenient spot to refuel while on the slopes. The eatery also offers a menu of signature cocktails with an extensive beer and wine list. Recommended lodging: Silver Strike
Billy Blanco’s – Jeremy Ranch
Bill White’s newest restaurant is a bit of a departure from his fine dining empire, and one best enjoyed with a hefty dose of kitsch. Billed as a “Motor City burger and taco garage,” the menu includes everything from tejano smoked beef short ribs to classic burgers. Although the restaurant is a bit of a drive from Park City proper, the chance to see choppers hanging from the ceiling is an attraction in and of itself. Recommended lodging: Red Pine Villa
Although not exactly new, the former Yuki Arashi has undergone a makeover that makes this sushi bar worth a re-visit. Chef Kirk Terashima blends Korean and Japanese cuisine by adding soups and hot plates, including black cod and lamb lollipops. Recommended lodging: Snowflake Chalet
This year enjoy a night in with Ellie Shropshire, a local chef specializing in simple, healthy fare. Try Rocky Mountain elk tenderloin, Thai chicken curry or pan-seared Utah trout in the comfort of your home. Customize your experience based on your family’s tastes. Recommended lodging: Northside Villa
For all its light, fluffy snow, blue-bird days and perfectly groomed terrain, Park City draws more than a few travelers for a completely different world-class offering — the food.
The only thing better than Park City’s food? The snow-globe setting of its restaurants.
The Utah Office of Tourism boasts that Park City, Utah features more chefs per capita than Paris, France. A walk down Main Street certainly gives the sense that Park City takes its food seriously, with cuisine ranging from Southwestern to Middle Eastern. Main Street alone is home to four Italian eateries and an equal number of quality sushi restaurants. Park City restaurants recruit chefs from Las Vegas to New York, taking pride in menus that fuse local ingredients with authentic preparation. For foodies planning a getaway to Park City this winter, we recommend turning dining into an experience with these culinary gems:
Fireside Dining – European – Start your evening with a magical sleigh ride and end it with warm bread pudding in front of a fireplace. In between, you’ll enjoy traditional Swiss raclette, fire-roasted leg of lamb and brown sugar roasted acorn squash.
Chimayo – Southwestern - Chef Arturo Flores draws on his Mexican roots to create authentic dishes that have made Chimayo a favorite among visitors who wouldn’t dream of skipping this Main Street favorite. We recommend the elk, but only after you’ve tried the queso fundido to start.
High West Saloon & Restaurant – Eclectic - Even those who profess not to love whiskey will find themselves converted by the house-made spirits at this unique saloon. Try the whiskey-infused fondue with a flight of house specialties.
SILVER – Progressive American - Dine to a live DJ, then dance afterward in this modern restaurant’s roomy lounge. The only thing better than the atmosphere at this spacious Main Street restaurant is the food.
Private Chef - Create culinary memories in your home with a meal prepared by a private chef. Choose entrees of local Morgan Valley lamb or Utah trout, and eat around your dining room table. For dessert, put an alpine twist on the traditional s’more by roasting mallows around your slope-side fire pit. Where to find a home with a fire pit? We recommend our Reserve Collection.
To plan the perfect foodie vacation, call us at 1-877-773-1117 or e-mail email@example.com. Browse our Main Street Collection for homes within walking distance of fine dining and family restaurants in downtown Park City.
Between powder-perfect slopes, newly conquered ski runs, apres-ski s’mores and impromptu snow angels at your vacation home, Park City Christmas ski vacations have their own way of creating a family’s most memorable moments. Here are five more ways to make this season’s family ski trip your most unforgettable yet:
1. Have Christmas waiting for your family when you arrive. Take advantage of Resorts West’s Holiday Memories Package and let our concierge team act as your elves. We’ll shop, ship, wrap and display gifts for you, so you can walk into a magical display, straight from Santa’s workshop. We’ll even ship gifts back home to you after your stay.
2. Visit while Santa’s in town. If your children have never seen Santa “fly” into the Town Plaza on his sleigh, make sure to cross this “bucket list” experience off your list while the kids are young enough to enjoy it. Every winter, families gather on the Plaza with hot cocoa and other holiday treats for a magical, brightly lit evening that ends with a chance to sit on Santa’s lap. Santa will make his appearance on Friday, December 14. Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. Stay at Northstar Villa, and you can enjoy all that Main Street has to offer without having to drive!
3. Stay at your dream home. A fire pit on the heated deck for holiday s’mores? A projector screen theater? Private hot tub and sauna? Make this holiday special with a home your family won’t forget. We recommend King’s Estate.
4. Splurge on Christmas dinner. Let your private concierge arrange for a chef to create the perfect holiday meal at home. Enjoy rack of lamb, raclette, homemade desserts and seasonal vegetables — all in the comfort of your home away from home. We recommend Harmony Haus.
5. Ride in a one-horse open sleigh. When else can you bring carols to life in a winter wonderland? Take your family on a magical sleigh ride before enjoying dinner at Fireside Dining, a four-fireplace culinary experience at Deer Valley Resort. Try Swiss raclette, cured meets, stews, lamb and freshly baked breads before a grand finale of kuchen and warm puddings. For easy access, we recommend staying in Empire Pass at the Ski Utah House.
With colorful lights, snow-covered slopes and shopping galore, Park City is the perfect destination to spend a magical Christmas season while sneaking in a few runs on silky smooth slopes.
For the greatest value and fewest crowds, plan your ski vacation early. Your Resorts West concierge can ship all the holiday gifts you purchase back to your residence when you leave Park City. You’ll also enjoy all of these fun early season events:
Luge World Cup (Dec. 13-14)
See future Olympians compete against the world’s best athletes. World Cup competitions at the Utah Olympic Park are free and open to the public!
Santa Comes Down Town Lift (Dec. 14)
Anyone who ever doubted that Santa can fly will be stunned to see him make this grand entrance! Families enjoy holiday treats and hot chocolate on the Town Lift Plaza before watching Santa “fly” in on a brightly lit sleigh.
Park Silly Sunday Winter Market Bazaar (Dec. 14-15)
The silliness that defines Park City in the summer will continue for two days in the winter at the Park Silly Sunday Winter Market Bazaar. Shop for unique gifts and snap a photo with Santa.

You’ve experienced Park City’s waist-high powder and world-class ski terrain in the winter — now discover the Wasatch Mountains at their most beautiful with a scenic fall escape. Quaking aspens, Canyon maple and Gambel oak add color to every mountainside, leaving foliage-seekers with a sense of peace, calm and inspiration. Here are the best places to see fall leaves in Park City:
Guardsman Pass: Likened to the Swiss Alps or a scene from The Sound of Music, Guardsman Pass offers expansive mountain-top views best enjoyed in late September or early October. Pack a picnic and explore a number of hiking trails that dot the pass.
Mid-Mountain Trail: Start from Silver Lake at Deer Valley Resort and take this shady, tree-lined trail through colorful aspen trees. End your afternoon with a gourmet lunch at the Royal Street Café, where you can dine outside to take in a final sweeping view of the mountainside.
