Shoulder Season Is A Thing Of The Past


We are chasing the ever-illusive shoulder season here in Park City, and I am beginning to think it’s the ultimate unicorn. Gone are the days of Park City’s peaceful six weeks when collectively the town takes a big deep breath and readies itself for the upcoming ski season. The last chance to hit the trails, head south to Powell or Moab and catch the last rays of an Indian Summer.

Luckily you can now have your cake and eat it too. Go ahead and bask in the wonders of a mountain autumn, take advantage of the warm days and cool nights to check off a few more trails on your bucket list. Then head on over to one of the amazing restaurants in Park City open for your pleasure. Below is a list curated by Park City Area Restaurant Association of restaurants open or modified for the shoulder season. We added the photos to whet your appetite!
