Where to Après on Opening Day


Wax your skis, tighten your bindings and prep your stomach, this week kicks off the 2019/2020 ski season at Park City Mountain Resort, and we’re here to keep you fueled long after the lifts stop spinning, because après is just as important on opening day.

To kick off the season, we’ve rounded up our five favorite spots to eat, chat and savor the hours after your last run. Whether your craving land, sea, salad or pie, we’ve got a hot spot serving up flavorful meals to keep you full, at least until they roll out the s’mores.

The Shroom, Versante Health + Bar, Peaks Hotel

Versante The Shroom

Over the golf course and behind the trees is the Peaks Hotel’s in-house restaurant, Versante Health + Bar, serving up gourmet pies, like The Shroom. Choose from original, gluten-free or cauliflower crust and invite your friends to share a slice filled with wild and exotic mushrooms, mustard sauce, broccolini, mozzarella and a salty finish of Parmesan.

Triple S Burger, Boneyard Saloon

Just off piste of main street is the Boneyard Triple S Burger, their signature seven ounce, triple beef blend with bacon, fried jalapeños, butter lettuce, pickled red onions, bleu cheese crumbles, house pickles and finished with their garlic aioli and Boneyard Triple S Sauce served on a potato bun. And yes, it comes with fries.

Shakespeare Salad, Atticus Coffee & Teahouse

Atticus Shakespeare Salad

For something light and healthy, check out Atticus for their Shakespeare Salad: filled with mixed greens, avocado, shredded carrots and beets, sprouts, caramelized walnuts, crumbled feta and a house-made balsamic dressing. While you’re at it, throw in one of their amazing biscotti to seal the deal, and a hot tea for the road.

Honey Roll, Shabu

Hop off those groomers and enjoy a moment at sea with Shabu’s Honey Roll, filled with tempura shrimp, avocado, cucumber, sriracha and topped with hamachi, albacore, lime and their fried crunchies. Did we mention it’s drizzled with eel sauce and pure honey? Oh, you fancy huh?

Spicy Lobster Sliders, Freshies

Freshies Sliders

If you’re heading out of town, stop by Freshies and eat like a local. Their spicy lobster sliders, served in pairs, boast two and a half ounces of lobster per bun and are served with sriracha aioli, guacamole and roasted red peppers. We’ll take six please.
