Park City named one of the 'most stunning' mountain locations in the nation - Deseret News

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Aug 02, 2017

Scott Cramer - Dusk View of Park City Glowing. Scenic village from above with cool blue dusk light and glowing warm lights. Dusk View of Park City Glowing, a hotel and travel information website, just ranked the “most stunning” mountain travel spots across the country.

And Park City made the list.

The list showed off popular and “stunning mountain destinations” that aren’t near major cities.

Rather, the list displays places travelers will need to visit on their own.

“Not all of us have the pleasure of living in major U.S. cities like Seattle, Denver, and Los Angeles, where mountain views are a part of the daily routine,” the list’s description reads. “Most of us will have to travel to get our fill of these scenic natural creations, which were formed as a result of Earth's tectonic plates smashing together.”

The list doesn’t include a numbered ranking.

Park City sits toward the middle of the list. celebrates the city’s proximity to the Salt Lake City International Airport and “its legendary powder skiing.”

“While you're in town, head for Main Street, which is lined with 19th-century buildings that were built during the silver mining boom. Park City residents also support the arts with indoor and outdoor music venues, while the town hosts the Sundance Film Festival each January,” the Park City description reads.

Tullruide, Colorado, also made the list as an alternative mountain destination to Denver.

The list also includes spots such as Yosemite, California; Taos, New Mexico; and Stowe, Vermont.

Travel and Leisure previously gave Park City the No. 1 spot for top mountain towns.

The survey results were based off reader responses, which answered questions about travelers’ favorite spots. Readers were also asked to rank locations on affordability, restaurants and public parks.

Readers most enjoyed the city’s galleries, restaurants and theaters.

Park City ranked ahead of Taos and Asheville on that list.

“When the local mines closed, Park City, Utah, turned its ambitions above ground — to its 7,000 acres of Olympic-level ski terrain — helping it transition into one of the country’s premier resort destinations, and this year’s favorite mountain town,” according to Travel and Leisure.

In unrelated rankings, Park City also topped a USA Today list for its s’mores.

How to Experience Heber Valley's Luxurious Side - By Jenna Herzog

How to Experience Heber Valley's Luxurious Side, by Park City, UT
Heber Valley makes the perfect setting for a scenic and luxurious getaway.
Heber Valley makes the perfect setting for a scenic and luxurious getaway.

Approximately 40 miles from the bustle of Salt Lake City lies the hidden gem of Heber Valley. Nestled in the foothills of the impressive Wasatch Mountains and brimming with opportunities for year-round recreation, cozy lodging, and elegant dining, Heber Valley makes the perfect setting for a scenic and luxurious getaway.

Day 1

Whether planning a summer escape or a snowy winter vacation, the St. Regis Hotel at Deer Valley puts visitors within close reach of all that Heber Valley has to offer. With an ideal location in Park City at the base of the Deer Valley Resort, guests can head straight to the ski slopes in the winter, or the mountain biking and hiking trails in the summer. No matter what time of year, the St. Regis is known for its dining, exceptional spa, luxurious rooms and suites, and awe-inspiring mountain views. (For a complete guide to Heber Valley lodging options, click here).

Planning the perfect weekend in Heber Valley is all about tailoring your days around the activities of your choosing. Winter visitors at St. Regis will have ski-in, ski-out access to the slopes of Deer Valley Resort, which boasts 2,026 acres of groomed trails and more chairlifts than any other resort in Utah. Guests looking to mix it up can drive two minutes up the road to Park City Mountain Resort, where both skiers and snowboarders are welcome to enjoy the largest skiable terrain in the United States, featuring more than 300 trails.

Meanwhile, summer in Heber Valley offers opportunities for for many activities, including hiking, biking, fishing, boating, golfing, and simply relaxing by the mountains. Head to Deer Creek State Park for some of the state’s best fishing prospects, as well as boating, sailing, windsurfing, and swimming in the mountain-ringed Deer Creek Reservoir. Jordanelle State Park, situated along the Jordanelle Reservoir outside of Heber City, provides another great option for those looking to take a dip in the water or cast a fishing line.

Golfers will be in paradise in Heber Valley, with five award-winning golf courses to choose from, each boasting incredible mountain scenery. Just north of the town of Midway, Wasatch Mountain State Park features two golf courses: the gentler Lake Course and the more challenging Mountain Course, both carved right into the mountain and marked by pleasantly cool summer temperatures.

The Wasatch Range is also home to two golf courses at Soldier Hollow, where golfers are treated to spectacular views of Heber Valley down below. In the valley itself is another beautiful golf course, Crater Springs, an 18-hole championship course that nestled between the mountains. You’ll also find dining options for the whole family, ranging from casual sandwiches to Simon’s Restaurant, which features classic American fare made with fresh, local ingredients.

After a day spent on the slopes, by the water, or out on the golf course, savor the farm-to-table cuisine and excellent wine selection at St. Regis Deer Valley’s J&G Grill. Sample fresh meats, fish and salads from the menu designed by famous chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and sip a glass of wine, craft beer, or a specialty cocktail all while taking in the mountain views through the floor-to-ceiling windows. For the true wine aficionado, spend the evening in the St. Regis Wine Vault tasting from its cellar of more than 14,000 bottles.

Day 2

The next day, save time for the most unique experience Heber Valley has to offer: Homestead Crater. Located in the town of Midway, this geothermal spring is enclosed by 55-foot tall limestone walls and stays within a perfect temperature range of 90 to 96 degrees Fahrenheit every day of the year. The crater’s opening brings in fresh air and a stream of sunlight, making Homestead Crater an ideal setting for a mineral-water soak, scuba diving, snorkeling, or a guided paddleboard yoga session.

Visitors enter the crater through the rock tunnel constructed from the ground level of the property, then walk down to the wooden decks alongside the spring for easy access to the water. Bring a bathing suit for a therapeutic soak in the spring, or rent snorkeling equipment to explore beneath the surface. Experienced scuba divers can enjoy the warm waters on their own, while those interested in taking lessons and getting certified can do so in Homestead Crater as well.

After visiting Homestead Crater, indulge in an equally unique dining experience at the Blue Boar Inn & Restaurant in Midway. This one-of-a-kind restaurant has earned an exceptionally high Zagat rating of 26, as well as the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence. With an elegant combination of classic European and American styles, the ambiance of the Blue Boar Inn sets the scene for five-star cuisine. Executive Chef Eric May mirrors this European and American fusion with the three-course menu, which changes seasonally to feature the freshest ingredients and herbs from the Inn’s garden. Enjoy your evening in the formal dining room or al fresco on the restaurant’s Hinterhof outdoor patio in the summer.

Park City’s food scene continues to evolve and grow, adding a different spice to a town once known for being a mecca specifically for outdoor enthusiasts.  With its variety of flavors, Park City’s restaurants truly have something for everyone – regardless of taste.  In addition to a long list of new eateries, some of the Park City favorites have redone their spaces and menus as well.

FIREWOOD ON MAIN Firewood brings unique and interesting flavors to Park City’s Historic Main Street, as it is committed to serving a menu cooked entirely by firewood.  The menu’s bold flavors pair well with the restaurant’s luxurious and rich, yet welcoming environment. Firewood opened in mid-December of 2016 and serves dinner from 5:30-9:30 PM Sunday-Thursday, and from 5:30-10:00 PM Friday and Saturday.

FIVE5EEDS After opening its doors in December of 2016, Five5eeds has kept with its motto of Great Food. Serious Coffee. The café utilizes seasonal and local ingredients to create delicious, Australian-inspired dishes, and an exceptional restaurant environment.  A delicious option for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or a quick treat, Five5eeds is open seven days a week from 7:30 AM-3:00 PM.

FRESHIES LOBSTER CO. Fresh Maine lobster… in Utah? Freshies Lobster Co. promises its customers lobster that arrives from the Maine shore to the Utah store in 24 hours. Freshies was established in 2009 with a food truck that they set up at the Park Silly Sunday Market and area farmers markets, and in December 2016 opened a café on Prospector Drive.  The café menu not only features their classic lobster rolls, but has soups, salads, and sandwiches, too! Open Monday-Saturday from 11:00 AM-8:00 PM and Sunday from 11:00 AM-3:00 PM, you can now satisfy your craving for an authentic Maine lobster roll seven days a week.

HARVEST CAFÉ A quaint café located near the bottom of Historic Main Street, Harvest’s menu includes Australian-inspired breakfast, lunch, and tasty coffee.  Harvest Café opened its doors in mid-November 2016 with fresh, simple decor, and fantastic natural light. The eatery prides itself on serving food and drinks that provide big tastes and flavors, while using seasonal ingredients and creativity.  Open from 8:00 AM-3:00 PM, seven days a week, Harvest Café is a must-stop for breakfast, brunch, or lunch.

RIVERHORSE PROVISIONS Riverhorse on Main, one of Park City’s fine dining favorites, recently opened its own provisions shop at the top of Historic Main Street.  Since opening its doors at the end of December 2016, Riverhorse Provisions has impressed visitors and locals alike with its variety of artisan grocery products, dine-in, take out, and prepared meal options. “Accessible gourmet on Main,” available for breakfast, lunch, après-ski (and any of your other needs!) seven days a week from 7:30 AM-7:00 PM.

VERSANTE HEARTH + BAR Located in the newly remodeled Park City Peaks Hotel, Versante Hearth + Bar opened its doors in the beginning of January 2017.  A great, casual addition to Park City’s culinary scene, Versante’s menu offers a variety of American and Italian-style favorites, including flatbread pizza, pasta, craft beer, and specialty cocktails – all at a great price point, too! Versante is open daily from 3:00 PM-12:00 AM, making it great option for après-ski.

RESTAURANT UPDATES: THE SPUR BAR AND GRILL An old Park City favorite with a brand new look, the Spur Bar and Grill recently renovated and expanded their space. A popular spot for live music and dancing, the Spur’s space (formerly accessible via an alleyway) now sits directly on Historic Main Street with an upstairs balcony and oversized windows that offer expansive views. Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, and dancing, the Spur is a go-to option for visitors and locals alike. Open from 10:00 PM-1:00 AM daily.

EATING ESTABLISHMENT Eating Establishment, located at the top of Historic Main Street, revamped in the fall of 2016 and has a new look along with a new menu. Eating Establishment has been open since 1972, making it the oldest continuously open restaurant in Park City. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the new space features a cozy dining room, breakfast counter, and a brand new bar offering classic cocktails. Perhaps also notable – Eating Establishment is partially-owned by actor Ty Burrell, who plays dad of three on Modern Family.  Open seven days a week from 8:00 AM-10:00 PM Friday-Sunday and 8:00 AM-3:00 PM, 5:00-10:00 PM Monday-Thursday.

The Sundance Film Festival is one of the most popular times to visit Park City. Park City, Utah, is a special place any time you visit. But there are certain events that come along each year that make it an extraordinary place to visit. Whether it’s the Torchlight Parade on Christmas Eve, the country’s most popular film festival, or a lung-burning mountain bike race, you’ll find events throughout the year that give you even more reasons to visit Park City. Here are nine annual events that keep people coming back every year.

1. SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL RR - Events, Snowboarding The action may be inside during the Sundance Film Fesitval, but that means you'll get much of the mountains to yourself.  Locals and longtime visitors to Park City have gotten used to the fact that for 10 days at the end of January, Hollywood takes over and paints the town black. During this time, lodging options are booked out in advance at the highest rates, and you will likely have a snowball’s chance of getting a table at a local restaurant or après hot spot. But it’s not a complete takeover: Locals know it’s usually one of the best times to ski. For one thing, it’s the right time of year when the Wasatch storm cycles really start dropping the white stuff on the peaks of Deer Valley and Park City Mountain resorts. Look for lodging out by Redstone and Kimball Junction like the Newpark Hotel. Think of the public bus system as a giant Uber that will drop you off at the mountains. Once you make it to the slopes, you’ll be thinking “where is everyone?” Plus, if you want to take in a movie or go people watching in downtown Park City, it’s all there for you. This year the festival takes place from January 19 to 29, 2017.


The Park City Point 2 Point mountain bike race started out as a single long ride through many of the area’s choicest cuts of singletrack trail, until inspiration hit founder Jay Burke with the idea that it would make a killer race event. The epic Labor Day event is 75 miles long and includes 12,000 vertical feet of climbing and descending. Yes, you’ll spend the better part of a year training for the race, but it will be worth the effort. The trail riding is spectacular, but it’s the community of participants that make this event so special. You just need to mark your calendar for February 15, 2017, which is when online registration opens for the 9th edition of this ride. It will sell out the limited number of spots in minutes.

3. TOUR OF UTAH RR- Events, Tour of Utah The Tour of Utah is one of the top road races in the country.  For road cyclists, the Tour of Utah is the top race in the state, and one of the best stage races in the country. The demanding, weeklong event travels across Utah, with the final stage and finish often in Park City. Spectators will find an all-day festival on historic Main Street to enjoy as the riders take on the final 78-mile stage that includes 7,883 feet in elevation changes, including the infamous climb of Empire Pass. The event begins on August 1 and finishes on August 7.

4. AUTUMN ALOFT RR - Autumn Aloft Look to the skies of Park City for the Autumn Aloft festival.  Each September, those in the hot-air balloon community—and those who enjoy the spectacle—come to Park City for the Autumn Aloft festival. The event is free to spectators, who can arrive in the morning to watch the launch or check out the evening balloon glow, where tethered balloons light up the night sky. The sight of the balloons soaring over the mountains in the fall makes this one of the best weekends to visit Park City.

5. THIN AIR INNOVATION FESTIVAL RR - Thin Air Festival The Thin Air Innovation Festival brings thought leaders to Park City. The Thin Air Innovation Festival is a newcomer to this bucket list, but the inaugural event held in 2016 was so successful, we think it will be around for years to come. It takes place in early to mid April, right about the last week the resorts are open in Park City. It’s a think-tank style event that combines engaging speakers and panels, with every year having a new theme to center on. The event is structured in a way that companies and groups can bring their meetings and “bolt-on” to what Thin Air offers, but it’s also open to curious individuals and entrepreneurs who want to network, learn something new, and engage with current thought leaders—and maybe write off a spring ski trip as a business expense. It’s capped off with an open air street concert on lower Main Street. The 2017 event takes place from April 5-7.

6. FREESTYLE WORLD CUP The best freestyle skiers in the world will be coming to Deer Valley for the FIS Freestyle World Cup—and you can watch their incredible acrobatic skill on the mountain. Using the same venue and runs as in the 2002 Olympics, competitors will be under the lights for this nighttime event that features a party atmosphere. Taking place from Feb. 1-4 (and airing on NBC), the competition will feature men’s and women’s aerial events on Friday night, with men’s and women’s moguls and dual moguls on Thursday and Saturday night. After the conclusion of the finals each night, stick around for a fireworks display.

7. KIMBALL ARTS FESTIVAL RR - Kimball Arts Festival The Kimball Arts Festival brings artists from all over the country to Park City.  This year, the Kimball Arts Festival celebrates its 48th anniversary of bringing artists to downtown Park City to display and sell their creations. You’ll find artwork in 12 different categories—from drawings, paintings, and photography to glass and wood creations—and the weekend is filled with cultural events to accompany the festival. In addition to the more than 200 artists in town, visitors will find live music, kids activities, fashion shows, dance exhibitions, and yoga classes. The Festival After Dark keeps the entertainment going into the night, with movie screenings and musical performances in Deer Valley’s Snow Park Amphitheater. The 2017 event takes place from August 4-6.


For more than 50 years, Christmas Eve in Park City has meant the Torchlight Parade. The annual tradition starts in the plaza of the Park City Mountain Resort, with live music, coffee, and hot cocoa. The crowd then moves to the base of the mountain and watches resort staff ski down the PayDay run while carrying red torchlights, creating a spectacle that’s not to be missed. This holiday tradition continues this year on December 24.

9. PARK CITY FOOD AND WINE CLASSIC RR - Park City Food and Wine The town is filled with wine lovers for the Park City Food and Wine Classic.  At the Park City Food and Wine Classic, food and wine lovers get a chance to meet some of the top tastemakers in the country. You’ll find winemakers, vineyard owners, and master sommeliers all discussing their favorites, while some of the country’s top chefs will preparing the perfect dishes to pair with your finds. The festival is filled with opportunities for tasting, as well as special events that pair outdoor activities in Park City with food and wine. Spend the morning mountain biking before enjoying a gourmet lunch with the perfect wine pairing. Take a class in preparing ceviche from a master chef, or simply stroll around the city sampling the incredible offerings. This year’s festival will be held from July 6-9, 2017.

5 Things Every East Coast Skier Should Know About West Coast Skiing

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Mar 22, 2017

By: Jordi Lippe-McGraw

Growing up I was privileged enough to take annual ski trips with my family. Our go-to spot was Killington, Vermont, and I have very fond memories of hitting the slopes with my dad, enjoying family meals by the fire, and taking a dip in the hot tub. But, aside the occasional side trip to upstate New York or Connecticut, this was the only skiing I ever knew. That was until I took my first West Coast ski trip to Park City, Utah.

After hearing about the record snow fall the area got this year (and the lack of snow New York got), I decided to book a quick three-day getaway to the famous resort area. My assumptions were it would be pretty much the same as east coast skiing, so I should know what to expect. Right? Boy, was I wrong.

Here are five things every east coast skier should know about west coast skiing.


1. The Snow Is Scientifically Proven To Be The Best

Utah’s license plates proudly display the saying, “The Greatest Snow on Earth.” In fact, it’s even trademarked. While many will argue that spots like Colorado have the best skiing conditions, a number of Utah scientists and meteorologists over the years have done their research and make a compelling argument for their state.

“The secret of Utah’s unique and wonderful powder is the structure of the individual snow crystals,” said William Alde, retired chief meteorologist for the National Weather Service’s Salt Lake City office. “Under cold, relatively dry conditions, light crystal-type snowflakes called dendrites are produced. These snowflakes are thin and symmetrical in shape, and they float down through the cold atmosphere, accumulating like fluffy down or powder on Utah mountains.”

I’m not a scientist, but what I can tell you is that the conditions on the mountain were considerably better than what I was used to back east. Instead of dodging ice patches, I was able to actually get that floating feeling described by the experts making for a smoother (less terrifying) run.

2. Gourmet Meals Are The Norm At Ski Lodges

Whenever I would stop for a lunch break while on a family ski trip my options were typically a barely tolerable sandwich or lukewarm pizza. If I was lucky, a cup of instant hot chocolate would be an added treat. That is certainly not the case at any of the Park City resorts.

Over my three days in town, I skied Deer Valley, Canyons Village and Park City Mountain, all of which had some of the most delicious food ever. For lunch in Deer Valley, I enjoyed Artisan Fleur de Neige Flatbread with house made local sheep’s milk cheese at Royal Street Café. Back at Park City’s Cloud Dine on top of the mountain, a chef took about seven minutes to handcraft an Asian chicken salad and the hot chocolate was reminiscent of that from Angelina in Paris. Oh, and did I mention I never took my ski boots off?

The après ski situation was just as good, if not better. At the bottom of slope at Canyons Village a restaurant called The Farm served up a butternut squash cocktail and a macaroni-and-cheese version of spätzle complete with Oregon truffles. And The Mariposa at Silver Lake Lodge had a cheese plate consisting entirely of locally-made cheese by their in-house Belgium cheese maker.

I don’t know about you, but any place that will immediately reward my outdoor activities with delicious food has my vote.

3. The Hotel Rooms Are Basically Luxury Homes

While clearly I did not stay in every hotel in Park City, what I do know is I would happily call the one I did stay at home. The Hyatt Centric is one of the newer properties in the area having just been redone in the last year or so, but I expected to walk in and find a pretty standard hotel room. Again, I was sorely mistaken.

The room turned out to be a home with a kitchen I could do laps in (and I did), an upstairs loft (which I never ended up using), and had two bathrooms and two fireplaces (I used all of them). And it was decorated with little cozy hints of the area like a Utah-shaped pillow and pictures from local artists. It truly was a warm and homey place to come back to after a long day on the slopes.

Though I didn’t get to visit any other properties during my stay, I have heard from others who visited that places like the St. Regis, Montage Deer Valley, Stein Eriksen Lodge and the Waldorf Astoria are all luxurious in their own right.

4. It’s Not Miserably Cold On The Slopes

As a child and teen, I have vivid memories of my toes being completely numb after two runs on the slope. Most of my time was spent thawing out from the frigid temperatures and figuring just how many layers I needed so not even a centimeter of skin was showing. I feared it would be the same this time around as well. Again, I was wrong (sensing a theme yet?).

You know how being in the desert is often more tolerable than the tropics even if it’s hotter? It’s much easier to handle dry heat than it is wet. The same holds true for cold. Though the temperatures were below freezing and we did have to deal with some strong winds one day, I never once felt cold because the air was so dry. Yes, I had to use excessive amount of lotion and lip balm because of it, but not once did my toes go numb.

In fact, I was so comfortable, that I skied for the longest period of time ever in my whole life clocking in about five hours straight one day. Oh, but if you do get cold on the slopes, there’s a heated chairlift at the Canyons Village to warm you up between runs.

5. You Can Ski All Day Without Doing The Same Trail Twice

The scale of the mountains in Park City was something I was not prepared for. I am by no means a skiing aficionado and am intermediate level at best, so I’m happy sticking to the same green circle and blue square trails and doing them a few times. That was actually really my only option growing up and is likely why my ski days would end around lunch time (and the fact I couldn’t feel my feet by that point).

Out west, it feels like you are skiing across the state with the number of options of trails. While the trails were slightly more difficult than I was accustom to overall, I was amazed that after a few hours of skiing our guide would point where we started and it was miles away. Park City Mountain realized the extent of their property and even started to offer Peak To Peak Guided Ski Experiences where a ski instructor will take you on an all-day tour of the 7,300 acres. You can literally ski out of your hotel in the morning and on to the main street in Park City by evening without ever doing the same run twice.

5 Places To Visit In The U.S. In 2017

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Mar 15, 2017


Here are 5 U.S. destinations that look especially fetching right now, thanks to new hotel and restaurant openings, special cultural events and big anniversaries.


In spring, the first Honolulu Biennial will bring international artists to show works alongside local artists.In 2016 the Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina opened, as did the Surfjack Hotel and Swim Club in Waikiki. In the Chinatown district of Honolulu, the new Tchin Tchin! is a rooftop bar and small-plates eatery. Also in Honolulu, there’s SALT at Our Kaka’ako, a recently opened collection of eateries and shops. And don’t overlook the 15th Waikiki Spam Jam on April 29, a street festival that features Spam dishes from local restaurants, live music and related merriment.


Park City is 45 minutes from the Salt Lake City airport. It has an old-fashioned Main Street and the biggest ski resort in the country: Park City Mountain Resort, which combined with Canyons Resort in 2015, setting off changes all over town.

Chef John Murcko’s Firewood Restaurant opened in December on Main Street. Down the road, visitors can browse landscape photos at David Beavis Gallery, caffeinate at Pink Elephant Coffee Roasters, get a sugar fix at Peace, Love & Little Donuts or taste wine at Old Town Cellars, a private-label winery. (All opened in 2016.) But think twice before booking Jan. 19–29. Those are the 2017 Sundance Film Festival dates.


The 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love is coming, and San Francisco ventures such as the Magic Bus (which does ’60s-themed local tours), San Francisco Love Tours (which uses VW buses with psychedelic paint jobs) and Flower Power Walking Tours will make the most of it in Haight-Ashbury and beyond. Find Jimi Hendrix’s old place on Haight Street (the apartment, above a tobacco shop, is a private residence), and the North Beach coffee shop where Janis Joplin did some singing. Now it’s Maggie McGarry’s Irish Pub, and there’s more singing than ever.Various street fairs are in the works, including one in Haight-Ashbury in June, and ’60s-themed exhibitions are planned at the California Historical Society, the De Young Museum, the Berkeley Art Museum and San Francisco City Hall. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art will still be celebrating its May 2016 expansion.


All the usual reasons to visit apply, plus this: In early summer, rangers will reopen the park’s Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias, home to about 500 of California’s biggest trees. During the grove’s two-year closure, the National Park Service added hiking trails and boardwalks, upgraded toilets, removed a gift shop and rerouted tram traffic.


Boston is booming, adding restaurants and lodgings even as a commemorative note sounds: May 29 marks the centennial of the birth of favorite son John F. Kennedy. Expect special programming at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, and Kennedy’s birthplace in Brookline (a Boston suburb), now known as John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site. Meanwhile, the Godfrey Hotel Boston, a luxury boutique lodging in the Downtown Crossing area, opened in early 2016, as did Aloft and Element hotels on near the city convention center. A 326-room Yotel micro-hotel is due to open this year in Boston’s Seaport Innovation District.

Kid-Friendly Dining in Park City

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Feb 27, 2017

It’s no secret that there are a lot of places to get good food in Park City, it’s a little harder to tell which ones are kid-friendly. Park City is a pretty casual town, but you’ll find a mix of casual to upscale dining. If your kids are anything like mine, pizza and macaroni and cheese are the only safe bets, but I also know there are kids that are a lot more adventurous eaters than my 2-year-old.

Since pizza is always a safe bet, I’m going to start with that:

Red Banjo Pizza is Park City’s oldest restaurant. It opened in 1962 and is still running strong. They have pizza and sandwiches sure to fill you up. They also have pizza by the slice lunch specials and delivery if you are staying in town.

Davanza’s is a local favorite. They have a mix of pizza, burgers, tacos, and fried food that will hit the spot after a hard day of skiing.

Vinto is on lower Main Street and my final pizza recommendation. It’s a little more upscale than the other two but still very casual. They offer a variety of wood-fired pizza, pasta, paninis, and salads….and a good selection of gelato to finish off your meal.

Now onto everything that isn’t pizza:

The Bridge Café and Grill is right next to Town Lift so a great place to start your day and grab breakfast or lunch. Traditional breakfast is served all day, and then for lunch, they have soup, salads, sandwiches, and burgers with added Brazilian flair.

Back Door Delicatessen is right on the corner of Swede Alley and Heber Avenue near the 4-way stop. They’re only open for lunch but worth a mid-day stop for great sandwiches that everyone will love.

The Eating Establishment is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s a casual atmosphere with a wide variety of food that includes soup, salads, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, and seafood, so there is sure to be something for everyone.

Wasatch Brew Pub is the first brewpub to open in the state of Utah. And, it’s also very kid friendly. With traditional pub fare, you’ll all enjoy the night out for dinner.

Bandits’ Grill & Bar meets all of your BBQ needs. Good sandwiches and BBQ plates. And I have to say that I’m a big fan of their fried pickles, zucchini, and onion rings.

Zoom is Robert Redford’s restaurant and definitely more of a dining experience. If you were to just walk by you may not guess that they have a great kids menu to go along with a great dinner for you, but it’s a great option.

High West Distillery makes some of the best whiskey around and also makes some of the best food in town. It is our go-to when we are eating in town; I never get sick of it. Their macaroni and cheese is so good; it’s one of those kids’ meals that I am happy to pick at after I finish my dinner.

Those are just a few recommendations that everyone in the family will be happy with. Hopefully it helps get you started in the never-ending “what should we eat for dinner” conversation. But keep in mind, that Park City is a pretty casual town and you know your kids better than anyone so as long as it’s not a bar, they are welcome to join you anywhere. And if all else fails, you can always grab ice cream at Cow’s as you are wandering around town. I haven’t met a kid that doesn’t like dessert for dinner.

Park City's Best-kept Dining Secret

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Feb 13, 2016

The scene: Last week the celebrities and paparazzi descended on Park City for the annual Hollywood extravaganza known as the Sundance Film Festival. Now that they have gone, Park City returns to its normal clientele: skiers, snowboarders, cyclists, hikers and nature lovers. Easily reached from Salt Lake City, the longtime ski town is an increasingly year-round vacation destination, and has been in the limelight a lot lately, with new hotels, a new golf course and most of all, the largest ski resort in the United States, which opened here earlier this winter. There are lots of good reasons to visit Park City, but one of the best-kept secrets among them is the Silver Star Cafe, wildly popular with locals and worth seeking out.

One reason the restaurant has remained off the tourist radar is its location, in the plaza at the base of Park City ski resort’s Silver Star lift. The lift is one of the less-used lifts at the huge resort, serving mainly homeowners in the development where the slopeside eatery is located. This makes it a great lunch alternative to the resort-owned spots on the mountain, as well as for après happy hour. It adjoins the cross country trail system, and in summer sits right on popular mountain bike paths, as well as the public Park City golf course. Whether they are in Lycra shorts, ski boots or golf shirts, the crowd here is often on their way to or from something fun.

The 50-seat restaurant (plus more outside in summer and sunny winter days, annually winning the town’s “Best Patio” award) has a cozy, alpine mountain feel, with wooden walls and crazily angled ceilings, exposed beams and heavy wooden trestle-style tables. The space is compact and warm. There is live music three nights weekly, and it is an especially alluring choice during any peak holiday time in Park City, such as the upcoming Presidents Day weekend, or during the Sundance Festival, when every spot on Main Street is jammed. But I would go anytime — it was the best of many meals I had in town, at much lower prices.

Reason to visit: Braised slab bacon, pork osso bucco, fried chicken, house burger, all desserts

The food:  “American roots cuisine” is what the chef at Silver Star Cafe calls the food here, but it is basically comfort mountain fare using well-chosen flavor combinations and top-notch ingredients to up the wow factor considerably. For instance, the delicious slab bacon appetizer, a standard steakhouse offering, is braised for perfect consistency and uses heritage breed duroc pork. It is tender, rich and succulent. The creative house burger is a ground daily blend of short rib, flank steak and chuck topped with smoked onions and poblano peppers with Jack cheese on a toasted ciabatta bun. When Guy Fieri came here to do an episode of his show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, he featured the signature osso bucco pork shank, using meat from naturally raised purveyor Niman Ranch. Like some of the other standout eateries Great American Bites has visited over the years, Silver Star Cafe proves that springing for the best ingredients really makes a difference.

The osso bucco is excellent and probably the most popular item for first-time visitors, garnished with a zesty fresh tomatillo salsa that perfectly pairs with the meat, and set on a bed of unusual but utterly delicious coconut creamed corn. Regulars are more likely to gravitate to the exceptional fried chicken. A deboned half-bird from Colorado’s all-natural Red Bird Farms is soaked in buttermilk before frying, and the restaurant has a separate fryer that is only used for this dish. The rice flour (gluten-free) breading is very crunchy but exceptionally light, almost like Japanese tempura, and lightly finished with a perfectly matched persimmon-chile glaze. It is served over a bed of “dirty lentils,” a healthier take on traditional Cajun dirty rice, packing in flavor with many of the same ingredients, including chicken livers. I don’t even like lentils and I loved it.

Portions are generous and this food is not light by any stretch of the imagination, but because of the athletic nature of the regular clientele, it is done in a health-conscious fashion. “We take regional comfort food and lighten it up, with no trans fats or high fructose corn syrup, using as much meat as possible that is antibiotic- and hormone-free,” said Jeff Ward, who along with his wife Lisa owns the place. It might be best described as active gourmet cuisine. In this vein, they chose to offer all desserts in “mini” sizes, sold individually or as customizable trios. Sales have spiked ever since, because so many people were skipping dessert due to its size. The sweets here are fabulous, especially their take on the homemade peanut butter cup, using locally renowned chocolatier Ritual’s dark chocolate with sea salt and sunflower seed butter, which tastes just like the peanut version, but without the allergy potential. There is a fantastic oatmeal bacon cookie sandwich with cinnamon cream cheese ice cream and a Canadian-inspired spiced maple and brown sugar cake, among several others.

Lunch is less elaborate but still features dishes made entirely to order, including sandwiches, burgers and pizza. The extensive craft cocktail menu features exclusively local spirits, such as award-winning High West whiskies and Salt Lake’s Beehive gin and Sugar House Distillery vodka. They even have an array of custom house-labeled wines, using California-grown grapes blended and aged in Utah, with proceeds from these going to support a local children’s non-profit. Whether you go for lunch, dinner or après cocktails, it is hard to go wrong here — there’s a feel-good vibe and everything is excellent.

Utah Ski Archives

By Ramon Gomez, Jr.
Nov 03, 2015

KSL posted the following article that we thought needed to be shared. After 25 years, thousands of images, Utah Ski Archives still collecting

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah's ski past runs deep and wide in time, as much as with any ski community in the world. The problem, as Dr. Gregory Thompson found, is that this history was as scattered as snowflakes on the mountainside.

Utah's skiing history was, as he discovered, locked away in family scrapbooks, old boxes in dark closets and in fond memories.

So, he set about bringing it to one location — the Utah Ski Archives.

Today, a half-century later, the ski archives in the J. Willard Marriott Library on the University of Utah campus hold thousands of photos, films, books and recorded memories of Utah's skiing past all in one location and all open for public review.

To begin with, Thompson was asked to include Utah into a national look into the history of skiing, but money was short and the effort failed.

At the time he was involved in building a customized archive for American Indian tribes. It was there he learned to organize archives.

"I learned the ins and outs of being an oral historian," he said.

Hired on to work on special collections in 1983 for the U. library, he met Sue Raemer, then assistant to the director and an avid skier.

"I kept telling her that we've got to document (Utah) skiing. Skiing was a major activity here in Utah and the founding fathers, the very backbone of skiing, were passing,'' he added.

Together they approached the library director about opening a ski archives and were given permission to proceed.

Thompson and Raemer recognized early on that it would be impossible to write the history of skiing without dealing with Alf Engen and the Engen brothers, Sverre and Corey, and focusing on the early years of Alta and Sun Valley.

"We approached Alf about starting a ski archives and he was very supportive. His became the cornerstone collection and the Engen family collection absolutely became the cornerstone collection,'' he said.

This brought Alan Engen, Alf's son, into the picture.

"And he became a real driving force,'' Thompson said.

First, of course, they needed funding and hit upon the idea of a Ski Affair, a dinner banquet for interested skiers. The first was held at the Fort Douglas Club in 1990.

"We felt we'd be lucky to get 50 people. We ended up with around 150. The next year was even larger and by the third year we'd outgrown the Fort Douglas Club," he said. "People who hadn't seen each other for 30 to 40 years were delighted to see each other again . . . The event told us that, indeed, we could attract an audience."

The next step came with an agreement between the library and Alan Engen, who was working on establishing the Alf Engen Ski Museum in the Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City. The museum officially opened in May of 2002 and today is the official artifact depository for ski history, displaying more than 300 trophies, medals and photos of the late Alf Engen. It also houses skiing equipment dating from the very early days to today's latest and most modern, along with equipment, memorabilia and stories that came out of the 2002 Olympics.

The archives and museum, said Thompson, a perfect marriage. The archives became the intellectual part of Utah's skiing history and the museum became the depository for skiing artifacts.

"Over time it became obvious this relationship was extremely important. Both were supportive and self-service at the same time. Together the sum was greater than the two parts," he said.

"Over the long haul it allowed us to develop and document a pretty incredible story . . . the depth and grassroots of skiing and the ski industry. Utah and Utahns have contributed an incredible number of innovations into the industry.''

Since the very first Ski Affair, Thompson has been very active in searching out and acquiring historical skiing facts. One of the best tools has been word of mouth. Skiers, and sometimes the family of skiers, have been eager to donate everything from photos to books. And, with funding from the affair, he has been able to purchase important collections that probably wouldn't have come to the archives as a gift.

"One of the real challenges has been that we've collected so much, especially photographs and film, we struggle to stay up with the tutorial side," he said.

"We thought in the beginning that in 10 to 12 years we'd top out on this initiative and have to move on to something else. That hasn't been true at all. We've seen some of the best collections come in the past six and seven years. Success beget success. It has allowed us to develop and document a pretty amazing story . . . the depth and grassroots of skiing and the ski industry here in Utah."

As of a few years ago, there were more than 70,000 still images, 5,000 motion films, 200 DVDs, 400 oral histories, 300 manuscripts and several thousand books in the archive. Thompson said there are now nearly 50,000 images online. Ski Racing Magazine recently gave the archives 300,000 photos.

As for the future, Thompson feels the archives needs to focus more on the 1970s on up to the 2000s, "where we wind up with the type of (ski) industry we have today.''

The 25th Annual Ski Affair will be held Thursday (Nov. 5) evening at the Grand America Hotel. Special recognition will be given to the late Dick Bass, co-founder of Snowbird. Social hour will begin at 6 p.m., with dinner at 7:15 p.m. and awards at 8:15 p.m. For information call 801-581-3421.
