When Park City Mountain Resort in Park City, Utah merged with the Canyons Resort in 2015, it became the largest ski resort in the United States. That designation alone carries a significant wow factor. Park City Mountain owner Vail Resorts, however, has made some significant investments to ensure the amenities at the resort match up to its sprawling size.
You can look for a few key renovations to make their debut in the upcoming 2018-2019 ski season, which kicks off on November 21.
New High Meadow Family Fun Zone Beckons Beginning Skiers
Improvements to be unveiled this winter include the High Meadow Family Fun Zone at Canyons Village. Beginning skiers and snowboarders of all ages will reach the Fun Zone via a high-speed four-passenger lift. This new lift will shorten chair rides by 70 percent and also reduce time spent waiting in line in the chilly air.
The area will be cushioned via additional snowmaking, making the gentle slopes of the High Meadow Family Fun Zone the best learning terrain in Utah. To enhance the fairytale atmosphere, a Candy Cabin has been set up near Fun Zone where skiers can enjoy a break and a sweet treat.
Park City Mountain Dining Options Have Been Expanded
The dining experience at Park City Mountain will also be enhanced this season with renovations to three of the resort’s favorite restaurants.
The Mid-Mountain Lodge is Park City Mountain’s most iconic dining spot, serving up hearty lodge food along with spectacular views from its ample deck.
Originally a miner’s boarding house, the more than 120-year-old lodge is being renovated just in time for the upcoming ski season. Its decor will provide a luxurious ambiance, while the dining experience will be improved through a new high-quality menu and a full-service bar.
The mountaintop bistro Cloud Dine will be expanded by 200 seats, allowing for an additional 60 percent guest capacity. Offering spectacular views of the Wasatch Range, Cloud Dine serves healthy and hearty made-from-scratch snacks and meals. It’s also a favorite destination in the morning, where skiers can fuel up with fresh-made Cloud Dine donuts.
Red Tail Grill
Located in Canyons Village, the Red Tail Grill is a family-friendly restaurant with taphouse fare. The al fresco seating area on the large outdoor deck is being upgraded and enhanced.
It’s exciting to see Park City Mountain Resort changing for the better, allowing for better snow season skiing and dining as well as year-round recreation amid the Wasatch Range— truly a jewel amid the Rocky Mountains.
