Ski resorts offering tasty dishes to keep you on the slopes

The ski and snowboard season is fast approaching. While the resorts of Utah wait for the snow, their kitchens are busy preparing the food they’ll serve guests this season, from stew and chili that will keep you warm on the slopes to the sandwiches and fries that will give you the energy to stay on the mountain until the last chair.

Snowbird’s stew at The Summit restaurant tops the list of Frédéric Barbier, the resort’s food and beverage manager. Barbier hastens to support the sandwiches of the rotisserie in second position: “They are so simple but so good. Barber tells guests to try the new rib sandwich on the Plaza Bridge, as far as the new recipes go.

Deer Valley Fireside Dining’s fondant raclette cheese comes highly recommended by resort spokesperson Emily Summers. And in case that doesn’t already sound exquisite enough, starting December 17, guests will also have the option of being taken to dinner in a horse-drawn carriage.

Alta expects a lot from an American classic from its own Alf’s restaurant. “They have really good fries, you can’t miss the fries,” said Andria Huskinson, spokesperson for the resort. Located on the Albion side of the mountain, Alf’s is a cafeteria-style restaurant where patrons can find a range of comfort foods, and Huskinson says their views aren’t bad either.

Solitude’s Roundhouse restaurant is also known for its fries. “There is nothing better for snacking with friends or ordering a refreshing drink while taking in the magnificent views of Roundhouse’s wraparound patio,” Solitude spokesperson Sarah Huey said. The famous fries are mixed with spices and served hot with curry aioli, and apparently a staple.

When it comes to curry, if you’re heading to Powder Mountain this season, spokesperson JP Goulet says the Powder Keg Bar’s Green Curry Ramen is a must-have after a day on the slopes.

This season, Park City Mountain Resort has more than one new dish that is exciting. Lookout Cabin Chili Verde Poutine features braised pork, crème fraîche and Heber Valley jalapeño cheese curds. Also at Lookout Cabin, you’ll find a portabello mushroom stuffed with a spinach and artichoke dip, feta, arugula and a nice balsamic reduction to finish. For vegans looking for something hearty enough to spend a day in the mountains, Legends Pub and Grill offers an Asian noodle salad with soba noodles in the center, a mix of vegetables, and a sesame and ginger vinaigrette. to tie it all together.

It’s around 1 p.m. and you’ve been on the slopes for a few hours. You have trouble feeling your toes or the tip of your nose. It’s time for a lunch that will warm you up enough to spend the rest of the day on the mountain warm and invigorated.

In Alta, Huskinson tells guests to buy the chili at Alf’s: “After you’ve eaten it, you’ll want to go and burn those calories on the mountain. If you want to take it a step further, Huskinson encourages guests to head up to the Collins Grill on the third floor of Watson’s Shelter, where you can swap your boots for a nice pair of warm slippers and a piece of their famous double chocolate melted cake.

No discussion of ski resort food would be complete without mentioning Deer Valley’s famous turkey chili. After this hearty meal, you’ll be ready to spend the rest of your day on the slopes until the sun begins to set and the cool of the night sets in, when it’s time to dine by the fire. “This is our most popular dining experience, featuring favorites from the European Alps served in stone fireplaces,” says Summers.

Sundance ticket holders can also try a chili at the Foundry Grill, the resort’s farm-to-table restaurant. Served with local cheddar, roasted tomatoes and homemade crème fraîche, resort executive chef Ryan Burnham says the bison chili won’t disappoint. “Perfect for a cold day when you don’t want to go out, or for when you’ve been outside and need to warm up with something warm and filling, this is a great après ski dish,” says -he.

This season, Katie Guffey, Senior Restaurant Manager at Park City Mountain, plans to warm up with grilled onion cheese and tomato soup at the resort’s Legacy Lodge. “It’s like a soup and a sandwich with a bonus soup,” she says.

Le Barbier de Solitude also encourages patrons to try the other 16 restaurants across the mountain, especially the Mid Gad Burger.

Deer Valley will be opening Fresh Tracks Kitchen this season at Snow Park Lodge. According to Summers, the resort’s newest addition will offer “a selection of healthy and customizable hot bowls, salads, hot soups and perfectly grilled burgers served to your table, dishes are made with whole ingredients, fresh and fresh. season. . “The restaurant will operate on a new online ordering system that allows customers to place orders remotely.

If you’re looking for somewhere to grab a drink and eat after a long day at Park City Resort, head to The Farm, which stands out from the resort’s other seven restaurants. Jessica Miller, spokesperson for Park City, said The Farm exists “like a real brewery.” In addition to wine, craft beer, and cocktail options, the restaurant offers a variety of platters of fries, homemade cheeses, and small plates to share. For an enhanced dining experience, reserve the heated yurt outside the restaurant.

The Tree Room is the first building ever to be built at the Sundance Mountain Resort. The restaurant is aptly named, considering the living tree which is the focal point of the space. Resort marketing manager Alysha Jeppson says the tree makes the restaurant’s atmosphere an experience in itself.

“The building is designed with large windows to facilitate natural lighting and views of the surrounding nature, especially magical with the blown snow and the changing colors of the seasons,” she says. “The restaurant philosophy integrates modern French techniques with American comfort in a rustic Western Rocky Mountain setting.” Beyond the ambiance of the restaurant, Burnham says the wine list is top notch.

Want to try something different? Cecret Café located in Alf’s Restaurant in Alta is the perfect place to go when you’re on the run but need a quick pick-me-up, thanks to Cecret’s ski window. Among the coffee drinks and other drinks, Cecret offers two to three types of waffles to choose from.

Roundhouse at Solitude doesn’t just offer curry fries, it offers various curries and serves the Indian staple with naan and rice. Plus, the restaurant has a chicken pie which Huey says is worth trying.
