High West Saloon
Historic Park City
Click out of your bindings and enjoy the world’s one and only ski-in, gastro-distillery, located just a moment away from the Park City Mountain’s Town Lift on Park Avenue. High West offers refreshing and inventive cocktails and internationally renowned spirits, distilled just East of town in Wanship. The saloon offers a rustic, Old West feel in a renovated, historic garage. Invigorate your senses with a Trapper, made with Rendezvous Rye, whipped cream, and hot chocolate. Or simply sip on a shot of the smoky Campfire Whiskey while resting your ski legs. We recommend ordering the pretzel and the cheese and charcuterie board – you won’t be disappointed! On a sunny day, enjoy the outdoor patio and watch the Park City world pass by. Après-ski is alive and well at this popular and historic local landmark.
St. Regis Deer Valley
If you find yourself on the Deer Valley slopes when the lifts stop spinning, ascend the funicular to the Mountain Terrace or take a seat at the St. Regis Bar. The legendary St. Regis does après-ski like everything else it does: perfectly polished in every way. Relax on the heated stone terrace and soak up the sunset cascading over the slopes. The warm heat of the fire garden and calming atmosphere brings friends together, both new and old. Sip on a complimentary glass of champagne, poured fresh from the bartender after he dramatically recites the Napoleonic tale of champagne during a scenic sabering. If the kids are craving a sugar rush, head over to the S’ mores Bar on the terrace for a sweet treat. Cozy up under the heaters and the stars while toasting another perfect winter day.
Waldorf Astoria Park City
After spending your day in the mountain majesty of Park City, continue the magic by relaxing in your very own igloo. Last December, the Waldorf Astoria debuted Frostoria, a series of clear, extravagantly styled, personal igloos. If there was ever a way to experience après-ski in style, this is it. Choose from inventive cocktails and delicious shareable eats like Braised Short Ribs or Wild Mushroom Risotto with Black Truffle. Complete your evening under the stars at this fabulous arctic village where no luxury is spared.
Veuve Clicquot Yurt
Montage Deer Valley
Are there many things more satisfying than sitting back and relaxing after a day of skiing? At the Montage, certainly not. The resort, located adjacent to Deer Valley’s Ruby and Empire chair lifts, offers a grandiose, modern ski lodge design. Descend the stairs from the Burgers & Bourbon Bar to the Veuve Clicquot Yurt, which takes après luxury to the next level. Slide off the slopes and into the chic, slope-side yurt to relax and rejuvenate. Sip on some bubbly while tasting delectable bites, including caviar, created by the experts on the Montage culinary team. Anyone gracing the slopes of Deer Valley can’t miss this intimate, refined après paradise.
