6 Best Ski Resorts & Mountain Dining in Utah

Snowboarding in Utah will always be one of my favorites. It's hard to deny how accessible the ski resorts are in Utah compared to how close they were to me growing up in Colorado. I did grow up in the mountains, but not in summit county, so it always took at least an hour to get to the ski resorts. Going to college in Utah provided me with a lot of opportunities to visit a variety of the resorts Utah has to offer, without going through great effort to get to them! So I always appreciate when I can return to Utah in the wintertime and spend some time on the slopes.

I recently discovered the ramen from Powder Keg when I was at Powder Mountain over the holidays, and it got me thinking. There has to be some awesome dining options out there on mountain at ski resorts in Utah, but I couldn't really find any information online reviewing the dining options at all the resorts! So I reached out to my friend Brooke at Female Foodie with the idea to cover some of the dining options at the top ski resorts in Utah. I drove out at the end of January and we got right to work! We were pleasantly surprised by what we found, whether it was super deluxe loaded nachos right off the slopes at Solitude Mountain, or a fresh and locally sourced charcuterie spread from the Foundry Grill at Sundance Resort. We want to share our findings with you, so you won't be stuck hungry and wondering where to go the next time you're spending a day on the mountain! Cheers!

Deer Valley Resort (2250 Deer Valley Drive South, Park City, UT)

Deer Valley Resort is one of Utah’s premier skiing options, with six different snow covered mountains (Little Baldy Peak, Bald Eagle, Bald, Flagstaff, Empire, & Lady Morgan), guest services that are unparalleled, and some of the best resort dining we have yet to try. We were excited to cover this ski experience on one of the most gorgeous days this winter. Follow us through this post, as we uncover some of the best Deer Valley dining options and some of our favorite ski terrain. Read our full post on Deer Valley Resort *here*.

Powder Mountain Resort (6965 East Powder Mountain Road, Eden, UT)

Powder Mountain, located in Eden, UT, is definitely one of Utah’s best kept (skiing) secrets. With 7,000 acres of skiable terrain, there’s always new and fun areas to explore and powder stashes aplenty. One day at Powder Mountain is simply not enough. But with the new North Fork Lodge open now just minutes from the mountain, and several on mountain dining options at any of their three lodges, you are definitely covered when you go to Powder Mountain!

Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort (9600 Little Cottonwood Canyon Road, Sandy, UT)

Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort has been a Salt Lake City fixation since 1971. Originally with three lifts, The Tram, and two lodges, Snowbird has since expanded to over 11 trams and lifts, half a dozen on site lodging locations, and is now home to hundreds of thousands of skiing crazed locals and tourists annually. Snowbird has invested over $35 million in new capital improvements for the current 2015/16 skiing season, including a newly remodeled Cliff Lodge, smartcard ticketing, expanded snowmaking, and a brand new mountaintop guest experience- The Summit.

Snowbasin Resort (3925 Snow Basin Road, Huntsville, UT)

Beautiful, gorgeous, Snowbasin Resort with all of its 3,000 skiable acres and 3,000 verticle feet. The food here is fresh and innovative. Executive Chef Scott Sniggs has knocked himself out providing guests with seasonal, local items to match a pristine mountain experience. Read our full post *here* on Snowbasin Resort.

Solitude Mountain Resort (12000 Big Cottonwood Canyon Road, Solitude, UT)

Solitude Mountain Resort is a beautiful winter and summer resort located just 30 minutes from Salt Lake City up Big Cottonwood Canyon, and has recently been made even better from its recent acquisition by Deer Valley Resort. They opened a new high speed quad in December, added a new run from the Apex lift to the new Summit Express lift, and revamped the menus at each of their restaurants- which of course gave us all the more reason to give them a visit and try some of their new offerings!

Sundance Mountain Resort (8841 Alpine Loop Scenic Byway, Provo, UT)

Sundance Mountain Resort, just a 15 minute drive northeast of Orem in Utah County, has some of the most gorgeous views and delicious food in all of Utah’s ski terrain. This beautiful mountain resort sits against the ever popular Mountain Timpanogos, with views that will stun you from even the parking lot as you pull up. With over 42 runs, 450 acres of skiable terrain, and premier resort dining, you can’t leave this off of your list! Read our full post on Sundance Mountain Resort *here*.
