Sundial Lodge at Canyons

Reviewed by Josh

Are you looking for good lodging at Canyons Ski Resort this winter?  We’ve got a few suggestions for you.  The Sundial Lodge is a great family-friendly hotel in the middle of a lot of great shops and, of course, restaurants.  In fact, in 2012 they dropped $2million on more than 100 rooms at the Sundial to ensure a great experience.  And that they did.

It’s the type of place you go to for a week and never get in your car.  Everything is within walking distance.  Think Vail Village, only better because it’s in Utah.  They even have an incredible fine dining Kosher spot called Bistro.

What restaurants are within walking distance?  The Farm, Bistro (the only Kosher restaurant in the area), Slopes, Escala Provisions and more.  There are great places for adult beverages – The Farm in particular has a great wine and cocktail list.

Of course, the best part is the ease with which you can start your day on the mountain.  Wake up, walk out, have breakfast, put on your skis and go.  If you want to go straight to the slopes, there are lots of places to eat on the mountain even you observe a kosher diet.  Bistro has places all around the mountain with pre-packaged Kosher food.

If you’re sticking around for a week, take the day off from the mountain and stay in your room, watch movies and snack.  That’s typically what I do.

We’re crazy about Utah, as I’m sure you know by now if you’ve followed SLC Foodie even for a short time.  We like it so much that we even prefer to take our vacations within the state.  Park City is a short drive up Parley’s but feels a million miles away.  If you need to get away from the hustle for a night or two, come up to the Canyons and stay at Sundial or something like it.  It’s a great special occasion getaway.
