While most locals and visitors choose their slopes based on ski conditions, when the ski conditions are as good as they are now in Utah, you might start to weigh in some other variables… like what food can you indulge with at lunch. I primarily ski at Solitude and Deer Valley so I’m going to give you my favorites at those two resorts. I would love to hear what food you hunt down after a few runs at other local resorts. Please comment with Utah Ski Resort food recommendations!
Bald Mountain at Deer Valley is now serving Pho! Yes that’s right, traditional Vietnamese Pho with aromatic beef broth that’s been slowly and meticulously cooked, thinly sliced Wagyu beef, rice noodles and all of the toppings you can imagine including house-made sriracha sauce. Also, at the Silver Lake Lodge you’ll find a taco bar with a grand assortment of choices from red chile, lime, and cilantro shrimp to Niman Ranch Pork carnitas.
If you’re dining at Deer Valley at night you won’t want to miss the Seared Scallop served on a pink Himalayan salt block (served at Seafood Buffet), The Harissa Rubbed Cornish Game Hen paired with a cornmeal sweet potato waffle (served at The Brass Tag), or the Bourbon Praline Ice Cream (served at the Mariposa).
Solitude has really revamped their food selection this year! At the Roundhouse Lodge you can find Indian curries and flatbread, at the Inn – a full breakfast buffet including homemade individual portioned quiche , and at Honeycomb Grill – a variety of fresh made soups and salads including seafood chowder.
If you want a special night out at Solitude, you absolutely must have dinner at the Yurt. The menu changes all the time there but I promise an adventurous evening of delicious food. The yurt is located less than a mile from the village of Solitude and snowshoes and headlamps are provided for your jaunt up to the fun locale. Make reservations and bring all of your best friends for a truly magical night.
