Resorts announce new food & beverage offerings
November 2, 2010
There have never been more options for hungry skiers than there will be this winter.
On Oct. 28 at the Park City Chamber/Bureau Fall Forum representatives from the three resorts outlined what they’re most excited about heading into the season.
Canyons, in addition to major additions outlined in the Oct. 23 issue of The Park Record, is opening several new restaurants. The Umbrella Bar will replace Smokies torn down earlier this year. It will be located where the stage was.
Todd Burnette, vice president of marketing, said Smokies was dear to many residents but was located in a bad spot.
"It was right in the way it didn’t look like a ski resort," he said. "You were greeted by circa 1965 architecture."
The Farm is a 4,000-square-foot restaurant that will be where real estate offices were located. It will feature 200 seats indoors and potentially another 200 outdoors, he said.

More food and beverages will be available on the south side of the mountain at Dream Peak with 200 seats 126 indoor and 100 outdoor.
There’s a lot happening at the resort right now, but Burnette said it will all be ready for opening day.
Deer Valley Resort will soon open the Deer Valley Grocery-Café offering breakfast and lunch items. It will have eggs, bread, milk and cheeses to save visitors a drive into town, as well as frozen and prepared food that can be purchased for a quick meal, director of marketing Coleen Reardon explained.
The Grocery-Café will be located in the same space formerly occupied by The Stew Pot at Deer Valley Plaza.
The biggest news with the Grocery-Café is it has obtained a special license to sell bottled wine, beer and liquor, Reardon explained.
Park City Mountain Resort director of marketing and communications Krista Parry, said via email Monday the resort has a new food and beverage director and new Chef de Cuisine.
"We are still working out the details but we will have a menu tasting in a couple weeks," she said.
Also, the Viking Yurt formerly at Canyons has moved to PCMR and will offer its unique Scandinavian dining experience there, Parry added.
