Lunch on-the-go is common in Park City!  We’re all so busy enjoying all of the fantastic outdoor adventures, shopping and relaxing, sometimes taking the time to sit down to a lengthy lunch is just not in the plan.  Here’s a list of some of the best sandwiches to sink your teeth in to, or shove in your backpack for a lunch break once you’ve climbed to the summit on your hike!

Back Door Deli Never Dissapoints

A great little spot to stop for a New York deli style sandwich, fresh made pasta salad, or a cup of soup is the Back Door Deli, located at 136 Heber Avenue.  A favorite sandwich of Park City locals is the #40, Brie, artichoke hearts, tomato, red onion, lettuce and cucumber all served up on a toasted sourdough baguette.  If you’re looking for something a little meatier, check out #41, the Hot Italian Ham!  Holy cow, this sandwich will knock your socks off!  Loaded with dry salami, Genoa salami, onions, banana peppers, tomato, roasted red peppers, lettuce, provolone, balsamic vinaigrette, and mayo all stuffed on to a sourdough baguette.  Whew!

Mahi Mahi Sandwich with Mango Salsa at Sammy’s Bistro

Aloha! Sammy’s Bistro, located at 1980 Bonanza drive, has one of the tastiest grilled Mahi Mahi sandwiches this side of the Rockies!  They start with fresh, grilled Mahi, and then add on a helping of cabbage, cilantro, house made mango salsa,and top it all with a tomatillo aioli all snuggled between a toasted Tuscan ciabatta roll.  Try a jalapeno beer along side for a perfect summer sandwich!

 

Sink Your Teeth in to Silver Star Cafe’s Turkey BLT

For a down-home basic, but incredibly delicious sandwich, check out Silver Star Cafe’s Turkey BLT.  Silver Star is located at 1825 Three Kings Drive in the Silver Star Village, which is great if you want to grab a bite after hiking or biking all morning on one of Park City Mountain Resort’s many trails.  The village is located right beneath a couple of trails, as well as directly behind the Park City Municipal Golf Course.  This fantastic creation is piled high with turkey breast, smoked bacon, and topped off with a cranberry-cherry relish and served on a toasted sourdough – it’s like a mini Thanksgiving feast for lunch!  when you’re done, relax on their outdoor patio, or head back up and explore a few more trails!

Create Your Own sandwich at Leger’s

A final stop on your Tour de’ Sandwiches should undoubtedly be Leger’s, located in Kimball Junction at 1612 west Ute Boulevard.  Leger’s has been creating amazing sandwiches since 1977, and is a true local’s favorite.  What’s so fantastic about Leger’s is that you are the Chef!  Create your own sandwich masterpiece using their fresh ingredients – they even have Liverwurst and Chicken cashew Salad!  Choose your bread, veggies and toppings, and you’ll have your own one-of-a-kind creation to nosh on!  Hang out in their casual deli and enjoy, or head back to your vacation home-away-from-home in Park City and enjoy!

  1. Celebrate Fat Tuesday Park City Style

Hidden in Park City, Utah there are the remains of a spectacular event. An event that brings together people from around the world for a celebration of fun and games. An event that was held  in Salt Lake City, Utah during the winter of 2002; The Olympic Winter Games. And although the celebration may be over the the flame still burns.

At first the history might not be so obvious, but if you look a little closer you will realize it’s right in front of your eyes. Two giant green ski jumps are tucked away in the Wasatch Mountains. These jumps are the first to greet you as you enter Park City and symbolizes the spirit of the Olympic games. The spirit of unity, competition, and hard work that bring out the best in each and everyone one of us. A spirit that is still well alive today, a feeling that surrounds you the moment you find.

The jumps are whats left of the winter games and a small part of the Utah Olympic Park. The park is located in a little town called Kimball Junction in Park City. As you head toward town you will encounter a long and winding road making its was to the big green ski jumps. This road is called Olympic Parkway and is the way to the world-class Olympic park. As you make your way to the park you will realize that this place is a hidden gem and is a whole lot more than meets the eye the facility stretches over 389 acres surrounded by a beautiful forest and filled with jumps, rides, pools, and of course world class athletes.

The facility is home to six Nordic Ski Jumps, a 1,335 meter sliding track, freestyle aerial and competition hill, a 750,000-gallon summer freestyle aerial training pool, the Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center, Alf Engen Ski Musem and Eccles 2002 Winter Olympics Games Museum. As if all that wasn’t enough to get you excited the Olympic Park Is also home to the worlds steepest zip-line, as well as the Quicksilver Alpine slide.

There is never a dull moment at the Olympic Park. During the summer you can watch ski jumpers perfect their technique as they fly through the air. Or watch the aerialists practice their twists and jumps landing safely into the 750,00-gallon pool. If you are feeling bold enough you can sign up for the bobsled and discover how it feels to fly down a steep twisting track of ice. Or even throw on some skis and try the freestyle jumps for yourself!

Winter at the Olympic Park is just as fun as summer, try the Comet Bobsled and reach speeds of up to 80mph with 5 G’s of force. Or go for the gold and learn how to skeleton down the last four turns of the track. If that’s not enough to get your blood pumping there’s also a combination of Nordic Ski Jumping, Moguls, and Terrain Park that will!

The Park is open year-round with seasonal activities for visitors. Guided tours are available daily all year long. The Alf Engen Ski Museum and George Eccles 2002 Winter Olympic Games Museum is open year-round. Admission to the museums and venue is free.

  1. Let the Summer Begin! June Brings Summer Fun to Park City.

Last year, with prodding from our oldest son, we all decided to spend July 4th in Park City.

“We all” means the entire family: an aging couple, their three children, spouses as available, seven grandchildren and the mother in law of our daughter.

We arrived in Salt Lake City and were picked up in big cars/trucks and hauled off to Park City.

The ride through the foothills of the Rockies was fascinating. The weather could not have been better and soon we arrived in town. We settled into several condos in the Snowblaze complex, met wonderful new friends and had a great time even before we completely settled in. Dinner was a quick event as all of us were tired, even the kids. The long flight from the East Coast and the altitude in PC put a damper on their usually ebullient behavior.

Breakfast was a “community affair” as the kids and eventually the adults moved from Condo to Condo to chat have some tea or coffee and move on to the next place. Just a short walk up the slope is an amazing amusement area: not just bar, restaurant and play areas for the little ones, slides down the mountain side, a lift ready to take you for a trip up and up with your feet dangling high up above the ground way down below. And don’t let me forget the Zip line through the forest.

Clean air with a fresh pine scent, and bright sunshine. And above the trees we could see the snow and ice capped mountain tops.

The parade on July 4th was amazing; after all, Park City is not a metropolitan city where a first class parade on that date is expected. What this small city put on the road was marvelous: several bands, acrobats and jugglers, floats with children and adults performing, and the visitors were lounging comfortably on the sidewalks enjoying not only the parade but also a cool beer or two.

After the parade our oldest grandson went to explore the skateboard parks, which are generous in size, well maintained and challenging enough for many of the youngsters.

Mother in Law had such a grand time that after the parade she tripped on the street and managed to brake her ankle, which did not dampen the good spirits of the rest as she was well taken care of at the hospital.

We can’t wait to repeat this trip, though right now our plans will lead us elsewhere.

But as a certain actor said some years ago  “I’ll be back!”

A family affair for EVERYONE!!!!

Beautiful and adventurous even in the Summer.

This moose was not loose…

  1. Let the Summer Begin! June Brings Summer Fun to Park City.

Tucked away in the mountains near Park City, Utah there are the remains of a spectacular event. An event that has brought together people from around the world for a celebration of fun and games. An event held in Salt Lake City, Utah during the winter of 2002 called the Olympic Winter Games. And although the celebration may be over the spirit is still well alive in the Park City Olympic park.

When you first arrive in Park City two giant green ski jumps will be the first thing to catch your eye. These jumps are symbolize the spirit the Olympic games left behind. The spirit of unity, competition, and hard work bringing out the best in each and everyone one of us. A spirit that is still well alive today, a feeling that you get the moment you step into the park.

The park is located right before Park City in a little town called Kimball Junction. As you head towards Park City you will encounter a long and winding road making its way up to the ski jumps on the side of the mountain. This road is called Olympic Parkway and is the path to the world-class Olympic park.  As you make your way up you will discover a huge facility filled with everything you need to become an Olympic champion and more.

The facility is a 389 acre park that is home to six Nordic Ski Jumps, a 1,335 meter sliding track, a freestyle aerial winter training and competition hill, a 750,000-gallon summer freestyle aerial training pool, the Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center, Alf Engen Ski Musem and Eccles 2002 Winter Olympics Games Museum. And if all that wasn’t enough to get you excited the Olympic Park Is home to the worlds steepest zip-line, as well as the Quicksilver Alpine slide.

During the summer you can watch ski jumpers perfect their technique as they fly through the air. Or watch the aerialists practice their twists and jumps landing safely into the 750,00-gallon pool. If you are feeling bold you can sign up for the comet bobsled and see what it’s like to fly down a steep twisting track of ice. You can watch the athletes training at all levels, or even try the freestyle ski jumps into the summer splash pool!

In the winter you can take the ride of your life down the Olympic track on the winter Comet Bobsled with an experienced pilot as your guide. Riders reach speeds of 80 mph with 5 G’s of force! You can also try the sport of skeleton on the Rocket Skeleton Ride. Learn how to maneuver a skeleton sled down the last 4 curves of the Olympic track. If that’s not enough you can also try Nordic Ski Jumping, Moguls, or Terrain Park during the Sunday ski clinics.

The Park is open year-round with seasonal activities for visitors. Guided tours are available daily all year long. The Alf Engen Ski Museum and George Eccles 2002 Winter Olympic Games Museum are open year-round. Admission to the museums and venue is free.

Delicious Outdoor Dining at Royal Street Cafe in Deer Valley

What’s going on at Deer Valley in the summer?  well, first of all, the Royal Street Cafe will be opening, a favorite of hikers, mountain bikers, or those just looking for delicious food and a fantastic view.  Royal Street is located mid-mountain in the Silver Lake Lodge and offers award winning dining along with a splendid deck offering amazing views, and is open for lunch daily.  Roayl Street is offering a bounce back offer this summer as well; when you purchase a $13 one-time ride on the Silver Lake Express chairlift, and then enjoy lunch at Royal Street, you will recieve a free lift voucher that can be redeemed for a single scenic chairlift ride ticket any day of the 2012 summer season.  How fun is that?  When at Royal Street, I recommend you try their Asian Chicken Salad – a great summer lunch!  When you’re done with lunch, grab a carrot cake cupcake for the road, grab your mountain bike, and head back to the extensive trails at Deer Valley!

 

Mountain Biking at Deer Valley

 

Speaking of mountain biking, Deer Valley offers miles of amazing trails to bike on.  They offer lift serviced mountain bike trails as well, so if you prefer the “down” to the “up”, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the easy ride up the chairlift while you ready yourself for the adrenaline rush of cruising back down the mountain!  They offer trails for all levels of rider as well, so bring the whole family!  Of course, for those who prefer not to bike, you can ride the Silver Mountain Chair up, enjoy the spectacular views, hike around a little, and head back down on the chair.  There is truly something for every ability level at Deer Valley!

Deer Valley Luxury

Clearly, with so much going on at Deer Valley this summer, with all the concerts, hiking, biking, dining and shopping to tackle, staying close is truly an advantage.  There are so many amazing lodging options for groups and families of all sizes available, you’ll find it easy to locate the best fit for your Park City get-away.  One such property is our Deer Valley Ski Estate.  This ultra-premium property is located in Ironwood, nestled in to the Deer Valley empire Pass area.  The Ski Estate has unbelievable upgrades and is almost 2,700 square feet of total luxury.  Plus, you’re literally steps away from the ski slopes, so easy access to hiking and biking is at your doorstep.  Each bedroom has it’s own en suite bathroom, and the kitchen is a chef’s dream! Of course, if you choose not to cook during you vacation, you have multiple amazing Deer Valley restaurants to choose from, or you could really relax and have a private chef come cook for you! The sky is the limit – and you’ll enjoy planning each day while soaking in your private hot tub and enjoying the serene view around you.

An interesting spot to visit to shop for jewelry and other accessories is Silverado, located at 260 Main Street.  The owners of this little shop have spent over 20 years collecting and designing their collections, and have all sorts of fun pieces for you to enjoy!  As soon as you walk in the shop, you’ll notice the cozy ambiance and exceptional customer service offered by Thomas and Michelle, the store’s owners.  They have gone out of their way to ensure that their customers feel like a part of the family while within their shop.  You’ll enjoy looking at the great beaded pieces including necklaces and bracelets, as well as the Western inspired belt buckles and cowboy hats.  They even sell delicious Chai Tea for you to take back to your vacation home and enjoy.

If high end is your thing, then you’ll absolutely want to drop by OC Tanner, located at 416 Main Street.  Although OC Tanner found it’s beginning in Salt Lake City, it opened it’s Park City location so that skiers, celebrities, and visitors could indulge in the luxury items they offer.  Spend some time perusing heirloom-quality jewelry, as their cases are filled with the latest designer collections.  Although they offer a variety of collections, some of the highlights are Roberto Coin, Omega and David Yurman.  OC Tanner is synonymous with luxury – they even provide a personal shopping service should you so desire.  Visit them and enjoy surrounding yourself with true luxury!

The simple pleasures of being a kid, when an hour seemed like “forever,” and you couldn’t go a day without laughing. From parks and ice cream shops to toy stores and merry go rounds the fun seemed to never end. Why do kids get to have all the fun?

I’ll let you in on a little secret: I know of a place where the slides aren’t just for kids, but  adults too. A place where desert comes before dinner, and your only worry is what to do next. A little place called Park City where kids and adults can play together.

Park City at dusk

Park City at dusk

Nestled in the hills of the Wasatch mountains there is a city full of adventure and fun. A natural playground, where the sun shines, birds sing, and the grass is green. From mountain biking, to hot air balloons the fun never ends.

The summers are filled with food fresh from the farm and local beer always on tap. From pizza on Main Street to dinner in the mountains, the food is purely world class.

With your appetite satisfied and ice cream in hand its time to discover the “Park” in Park City and head on over to Park City Mountain Resort where summer is just as exciting as winter.

Park City Zipline

Park City Zipline

Take the local lift up to the top of the mountain for a birds eye view of the breath-taking landscape. Or maybe take a ride on the 3000 ft long Alpine slide. Find out how it feels to fly with a ride on the 100ft tall 50mph zip line, or simply take a stroll through the woods. In Park City there is something for everyone.

 

Now that you know, it’s time to go! The only way to truly discover the magic of Park City is to experience it for yourself. So bring your family and friends and live the Park City life style, the playground for adults where you cant go a day without a smile :)

P.S. – Let us know your favorite part about Park City, don’t be shy drop us a line!

A Local Feast at the Park City Farmer’s Market

Everyone gets excited when the Farmer’s Market kicks off their summer season!  This market, located in the lower parking lot of Canyons Resort, brings together a multitude of of local farmers and food producers.  Each Wednesday from 12PM-6PM, market-goers can enjoy strolling around the booths, sampling the fresh produce offerings, tasting a variety of farm fresh food offerings, and enjoying the sense of community that comes along with the farmers market.  Some of the items available in the past have been fresh local hummus, locally famed corn, peaches and apples, and amazing local cheeses and meats.  You can literally head to the market and shop for dinner and dessert all at once!  There is usually some unique jewelry vendors as well as live music and entertainment, and you can even get a chair massage in between snacking!  Although the market is well attended, you’ll never feel crowded or rushed as you peruse the offerings – and you’ll undoubtedly make it a mandatory stop each time you visit Park City in the summer and fall.  Visit http://parkcityfarmersmarket.com/ for market details.

Dine At Chez Betty This Weekend As A Part Of The Food & Film Weekend

The Slow Food movement has taken off not only across the country, but here in Park City as well!  The idea behind Slow Food is to help in preserving local and regional cuisine, and encourages the sourcing of food and goods from your local network.  Throughout the year different groups host Slow Food events, and this weekend, the Park City Film Series will be presenting “Slow Food & Film Festival”.  This is a super cool event, and partners together film and local food inspired by the films being shown.  The film and dining schedule is as follows:

Friday, June 1, 7PM:  “Julie and Julia” followed by a French dinner inspired by the film at Chez Betty

Saturday, June 2, 7PM: “Big Night”.  Dine after the movie at Buona Vita and enjoy Italian Cuisine inspired by the movie

Sunday, June 3, 6PM: “Choclat”.  Before and after the film, local bakers will hold a bake sale, so you’ll have lots of amazing treats for during the screening and for the ride home!

Films will be screened at the Park City Library and Education Center, located at 1225 Park Avenue.
