Park City is on the eastern side of Utah’s Wasatch Mountain Range, and due to its high altitude, it is a veritable paradise for winter activities. Even though the month of May usually signifies warmer temperatures across other parts of the country, here in Park City mom can still hit the slopes until the end of the month. However, if mom wants to enjoy some well-deserved rest and relaxation, Park City has plenty to offer, from attractions to events and of course, brunch!
Mother’s Day Brunch Options
In regard to the much-beloved Sunday meal, this alpine village stays true to its wintry roots with the popular Glitretind at Stein Eriksen Lodge in Deer Valley. The menu features Nordic inspired dishes, a wine cellar that contains more than 18,000 bottles, and impeccable service. Another lavish spread is also prepared at the Waldorf Astoria, although the menu remains a little more traditional at Powder, the in-house restaurant. Aside from luxurious resort restaurants, Park City still provides several options in terms of price, convenience, formal, casual, etc. Try restaurants such as Versante Hearth, Farm, Harvest and Fletcher’s in order to find the one that best suits mom. Each one of these restaurants offers its own special Mother’s Day menu meant to honor that special lady who has given us so much.
Fun On and Off the Mountain
An added benefit of visiting Park City during Mother’s Day is that many restaurants, bars and lounges provide the perfect après-ski cocktail or warm beverage after a long day on the slopes or just to provide refuge from the cold mountain air. Of course, most kids want to pamper their mom on her special Sunday, so one of the best options is to stroll and shop along Main Street in search of trinkets and treasures. Additionally, there are several art galleries here which feature all types of work, from contemporary and abstract to traditional artists from the American West. Also, there are more than enough spas to provide that quintessential winter experience of sitting in the Jacuzzi while snow falls gently around you. Thankfully, you can find the perfect one through a reservation made with Park City Rentals. Finally, if mom does want to don the skis and ascend the mountain, Park City has a run exactly suited for her. From the steep inclines of Deer Valley Ski Resort to the gentle family friendly runs at Park City Mountain, mom as well as the entire clan will have a great time on Mother’s Day.
