Park City Foodie Series #4

Over a few short years, mountain dining has changed significantly at Park City Mountain. It began when Vail Resorts first began managing Canyons, remodeling the popular Cloud Dine restaurant and upgrading various menus at other locations on the mountain. After merging our resorts to become one, the same commitment to the on-mountain dining experience has been expanded across the entire resort with the introduction of the brand new Miners Camp restaurant, upgraded menus and the remodeled Red Pine Lodge. The day of soggy French fries and thin hamburger patties are over, Park City’s goal is to keep you fueled and healthy to ski all 7,300 acres without a mid-day slump.

This winter we'll be sharing some of our recipes with you in a series called the Park City Alpine Foodie Series. For this week's dish, we bring you the Trout Ratatouille from The Farm located in the heart of Canyons Village! The Farm sources local and regional ingredients to create a refined and innovative menu.  Call to make a reservation at (435) 615-8080, or make the dish at home using the recipe below:
