Top 3 On-Mountain Patios For Spring

Taking in the view on a warm spring day with a delicious meal on the table and a cold drink in your hand— this is what all of our favorite on-mountain patios have in common when March comes around. Visit all three and enjoy the season!

1: Lookout Cabin

Imagine sipping a delicious cocktail or glass of wine on a beautiful sunny day with your closest friends and one of the greatest views of the Wasatch Mountain Range in Utah. Well, this must be your lucky day because you don’t have to imagine it! Simply get off at the mid-station of Orange Bubble Express and head into Lookout Cabin.

Lookout Cabin has taken a truly upscale dining experience and brought it to you on the mountain. At an elevation over 8000 feet you have an opportunity to enjoy the best views available at Park City Mountain, while enjoying a full service dining experience.  The Rocky Mountain Fondue is always a hit, just ask anyone who has tried it! The Pan Seared Apple Braised Pork Belly is worth the trip by itself.

Insiders Tip— On especially nice days, be sure to make a reservation for a better chance at getting a table on the patio!

 

2: Cloud Dine

One of the things I love most about spring skiing is taking a little extra time on the slopes and then savoring a well-earned lunch afterwards. Cloud Dine is the best spot to do both! It’s an adventure just to get here! You'll take at least 4 lifts before you settle in for a late lunch.

Two lifts are right outside the front doors, so your adventure continues after you fill up with one of our menu favorites, The Pig in a Parka— a kobe dog rolled up in house made pretzel with hand cut fries and awesome dipping sauces. Insider Tip-  Just want to grab an beer? Skip the food lines and go directly to our newly added beer bar in the seating area.

 

3: Mid Mountain Lodge

It's hard to beat taking in the views of the expansive deck at the historic Mid Mountain Lodge on a spring day. Not only can you enjoy a cold Park City ONE Amber while relaxing in our newly added lounge style seating, but you can now enjoy a cocktail, glass of wine or a full strength beer at the Public House on Mid Mountain Lodge.

Get there early so you can snag one of these cozy seats, wrap yourself up in a furry blanket and order one of our signature cocktails curated locally with spirits from Alpine Distillery. Our go-to favorite— The Ore Rush made with spiced Charcoal, Alpine Persistent Vodka and lemon. Get your cameras ready for this one!
