The High West Distillery & Saloon is the only ski-in gastro saloon and distillery in the world. Located at the foot of the Quittin' Time ski run and next to the town lift in Historic Park City, the saloon serves Western-inspired pub grub like bourbon-braised short ribs accompanied by the craft whiskeys and spirits from the High West Distillery, located 16 miles northeast in Wanship, Utah. Complimentary tours of both the saloon and distillery are available.

Recent visitors – both skiers and nonskiers – love this distillery and saloon. Both the food and the whiskeys garnered praise, as did the friendly staff. Many reviewers recommended arriving early in the day before the après-ski crowd congregates here (High West does not take reservations). 

The saloon is located next to the town lift one block off Main Street. Tours are offered daily at 11:30 a.m., and 1 and 2:30 p.m. The restaurant and general store are open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Call in advance to reserve a distillery tour in Wanship, offered Wednesday through Sunday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Whiskey tastings range from a basic core tasting at $14 to reserve and rye flights for $30. Visit the website for a complete list of products and directions to the Wanship facility.

#1 Park City Main Historic District

Park City sits in the valley between Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resort. Once a silver mining town, it has seen booms and busts, as well as a devastating fire that destroyed a large portion of the town in the late 19th century. The Main Historic District preserves its western mining heritage with a charming mix of boutiques, galleries and restaurants. The Park City Museum, located about midway on Main Street, features exhibits detailing the history of the mining town turned ski mecca and is also home to the official visitor center. What's more, a free trolley runs the length of street if your feet need a break.

Recent visitors loved the variety of shops, galleries, restaurants and bars in the Historic District, noting there's something for every taste from souvenir joints to ski boutiques. Many recommended a visit to the museum to get a feel for the town's mining history, while others complimented the free transit and the convenience afforded by bedding down in this area. Families enjoyed the historical statues along the street and the availability of clean public restrooms.
