Skiing with a grumbling stomach is distracting and makes the slopes nothing more than a path to lunch, but a hearty breakfast can lead to an epic morning on the mountain. Here are a few local morning choices that guarantee success on the hill.

Sit and Stay

The Corner Store
1325 Lowell Ave.

Slopeside at Park City Mountain Resort, this place offers a wonderfully convenient location. Try the Southwestern burrito with eggs, pepper jack cheese, chorizo, and avocado for a spicy and filling start to the day.

1900 Park Ave.

Perfect for those driving into Park City for the day in need of a big breakfast before hitting the slopes. Squatters’ huevos rancheros are a hit for locals and out-of-towners, loaded with black beans, jack cheese, and smothered in pork chili Colorado.

If you’re staying in Deer Valley, put your snow boots on and walk a few steps to this casual café serving up the divine food for which Deer Valley is known. Everything on the menu is fantastic; try the "Skiers Breakfast", a  skillet baked Heber Valley juustoleipa cheese, creminelli prosciutto, apple fig chutney, toasted housemade baguette, fresh arugula. 

The Eating Establishment

Grab and Go
