The truth of the matter is you can’t go all day skiing without getting some food in you, unless of course you’re into starvation. But the term “on mountain dining” can mean a whole slew of things to a whole slew of people.
In my younger years “on mountain dining” meant a PB&J in my pocket with a handful of snow for hydration. Later on it meant chili-cheese fries or a huge plate of nachos shared among a group of college buddies. While I can often be found eating a PROBAR while riding the lifts I rarely pass up an opportunity to enjoy an on mountain meal with friends or family.
One of my favorite places and likely one of the most scenic spots among all of Utah’s ski resorts is the Lookout Cabin at The Canyons Resort. Lookout, as it’s name implies, offers some fantastic views in all directions. Perched atop Lookout Peak its deck commands a southern view and on warm sunny days a very nice place to enjoy a meal with unbeatable vistas.
