If there’s one thing I like after a great day on the slopes, it’s a nice glass of wine or some Schnapps liqueur in my hot chocolate. If there’s one thing I don’t like after a great day on the slopes it’s facing an inflatable “Coors Light” can towering over me 20 feet tall. Can you imagine the chaos of a throng of college aged Spring Break skiers that congregated around the base of it? Seriously, you would have thought they were giving away free samples from the way the partiers were acting. Now imagine me and my two elementary school aged sons, with our ski gear trying to navigate through these crowds one afternoon after skiing. This scene completely turned our family away from Spring Break skiing for a few years until we discovered the family friendly atmosphere at Park City Mountain Resort.
Because of its history, Utah has a reputation for being difficult to obtain an adult beverage. The laws have become less conservative in recent years, so let me allay your concerns. In the past, if you went to bar and ordered a drink, customers faced an extra charge for “joining the club.” This was a one time fee of $2-5 which bought patrons a membership in the club which was previously required to order alcohol. There is no longer any requirement to be a member of a club in order to purchase alcoholic beverages.
This snowmama prefers to purchase my potent potables and bring them back to the condo to enjoy in the hot tub. For beer, you can purchase all your favorite brands at the grocery store but remember it is only 3.2% alcohol by volume. You are likely accustomed to 5% alcohol by volume in your beer at home depending on where you live. As Snowmama Heather advises: no self-respecting party goer would ever bring grocery store beer to a social gathering. For stronger beer, wine and liquor, you will need to make a stop at the state run liquor store. There are four stores in the Park City area and some hotels also have a contract with the state to sell wine to guests. The most convenient liquor store to Park City Mountain Resort is located at 1550 Snow Creek Drive, Park City, 84060 with hours of operation: Monday-Saturday 11 am-10 pm.
If you have a tight schedule or chose to go car-less at a slopeside resort, check out Park City Grocery Delivery by The Grocery Girls. They will do all your grocery shopping and deliver to your hotel or resort and they will deliver beer, wine and liquor.
And of course, the #1 rule for everywhere:
