Right next to the Town Lift in Park City, High West is billed as the world’s first and only ski-in/ski-out gastro-distillery. Warm up at the bar (it’s made of reclaimed wood from a 1904 Salt Lake bridge) and order their chicken pot pie and a barrel-aged Manhattan. If you’re feeling extra-indulgent, the mac-and-cheese—made with smoked cheddar, jalapeno, and bacon—is well worth it, as is the sweet potato gratin. For a quick lesson in how small-batch spirits are made, including a look at their 250-gallon copper sill, free tours are given daily at 11:30am, 1pm, and 2:30pm. Slightly further afield (but worth the trek) in Wanship, High West’s new distillery and tasting room offers tours, whiskey tastings, and a small, Western-inflected menu for snacking.
