Throughout the pandemic, we'll keep publishing news to help you navigate the state of travel today (like whether travel insurance covers the coronavirus), as well as stories about places for you to put on your bucket list once it's safe to start going more far-flung.

Unless you’ve been under a rock, you know that Canyons is now part of Park City, and a new gondola connects the two ski areas, making it the single largest resort in the country—7,300 acres, but who’s counting?—and Deer Valley is still here, too.

With Your Boots Still On: High West Distillery and Saloon 

Operating out of a historic stable at the base of Park City Mountain Resort’s town lift, High West has the distinction of being the country’s only ski in/ski out distillery. You can take the Quittin’ Time run straight to the saloon’s doors. Don’t forget to grab a bottle to go.

Cheap Eats: Davanza’s Pizza

Huge subs for under $8, two slices of pepperoni and a drink for $7, and a giant PBR for $3.50. These are college-town prices (the beer-can-lined walls add to the ambiance), but just a few steps from the Town Lift. If you’re going to take a lunch break, this is the spot.

Best Restaurant: Riverhorse on Main

You’re here for the atmosphere (a massive atrium with floating glass bubbles overhead) and the location (on Main Street with an expansive patio), and, of course, the food (Chef Seth Adams’ standards, like the macadamia nut halibut, are some of the most celebrated grub in town). If you’re looking for a deal, show up for happy hour (5 to 7 p.m.), when you can get a burger with truffle mustard for $10.

Up All Night: No Name Saloon

There’s no way you could still describe No Name as a hidden gem, or even a locals-only spot. The bar has been here for more than 100 years and has seen its fair share of out-of-towners over that time. But No Name is an institution, with its iconic tchotchkes (like a bomb and motorcycle hanging from the ceiling) and its wide appeal to everyone from bikers passing through to lifelong ski bums.
