Great Summer Mountain Towns

by Sarah Tuff

Park City, Utah

The hills are alive with: Luxury

Get elevated: Long after the finely combed snow of Deer Valley ski resort has melted, the adjacent town of Park City retains its luster. Sure, the towering Wasatch Mountains, stitched with hiking and biking trails, indicate a hardcore sports haven. But having all of Hollywood descend upon the town every winter for Sundance has had an enlivening (or, shall we say, upmarket) effect. More than a dozen spas soothe the former mining town and even more galleries show off their Picassos, Rembrandts, and Renoirs. Instead of just the burgers and beers of some mountain towns, Park City's eateries serve seared foie gras, Kobe flank steak fajitas, and silky sabayon. Top picks are an outdoor table at Grappa for upscale Italian fare and chipotle and caramelized pineapple–glazed spareribs at its sister restaurant, Chimayo. Through August, Deer Valley treats concertgoers to outdoor performances by the Utah Symphony and Opera. At the Hotel Park City, guests choose from 100 suites with goose-down duvets, Bulgari bath products, and balconies.

Peak time: June through August
