The World's Best Après-Ski Scenes

Post-Ski Meal Most Worth a Very Short Wait

Where: The Shooting Star Saloon, Huntsville, Utah

What'll Snow You: The first whiff of the Star Burger when it's slid in front of you.

Cool Conditions: You've burned a busload of calories today at nearby Snowbasin Ski Resort, site of the 2002 Olympic downhill events. So you deserve the Star Burger, a calorie bomb comprised of two beef patties topped with knockwurst, cheese, onions, special seasoning, mustard, ketchup, pickles, lettuce, and tomatoes. It comes on a sesame-seed bun. Don't ask how many ounces it is—owners John and Heidi Posnien have never weighed one. And don't ask for it any other way. Shooting Star, whose jukebox still works, whose ceiling is papered with dollar bills, and whose animal heads peer down on patrons while they're savoring the Star Burger, has been open since 1879 and hasn't suffered any fools since. "We are not a restaurant," the menu scoffs. "Please, no special orders." And try to ignore the fact that on said menu, the Star Burger is listed just below cigarettes.

The Cold Cash: Star Burger, $5.95, including chips
