Mud Season is a Great Time to Dine in the Alpenglobes in Park City

Mud Season is a Great Time to Dine in the Alpenglobe in Park CityMud Season is in the beginning stages in Park City. Mud Season is a term used by Park City locals to refer to Spring in Park City. A time when snow begins to thaw and fewer and fewer visitors are seen in public spaces around town. The beginning of a tranquil off-season where the weather gets just a bit warmer and entices you outside but it might not be so warm that you spend long periods out there without being bundled up. 

A season where dining al Fresco sounds so fun, but the temperatures just aren't quite so friendly for a table outdoors to enjoy a full fine dining experience. This is where Alpenglobes come in. They give the ability to take in the unmatched beautiful surroundings of Park City while staying warm and cozy and enjoying an amazing meal. Check out these Alpenglobe dining experiences around Park City. 

Park City Alpenglobe Dining


The Montage is well known for its panoramic views and great food. The best place to enjoy the views of course is on the deck from the two exclusive Alpenglobes. The globes are available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There is an a la carte menu specially structured for the globe dining experience. Dinner reservations offer a special 5-course tasting menu only available in the globes. The five-course meal focuses on luxury items and locally sourced foods such as the Wagyu beef. There is a rental fee for the globes and a food and beverage minimum per guest. 

Stein Eriksen Lodge

Stein Eriksen Lodge was one of the first Park City locations to offer Alpenglobe dining. They have six Alpenglobes that are reservation only. The globes offer 360-degree views of the mountains and can be reserved for 90-minute dining or wine-tasting experiences. The full Stein Eriksen Lodge menu is available for Alpenglobe dining. You can make reservations online or at the hostess stand starting at 11:15 am. The last day of globe reservations is April 15, the resort will reopen on May 10. 


Grappa offers a globe on the patio with views overlooking Main Street in Old Town. If you enjoy people-watching with your breathtaking scenery this is the place to be. The patio is a hotspot at Grappa during the summer and with the globe all year. The globe is much easier to snag in mud season. Spring is a time when Grappa experiments with a new seasonal menu. Sometimes they send new menu ideas out to guests for free only expecting an honest review in return. The amuse bouche in the Alpenglobe is only available at this table. The globe only offers two reservations per night. Park City is lucky to have been able to keep Grappa after the fire. They have only been open a year post-fire but have offered the same amazing dishes everyone expects and loves. 

Mud season may not sound like an optimal time to be in Park City, but for the locals, it is something very special. A time when things quiet down and the population sort of dwindles just for a brief few weeks but an optimal time for locals to enjoy activities that are usually incredibly busy during peak visiting hours.
