TOP 5 REASONS TO VISIT THE SKY LODGE

DURING THE 2012 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL 

1. Cocktails and City Views at Sky Blue 

Recognized by USA Today as one of the “Top 10 Rooftop Bars” in the country, Sky Blue is a posh lounge on the fourth floor of The Sky Lodge that not only offers guests unsurpassed views of Main Street—an ideal spot for scoping out celebrities—but has an oversized hot tub and fireplace located on the radiantly heated patio. Sky Blue is the perfect hangout for the festival’s guests to escape from the packed parties taking place elsewhere in Park City.

This winter, Sky Blue serves up a special signature cocktail called “The Pommard”—a seasonally inspired drink made with Calvados, fresh apple cider, a touch of lemon juice, and simple syrup, infused with cinnamon and cardamom. Mmm mmm mmm! Winner of the October 2011 Park City cocktail contest, The Pommard is a creation of the Sky Blue mixology team and has been dubbed the official “Winter Cocktail of Park City” by a panel of local judges, including Salt Lake Magazine’s Food Editor Mary Brown Malouf.

Hot cocktails such as “The Irish Red,” made with Jim Beam, “Red Stag,” Baileys and coffee—along with a selection of fine wines, cognacs, and whiskies—take the edge off the winter chill and make a rendezvous on the rooftop even cozier.

2. Exquisite Dining at Easy Street 

Easy Street at The Sky Lodge has become a popular dining destination, as its hip, contemporary vibe makes it a signature restaurant in the heart of Old Town Park City. Guests can catch all the action on Main Street while in the dining room and people watch out on the patio. The cozy and rustic Bar Bohème downstairs is great for a nightcap.

Executive Chef Scott Boberek helms the kitchen, offering American-French cuisine prepared with local ingredients and seasonal produce. In addition to a hearty Cowboy Rib-Eye Steak and a juicy Easy Street Burger, the restaurant offers a fresh raw bar, serving up oysters on the half-shell, shrimp cocktail, and king crab legs. Boberek recently introduced a gluten-free menu—a rare find in Park City—offering health-conscious visitors several signature dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

3. Indulgent Amatsu Spa 

Amatsu means “heavenly” in Japanese, and Amatsu Spa derives its inspiration from Japanese-style treatments and philosophies. The warm Zen-inspired spa provides a cozy retreat from all the action of Sundance. Each therapy at Amatsu is complemented by a soak in an ofuro tub—a traditional Japanese bath that helps relax the muscles and the mind.

The spa recently introduced several new additions to its menu, including the “Nature” body treatment. This six-part ritual nourishes the skin with the spa’s new organic Red Flower product line and includes an exfoliating scrub, rejuvenating wrap, and a hydration process that leaves skin smooth and radiant. The new GM Collin Collagen Facial intensively hydrates dry winter skin and focuses on stimulating collagen to provide a noticeably tighter, firmer, and youthful look.

Amatsu Spa at the Sky Lodge ensures that each guest receives highly personalized and customized service by accommodating only a handful of guests at a time, and offers the ultimate respite from busy festival activity.

4. Easy Access to Renowned Skiing 

Park City is a world-renowned ski destination, and festival attendees looking to schuss down Park City’s perfect powder will be just minutes from the slopes when staying at The Sky Lodge. Park City Mountain Resort, named one of the top ski resorts in the country by SKI magazine, is the only resort with lift service directly to and from the town’s historic Main Street. A shuttle from the hotel can take guests to the town lift or to other Park City-area resorts nearby, including Deer Valley and The Canyons. 4

5. Luxurious and Spacious Suites 

After a long day of mingling and film screenings, guests of The Sky Lodge can retreat to their spacious suite. The one-, two- or three-bedroom flats and two-story townhouses range from 1,260 square-feet to over 2,700 square-feet. Standard amenities include grand-entry foyers, designer kitchens with granite slab countertops, spacious living areas with fireplaces, and decks with relaxing hot tubs.

The impressive Penthouse occupies the entire top floor, and floor-to-ceiling windows line the each room of the suite. The spacious radiantly heated deck wraps around the Penthouse, complete with two outdoor hot tubs, and offers the ultimate view of the majestic snow-covered mountains and the bustling Sundance crowds below.
