While Valentine’s Day might rightly seem like a distant date on the calendar, it actually is only about two months away. And though most will likely wait a while before setting concrete plans, it certainly does not hurt to begin considering your options. As Salt Lake Valley can regrettably fill with gloomy smog during the winter months, a high-elevation restaurant in nearby Little Cottonwood Canyon could serve as an extra special place to celebrate this day. Snowbird Resort, perched loftily in the crisp air of the Wasatch Mountains, offers three choices for special Valentine’s Day dinners.
The Lodge Bistro, located at the pool level of The Lodge at Snowbird, offers dinner 5:30-9:30 on Valentine’s Day. Providing a half dozen options from each the appetizer, soup and salad, and entree categories, this special menu allows you to pick and choose the bistro-inspired meal of your desire.
The Wildflower Restaurant, on the third level of the Iron Blosam Lodge, serves it own Mediterranean Valentine’s Day menu, with a fixed appetizer, soup, and dessert, as well as a choice among three entrees.
Sitting atop the towering Cliff Lodge, The Aerie Restaurant offers a prix fixe, five-course, fine dining dinner. Those who have been to The Aerie know that, from its lofty view, to its ridiculously extensive wine list, this is one of Utah’s best restaurants. And because a bottle of wine quite logically goes with a romantic Aerie dinner, you may look into reserving a special dinner-and-lodging package.
Reservations are strongly recommended for all of these dinners.
