Ahhh, shoulder season, or mud season, or “locals come out of hiding” season is upon us in Park City. The snow is melting, tourists are gone, and Park City returns back to its more normal, quiet state of being.
Accordingly, some restaurants adjust hours, close down for time off after a busy ski season, or do a bit of spring cleaning. Here is a list of shoulder season hours for members of the Park City Area Restaurant Association.
