C.S. Lewis once said, “If you look upon ham and eggs and lust, you have already committed breakfast in your heart.” It’s a slippery slope from there — one we recommend you slide right down. Especially on ski days. A solid breakfast serves the dual function of fueling your turns and adding some mass to propel you down Salt Lake's other slippery slopes.
Whether you’re skiing Alta, Snowbird, Brighton, or Solitude, and whether you’re staying downtown, in the valley, or up the canyons, you have breakfast options. Here’s our guide to fill you up before you fly down the mountain.

Here are our favorites from each:
