Few things are more romantic than enjoying a summer picnic while listening to live music under the stars. However, taking the time to prepare a proper picnic basket that is both delicious and convenient takes a certain amount of effort. Knowing this common complaint, number-one ski resort Deer Valley has announced a service under which resort-goers can order their own pre-made gourmet picnic baskets to be enjoyed during any of the Summer Music Series events happening at the Utah ski area. Baskets feature delectable choices such as lightly-smoked salmon or chilled petit filet of beef, antipasto of steamed artichokes with homemade aioli, imported olives, Creminelli truffled salami and pear tomatoes, double cream French Brie with a fresh baguette and fresh fruit along with delicious sweets. Vegetarian options are also available upon request.

Price options include single baskets for $42 or a basket for two at $78. Assorted beverages are available, so be sure to check the menu for details. Orders for these picnic items can be placed by calling 435-645-6613 or online. Prepayment and a 72-hour advance notice are required.

These picnic baskets are the perfect option for this upcoming holiday weekend, as Deer Valley brings two musical events to the Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheatre for the 4th of July Weekend. On Saturday July 3rd the Utah Symphony will play a “Patriotic Celebration,” and on Sunday pop group OneRepublic brings their show as part of the St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights Concert Series.
