Every ski town has lots of bars. The area of Salt Lake where all the good skiing in located, Cottonwood Heights/ Sandy, does not have lots of bars. Solution….The Canyon Inn. Affectionately known to the locals as the CI or the Cougar Inn, dirty little dive has been getting ski bums good and drunk since way before my arrival in 2002.
Many a young skier has been taken from the CI by the local older felines. I have never had the fortune/mis-fortune to go down this road, but hear it is pretty damn fun. Back in the day Tuesday was officially known as ski bum night, but some large fellas from the West side started showing up and made that not so fun anymore.
Thanks to BJ Emery and Justin Barrell ski bum night is back, but now it is on Thursday night and features DJ KNUCKLZ weekly. So enjoy $1 beers and hit on some fresh meat, until it isn’t fresh anymore or the Westsiders show up again, which ever happens first.
