“Park City, where I have had the good fortune to live the past 15 years, is a truly special town.  It offers everything about which I am passionate- world class skiing, mountain biking, a vital and robust local farming community, and some of the best hotels and restaurants in the western U.S.  To serve as Executive Chef at The St. Regis Deer Valley is an extraordinary opportunity to grow in the culinary arts field and to further relationships with local farmers and ranchers that are the heartbeat of this beautiful region,” said Malmborg.
