Once used as nurses’ barracks during World War II, the structure that is now the Alta Peruvian Lodge was broken down, hauled up Little Cottonwood Canyon & melded back together. By the 1948 ski season, the Peruvian Lodge was open. In 1970 John Cahill purchased the lodge and gave the Peruvian many well-deserved upgrades. Today the Alta Peruvian Lodge is a charming and authentic European-style ski lodge that offers excellent food in their all-inclusive dining plan, many amenities and a friendly staff. Not to mention the Alta Peruvian Lodge is steps or a short free shuttle ride from “The Greatest Snow on Earth.” Every year the staff at the Alta Peruvian Lodge witness the cultivation of new friendships and camp-like traditions.
The Alta Peruvian Lodge includes breakfast, lunch and dinner in their room rates. Indulge with a breakfast buffet including a made-to-order omelet bar, grab lunch and reenergize for the afternoon and end the day, after a dip in the pool, hot tubs or sauna, with a gourmet 4-course dinner.
And of course, they know why you came to Alta so the Peruvian Lodge is equipped with a full line of demo ski equipment for beginner to expert skiers. Their certified ski technicians are there for you at their full service Wintersteiger tune shop. This past summer the Peruvian Lodge completed a re-build of their guest locker room. They tore out the old 9-inch wide lockers and built 15-inch wide lockers to accommodate bigger skis.
The Peruvian Lodge bar is a local favorite and proof that you really can get a real drink in Utah. Enjoy conversations with locals and other lodges guests while noshing on free appetizers and a good drink. The bar is open nightly from 3:30pm to 10pm. Other amenities to make your stay even more enjoyable at the Peruvian are free shuttle service, 24 hour coffee service, free bottled water and delicious Milano cookies.
If you’re a Utah resident there’s good news for you, but keep it quiet, on select dates this season, the Peruvian Lodge is offering exclusive rates to all residents of Utah.
