A long day on the hill requires a stop for lunch to refuel for the afternoon, or reward yourself after hitting the slopes hard all morning and enjoy a leisurely lunch.
There are several spots in Alta to eat lunch. From a quick stop at a coffee shop for a bite to eat to a cafeteria to a white tablecloth lunch, there are options for every diner. Goldminer’s Daughter Lodge, Alta Lodge, Alta’s Rustler Lodge and Alta Peruvian Lodge all serve lunch even if you are not a guest of the lodge. If you are a guest at the Alta Peruvian Lodge lunch is included in the price of your stay. Enjoy breathtaking views as you enjoy a gourmet meal at the base of the mountain.
If you want a quick bite to eat stop by Baldy Brews located in the first floor of Watson Shelter near the Collins mid-station or Alta Java located at the Albion Base. Both offer espresso, hot chocolate, tea and baked goods and snacks to warm you up on those cold winter days. Both the Italian hot chocolate at Baldy Brews and the Susie Special at Alta Java should not be missed!
For burgers, sandwiches, chicken fingers, chili and more head to Watson Cafe, located on the second floor of Watson Shelter near the Collins mid-station, Alf’s Restaurant, at the base of the Sugarloaf Lift or Albion Grill located at the Albion Base. These cafeteria-style restaurants offer mid-mountain dining, beautiful views and easy access to get back on the hill.
The white tablecloths, incredible views, easy access and of course slippers to rest your feet from those ski boots make Collins Grill a one of a kind mountain dining experience. Collins Grill offers a full-service European mountain bistro-grill menu with wine and spirits. There are daily “chef specials” and a “Young Skier” menu is available upon request.
Whether you want to grab a quick bite to eat, relax for leisurely lunch, dine mid mountain or at the base, Alta offers a dining option for every skier on the mountain.
