There’s a new brunch player in town this season and you won’t want to miss the tasty menu at the Snowpine Lodge.

People say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but we’re here to remind you not to forget about the ever essential, BRUNCH.

“Brunch at Swen’s is meant to be a convivial experience for all to enjoy,” says Mark Sneen, General Manager of Snowpine Lodge. “Guests will enjoy a savory and sweet selection of shared plates, such as Ricotta Pancakes, Avocado Toast, Corned Beef Hash and more, made from in-season ingredients.”

Sweet or Savory

There’s something for everyone’s brunch palate at Swen’s Restaurant. They’re serving up the breakfast classics and some tasty new items like ricotta pancakes. Or if you’re looking for the ever-popular and Instagram-able avocado toast, the Snowpine has you covered.

Catch Up with Friends

It’s almost impossible to see friends during the week. Everyone’s running around from work to errands to all sorts of things. Brunch is a great time to catch up with close friends and not feel the stress of the work week. So grab your tribe and head up to Alta. There’s no better way to catch up than over a stack of pancakes and mimosas. Which brings us to our next point…

Tasty Drinks

Boozy brunches are the only way to do a weekend brunch. And guess what? The mimosa at the Snowpine is only $5.00. In addition to the classic mimosa, there is a full menu of brunch cocktails to choose from. They have an Alta Mule, a House Made Bloody Mary, and even a Peach Bellini, oh my.

Chase Those Burger Blues Away

We’re not sure you’ll be able to find a burger anywhere else in Utah this early. Fear not protein lovers. The Snowpine Burger is on the brunch menu that starts properly at 8:00 am every weekend. So, if you’re craving a burger with shredded lettuce, pickles, American cheese and fry sauce, the Snowpine has you covered. You can even add a fried egg and keep it somewhat in the brunch category.

Hike it Out

There’s no better place to walk off that brunch than on one of the breathtaking hikes accessible from the Alta Base area. Better yet if you want to earn your brunch, hit the trails before relaxing into a great meal at the Snowpine. Learn more about summer recreation at Alta here.
