Mountain Dining

Keeping you properly fueled is key to a great day on the mountain, and we’re passionate about bringing you a variety of dining options to make that happen. Due to local restrictions on capacity limits, we highly recommend that guests bring their own snacks and water. Our quick service restaurants will be open and we’ve made necessary changes with your safety in mind.
