As a long time guest at The Peruvian I am pleased to report that the kitchen is back to tops in Alta. Was there before Christmas to after New Years.... Yum Yum.... Staff is still the friendliest on the "hill." My slogan: If you want it, just ask! You'll get it!

Wonderfully Rustic , with a large lounge & free tea/coffee/hot chocolate all day. The bedrooms are fairly small , however that is immaterial as the skiing is so good. The everpresent ski shuttle was welcome , even though it was only a 500 metre walk to the lift The bar is lively with live music twice a week The outside... More

The Peruvian is a wonderful place to stay at Alta. It maintains the rustic charm of an old fashioned ski lodge. The service is warm and friendly and a real sense of unpretentiousness permeates the place. One can make new friends and always see old returning acquaintances. The meals are family style and there is plenty. The warm cookies freshly... More

Thoughts of the Peruvian always bring a smile to my face. It's an "Old School" soul of skiing kind of place, very historic. Rooms are small because you're only going to sleep in them, you're going to meet new people. Wonderful bar, out-door pool and hot-tub, and great meals. Large living rooms to hang out in and close to the... More

Heard incredible things about this historic lodge and experienced it all ourselves. The friendly staff, the amazing food and communal dining experience, the perfect location , the après ski perfect meet-up hot tub and the bar where locals flock. Met a ton of people from all over the world some on their 7th visit. Why would you stay anywhere else?

Utah has the best snow and Alta is the best of Utah. Warm, cozy, friendly and great food too. There are slopes for every level skier. You will steep and deep regularly or you can read in the lobby by the giant fireplace.

While the Peruvian may not be the fanciest place in Alta, it is certainly the most lively, and has the most character. It is simple, clean, the food is good, the service is great. Repeat visits are common, with many returning year after year for over 30 years. This is a place where skiing is celebrated, even revered as a... More

I've stayed at the Peruvian 4 times now, and it's been outstanding every time. Great staff, very accomodating, great food and between the shuttle and the snow bridge, the location is perfect. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all great - and the chef is happy to make tweaks or changes to taste. I've made some good friends on every trip,... More

Great ski lodge with a good vibe. Very friendly and attentive staff. Rooms are basic, smallish but comfortable and very clean. Best is the location adjacent to the slopes at Alta. Hot tub and pool are fantastic and located so you can almost ski into them. Great little funky bar. The meals are excellent.
