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.

I stayed with my family for a long weekend. The Peruvian is perfectly set up for a great ski vacation. It's convenient in every way, charming and comfortable. The inclusive meal plan is great. The food is good and having it included means no time lost to shopping, cooking, cleaning, etc. The rooms are "cozy" but nice public areas ensure... More

This is such a great ski lodge right at the base of Alta. This is our fourth time coming back here and absolutely love it. The decor is a throw back to early days and the perfect setting for a ski trip. Sitting in the lobby is incredible looking up the mountain and having a few well earned apres drinks.... More

The Peruvian is awesome! Classic, clean, awesome breakfast, and of course great skiing out the door. If you're coming to Utah for powder skiing there's no better way to experience it than staying at the Peruvian and skiing Little Cottonwood.

My friend and I started a "girls' trip" tradition there last year and we hope it continues for many many years. Warm, cozy, clean and the food is great, in addition to the fact that Alta offers amazing skiing. Most of the people we met seem to be repeat guests - it seems like once you visit the Peruvian once,... More

I guess my title says it all. The Peruvian is the ultimate ski location, and they have done a lot to create a nice atmosphere. Not much they can do about the size of the rooms, but it would seem that they could help their guests alot by putting a lot more juice on their internet connetion. I sort of... More
