From the moment I stepped into the Alta Peruvian Lodge, I could tell there was something special there. It was literally like stepping back in time- warm, European-lodge like feeling with an amazing view and grand fireplace. Not to mention the variety of guests hanging out and chatting it up over a cup of joe. Although I was there on... More

I am still in a bit of a shock from how high the price was for the quality offered. First the positive, service is polite and there is a convenient shuttle between the lodge and the slopes, even though it is a five minutes walk. Now to reality, although charging Four Seasons prices, this is so far from. It is... More

We have stayed at the Alta Peruvian for over 20 years; so of course we think it is great or we would not continue to go back there! It is affectionately called "Camp Peruvian" because so many of the people we see there return year after year … a place to be with like minded skiers having an "old school"... More

Hot tub post skiing was great. Lunch menu could use a little variety but dinner was great. Enjoyed meeting people from all over the country at dinner. Van service to all lifts is very convenient. Ski shop guys rock!

A little treasure! Such a great atmosphere. Very chill and kind of old school. So charming. No TVs in the rooms because who wants to be in the room? The point is we are here to ski, eat, sleep repeat. Can't wait to come again

I absolutely love the old school skiing experience at the Peruvian at Alta. We stayed there for 3 nights 1/17-1/20 and had a great time. The staff is super helpful. The food is delicious and the lounging area is so great. We enjoyed meeting and chatting with some of the other guests after an amazing day of skiing. My only... More

Like a backcountry cabin experience but with more!! The hotel staff were helpful and friendly. All the meals through out the week were excellent!! If you are looking for a true ski experience and not your cinder block hotel this is the place to go!! I'll be back!!

Alta is all about the skiing -- you don't go there for any of the frills that some of the flasher ski areas provide. Having said that, it's still pretty luxurious to come back to the lodge after a hard day on the slopes to find freshly-baked cookies laid out for you, steaming hot pools ready to soothe your tired...

The other reviews say it all, and please ignore the one about it being a frat house, those people belong at Disney. The Alta Peruvian is the best! Just one constructive comment: please modernize the heating system. During our stay over MLK Day 2014 the outside temps were 15-40F, and the temps in our room 80F, with the heat turned... More

We love the Peruvian! We found this spot a couple years ago after trying a few of the other Alta lodges. We usually come twice a year, once just the two of us and once with about a dozen family and friends. The staff is friendly, the food is great for the price, and you like another reviewer said, "you... More
