Busy and crowded but fun!

The outdoor firepit gets crowded fast, but the atmosphere was fun and the beer was cold... It gets crazy busy at lunchtime of course - like all ski resort lunch spots on the mountain...

Great spot to have a drink, and/or lunch on the mountain. Restaurant and bars are on the site of an old homestead. Lots of beach chairs in amphitheater setting to enjoy sunshine, music and views. One of my top five on mountain apres ski sites in North America. High recommended

They have live music everyday from lunch until close. Both guitars players are very good. One takes just about any request while the other fiddles to country/blues pretty well (just don't request Dave Matthews). The food is good and priced like your average on-mountain dining experience. The bars are great and there is even one with a little inside seating... More

We stopped here twice mid-day for a break and drinks. Good music, great views and nice atmosphere. Did not rate it higher due to expensive weak drinks.

Centrally located along the Misty Maiden run, easily accessible to all ski levels, Enjoyed sitting out on the "Beach" area to relax my tired legs, re-fuel on hearthy meals (including many gluten free options) and listen to live guitar music.

what a great spot on the mountain. Live music, great outside seating to enjoy the beautiful skies on the mountain. Only down is if you don't ski, you won't be joining us!

Good BBQ, great staff and music. Great place at the end of the day, but doesn't stay open much past 4 PM.

This was extremely convenient, right on the slopes. Food was delicious, and sitting outside having a drink listening to a guy play the guitar was great.
