Good for a break.

It's a pretty good place to sit down and take a break from skiing, but, it can get very crowded on the weekends. $6 24oz. PBR.

This is our usual stop to warm up for a few minutes between runs. So so food but to be expected for what it is. Anyone complaining of high prices is obviously not familiar with ski resorts.

Get you hot chocolate here! Good burgers and fresh Mac n cheese. It's on the slopes people - the convenience is great. Keeps you moving and not having to get gear on and off.

After skiing down some fun runs take a couple of minutes to grab a cold beer or a hot chocolate. Prices are not reasonable and the service was good.

We stopped here a few times for drinks, but only once for lunch. Basic mountain fare which was prepared quickly and effectively. Burgers were good and the kids sandwiches were completely gone so they must have been good. Good service with friendly staff.

Only a single-occupant restroom for each sex; you may have to stand in line quite a while. Variable service: one time cheerful, another time surly. Delicious beef stew, if it's available.

What a beautiful location. You can eat or drink or both right on the frozen lake for lunch while you are skiing. Sit out on the deck. I heard from others the food is pretty good there too.

We were really looking forward to getting lunch at the boathouse. On other mountains out west I had generally had a good experience with on-mountain dining. I never have super high expectations for it though, realizing that it's generally closer to cafeteria type foods. We waited a long time event hough there was not many people down there, the food...

odd that there didn't appear to be a typical ski lodge restaurant -but this was close - small and uncrowded. Chili good - as are the fries - not much else. But you can be in and out in 30 mins.

Eating on a sunny patio overlooking the frozen lake was beautiful. Cheeseburgers were good but nothing particularly special. I would definitely go there again because it feels like a really nice place to rest and eat rather than going into the village for lunch.
