What can you say about a refreshing root beer float, made with an assortment of root beer options on tap. It was tasty and refreshing. The Store is seriously all about anything Root Beer. Mix and match assorted root beers to go.

The rootbeer flights were great! You can taste 5 of the rootbeers on tap, it was only $5. Some of us then got rootbeer floats with our favorite. The hotel is connected and you can go in and look around.

The kids loved trying a flight of 5 root beers on tap! Then they chose their favorite for a root beer float! A fun thing to do with the kids after a full day of skiing.
