Aki’s is awesome! The pizza is great! We had pizza there for lunch two days in a row. It is a nice way to take a break from skiing. The staff is super friendly. Enjoy!

We wanted to learn how to ski and Aki’s place provided the right lesson for beginners who cant converse in Japanese. Ann sensei was very attentive. Her instructions were very clear and always careful whenever we go down the slopes. Of course I fell down...numerous times but sensei never gave up on me. Thanks to her ongoing encouragement we finally learned how to ski. Mine is not perfect yet but I promise to come again to conquer the mountain! Thanks Ann Sensei and Aki san. You guys were awesome! Ohwwwwww...the Quattro formargio pizza was soooo good! Thanks! xx B & Z from Malaysia xxMore

Great pizza and fries and the best hot chocolate and coffee! Child friendly atmosphere and wonderful service. Located in the middle of the slope, ski in and ski out for a perfect meal to keep the energy up in the powder!

After falling in powder and struggling for nearly 10 mins to get up, I have never been so thankful to see a mid mountain food stop in my life. There’s heaters to dry your gear and friendly staff. The cheeseburger was excellent and the chips...were big and chunky. Definitely worth a stop on your way down.More
