Good for: Bar scene
Description: This Austrian inspired ski bar will win you over with it's old world charm and cozy ambience. In the winter ski season, 18 taps of frosty, locally brewed beers are offered here along with a long list of hot and cold cocktail drinks. Don't miss the amazing Elk Frost, a special recipe created by the Elysian Brewmaster! Find a table near the roaring fire and order up one of the best stone fired pizzas or a tall order of nachos from the Snorting Elk Deli. Don't leave without our famous cookies! Apres skiing bliss is here! One thing is for certain at The Snorting Elk- it's one of those places filled with character that you'll always be back to visit. During the summer, "the Elk" has more limited operations, but still offers the same old world charm. Enjoy outdoor and indoor seating. Great beer and drink service. A special summer time bar menu is available, as our Snorting Elk Deli is closed in the summer season. Stop by after your hike, round of disc golf, or mountain bike adventure to cool off and recharge. The Snorting Elk is an integral part of the Pacific Northwest ski scene. It was named Honorable Mention for the Best Ski Bar in the 2010 Resort Awards by Skiing Magazine. Also voted "Best ShotSki" by Skiing Magazine!

Great pizza and good selection of beers. Very reasonable. Friendly staff and atmosphere. Great after a long day in the snow.

It is an old fashioned pub type atmosphere. The food is good! They have a cool bar and fireplace and it's very friendly. Only annoying thing is the music and how loud they play it.

Only complaint is the price of liquor, but hey, it's the mountain. Good beer selection, good barkeeps, good crowd. And you can ski to the front door (stay high and left and circle round the back).

Love this bar. Great atmosphere, good food, fun bar scene, live music, and it is snowing outside! We have come here for years and it is a timeless classic.

We eat lunch here about twice a week, all ski season long. Sitting in front of the wonderful fire, eating great sandwiches, soup, chili, etc. , with a very nice local beer , nothing wrong with this picture. Service is good and the staff are wonderful. It's ambiance can't be beat.
