Apres Ski

Periodically during the winter season, we'll host a wine or beer tasting reception for our guests from 5-6 pm.  Light appetizers will be matched with specially selected wines or beers.  Last evening we hosted an Epic Beer tasting. Epic is a specialty beer brewed in Salt Lake City.  Our baker made pretzels  to go with pâté de maison and a cheese board.

If you miss one of these events, talk to Gregg, our dining room manager about our wine list.  Gregg travels annually to wine regions all over the world, most recently New Zealand and South Africa.  The Pacific Northwest is a favorite region and a recent addition to the wine list from this region is a Pinot Noir from Erath Winery in Willamette Valley. Another new addition to the list and a favorite of Gregg's-- "the best white wine I have ever had"-- is  Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc, 2010, New Zealand.

Of course the Sitzmark is always a great spot to wet your whistle.  Try Dan's party margarita, a house specialty that's a great start to a relaxing evening at Alta Lodge after a day on the slopes.
