Few Options – Great Variety

It is quite hard to find "typical" mountain huts in the Canadian ski resorts. Some of the reasons for that may be the fact that most of the ski resorts focus on skiing rather than anything else; why waste time in the huts when there are great slopes to explore. Another reason could be the expensive lift ticket rates, which make you make the most of your stay.

Sunshine Mountain Lodge

Located in the Sunshine Mountain Lodge, The Chimney Corner Fireside Dining is a great place to stop by. It boasts a ton of cozy fireplaces, but also a sports bar where you can catch up on the main sport events on flat screen TVs. They mostly serve typical American fare like burgers, sandwiches, chicken wings, but also have swiss-inspired fondue on their menu. You can come here at any day time, since they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, to relax and indulge in the mountain scenery.

Eagle's Nest located on the first floor of the hotel is probably the culinary highlight of the ski resort. However, it opens at 5 pm, so it is more of a great option for dinner and hotel guests.

Lookout Lodge

Another hot spot is The Lookout Kitchen & Bar. Located on the third level of Lookout Lodge, it opens daily for lunch and has gluten-free and vegetarian dining options on offer. The Alpine Grill is adjacent to the Lookout Kitchen & Bar and is your go-to if you fancy international fare such as pizza, pasta, burritos, finger food and salads. The Sunshine Burger Company serves typical American dishes, offering yummy burgers and fresh salads, which goes alongside with the fast fare at Goat's Eye Grill.

Creekside Bar & Grill right at the base is pretty convenient to pick up a small snack on your way up the mountain. It offers all-day breakfast, delicious thin-crust pizzas and more, while you can listen to live music all season long. Check it out for an après-ski drink and snack, and take advantage of happy hour specials.
