Enjoy local cuisine in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains
El Lodge’s picturesque location benefits from some of the finest fresh produce the region has to offer. You can take a load off after a busy morning on the slopes at our ski-in restaurant or indulge in decadent nibbles – as well as healthier treats – in our chic upscale restaurant. Our menus are seasonal and offer something for all, whether you have a picky palate or tiny tots to please.
If you’re dining at El Grill, you can experience dishes created just for the evening from our very own world-class chef. Sit back and take in the breath-taking views of the ski slopes and, beyond that, the Sierra Nevada mountains, as you are wined and dined amidst a beautiful backdrop.
Classic cocktails and creative concoctions
Whether you love to be adventurous or prefer old fashioned flavours, our onsite bar combines effortless style with vintage ski décor to create a relaxing, warm atmosphere for you to indulge in a tipple or two. Our skilled mixologists can offer you some of the most well-respected classic cocktails, or something a little more creative – and if you can’t find a cocktail that speaks to you on our menu, we can rustle up something off-menu too! We also offer an exquisite list of fine wines, spirits, beers and soft drinks.
All of our set menus are available to view ahead of time to allow you to plan your trip in advance, and we also offer room service from 7:00am – midnight for those quiet nights in.
