Sitting atop 11,000-foot Hidden Peak enjoying a meal as impressive as the 360-degree views of the Wasatch Mountains will become a reality when Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort opens a new mountaintop facility at the top of the iconic Tram.
The Hidden Peak facility will also offer cafeteria dining and space for special events (including weddings), a coffee shop, retail space, Ski Patrol headquarters and restrooms.
“This building fulfills one of Dick Bass’s original dreams for the resort – a mountaintop rotating restaurant,” said Snowbird President Bob Bonar. “This is going to be a magnificent facility that will be a can’t-miss for Utah visitors.”
Construction will take place over three summers – with a scheduled opening of fall 2015. The building will be centered atop Hidden Peak. The original Hidden Peak building, which houses the Ski Patrol, a warming hut and restrooms will be removed prior to the opening of the new facility.
Skiers and snowboarders exiting from the Tram will have the option of going directly onto snow or walking into the new Hidden Peak building to prepare for their day on the mountain, get information or grab a bite to eat.
