The Summit

The Summit, the crown jewel of Snowbird’s mountain improvement projects, will greet Aerial Tram riders atop Hidden Peak at 11,000-feet offering unmatched 360-degree views of the resort and the surrounding mountains. The completion of this facility realizes Dick Bass’s original vision for creating a mountain-top guest oasis.

This 23,000 square foot facility houses an upscale cafeteria-style restaurant that will serve a fresh, healthy and hearty daily menu. The interior dining area can accommodate up to 400 guests within its two-story design. In addition to the luminous interior, a 10,000 square-foot deck provides additional outdoor seating on bluebird days. Year-round services at The Summit will also include restrooms facilities, retail outlet and a guest service kiosk. The second level of The Summit and adjacent outdoor decks are available for private functions, group meetings and weddings. Scheduled opening is December 15, 2015.
