Alta Peruvian Lodge (Alta, UT)

Among locals it is known as the P-Dog. It’s a fitting name for the slightly scruffy, stoically Alpine, and handsomely utilitarian, yet family-friendly atmosphere the Peruvian exudes. In the lobby you’ll find families playing scrabble, munching on fresh-baked cookies, and reading The New Yorker. There are ping-pong tournaments at night and one of the best après hot tub scenes in the canyon. The Peruvian is decidedly lowbrow, but it is this warmth and hominess that brings families back year after year.

The Peruvian is located downhill from everything else at Alta and it’s location fits it’s lowbrow persona. The lodge sits at the base of Alta’s Westward Ho, a tree skier’s dream that blows in deep and always holds fresh snow long after a storm. Finishing your day with a powder run is par for the course at this skier’s lodge. Drop your boards off at the in-house rental shop and have them professionally tuned with their world-class Wintersteiger ski service. They offer the only ceramic base and side edging service in the canyon. Then take it upstairs afterwards to the bar for appetizers and beers with locals, guests, and employees all of whom just want to talk skiing. Doubles start at $238-$394 per person per night, breakfast, lunch, and dinner included.
