There is no question that the current Covid-19 pandemic has changed so many things. Our beloved ski and snowboard industry is not the same. Travel has suffered greatly and so to has the food and beverage industry. Combined, they make up a huge component of a good ski vacation. After all, you need to get to your ski destination and once there, you will definitely need to eat. Nonetheless, despite these prevailing issues, there is some good to come out of the chaos. It has forced those within the industry to pivot in order to survive.
Lodge at Spruce Peak Unveils New Dining Options
Creative juices have been flowing at ski resorts across North America since they were forced to shut down early last winter due to coronavirus. Last week, we showed you how Snowbasin has made many improvements for their 80th anniversary season. With safety and the overall experience in mind, they are still getting creative after all these years. Shifting the focus East, The Lodge at Spruce Peak, located at Stowe Mountain Resort has unveiled new dining options for this winter season. Featuring a sushi bar and private igloos your Stowe Mountain après-ski experience will most certainly be elevated.
Private Igloos Highlight New Spruce Peak Après-Ski Experience
This winter season, the Lodge at Spruce Peak announced an all new après-experience highlighted by fresh sushi, elevated libations and their new private outdoor igloos. Après-ski in an igloo...sign me up! Spruce Peak Lodge has taken their igloos to another level. Amidst spectacular views of Mount Mansfield, you can enjoy upscale après dining options such as S’mores, Fondue, gourmet hot chocolate and more!
There is also the new Mansfield Terrace Sushi Bar featuring the freshest sushi on the slopes. If you are interested in booking an igloo, select “1 Guest” to book. Igloos are charged with one rental fee, not by party size.
Enjoy Authentic Vermont après-ski at the WhistlePig Pavilion
Just the idea of the WhistlePig Pavilion sounds spectacular. You really can't go wrong with a heated outdoor bar area named after a great whiskey brand, right? This is especially true when said bar is serving cocktails made with WhistlePig rye whiskey. Oh, and did I mention they are pairing them with fire-baked raclette cheese. I can't think of anything better après-ski than an Old Fashioned paired with ooey, gooey raclette cheese. They even have raclette nachos! Sounds outrageous.
Have you tried out the new igloos or WhistlePig Pavilion at the Lodge at Spruce Peak? If so, let us know what you think in the comments section below. My wife and I plan on visiting again really soon and when we do, I know she'll be wearing her new All About Après Microfleece along with her Après All Day Beanie. Soft, comfortable and so stylish, they are the perfect combination for transitioning right from the mountain to après-ski.
