This self-serve restaurant at the base of the mountain acts as the perfect basecamp for skiers and their families—to meet up, and to grab quick, delicious food. If you don’t ski, this is also the best spot to watch the action outside, through floor-to-ceiling windows.
Popular choices include the Alyeska Specialty Burger combos, with Alaska themes such as the Crow Creek (with roasted garlic spread) or the Denali (with Applewood smoke bacon, sautéed mushrooms and cheddar). You can also choose fortifying, bone-warming lunches such as pizzas, chili or smoked salmon chowder. Most options range from about $9–$15.
