Marmot has done some amazing things with the hill. The new fast lifts make it seem that it's never busy - even though the hill is totally full. No waiting in long lines. And good job on Tres Hombres!!

Short lift lines and a large area with a lot of different terrain for all ski levels. Bring your own food if you want your kids to go to college!

Great mountain to ride when the snow is good. The lifts are fast, so there's no lineups. Ski in/ski out parking, the lodges are great and there are no flat spots! It's a little small and there isn't a ton of highly challenging terrain, but...More

Hi Rach, Yes, the restaurants and cafeteria's all offer gluten free options. I'd personally recommend the 'Super Bowl' in the lower cafeteria - quinoa, fresh vegetables and your choice of Chicken/Beef or Tofu!
