Alta Peruvian Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 April 2014

I guess my title says it all. The Peruvian is the ultimate ski location, and they have done a lot to create a nice atmosphere. Not much they can do about the size of the rooms, but it would seem that they could help their guests alot by putting a lot more juice on their internet connetion. I sort of gave up after a while.

My wife and I have been coming to the Peruvian for many years and it never ceases to amaze us. It is perfectly in synch with the skiing experience on the mountain. The scenario and the location are spectacular, the staff exceptionally youthful and friendly, and the food excellent. The lodged is visited by good skiiers who are glad to share their knowledge with the newbi's.

One facet of the lodge that might surprise you is how many new friends you make each year. The concept of mixing you with new fellow diners each evening at 8 seated tables is an excellent way of getting you to mix with the other guests. It really creates a sense of comradry amoung the Peruvian guests.

If you are interested in glitz go to Deer Valley, if you are interested in skiing a great mountain with new friends, go to the Peruvian at Alta.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the mountain get warm afternoon sun and are delightful to return to after a long day of...

First trip to the Peruvian in over 20 years. The place has just as much old world charm as it always had. The location is super, the food is good and plentiful and the staff is great! There is plenty of interaction with the other guests in the pool, hot tub, dining room or lounge areas. The other guests are truly nice and interesting to meet. The rooms are basic, but clean and nice. As long as this is what you are expecting and not a plush hotel room, you won't be disappointed. It is all part of the overall experience and ambiance.

This was our first stay at the Alta Peruvian and it was just what we hoped for...friendly, relaxed and comfortable. The food was excellent and we enjoyed the "family dining" experience and the opportunity to meet some incredibly nice people.

The only surprise was the bar. We understand that there is a long tradition that the bar is populated with locals, but as guests we found it pretty unwelcoming (if the "locals only" sign behind the bar is meant to be amusing, it isn't) as well as very noisy (if your in a room along the same corridor) and not smelling too good after being filled with young people straight from the slopes for several hours. And there's the popcorn littering the corridor the next morning.

Anyway, this we meant we spent more time round the bar downstairs, which was fine and very friendly. We're definitely planning to return.

Room Tip: Away from the bar...avoid rooms 50 - 60.

I've been coming the Peruvian for many years and continue find it a warm, welcoming lodge filled with dedicated skiers. With the family style dining I know I will meet interesting new people as well as renew old acquaintances. But a particular highlight for me is that lodge has a guitar for guests to check out and play. On my last visit there was a group that made use of the guitar and sang around the fireplace almost every evening—folk songs, country, blues, you name it. A great complement to full days of skiing and excellent eating.

Another great stay at the Peruvian (stayed last march). Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, clean rooms and spectacular location. Food was excellent as well (all inclusive), prime rib was excellent on buffet night and the omelette bar hit the spot each morning. Was with a large party of 14 for dinners and the staff was very accommodating. Will definitely be back, hopefully next ski season.

Room Tip: Nordic room 78 is larger than the Nordic we stayed in last year, almost a double wide room as far as...

We have been coming to the Peruvian annually for over 20 years. This place is a gem, and throw back to the days before ski lodges became all about facials, foo foo food, and non skiers. This is a skiers lodge, with vibrant common areas that people hang out in and socialize. The staff is exceptional, caring, and attentive. They treat you like family. May it NEVER change!
