Backyard Bar & BBQ

A new al fresco dining establishment that opened mid-December just in time for the winter ski season. Located on the back patio of the resort, The Backyard Bar & BBQ offers guests a new year-round casual dining experience with ski-in/ski-out outdoor dining in the winter and poolside convenience during the summer.

The Backyard Bar & BBQ features a “blues, brews and BBQ” concept, with a menu offering traditional barbeque favorites including St. Louis smoked ribs, brisket and pulled pork sandwiches cooked with an on-site smoker, a selection of house-made BBQ sauces, wood-fired oven-baked pizzas, traditional burgers and bratwurst along with home-style side dishes and desserts. A seasonal beverage program with saloon-inspired cocktails and local craft beer selections is also offered. During the winter season, the restaurant will offer après ski food and beverage specials to guests stepping off the adjacent slopes, and casual outdoor family cookouts during the summer months.
