What can I say, it’s one of the perks of being a good skier to get to this place at the summit of WVV. The cocoa is great, food is decent but the real benefit is the view. Very hard to beat!

Cute place to warm up at the top of the mountain. Food is okay, but Don't place an order unless you are ready for a verbal assault.

It used to be a Swiss-themed restaurant, which was part of the attraction, but now it just serves okay basic American food, which is overpriced. Cafeteria-style. Great views from the deck.

Used to stop here a lot a few years ago but stopped as they took away the cheese fondue from the menu and everything is so overpriced. It does have nice ambiance and it's perfect for just thawing out and/or using the restrooms.

Hot Chocolate, good food, great views. What's not to like? Perfect to take a quick hot chocolate break and warm up from Skiing. It's even better when you take a break and get some sun when spring skiing. Love this place.

Top notch food, best mac and cheese we have ever had. The pulled pork sandwich is to die for. The service staff is very friendly and always smiling no matter how long the line is.

The Schwendi continues to be our favorite ski lodge. The views are great on a clear day. The baked goods are very tasty. You must try the cinnamon bun. The entries are usually very good and much more interesting than standard ski lodge food. The...More
