Got a food truck?  Next season, Steamboat will. And it will service skiers and boarders on the mountain!

Coming next ski season, Steamboat’s parent company, Alterra Mountain Company, is excited to announce that they will have a food truck covering the ski mountain (“Taco Beast”) and a completely renovated base area restaurant (“Timber & Torch”), formerly the Bear River Bar & Grill.

“Guests are going to be delighted when they see the improvements Alterra Mountain Company and Steamboat Ski Resort are investing in,” said Rob Perlman, president, and chief operating officer of Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation. “Steamboat wasn’t shy about asking for changes in our base area, and the response from our new parent company has been overwhelmingly supportive. This is just the beginning for Steamboat, and it’s an exciting beginning.”

Details on Steamboat’s two food and beverage projects:

Timber & Torch

The base area restaurant and bar experience will be transformed with the complete overhaul of the Bear River into Timber & Torch. The centerpiece restaurant for Gondola Square will be renovated inside and out with expanded indoor seating for 290, a new outdoor heated patio, two indoor/outdoor bars, an exterior fireplace and a new outdoor BBQ. Terrace seating is expanded as the Umbrella Bar is removed to provide more space for guests soaking in the sun. Timber & Torch, named for the resort’s legendary trees and Olympian heritage, will feature bistro-inspired food, including an open-face steak sandwich, the T&T Rachel, hand-cut Parmesan fries, drunken mussels in locally brewed beer, flatbreads, and charcuterie boards. In addition to an extensive craft beer lineup, Timber & Torch’s bars will serve signature craft cocktails. Timber & Torch will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner starting winter 2018/19. Construction will begin as soon as the resort closes in April, and guests visiting Steamboat during the summer season will see first-hand Timber & Torch come to life. Please note: Due to construction, Bear River will not be open during the summer.

Taco Beast

Taking the food truck to new levels, Steamboat announces the Taco Beast, an on-mountain, roaming snowcat redefining “slopeside” dining. The Taco Beast will serve carne asada and al pastor trail tacos, the resort’s take on street tacos, breakfast burritos, esquites (Mexican street corn on the cob) and Mexican-style beer. The Taco Beast will begin serving on-mountain in summer 2018 and will continue to offer trailside service in both winter and summer seasons. Guests can find out more information about the Taco Beast including expected locations, dates and times

We will keep you posted as anything new is announced.  It's clear that with Alterra Mountain Company that Steamboat will only get better!
