If you decide to get together with friends or family this ski season, let Bryce Resort come to mind. Located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, Bryce allows you to enjoy the outdoors as you’ve always dreamed. And if you're looking for the perfect place to grab some grub and drinks in between your skiing adventures at Bryce, the Copper Kettle Bar & Lounge is the perfect spot. With live music and breathtaking views, you can revel in the joys of skiing and delight in the alpine-like ambiance.
The perfect après-ski place
Perhaps one of the more overlooked parts of planning the perfect ski trip is what to do when you’re not actually skiing. Activities and amenities après-ski can easily make or break your experience. That’s why Bryce Resort offers award-winning slopes coupled with dining and entertainment to remember.
In between hitting the slopes and improving your technique, what should you do to unwind and relax? With its modern rustic feel and dazzling views, the Copper Kettle Restaurant & Bar is the place to be. You can kick back and enjoy delicious food and brews as you let loose after a physically-demanding day of skiing and snowboarding.
Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner
Before you even start your day, swing by the Copper Kettle for a breakfast (opens at 8 a.m.) to tantalize your taste buds. From a more formal quiche to down home biscuits and gravy, the Copper Kettle can accommodate anyone’s breakfast cravings. Plus, everyone knows that the best way to start the day while vacationing is with a hearty breakfast to keep you going through an eventful day of recreation. Breakfast is served daily until 11 a.m.
If you miss breakfast, but want something after an early morning of skiing, lunch and dinner fare are available from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. Check out the menu to see what foods will soon become your favorites.
If you are looking for a more formal setting with a breathtaking view of the slopes, or if you’re looking to plan a private dinner or party, the large dining room is open for service Friday and Saturday evenings from 5-9 p.m. Request a table next to the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, which look at the beautifully lit ski slopes, or next to the stone fireplace. No matter your desired vibe, you can create just the right atmosphere for your gathering.
Lucky for you, the Copper Kettle Restaurant & Bar doesn’t just have great food to offer. A large selection of bottled and tap beers will quench your thirst. Seasonal local beers are featured in the bar, including Devil’s Backbone and Pale Fire. These beers can be enjoyed around the U-shape bar for optimal socializing. The new design of the bar brings you back to the good old days, but with a dash of something new and improved. Or, you can always grab a table for you and your chums.
Either way, the live music performed throughout ski season will help set the tone for a night you can all enjoy. Live music performances are also available on certain dates during the summer, so you can enjoy the entertainment after a round of golf, too.
In past years, conditions have varied, but Bryce Resort always ensures there’s plenty to do no matter the weather. There is plenty of fresh powder and established trails for every type of skier and snowboarder. The slopes offer beginner, intermediate and advanced trails. You know it’s good snow when all the runs are open for quality skiing at every turn. No matter your level of expertise, you’ll fulfill your goals of the perfect ski trip at Bryce Resort.
