Gorgeous bright lodge with high windows, multiple large stone fireplaces and large eating area with food court offering a wide variety of dishes from pasta, to grilled meats, to sandwiches and soups. Comfortable cushioned chairs over soft carpeting. Nice cushy break from skiing; small bar on site.

A beautiful place to hang out, before or after skiing. Great food, afternoon live entertainment. Wish I could have a washroom like they have in my home. WOW

This huge lodge has a spacious bar area and plenty of seating for tired feet during apres ski hours. HOWEVER, don't expect an attentive staff.

Compared to many ski lodge restaurants - River Run Lodge offers a great array of food and the prices are not insane. The chili is outstanding. Great chocolate chip cookies, too. Fun for lunch - and especially nice for apres-ski! Definitely sit on the patio and watch the skier fly down the mountain!
