Snowbird Restaurant and Lounge | Steamboat Springs

The Snowbird Restaurant, located slopeside at the Ptarmigan Inn, offers the best value and convenience for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Après Ski Happy Hour during ski season. Our Steamboat resort’s friendly, professional staff uses the finest ingredients available to prepare innovative, contemporary cuisine.

Outside of ski season, a daily continental breakfast is offered to all hotel guests.

For breakfast, served from 7:00 am till 11:00 am daily during ski season, our chef will prepare you one of our breakfast specialties served with fresh fruit or hash browns. We also have more traditional fare like eggs and omelets served with potatoes, toast and jelly, and your choice of bacon, sausage or ham.

If hotcakes or waffles are more your flavor for breakfast be sure to check out the Breads and Batter section of the breakfast menu. Buddy’s Belgian Waffle is a favorite, or try the Texas Toast to get you started on a fresh powder morning. You’ll be able to head out of our ski-in-ski-out Steamboat hotel feeling energized and ready to go!
