Join us for an Amazing Mountaintop Meal, Served Fresh and with Great Value

Northern Lights Alpine Kitchen holds its inspiration close. Our buffet-style restaurant serves hit-the-spot favourites that beckon back to core alpine cuisine, from classic ski lodge comfort food to the hearty packed-away meals of early mountain guides. Prepared with fresh, local ingredients and served on the summit of Sulphur Mountain, a meal at Northern Lights is an unforgettable experience all its own.
