Your quick escape from anything ordinary with one of the most uniquely built and situated mountain lodges on earth. Take in stunning, panoramic views to the sounds of a crackling fire while dining on delectable sandwiches, grilled meats and fresh salads. One twelve-minute lift ride is all it takes. Dining options both inside and out. Great place for skiers, riders and more adventurous foot passengers looking to enjoy a scenic open-air chairlift.

Novice and non-skiers are welcome to experience John Paul Lodge! Sightseeing tickets are available to ride up and ride down the John Paul Express Quad.
