Marmot Basin is world class and should definitely be tried out if you're a fan of the ski hill. Great hill for beginners to the best riders. Great place!

We went skiing here in late April. The conditions and weather were perfect. No lineups at the lifts, lunch in the parking lot. A perfect ski trip. This is our favorite ski resort. We will definitely be back next year!

Hi Rach, Yes, the restaurants and cafeteria's all offer gluten free options. I'd personally recommend the 'Super Bowl' in the lower cafeteria - quinoa, fresh vegetables and your choice of Chicken/Beef or Tofu!
