Brighton Resort introduces new mountain rest area and eatery

BRIGHTON, Utah — Brighton Resort recently introduced the addition of the Sidewinder Grill, a new mid-mountain rest area and eatery.

Designed by Bluebird Day Architecture and constructed by Big-D Signature, this innovative lodge features repurposed shipping containers.

The most convenient aspect of the Sidewinder Grill is its mid-mountain location. Unlike the existing lodge at the base of the mountain, this new facility is positioned just above the Snake Creek ski lift. Skiers and snowboarders can now enjoy a range of on-mountain options, including grab-n-go food items, without having to descend to the base facilities.

“In the future, we plan to have a ‘chondola’, a chair lift/gondola lift that will take people to the area so they can either ski or just ride it up,” said Jared Winkler, director of marketing for Brighton Resort. “This is a solution that was needed on the mountain; restrooms, food, and the views are spectacular.”

The single-story Sidewinder Grill spans 4,618 square feet and encompasses three shipping containers creatively transformed to suit its purpose. One container has been converted into a convenient pre-constructed restroom pod, while the other two containers have been seamlessly combined to house a spacious commercial counter-style kitchen.

In addition, the design includes two dining halls, framed with heavy timber and steel, on either side of the container module, with a capacity to accommodate more than one hundred visitors.

The Sidewinder Grill also offers a large area of exterior seating, occupying 7,600 square feet of outdoor space. These seating areas are crafted on a heated concrete terrace, offering guests a comfortable outdoor dining or relaxation experience.

Construction is expected to be completed in time for the 2023-24 winter season.
