The base area restaurant and bar experience will be transformed with the complete overhaul of the Bear River into Timber & Torch. The centerpiece restaurant for Gondola Square will be renovated inside and out with expanded indoor seating for 290, a new outdoor heated patio, two indoor/outdoor bars, an exterior fireplace and a new outdoor BBQ. Terrace seating is expanded as the Umbrella Bar is removed to provide more space for guests soaking in the sun. Timber & Torch, named for the resort’s legendary trees and Olympian heritage, will feature bistro-inspired food, including an open-face steak sandwich, the T&T Rachel, hand-cut Parmesan fries, drunken mussels in locally brewed beer, flatbreads and charcuterie boards. In addition to an extensive craft beer lineup, Timber & Torch’s bars will serve signature craft cocktails. Timber & Torch will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner starting winter 2018/19. Timber & Torch is expected to be open on November 21 for Steamboat’s Opening Day.
