The wood-clad Gondola Café and Après Ski Bar is located at the foot of the ski slope.
The café opens at 08h30 and serves great coffee, hot chocolate, and light morning refreshments (including great breakfast sandwiches, muffins and an assortment of pastries) until 11h30. Lunch is served until 16h00. Once the day progresses try adding some excitement to your hot chocolate by sampling one of our ‘Ski Bunnies’ or ‘Snowmakers’. These will be sure to give you a little extra warmth. Take in the views of the slopes from the Gondola deck while enjoying the delicious food. The perfect spot to watch your friends, partners or kids while they are busy with their lessons. If the weather outside is a bit brisk, you can always enjoy the warmth of the fire in the Gondola Cafe, or even take each other on in a friendly game of Foosball.
At night, the café environment transforms to bring a genuine European Après Ski experience to the roof of Africa, with games, DJs, and live bands to entertain you as the sun sets over the top of the slope. Be sure to ask about our upside downers and the Guest Entertainment team can let you know when this is available. Whether you want to just give it a go, or attempt to break the record, drinking shots while hanging upside down from a snowboard attached to the roof is sure to be a unique experience. Bring along your dancing shoes and prepare to be entertained by our in-house DJ. At night, the Gondola Cafe is also where you will witness our resort entertainment, including the infamous ‘ski burning’ show put on by our instructors.
Whether you want a warm spot to relax during the day, or a place to be entertained in the evening, Gondola Cafe is the place to be.
THE COOLER BOX
The Cooler box is an express food and drinks kiosk on the main deck of the Gondola Café. You can find a selection of drinks, as well as light snacks like crisps, chocolates and a South African favourite, boerie rolls. If you need a quick refuel between skiing or snowboarding, Cooler box is great to grab something on-the-go.
The Cooler Box hosts the afternoon Après Ski festivities daily from 15h00.
