About The Alphorn
We are a small Swiss restaurant located on highway 26 halfway between the town of Collingwood and the Blue Mountain Ski Resort and Intrawest Village.
Our specialty is wienerschnitzel, which was named the best in Canada by Ski Canada magazine. Also very popular are our cheese and beef fondue, trout, chicken, steaks, and our traditional Swiss appetizers such as raclette, buednerfleisch, and hearts of palm salad.
The Alphorn has been at this location since the early 1980s and has become a local landmark over the years, made especially famous by our unique birthday celebrations. People of all ages beg to visit the Alphorn every year for their birthdays and for many families this has become a ski season tradition.
Our atmosphere is that of a Swiss family restaurant with our wooden tables, stucco walls, and an unbelievable collection of memorabilia, featuring autographed bibs and skis from famous racers, currency from all over the world, and other oddities like the 5 foot long watches.
Our intimate copper bar carries an extensive wine list, as well as our “Beers of the World” passport, offering 40 different types, our draft selection, and our featured “Beer of the Week”. Most importantly, we always keep a full stock of Schnapps, especially Apple Schnapps, which has been made infamous by the Apple Liquor song.
