Portland MagazineEat, Ski, Love – The Matterhorn Ski Bar

“Sunday River’s cozy and hopping ski pub has a thing for Neapolitan pizza.  Although pizza is literally front and center, the menu includes sushi, steak, risotto, penne bolognese, buffalo wings, bison, and particularly tasty baby back ribs. It’s a kid-friendly place, with engraved mugs filled with Geary’s draught root beer and an exceptionally popular arcade.”

“To be sure that you never confuse the Matterhorn with a common sports bar, co-owner Roger Beaudoin and Patrice Miller have created a veritable shrine to skiing.  The bar is constructed of skis, ski memorabilia covers the walls and ceiling (Ski Mount Tom!), and the 64-inch flatscreen HD television play ski-porn from opening to last call.  Not that you should hang out at a bar from opening to last call. Right?  Right?!?”

Located at the base of the mountain and offering great views of Sunday River's trails, the Matterhorn's, two floors contain wall-to-wall memorabilia, from skis to mountaineering equipment (nobody has won the contest to name how many skis are on display)  Owner Roger Beaudoin, a skier and mountaineer who climbed the Matterhorn in 1998 and plans to do it again this summer, says this visual history of skiing makes the Matterhorn unique.  "Our customers donate things to us"  he says "we've got hundreds of pairs of skis from 1930's hickories to 70's day glow gear."  Food and drinks also make the Matterhorn unique.  It's trademark dish is authentic brick-oven pizza, based on an original italian recipe that Beaudoin got in Naples, Italy.  Patrons can try one of the "Glacier Bowls"  a 60 oz. mixture of light and dark rums with fruit juice or choose one of the fine single malt scotches available.
