27010 Highway 16 West,
Jasper East/Hinton

Located in Overlander Mountain Lodge, just outside the East Gates of Jasper National Park, sweeping mountain views and elevated, farm to table dining, is what people come to experience at Stone Peak Restaurant.

With organic produce from the Robson Valley, and select meats from Alberta producers exploring natural flavours that re-introduce the senses to everything they’ve been missing.

Owned by the Griffiths family for 27 years, Overlander and Stone Peak are both the best kept, and least kept, secret of the Rockies. Word of mouth, rather than extensive advertising, brings couples and families to the lodge, cabins and chalets that surround the restaurant. And once here, guests seldom leave without making plans to come back.

The reason is that nothing here is more important than guest experience. And from the rooms, to the view, to the food served in the dining room, it’s a philosophy that’s built around the people who come here to experience this one of a kind, home away from home.

Dean HossackAfter more than 20 years in British Columbia, and four tours in Europe with Culinary Team B.C., former Whistler Chef Dean Hossack now makes his home at the Overlander Mountain Lodge on the edge of Jasper National Park.

For Dean, the move to Alberta returned him to his cooking roots. Having graduated from SAIT in the mid-90s, the chef lately completed the Certified Chef de Cuisine program—a long-held goal and, until recently, Canada’s highest culinary accreditation— through NAIT.

With experience ranging from resorts, hotels and member clubs in the Okanagan, to Whistler Mountain and the 4 Diamond Nita Lake Lodge in Whistler’s Creekside, Dean brings a farm-to-table approach to his dishes.
