(KUTV) It was 44 years in the making for the opening of Snowbird's new Summit restaurant today, 11,000 feet above sea level.

Built at the top of the tram, the 23,000 square foot building offers stunning views of the Salt Lake Valley.

The building took construction crews two summers to build and decades longer to plan.

Officials say it was a challenge getting building materials to the site without damaging the environment, but was definitely worth the wait.
