Some people say it’s the weather, or a vacation or some date on a calendar, but summertime for me is holding a chocolate-dipped soft-serve ice cream cone. There are never enough napkins for those. It’s a race between your face and triple digit temperatures
Frosty Chalet serves up those sweet, chilly treats in Lone Pine at the north end of town, across the street from Carl’s Jr. Speaking of which, Frosty Chalet serves an unforgettable cheeseburger, life-changing milkshakes and seasoned crinkle fries, BBQ ham or beef sandwiches, floats, ice cream sodas, sundaes, splits, and corn dogs.
It’s a cash only place, no website and Facebook is updated when it opens every year. Like most things, the best way to check it out is to open the door and walk in. There’s a dog friendly grassy area and picnic tables in the back.
Open 11 a.m.-8 p.m., closed Tuesdays. The chalet closes in October or before and is usually open for the Opening Day of fishing season, the last weekend in April.
