Snowshoed in for a memorable lunch

Sometimes it's not just the food that makes a restaurant memorable. Our special lunch was during a 4 hour snowshoe trip to Ashcroft Ghost Town. Two of us had snowshoed; two of us had not. It was a beautiful day and the scenery to the Pine Creek Cookhouse spectacular. We earned the right to eat... read more

This was my third visit to Pine Creek Cookhouse. The first visit was over 20 years ago so I have vague memories of that experience. Second time was just a few months ago when we went to a wedding here. This weekend, we took our kids and another family here for dinner as we thought this would be a fun... More

Every part of the experience from start to finish was amazing! The staff at the starting cabin is super friendly and helpful getting you set up with top notch gear (they have boots in case you didn't pack them). Snowshoeing through a wooded but well marked path is breathtaking. Recommend the night experience so you can see the sunset colors... More

Visited the Pine Creek Cookhouse today and enjoyed a delicious trout meal. The 2 km walk to the venue along a snow covered road was a good workout and made ordering a main and dessert relatively guilt free! Our table was well looked after by an attentive young man, and my only bit of feedback I might offer is that... More

There is nothing prettier and more fun than cross country skiing to Pine Creek Cookhouse under a full moon --- or anytime of day or night for that matter. . The ski in is not hard and the ski out, with or without a glass of wine is pure exhilaration. For those who want the view without the effort, jump... More

I was fortunate enough to spent the evening at the Pine Creek Cookhouse with family over the holidays. It is one of the last and best purely Aspen experiences. If you vacation in Aspen it would be on the top of my list of things to do. The entire night is perfect. Either cross country ski or sleigh ride to... More

On Jan 2, 2015, our group of 8 drove from Aspen to Ashcroft on a road with breathtaking views of snow covered mountains. After leaving our cars at Ashcroft, we had several choices to reach the log cabin restaurant located further up the mountain...the 6 younger ones chose to cross country ski in and us two "matured adults" chose to...

I went with my daughter and two friends. The sleigh ride up was fun but it left us at the restaurant without notice so we were taken back down the hill by a cook in a snow filled polaris... not fun. Our server was a sweet young lady but I had to get up 4 times to get hot water... More

This was such a cool experience. We were a group of 4 that snow shoed / cross country skied to the cookhouse for dinner. It is really a little bit of a work out getting there and back, but really fun and worth the trouble. Dinner was very nice and the food was pretty good. The salad and elk were... More
