We had the avalanche pizza (pepperoni, roasted garlic, caramelized onions, mushrooms and canadian bacon) and it was good. After a long day of exploring, it was an easy decision. Kids Quesdilla was huge and it was good meal!

I liked it so much, I went back a 2nd time. I had a fajita salad the first time; the guacamole was not pretty, and when I mentioned it, I was provided a half an avocado. The 2nd time, I had a grilled chicken sandwich. It was huge and delicious. The place is not at all overpriced, I would have... More

Great family-type food. Pizzas, sandwiches, salads. My son ate a hamburger every time we stopped in with very consistent tastes. The fajita salad was great.

Our group ate dinner there, and everyone's food was really good. It was super busy but still got excellent service. They have specials every night but we didn't see that until after we had ordered. Our group ordered burgers, BBQ ribs, chicken sandwiches, and drinks- all were great. Definitely going back!

For years the Avalanche has been a staple of our diet... During ski season, my family has relied on starting a great day with a fantastic breakfast at the Avalanche.

The cocktails are not on the Happy Hour menu but they are well worth $7. The food is mediocre at best and the service is hit and miss depending on who you get.

A great variety of well prepared food in portions to fully satisfy the skier's hunger. Daily specials are a good deal as well.

There is a reason it is a favorite with locals.....it is truly great food, great location. Good selection from salads to pizza by the slice after skiing to hot sandwiches, etc. Reasonably priced.
