What you see is what you get

No frills apre ski bar serving all the things you need after hard day on the mountain. Fun staff and no nonsense menu makes it easy option if you dont feel like going into town. Ask for Dave local ski instructor to get some local knowledge but buy him a beer for his trouble

We couldn't wait to see our friends at Avalanche again. The wait staff is so great, they seem to love the place too. Food is great and not pricey.

Seems like every restaurant we tried in the base area of Crested Butte was pricier than Vail yet not all that good. The Avalanche Bar was no exception. We got burgers and they were very average to below average. At $15 bucks each its not all that great. That said, Im not sure where you can go in the base... More

We skied a full day and wanted burgers and beer. Luckily, the Avalanche Bar and Grill was just a short walk from where we were staying at the Grand Lodge. They sat us right away, we had beers in front of us quickly and our order on the way. We all ordered burgers and they were excellent. They came fast,... More

This is a great place to eat after a long day on the slopes. It is fast, convenient, and lots of variety of food.

This place will really surprise you. Sure it's a relaxed little place, not pretentious, not outwardly indicating how good their food is. Really it's GOOD!!!! We've enjoyed a dozen or so meals at Avalanche and they've all been good. However, (message to the Avalanche), the best meal I ever had at Avalanche was their breakfast (which they no longer serve).... More

The food was good. We had fish and chips, which was excellent. They didn't want to put the tables together for 10 of us until everyone was there. Guess I understand that but it was an inconvenience. Service was good, though.

Good value, eclectic menu and fun environment. Daily specials are good and well-priced. Best all round for dining on the mountain in the evening.

This place is located right at the lift base area. I stopped in after skiing for a beer and a snack. I was really happy that they had Great Divide Yeti on tap, it's one of my all time favorites. I had the wings, which were very meaty, cooked perfectly and well sauced. The place was pleasantly busy. I'd return... More

The restaurant was very crowded and had a 30 minute waiting time. The clam chowder was very thick and not very good.
