We eat almost every lunch here while we're skiing, and at least two dinners during our week in Crested Butte. My husband tells everyone that the Avalanche serves the best fish and chips in the world. Everything else we've tried is good, too, expecialy the oriental chicken salad and the soups. The Avalanche is consistently good, not fancy, but a... More

Great food, great beer, great people. Service is busy all the time but they still get the job done and food is always right.

My husband and I just spent 5 nights in Crested Butte. We spent 4 of them (and 1 apres ski) at Avalanche. The reasons for our frequent visits included reliably good food, good services, inexpensive dining, and location. This place is great for people staying at Mt. Crested Butte who don't want to travel to down or dine at more... More

Very diverse menu, good service, cordial staff, good tasting food at fair prices. Seating feels a bit crowded at times but everything esle was great. They have TV's all over the restaurant...good for the sports nut like me.

We ate at all of the top 10 restaurants and got exactly what was promised. Then some of our group was felled by sickness and on the night before we left for home, we just dragged ourselves to Avalanche for dinner. What a pleasant surprise. They have a nightly special and for $29 we got a bottle of wine and... More

Great spot for lunch on the slopes....as casual as eating up on the mountain but you actually have a table and a waiter. The food was good and the prices even better. We ate there 2 times during our stay.

We were at Avalanche for our Christmas Eve's dinner this year. Despite of the crowds, we were promptly seated. However, it took a while before the waitress took our order and for the food to come. The menu is reasonably priced. It has a good selection of comfort foods. DH shared a plate of sirloin steak that came with mashed... More

Great atmosphere, attentive waitstaff, really good comfort food. And the prices are affordable- something I never find in a ski town. Our family of 6 ate a big meal for less than $60!
