I am continually disappointed by this restaurant. The theme and related decor is very cheesy and has absolutely nothing to do with a ski area. The menu is weak and the over-priced food is very bland. The service is spotty at best. It has an amazing out door deck facing the ski area which it fails miserably to use appropriately.... More

Came here in December 2011 for a week. This was were I came to take a break from the mountain. Good place to eat and have a few drinks to take the load of from hitting the sloes all day. And great view of the mountain.

We were really surprised that a restaurant at a ski resort would become our go-to lunch spot. Normally ski resort eateries are overpriced with horrible food. Butte 66 sandwiches are very good and, they renewed our interest in Tater Tots. They're not just for kids! The beer and liquor selections include just about anything you could want. And they pour...

Very good lunch! Great place to stop in at lunch while taking a break from skiing. Have a drink with your lunch and go back out and enjoy your day :-) Staff was very nice and they can get you in and out or you can chill for a while. I didn't feel rushed at all. Go try it.

What a great place to enjoy lunch and watch the slopes! Most relaxing place to sit in the sun and enjoy a drink as the kids are doing their last run of the day. Centrally located with good food.

Butte 66 is a second floor, slopeside restaurant of adequate food and good service. It might also be called Butt 66, as many of the male waiters need to pull up their pants. The sandwiches are all very good; especially the tuna melt and the pulled pork. I would skip the highly overprice malted milk shake at $5.95 for a... More

I like this place because of the location. A great spot for lunch in the middle of your day on the slopes. Food is good - nothing too exciting but the best option you have actually right at the mountain base. The bar is good. It's really nice to end the day with a bloody out on the deck watching... More

We came here for our lunch break after our first day of skiing. It's a little crowded and it took awhile before we had our orders. The food was excellent. We shared a plate of the pulled pork sandwich that came with a choice of coleslaw. Yum. Since the restaurant is facing towards the slope, it's a great place to... More

We were fortunate to be invited to a private event in this awesome restaurant where seating and large outside deck overlook the ski slopes, or bike slopes in the summer! What a great view and excellent food. We had a good time and would recommend it for anyone planning an event in CB.

Had a few beverages out on the deck while the day was ending. Nice place to watch the mountain while drinking a few cold adult beverages.
