As far as I know, this is the only privately owned restaurant and bar on any of the four ski resorts in the Aspen area and boy does it show. Owner operated, the owners are always there, and their hospitality and attention to detail really shows! Fantastic food, salads, meals and even a fine dining area! The bar is amazing,... More

Gwyn's sit down restaurant in her High Alpine lodge serves incredible food. I have eaten there many times. Unfortunately the prices have risen, and I don't go there any more.It is definitely woth a visit, if you haven't tried it. Her soups are the ebst I have ever tasted.

On a busy day on the hill you want to be able to get a seat and this property offers that. It is a pretty typical cafeteria style restaurant that offers excellent food, good service and a fast turn around.

Always visited at least once a season in the winter while skiing, the comfy warm atmosphere where you are served scrumptious lunches. Haven't eaten breakfast - but heard it is really good there -- We have been eating lunch here for the past 20 plus winter seasons and the food is always good. Try and make a reservation. Beats standing... More

Cafeteria style, excellent food, lots of choices, never disappointed-- very expensive however. But everything during ski season is expensive. One can also sit down, and be served in Gwen's. They have a small side restaurant that also has excellent food and great service.

Gwynn's High Alpine restaurant is technically two restaurants, a upscale sit-down with waiter service, and a more conventional on mountain cafeteria style restaurant. The later is more economic than the upscale restaurant, with a different menu. The food at the sit-down restaurant is easily the best on the mountain, though devoting the time it takes to a rather elaborate meal... More

We made the mistake of going to Gwyn's on our second day of skiing. We missed a day! If given the opportunity, we would have breakfast and lunch each day we were there. Service is fantastic, food is perfect, wine list is lovely ... and the crocs vs. ski boots option is the proverbial "icing".

This restaurant needs to be cleaned from top to bottom. The smell is horrible, and the restrooms are inconvenient. Way to expensive for the fare that it served.

Gwyn's is a wonderful treat. We visit snowmass a couple of weeks each winter and never miss a meal at Gwyn's High Alpine for lunch. The daily specials never disappoint, lunch can last as long or short as you desire, and the wait staff is super friendly.

Brought back memories of dining in Austrian, Swiss or Spanish ski resorts. Great family meal. Definitely more expensive than most ... but the food and ambiance also are so much better. The lamb chops - signature dish - were simply delectable! I will return just to eat them again. Yummmmmmy! Kids had a great meal, as well!
