An on-mountain family tradition for 34 yearsGwyn's High Alpine has consistently been voted North America's best on-mountain restaurant by Ski, Skiing, and Powder Magazine. Vanity Fair writes that Gwyn's is not to be missed when you visit Aspen and Snowmass. For the past 34 years, visitors and locals alike have returned to experience the creative cuisine, with menu items from the Alps to the Pacific Rim. Kick back on the deck with an Angus burger, enjoy a steaming bowl of Brunswick chicken stew in our cafe, or welcome the opportunity to take off your boots, slip on some slippers, and tempt your palate with a three-course meal at Gwyn's. No meal is complete without a bottle of wine from Gwyn and George's wine cellar, which boasts an impressive collection accumulated over the past three decades. No matter which of our many options you choose, we promise exceptional food and service at our family restaurant.The dining room opens at 9 a.m. for breakfast. Lunch seating begins at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m. Get George's "No Bull" Snow Report and daily specials every morning at 7:30 a.m. on Facebook.

The only real issue is that you're probably not going to shred after eating here, because the temptation to overeat is real. This can be solved by eating a late lunch, after your shredding is complete. Food's good (I had risotto and the moppet had the seemingly-de-rigeur truffle fries), very nice wine list that is not too steep, friendly service... More

When we are skiing Snowmass, Gwyn's is the place we go for lunch most often. There is a good selection of salads, soups, and grill items (not to mention desserts - the rice krispy treats are always fresh!). Their rice bowls are very good too. There is a large deck for eating outdoors, though getting a table on a sunny... More

We've skied this mountain for over 20 years and eating lunch at Gwyn's was a ritual. This year, we decided was our last. The food was mediocre, the choices limited, the grill extremely slow and the menu tired. It took over 20 minutes to prepare a Chicken George (grilled chicken with cheese and pineapple) and a hamburger the other day.... More

We were fortunate enough to make it here for breakfast once during our trip. The issue here is that although the ownership says you can get there by foot, everyone else in the community including the staff say you can only ski to it and that you should be at least an intermediate skier. If you can make it....do! So... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch today while skiing Snowmass. We thought the menu was very good - offering lots of healthy choices (and some decadent things, too)! But with the first bite of the kale salad, my husband declared it the best ever. I am always on the look out for great salads and dressings and this one... More

We have been eating here for over 30 years the only Snowmass Mountain Restaurant independently owned with one of the owners always on site. The staff is pleasent and helpful. The food offerings are wide from the basics to more elaborate selections available in the table service area called Gwyns. On busy days the main food line splits into two... More

We normally have a special breakfast at Gwen's when visiting Snowmass, but this time we had lunch. The Risotto was spectacular after a crisp salad with house dressing. Choice of dessert was difficult but chocolate pie was wonderful. Service as always was perfect. It is such a treat to sit down with linen table cloths, an intimate atmosphere, and look... More

An example of stereotypical ski slope food; $16.50 for a cheeseburger, clementine, and crowded. The big burger was visually appealing, but had little taste, the clementine had more flavor by far. The large digital/video menus were incomplete and changed before you could figure them out. Some items were not listed. Many items appeared to have price$ you will only discover... More
