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!

Our family (three generations of simultaneous skiers) loves both the quick, delicious, casual cafeteria-style meal on the "High Alpine" side of the restaurant, AND the leisurely sit-down luxury experience on the "Gwyn's" side. Several members of the family want to eat here every skiing meal of the week if possible, and tend to ignore all the other slopeside possibilities (what,... More

What a delightful way to take a mid-day break. The food and service were excellent. Very European feel. The prices are reasonable for a higher end restaurant. LOVED the mushroom risotto. Only thing to watch out for: You'll be VERY relaxed after lunch and may want to just stick around instead of skiing.

We had lunch hear 1 day while skiing. It is important to note that there is the Gwyn's Restaurant and then also a fast food/cafeteria style line where everyone eats lunch midday. Gwyn's place is fine dining and sit down. I love that they have Crocs to wear so you can take off your ski boots and really relax. I... More

Recently at Aspen and so enjoyed the New Brunswick Chicken stew and hot Apple Crisp. The kitchen staff are practically terrorists about wanting to add more whipped cream to our delight. It's the only ski trip I came back from gaining weight. Next time a little more skiing and a little less Gwyns :)

What can I say! Gwyn's has been around for a long time. It's unique and not to be missed when you ski Snowmass. You are treated like royalty. The food is great!

We visited Gwyn's twice during a Christmas ski trip. Loved the crocs (other than having to put the ski boots back on), food & wine. Gwyn was also very friendly, stopping by tables to converse. This is a fun sit down experience.

This place has average food, but it fills you up and the view is 10/10! The staff and service are lovely and the food OK... totally recommend it for a hot chocy stop, if nothing else, but a great place to take a break from the slopes.
