We enjoyed a delicious lunch complete with superb service and an unmatched view at Alpino Vino in March. It was fun to learn that we were dining in the restaurant at the highest (altitude) in the US. We rode up Gold Hill Express (#14) to over 12,500 feet and skied "See Forever" run down a bit to reach Alpino Vino at 12,000 feet. Quite exciting to actually see La Sal Mountains in Utah in the distance from that majestic perch. My husband jokingly asked our waitress how she got to work. She grinned and said, " most people drive or walk to work." "I get to ski to work." Since it was close to zero degrees at that time, she added that she changed from her ski clothes to her Bavarian costume after she reached the restaurant! Yes, it was an expensive lunch, but well worth it! Will go again when we go back to Telluride!!
