We ventured in during Happy Hour after skiing. What a great place! Interesting from the front door to the restaurant/bar in back! The restaurant/bar has a casual, laid back atmosphere with a mountain view and a view into the "On Air" DJ booth. The staff...More

The Solar Center is a great, clean, family friendly place to eat! It not only is a bar with great food, it also has live music on the weekends AND is a radio station. Pretty cool eclectic place!

Wednesday night. Here for friend birthday (the 35th time he celebrated 39). Nominally two-step, but only the birthday boy is two-stepping. Just about everything on the dance floor including one young couple tango. Quite well, too. Music as both good beat and good tunes.
