We had skied past Alpino Vino for several days before getting a chance to dine there. Wish we had gone in the first time, because we’d have probably gone back every day! This has to be 1 of the best on mountain dining experiences we...More

Not inexpensive, but a 'destination" restaurant for dinner in a destination ski area. It was a first class experience from the time the snow cat picked us up to take us to dine at 12,500 feet above sea level. The food, wine and service were...More

What a neat spot! A glass of champagne at 12,000 feet. What could possibly be better? Just be careful how much you drink. it’s solid blue run the whole way down!

The highest restaurant in North America at 12000 ft - heavenly indeed. We had one of the most memorable lunches ever here two years ago , so were somewhat apprehensive about trying to remake a magic moment. Well we need not have worried. Amidst the...More

I've occasionally stopped by for lunch when the skiing isn't great but the weather is. Never cheap, always enjoyable, with a truly superb wine selection, all at just shy of 12,000'. You'll forgo the view at night unless the moon is out, but taking a...More
