Great atmosphere, great food! I had cornish game hen special. Sauce was to die for. Husband had blackened fish and loved it. All wait staff was prompt and friendly.

This was a date weekend on the recommendation from a couple who does it every Valentine’s Day. We had such fun and well worth experience. We opted for cross country skis, although for beginners the constant uphill track there and downhill back was challenging. I...More

Stumbled upon this great mountain for snowshoeing. Prices were reasonable, staff were friendly. Great hot chocolate and views from the Nordic center.

Great dining after an invigorating snowshoe trek from the base at Ski Cooper to the yurt where the meal is served. After all that exercise, the food is basically calorie-free!

We snowshoed about a mile through the snowy forest to this great dining spot for lunch. All four of us had the special squash soup and salad. Highly recommend a visit. You can cross country ski or just hike into the restaurant.

The food was very good. Very large portions. Bring your appetite. I loved all the attention to detail from the old historic original building. It has a lot of character and personality that is true to form for the Town of Leadville.

This is more than just great food -- it's an experience. First of all, you NEED reservations, so get on that. You start at the Nordic Center next to Ski Cooper in Leadville, and you will also need to purchase a trail pass. That was...More
