Description: An on-mountain family tradition for 34 yearsGwyn's High Alpine has consistently been voted North America's best on-mountain restaurant by Ski, Skiing, and Powder Magazine. Vanity Fair writes that Gwyn's is not to be missed when you visit Aspen and Snowmass. For the past 34 years, visitors and locals alike have returned to experience the creative cuisine, with menu items from the Alps to the Pacific Rim. Kick back on the deck with an Angus burger, enjoy a steaming bowl of Brunswick chicken stew in our cafe, or welcome the opportunity to take off your boots, slip on some slippers, and tempt your palate with a three-course meal at Gwyn's. No meal is complete without a bottle of wine from Gwyn and George's wine cellar, which boasts an impressive collection accumulated over the past three decades. No matter which of our many options you choose, we promise exceptional food and service at our family restaurant.The dining room opens at 9 a.m. for breakfast. Lunch seating begins at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m. Get George's "No Bull" Snow Report and daily specials every morning at 7:30 a.m. on Facebook.

Great food, patio, music! Great place to stop on a sunny beautiful day for lunch. As with all on mountain dining it's expensive-$60 for lunch for 3, but you can't beat the view.

“a great ski dining experience”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Wonderful sit down dining on the ski mountain. Fine food, fine wine. But if you want to eat fast, the cafeteria is also great.

“Gwyn's is the best food on the mountain”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

It is wonderful to sit down in the lively restaurant after taking off your ski boots and putting on the Crocs that have been provided for you The food is nothing short of spectacular. We have been there multiple times and have never been disappointed by the ambiance, the service or the central thing, the food. You may think you don't want to sit down in a restaurant while skiing, but this is a highlight of our annual trip to snowmass. I can guarantee that you will never be disappointed by anything you eat on the menu.

“Better than average”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

The food at Gwyn's is definitely better than the food you generally find at mountain huts. We particularly like the soups and the coconut rice bowls.

“Worth the trip!”
Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

We are regulars, and have been sold on Gwynn's for years. It's our favorite spot on the mountain, with ample charm. We'll lunch here most days while skiing over Christmas. Family owned & run. A quick lunch (cafeteria style), but done very nicely. The prices are high, but no more than others places in the area. We find Gwynn's a delightful experience.
