Food was amazing, the views unique up the mountain and also so much fun inside! It goes crazy after lunch, probably the most fun you can have in Aspen!

We booked a dinner in advance - Inclusive price included the snowcat ride up and multi course gourmet meal. Views from the top of Alpine HIghlands are spectacular. Service was very attentive and the setting was unique - Made for a very special and memorable evening.

Go for the view (top of Cloud 9 lift), go back for the food. Have never had a bad dish here. The papardelle is fantastic. Once in awhile, the weather shuts down the patio - eating indoors isn't quite the experience...nothing beats sitting outside here on a clear day. The only thing missing is free sunglasses like they hand out... More

The whole concept of the place is phenomenal. It is important to know background and history of it though as that makes it extremely interesting! Generally it is just a very small place with good food and champagne! But actually when you get there and feel the atmosphere it makes you feel special! Quality of food is average but when... More

If you visit Aspen, this is a must do! Great food and marvellous service. Amazing music to keep you buzzing. But it's when they start spraying champagne all over the place, it takes off... Good vibes!!

People will gather there for lunch. It all ends at 4pm. It's the hottest spot! Make a reservation well in advance. Get champagne (it will be served over fresh shoveled snow!!). Prepare for the music to get louder and louder within minutes, until it's like a club. Everyone will share great and happy energy to be there, splashing champagne, singing... More

The Aspen trail map describes this place as "a quaint alpine bistro", which is simply not true. It is a NIGHTCLUB, that operates during the day, where they also serve overpriced food, where no food should be served. I saw a group of drunk apparent children, who appeared to be under 18 years old, drinking large amounts of alcohol, spraying... More

The last time I had lunch at Cloud 9 it was actually a pleasant experience. I am not sure if there is a new owner or what's going on but they should just skip the very expensive lunch ($47 pp) and just advertise it for what it is, a place filled with douche bags spraying champagne at each others. My... More

The only way to reach Cloud 9 is on skies . I'm not sure what to expect on a weekday , but on a Saturday , late lunch and Apres' is totally wild and crazy. First of all , one needs a reservation to sit for a meal . The place was so crowded with people outside and inside that... More
