Wow. What a view of the Maroon Bells! Book a table for the 2 pm lunch and request the main dining room for the full experience. Great music and fun times but pricey and entrees are average. Stick with the fondue and Raclette as appetizer portions. That is good and enough food. Appetizer portions are not on the menu but... More

Treated ourselves after a hard morning on the slopes. Very friendly staff, excellent food for an alpine restaurant. Fun and relaxed atmosphere.

This chalet is a reservations required spot. It is packed and as lunch ends and the music turns up, it is rocking. On top of the fun, especially in the middle of a snow storm, the tomato soup (vege broth based and chunks of tomato) was probably the BEST I've ever had. The apple strudel dessert was excellent. As a... More

We booked a table for 11 people & were accommodated well. Great menu & various specials. Friendly wait staff, both prompt & polite. Expensive, but definitely a must do thing

The staff was stellar! Food was to die for and the views are memorable. These guys bend over backwards for you. Why three stars? This isn't a Swiss mountain chalet. It's about 40% there to being a European Alp chalet. It's missing the the real atmosphere of the Alps. Sorry to say. I've been to the Swiss, and French Alps... More

I've taken my family here yearly and each year brings a new wrinkle. If you have a hankering for a cold ride under tarps being pulled by a snow cat to a verrry expensive semi average attempt at haute cuisine $150 pp plus beverages this place is for you. If you sit with your back to the cab going up... More

A very fun restaurant, high up on the mountain. Sooo expensive. Food was good. I wouldn't say it's near worth what you pay to be there. But, that being said, you should try it, just for the Aspen mountain experience.

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.
