What a pleasant surprise to have lunch at a ski area "cafeteria" that was so upscale and offered great choices. I had a plate of tiny portions of different items from the salad bar, including a pico de gaillo (sp?), a lentil salad, a quinoa salad, white bean salad, tuna salad. There were many other things at the salad bar, including different greens (kale was one, and I didn't see the others because I didn't want the greens), other pasta salads, onions, and some of the regular items you see at most salad bars. I also had a cup of tomato bisque that was obviously made by a trained chef. DELICIOUS!
My husband had a kid's grilled cheese and some chips that looked to be homemade.
The price was high for lunch, $40 for two of us, but it was a treat for us to be on that mountain on such a beautiful day and enjoy a good meal that was also healthful.

This is a great restaurant, ate there the 3 days we skied Snowmass. It's kept nice and clean, the food is great and the staff are helpful. Good seating area outside if it's a nice sunny day.

The food was excellent and prices were the most reasonable (though still mountain resort high). Excellent views. Don't try to get here from Turkey Trot, unless you want to walk up. To ski in you'll have to come from above the lodge.

On a blower powder day when you don't want to stop and waist time eating. Hit this place and be in and out in under 30 mins. I wish they had more nights available for dining only Friday nights can you take a gondola ride up and eat there .

This place was our base camp. We ate here almost everyday. We tried other places but came right back. It's modern and the food is really great. It has very good pizza, and sandwiches and a very big salad bar.
