Awesome spot on the mountain with inside dining for beautiful fine dining & wine, and an outside slopeside Ice Bar for fun & elegant bistro eats. The Ice Bar itself is fun...covered in snow so you can plot your drink in the snow to keep it cold; fun events like ski-shots (a ski with 4 holes for shot glasses...you have... More

5 course meal, very well cooked & presented. A bit expensive at >$100 / person. The drinks were Very Reasonably priced. The "sleigh" ride up was so / so - a big box behind a Snow-Cat : maybe nice if not a skier & not afraid of heights.

To begin, you take a sleigh pulled by a snowcat to the restaurant. Uley's serves a five course meal that could compete with any fine dining restaurant. It has become a New Year tradition for us!

We stopped at Uley's Cabin for lunch while skiing and liked it so much that we planned the next day's ski schedule around lunch there - again. What a lovely surprise to find gourmet food on the mountain and to be able to ski-in to exceptional food and service. The soups are to die for. The entrees were fabulous -... More

But don't be late, it closes at 4. Sadly, it is no longer made of ice--just plastic w/ snow on the top. Next to the Twister lift which isn't often open, but you're there for going down right?

My wife and I are not skiers so our daughter and husband gave us an evening dinner at Uley's for helping out with the grandkids while they skied at Crested Butte. We were transported to Uley's Cabin at the tip of the Crested Butte slopes by a sleigh pulled by a SnoCat after the slopes had closed for the day.... More

Was skiiing along and suddenly a mirage appeared. A bar in middle of the woods. Moseyed up to the bar, struck up conversations with 3 couples while downing a fireball. Fun!

We stopped just before ending the second day of skiing. No food just a drink. Good selection and great ice bar. Great Vistas.
