I was there enjoying at URLL nights (it's a special Friday in which you can go tabbing and others activities), the food was excellent but I spent a lot of money. Maybe because you are in the middle of the mountain. Don't drink wine haha.

Such a great ski deck for apres or cocktails during your ski day. Located at the top of the Elk Camp Gondola this place is a must stop for a beer while skiing at Snowmass.

The Cafe has so many yummy food and drink choices - full bar, several food stations from bakery, soups and stew to pannini and salad options. Very convenient location at the top of the gondola - large, but at peak times can be very busy, sometimes hard to find a seat, stop before 11:30 am or after 1:30pm to avoid... More

We had a quick bite to eat here for lunch. It was extremely busy, but we were able to get a small table in the bar area. We had gone in to have a drink only, but the food looked & smelled so good we decided to eat too. Good food, pleasant staff.

Must access by ski lifts. SELF SERVICE BUFFET STYLE. SUPER salad bar. Also good pizza, baked chicken, pork loin, veggies, paninis, soups, stews. Relatively expensive, but all is quality food. We ate lunch there often. My wife and I paid $10 apiece to ride the gondola up on Friday night. My season pass did not work for the gondola. They... More

Adjacent to some of the best skiing at Snowmass this on mountain lodge is not substitute for the defunct Café Suzanne but as mountain lodges go, it a good one. Beautiful sun deck, first floor rest rooms, ample food selections, and a full bar.

Deck is in a sun trap, lovely spot, new and v well managed by a tall polite american who worked v hard. v busy, but good value and excellent food. Could always find a seat. Long tables encourage conversation with other skiers which was fun.

Good food. VERY expensive. Try to go early or late as it gets extremely crowded and then hard to find seats. New building as of a few years ago - so nice and clean.

What a beautiful building! Inside and out, the design is the perfect modern, on-mountain ski cafeteria. Even the food is good – over the course of two days here, I tried the hearty and soul-warming chili bowl, the chicken soup bowl with its generous serving of poultry, hot broth and wintery kale, some hot chocolate, and the colorful monster cookie....
