Alpino Vino (Winter Only)
Alpino Vino, the second-highest elevation restaurant in North America at 11,966 ft, is an exclusive and quaint European hutte offering leisurely lunches and evening dining experiences like no other! Ski in during the day or travel via custom built snowcoach at night to peruse a world class Italian American wine list and enjoy Italian Alpine gourmet comfort food. Alpino Vino offers fantastic views of the famed Wilson Range with an appropriately themed Alpine Italian lunch menu featuring handmade pastas, panini, and antipasti. Dinner service offers a 4-course, prix-fixe, Northern Italian menu with unheard of wine pairings from a team of Sommeliers who are at your service.
The expansive, multi-tiered, exterior deck; with its European teak furniture, sheepskin throws, and coveted daybeds, is truly a unique spot to celebrate the day over a bottle of wine in a comfortable, yet charmingly rustic outdoor setting. Inside, hand-hewn beams, rustic furniture, stone floors, and a wood burning fireplace provide a high alpine ambience reminiscent of restaurants and refugi found throughout the Dolomites of Northern Italy. Originally a private retreat designed by a famed local architect on an historic mining claim, Alpino Vino is the cornerstone of Telluride Ski Resort’s unique and award winning Culinary offerings.
Take Gold Hill Express (Lift 14) and turn left off the lift to ski down See Forever to the front door during the day. Make a reservation for the evening and ride Alpino Vino’s heated snow coach from the top of the Gondola to the front door! Call the concierge for more information.
