Alpino Vino

Splurge-Worthy On-Mountain Spot near the top of Gold Hill

Take a break from skiing to take a coveted outdoor seat at this "splurge-worthy" on-mountain restaurant, which at 11,966 feet, is also the highest fine-dining restaurant in North America. There is something about this quaint, charming, chalet restaurant near the top of the See Forever ski run that makes you feel like you are living in the lap of luxury. It could be the incredibly intimate atmosphere, the beautiful plates of charcuterie and cheese exiting the kitchen or the effervescent glasses of prosecco seemingly being drunk by all the patrons. This is a place to linger on a bluebird day after getting in your early turns. If the thrill of skiing is not your thing, you can still experience Alpino Vino at night. Call the Telluride Ski Resort at 970-728-7560 to make dinner reservations and travel by enclosed snow coach to the restaurant. Be sure to make reservations in advance as this cozy space can only accommodate 28 people! 

On-Mountain Dining. Only open during the Ski Season.

Local Note – The grilled cheese and tomato soup are the perfect ski break snack!
