Telluride Ski Resort On-Mountain Dining Guide
Spending the day skiing at the Telluride Ski Resort will work up your appetite... but you don't even need to leave the mountain to get some of the best grub around. This is a breakdown of the best grab-and-go spots, fine dining and restaurants with views - all located on the Telluride Ski Resort.
Dine in style 10,551 feet above sea level! Located at the San Sophia stop at the top of the Gondola, Allred's is known for its exceptional wine list and a local and regional prix fixe menu. Reservations are encouraged, but the bar is first-come, first-served. Dinner is served year-round from 5-9 p.m. (with the exception of the off-seasons), but apres ski is available from 3-5 p.m. during the winter.
Aptly named for "a person who enjoys a sociable and luxurious lifestyle", Bon Vivant offers views of Palmyra and the Wilson Range at the top of Lift 5. This outdoor venue has a massive umbrella for sun protection, space heaters, lounge chairs, and unbeatable views. Bon Vivant is first-come, first-served, so we recommend going early and getting on the day's list. Lunch is served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (weather permitting) and there is a to-go window open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There is often music on the weekends, so bring your dancing shoes!
Alpino Vino, one of the highest elevation restaurants in North America at 11,966 feet, is a quaint European chalet located off of See Forever (accessible from Lift 14). Sit outside and soak in the views or sit by the fireplace inside and enjoy the hand-hewn beams, stone floors and Northern Italy vibes. No matter where you sit, you'll enjoy the delicious Alpine Italian lunch menu.
Alpino Vino does not take reservations, so we recommend stopping by early in the day to request a table. For dinner, Alpino Vino also offers a prix fixe Northern Italian menu accessible via a snow coach. Reservations can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
High Camp Warming Hut
Need a quick bite while exploring some of the higher terrain at the Telluride Ski Resort? Located at the top of Prospect Bowl lift (12), High Camp serves hot and cold drinks, soups and snacks. It's a great spot to stop and grab a bite before hitting up Quail Ridge and Palmyra Peak hike-to Terrain.
Big Billie's is a casual, family friendly spot at the base of Lift #10 and #1. Catch your favorite team on one of the TVs, play darts, or grab a quick bite. The food is casual American, and includes burgers, hot dogs, turkey legs, soup, chili, beer and drinks.
Locally known as "the beach", Gorrono Ranch is the must-stop spot on the mountain. Grab a margarita or cold beer and sit back and relax in the adirondack chairs that face the Wilson range. Located under Lift 4 with easy access from Misty Maiden, Butterfly and Village Bypass, you can also grab burgers, chili, bbq and other grub all winter long.
