One of the great treats of a Colorado ski trip is enjoying the fabulous food served up in resort restaurants. Between the appetite you’ve built up on the slopes and the amazing attention to detail by the resort dining menus, it’s no wonder that eating ranks second only to skiing on a group ski trip. The Daily Meal has released their Top Ten Ski Resorts for Food in North America, and it’s no surprise that Colorado resorts represented well. Several of the spots they mentioned look fantastic and have made our short list of places to eat when you ski.
The Metropolitan in Beaver Creek looks amazing. Because wine and tapas. What else is there to say? Oh, actually there is one more thing to say – their breakfast burritos look like the perfect, delicious fuel for a day on the slopes.
I also like the looks of The 10th Restaurant at Vail. Because when you combine Pan Seared Cilantro Marinated Halibut, Lobster Risotto, Sautéed Swiss Chard, Sunflower Seeds, Ginger Scallion Sauce with views like this, you win. At 13,000 feet, this ski-in, ski-out is available to skiers who want fine-dining for lunch but don’t want to interrupt your ski day by leaving the slopes.
What’s your favorite place to eat on your ski trips?
