Perched at the gondola stop 10,551 feet up, between Mountain Village and Telluride, Allred’s capitalizes on its position with enormous windows that frame the snow-capped mountains and rustic stone walls; a timbered ceiling adds to the alpine atmosphere. Creative American dishes include elk short loin and four cuts of Colorado steaks. It is also perfect for sunset cocktails on your way down to Telluride or for stargazing over coffee on your way back up. The 30-person private dining room is ideal for celebrations.
This Alpine-inspired chalet opened in 2009 at an elevation of more than 11,000 feet, with gorgeous views of the Wilson Range.
Raves an Indagare member: “Alpino Vino is at the top of one of the runs (you have to ski to get there) and serves a fabulous selection of wines, along with charcuterie and chesses. It had a relaxed, European feel, complete with heat lamps on the outdoor patio, so we loved it there.”
