Aspen Highlands has long been a favorite mountain among locals, and its two restaurants reflect the laid-back atmosphere of the valley. Merry-Go-Round offers several hearty-yet-healthy options at its grab-and-go counters. Further up the mountain, Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro offers a slice of Switzerland in the Rocky Mountains, with fondue and raclette, views of the Maroon Bells, and a pop-the-bubbly après ski scene unmatched in North America.

All Aspen Skiing Company restaurants, both on and off the mountains have received the 5-Star Variance due to our meticulous attention to health and safety protocols. We continue to operate with an indoor capacity of 50%, in addition to our decks and outdoor seating areas. We still recommend preordering meals and taking advantage of expanded outdoor seating on decks, in open air tents and in public spaces for dining. Tables are limited to two household use only and no group larger than 10 people. Use online ordering and Qless technology available on the Aspen Snowmass App to minimize wait times and have the best experience. Operational changes may occur before or during your visit based on restrictions as mandated by county health agencies. Our priority is your safety and we’ll strive to keep timely updates on changes here.
