Best known for: Classic fondue, raclette and apple strudel
Don’t miss: Popping a bottle of Champagne on the terrace in the afternoon
This cozy, European-style cabin with a backdrop of the iconic Maroon Bells is a highlight of any Aspen Snowmass vacation. Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro is a legendary for a reason: channeling authentic European Alpine culture in a warm, welcoming environment, it also happens to have the most boisterous après ski scene on any mountain in North America. During the 2015-16 season, the iconic restaurant was completely remodeled.
Lunch service feels like a slice of Switzerland in the Rocky Mountains with layered helpings of fondue and raclette as well as steak tartare, caviar and delectable daily specials. The wine list includes an ever-changing array of international varieties and fine Champagne. For dessert: strudel, anyone?
As everyone’s attention shifts from lunch to après ski, things really kick into high gear. On sunny days, the south-facing deck at Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro regularly plays host to ski-boot dance parties that just happen, as flutes of Champagne, glasses of fine wine and a bevy of cocktails create a jovial atmosphere.
