PLEASE NOTE: Effective immediately all Aspen Snowmass restaurants have increased indoor capacity under the 5 Star Variance. Details

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 are now able to increase our indoor capacity and allow increased indoor dining, though truth be told, it’s deck season here at Aspen Snowmass. We still recommend preordering meals and taking advantage of expanded outdoor seating on decks, in open air tents and in public spaces for dining.

Best known for:
Asian cuisine options with a priceless view of Pyramid Peak
Don’t miss: The make-your-own Mongolian BBQ wok station

At the top of Buttermilk with panoramic views of the dramatic Pyramid Peak and the entire Maroon Creek Valley is Cliffhouse. Pop in to this laid-back restaurant for a midday break to recharge with great food, including the popular Mongolian grill — where you can choose protein and sauces, and let the chefs do their work. Also on the menu: our fresh juice bar, Thai tea and high-protein grab-and-go snacks like super-food grain salads and energy bars inspired by Tiehack uphillers (but great for skiers and riders, too).
