Apres-Ski Spot in Summer

Avalanche Bar & Grill has casual food & vibe

P1030378The Avalanche Bar & Grill steps from the base of the slopes at Mt. Crested Butte is a ski-resort classic with casual food, casual waitrons, casual atmosphere and casual customers who keep the drinks and food coming when the lifts close. In summer, the fireplace is cold and there are more families. In winter, the fireplace is blazing and is surrounded by the thirsty young skiers who gather around it and fill barstools and tables too.

A line of TV screens above the Avalanche bar shows sports -- in this bike-crazy town, two of them showed the Tour de France.

We had just driven down from Boulder, so we ordered just a couple of items and couldn’t even finish the ample amount of food.

A mountain of nachos.
