With more than 80 restaurants and bars, and a parade of international visitors and influences, the Aspen/Snowmass area is a gourmet diner's playground. From bistros and cafés to award-winning farm-to-table dining, event well-traveled palates will make delightful high-altitude culinary discoveries in Aspen and Snowmass. In the winter, travel by sleigh, snowcat or skis to reach some spectacular dining destinations. During warm weather months, dine al fresco and enjoy mountain vistas at dozens of outdoor patios. Whether searching for Italian, Japanese, Mediterranean or gourmet vegetarian, Aspen/Snowmass delivers in style.
Eight K, the Viceroy Snowmass signature restaurant, is the happening place to dine in Aspen/Snowmass. Enjoy the gastro pub atmosphere at Nest, the Kelly-Wearstler designed café. We also recommend a visit to our off-site, slope-side, French inspired restaurant Ricard in the heart of Base Village. Our other favorites in Snowmass are The Artisan and Sage in the Snowmass Club.
