1. The Overlook

The Overlook Restaurant sits at 11,274 on the top of Peak 9 at Breckenridge Ski Resort. This on-mountain restaurant features Asian-inspired foods that will be sure to warm you up and fuel you for the day. The Overlook has great options for vegetarians with menu items like Rocky Mountain Ramen and Overlook Thai Green Curry. There is an option to add braised chicken or pulled pork to both dishes. If you are wanting more traditional, American food, you will also find a burger, chicken sandwich, and crispy chicken tenders on the menu … yum! The Overlook is the highest restaurant at Breckenridge Ski Resort and has great views from the deck. You can reach the restaurant from the Beaver Run SuperChair or the Mercury SuperChair.

2. Pioneer Crossing

You will find Pioneer Crossing at the top of Peak 7 right off the Independence SuperChair at Breckenridge Ski Resort. Pioneer Crossing is great because they offer breakfast from 9:00 am to 10:30 am. The breakfast menu features a breakfast quesadilla, huevos rancheros, and an array of sweet and savory pastries. The old west inspired lunch menu has a large variety of sandwiches to choose from. Our favorites are the Cowboy Chile Relleno Burger and the Pioneer Mountain Veggie Burger. The best way to elevate your meal is to upgrade your plain fries to the Adobe Fries which are topped with cotija cheese and cilantro. The menu also has a collection of quesadillas and tacos to choose from. Lunch is served from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm.

3. Black Mountain Lodge

Black Mountain Lodge at Arapahoe Basin is at the top of the Black Mountain Express lift but is accessible from Lenawee Mountain Lift, Pallavicini Lift, and the Beavers List. The location of this restaurant offers beautiful views of the Continental Divide. The menu is based on traditional American fare. We recommend the Carolina Pulled Pork Sandwich and the White Bean Chicken Chili. If it is a blue-bird day, try and get a seat outside on an Adirondack chair on the deck.

4. Wildwood Smokehouse

Wildwood Smokehouse is a classic BBQ restaurant located two miles high at the top of chairs 3 and 7 at Vail Ski Resort. The beef brisket sandwich is to die for! We recommend splitting it because the sandwich is extremely large. There is great indoor and outdoor seating so no matter the weather, you can enjoy this spot. Besides the brisket sandwich, the best part of Wildwood Smokehouse is its proximity to the Legendary Back Bowls. Once you’re done eating, be sure to check them out!

5. SaddleRidge

SaddleRidge at Beaver Creek Resort provides a unique dining experience in an American museum. The restaurant is home to the largest collection of Western American artifacts. SaddleRidge serves lunch and dinner. The lunch menu features elevated sandwiches like a ranch chicken sandwich made with ancho chicken breast, tomatillo ranch, bacon, shredded lettuce, tomato on a brioche bun. If you are looking for something on the heavier side, check out their large plates where you can find a venison flank steak. The dinner menu is quite exquisite. You will find a great mixture of beef, bison, game, and seafood. SaddleRidge does not have onsite parking, but you can schedule a free shuttle.
