I stopped into the Avalanche on a whim. I was hungry. The service was great! And it was very apparent that the locals loved this place. It was obvious that this was a place to go after skiing / riding the slopes of Crested Butte....More

Airy sports bar & grill with high ceilings & a deck overlooking the ski lift, plus an American menu. Good food, good service and decent prices for a ski base restaurant.

Kids approved the grilled cheese, pasta with red sauce. For the adults The burger with avocado was tasty and the margaritas were good. It provides a nice variety of food and daily specials on the chalk board.
