We stopped in at Avalanche for burgers before hitting the slopes. Seriously great burgers, one of the best I've had. I love the customizing options, awesome friendly service, and good beer selection. Fun atmosphere, right off the slopes!

The restaurant has a casual atmosphere and the food was pretty good. Would not recommend the nachos because even though they looked good there was really no taste to them. Everything else we ordered was good. And, we thought the service was very good.

Avalanche is a nice restaurant at the base of the mountain. They offer a wide variety of food which is important when you have kids. The service is good and the staff is nice.

This is a decent establishment for drinks on the mountain (good location), while skiing or apres, but don't expect food above cafeteria grade and note that for dining in CB there are much more agreeable restaurants.

No not at all.
Are you really closed in the evenings during the summer this year, 2015? I hope not. We were depending on you for dinners in August.
