Dinner places in Arapahoe Basin/Keystone area

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am going to stay at a lodge in Keystone and ski at Arapahoe Basin from this coming weekend for four nights. Does anyone recommend any nice restaurant in the area. It will be just myself.

The place I am going to stay seems to be pretty much the base of Keystone, and am willing to drive up to 30 minutes. The closer the better, but I do not want to end up eating at a same place for four nights.

okay first for great food & ski atmosphere try kickapoos in the river run village, kind of like a ski sports bar but great food & decent prices, there is also an italian rest in river run can't remember the name, upscale the garden room restaurant on keystone lake at the skating rink, then if you like steaks you must drive to silverthorne to eat at the mint, you can pick & cook your own steak or they will cook it for you. pick up a copy of the guide or whatever they call it this season a free guide to summit county usually with coupons for lots of different things.
good luck bteddy

Breckenridge Brewery is just outside of town, maybe 15 minutes from where you are. Good food and some of Colorado's best fresh beer. There's absolutely nothing around the Basin other than great skiing. There's also a really good pizza place in Idaho Springs (back toward Denver). The name escapes me right now, but it's the only place in Idaho Springs and everyone knows it. It's driving me nuts that I can't think of the name, lol.

Konayuki, My favorite resturant in Colorado is at Keystone, Ski Tip Inn. Very small, they serve a 5 course meal with desert served in front of a huge fire place, a bit pricey but well worth it. Reservations a must. Makes for a memorable evening. More moderate is the Great Northern in the river run area. Cheap eats and locals hang out try the Cala, its at Swan Mtn rd, go left from Keystone then an immediate right. In Dillon we like Pug Ryans, great ribs and fish & chips. In Breck try Cafe Alpine, great Tapas!

One fun thing to do at Keystone is to ride the gondola back up the mountain at night ... there are a couple of great restaurants up top. Alpenglo Stube, and the fondue place. What is that place called.... It is very fun, like a big beer hall, complete with oompah band.
