This place has amazing food and is located right at the base of the mountain. The atmosphere is very welcoming with a ski-lodge feel. The wait staff was very attentive even though they were crazy busy when we were there. I eat here on every trip to the Butte and highly recommend you do the same.

At first glance the Avalance Bar & Grill is just another sports bar, but at closer inspection is has great character and vintage charm. At with four people, and we all raved about our food!

Avalanche was recommended to me by my ski instructor. He was spot on. Both times I went for lunch I had to wait about 10-15 minutes for a table. Your whole party has to be there otherwise they won't seat you. The first time I ordered the potstickers and sweet potato waffle fries. The fried potstickers were okay, but the... More

My family loves the Avalanche and we always eat there at least once every time we ski in Crested Butte.

I had lunch apres ski with a group of ladies. The chicken pot pie was so yummy and really hit the spot since I was very cold. Service was good, and the server told us up front that they prefer not to split checks, so we were prepared.

You can dine in or take out! Pizza is yummy, they offer a nice variety of food and beverage, and the atmosphere is fun! It's a great place to eat lunch (in between ski runs) and dinner, or just go for drinks. It's a sports lovers "paradise" with sports memorabilia and TVs on virtually every wall. Our family (with two... More

We ate at this place every day during our stay. It the best deal for your money, food is good, not fancy and not expensive. Ecerything you need after all day skiing. Kids love the food and desert too.

Great character, lively crowd, and friendly bartenders. We stopped in for a few pints and appetizers after a day on the slopes - even though they were out of many items (missing truck shipment), the server/bartender was quick to recommend a great dish and her friendliness made up for the lack of available items. Recommend if you can find a... More

The food is excellent and everyone was happy with the meal but on Tuesday 12/28/2016 it took an hour for a party of 9 to be seated (they don't take reservations), and then almost as long to get the food. Plan accordingly!
