Really enjoyed the multiple meals we had during our week. Tried a multitude of menu options and enjoyed them all. Highly recommend the chips and salsa.

The Avalanche resturant was crowded since the restaurant choices are slim at the base of the mountain

Great bar and grill in the middle of everything in Mt Crested Butte. Cozy atmosphere with a nice variety on the menu. Service was outstanding with a touch of local knowledge. Very reasonable prices. The peanut butter pie is amazing. Don't miss this place!!

I had a quick lunch at the Avalanche. Ordered the burger without a bun, with mushrooms, sautéed onions, avocado, and fries. Very good lunch. The atmosphere was ok. Waitress was friendly and helpful (I had questions about gluten free options).

Very busy place when the lifts close as it is right at the base. Had drinks and apps post skiing and both were very good.
