The Carabiner is a comfortable bar with decent food. Great for a more upscale lunch during ski season than the cafeteria. Music some evenings. Wide selection of food choices, good bar, pleasant service. Nice environment with a good view.

Great views and friendly staff. We had breakfast, it was delicious. You get a beautiful view from your table. It's also very cozy by the fireplace.

We had breakfast every day here and one dinner. The food was great with every visit. The staff were excellent, the exact right balance of making sure all is well, and leaving you alone.

Skipped our conference breakfast and came here. It was good. Nothing special. The beet hash was good for something different. Service was good but slow.
