Colorado Mountain Top Dining For Valentine’s Day
You've been wracking your brain trying to come up with something awesome for Valentine's Day that your significant other would never expect, haven't you?
Well search no more, because this idea will be celebrated as one of the best ideas you have ever had. Here are five of the most amazing mountaintop dining experiences in Colorado. Reservations are expected!
Beano's Cabin-Beaver Creek
Get this. Your experience begins with an open-air sleigh ride to the restaurant. Romantic much? And once you get there, tucked into the aspens is a place that your Valentine date is going to gush about for a long time. And the food? World class.
This is the highest elevated AAA Four Diamond dining experience in all of North America. At 11,666 feet the views are amazing, as you would expect. Add in the fact that it takes two gondola rides to get there and you can feel the romance heating up even through the cold. Enjoy the food, the fire and the amazing experience your palette will have. This one says can't miss!
Start with a gondola ride, of course, since walking up a snow covered mountain isn't an option, but then it gets even cooler. You have heard of horse0-drawn sleighs, but have you ever been in a sleigh pulled by a snowcat? I thought not. Gourmet food and excellent entertainment await!
Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro-Aspen
Ride the snowcat to one impressive spot. In addition to the world-class cuisine, you're enjoying it in a cabin that sits high atop the mountain. The view from the deck is outstanding. Valentine's Day winner!
A common theme at these high elevation eateries is the horse-drawn or snowcat-drawn sleigh rides and this one is no different. What is different is the view. At Zach's Cabin, you are on the mountainside overlooking Bachelor Gulch. A Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence winner 10 years in a row. Outstanding choice!
Enjoy your Valentine's Day dinner.
