This is a locals resort but they are super friendly. The most fun was planning a last minute Memorial Day weekend trip to Breckenridge only to find that three feet of snow fell the week before. Sure, the bottom first thing in the AM is...More

There is a cafeteria at the base and another one in the mid-mountain lodge which has some special entrees for lunch.
