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

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

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!

Great place for dinner and to watch a game. Very good staff / good food / fun atmosphere. Fun bar and seemed to be the place where the local hang out to meet and greet!
