Where to Eat

Indulge at one of our local eateries and don't be afraid to order a morning beverage to accompany your meal; the 5 pm rule doesn't apply in mountain towns! 

Some restaurants may have changed operating hours or certain menu changes. We recommend contacting them in advance to confirm their hours and menu.
