Well worth a visit for a refuel! The chicken stew was the best food I've ever eaten on a mountain and it's an awesome area to ski.

After nine consecutive seasons visiting Snowmass I can state categorically, this is my family's favorite restaurant. The newly redone space is beautiful. The view is beautiful. The service is excellent. The food is consistently delectable.

Wow, what can I say. The makeover of Gwyn's is absolutely fabulous. We had lunch there 3 days in a row and it was great every time, Gwyn and team keep up the great work. And thanks for moving restrooms to the main level!

Gwyns has undergone a major renovation and it's pretty but gone is the intimacy and many of the long time staff. Also gone, unless you ask 48 hours in advance (who knew?) are the famous seafood puffs. Other menu items are familiar. Our waitress was overwhelmed it seemed

I've been enjoying Gwyns Restaurant on Snowmass Ski Mountain for the last 25 years. The food has been consistently the best on the ski mountain hands down, and will compete with any Restaurant in Aspen.

Gwyn's has a lovely innovative yet traditional menu with lots of local offerings - elk meatballs, trout etc. The food was delicious, with good service. We'll be back!

Always an excellent breakfast and the highlight of skiing Snowmass. Lovely room after the remodel, views even better with the new large windows.

Huevos rancheros, wild boar sausage and the pancakes... More

Food choices pretty good for an on mountain venue but taken aback when charged US$11 for a coffee with an extra shot! Essentially paid for 2 coffees. Poor staff training or a rip off. Either way; Disappointing!
