Alpino Vino (Winter Only)

Alpino Vino is a must-visit restaurant for anyone looking for a unique dining experience. Situated at an elevation of 11,966 feet, it is North America’s second-highest elevation restaurant. Access it by skiing in during the day or taking a custom-built snow coach at night. Either way, you’ll be treated to world-class Italian American cuisine and a wine list to match.

Lunchtime at Alpino Vino is a treat, with an Alpine Italian menu featuring handmade pastas, paninis, and antipasti, all served with fantastic views of the Wilson Range. For dinner, the restaurant offers a 4-course, prix-fixe, Northern Italian menu with wine pairings chosen by a team of knowledgeable sommeliers.

Step outside onto the expansive, multi-tiered deck and enjoy the European teak furniture, sheepskin throws, and daybeds while taking in the rustic outdoor setting. Inside, the high alpine ambiance is reminiscent of the refugi found throughout Northern Italy’s Dolomites, complete with hand-hewn beams, rustic furniture, stone floors, and a wood-burning fireplace.

Originally a private retreat designed by a famed local architect on an historic mining claim, Alpino Vino is now the cornerstone of Telluride Ski Resort’s award-winning culinary offerings. To get there, take Gold Hill Express (Lift 14) and ski down See Forever to the front door during the day. For evening reservations, ride Alpino Vino’s heated snow coach from the top of the Gondola to the front door! Contact the concierge for more information.
