Concierge.com's insider take:
This mountainside, members-only club opens its doors to outsiders for dinner during the ski season only. The catch: You can only reach it via a sleigh ride up the mountain attached to a Sno-Cat—about 10 minutes from the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch, where these sleighs depart every 15 minutes on the hour after 5 p.m. But it's worth the trek for its big-timber design, mountain views, and warming fireplaces. The food is ambitious—scallop-and-pork-belly sandwich with parsnip purée and hollandaise—but excellent; there's also a kids' menu at the early seating. A popular alternative is Beano's Cabin: It also has the mountain views, the good food, and the fireplaces, but the Sno-Cat ride (from Beaver Creek Village) is more like 20 minutes—a bit long on a cold night (970-949-9090).
