You can drive to the Minturn Saloon if you want to, but for hard-core backcountry powder hounds, it's way more fun to ride the lifts at Vail and swoosh down the misnamed Minturn Mile—a three-mile run through the wilderness that plunges nearly 3,100 feet and ends at this restaurant. Open since 1901, the Minturn Saloon has a memorabilia-decked bar, fireplace, and red-check tablecloths, making it an informal and iconic end to an outdoorsy Colorado day. The mostly Mexican fare is fit for fresh-air appetites: Go for the broiled quail and a liter margarita made with organic agave nectar and freshly squeezed lime. Just make sure you have a designated driver—or a pair of skis with climbing skins—to ferry you away at the night's end.—Sarah Tuff

Note: The Minturn Mile is an unpatrolled area outside of resort boundaries; ski at your own risk. See the Minturn Salon Web site and Vail's safety guidelines for more information.

Open daily 5 to 9:30 pm (winter), 5:30 to 9:30 pm (summer).
