Vail’s Game Creek Restaurant offers up quite the experience. Hop on the Eagle Bahn Gondola, snuggle up in a plush blanket and be whisked up the mountain to your snowcat chariot. Once there, enjoy the plush ride to the remote trail side location where your multi-course dinner awaits.

As you enter, you’ll truly feel like you are somewhere in a cabin high in the Austrian Alps as Game Creek Restuarant’s unique decor, exposed beams and epic views of the mountains instantly draws you into this fantasy. Upon being seated order up a deliciously tasty Pecan Old Fashioned before you choose between the four course prix fixe menu or the five course chef’s table dinner. Either way you cannot go wrong. Each meal is prepared with precision excellence and love. You’ll be treated to a spectacular meal (like the one that I enjoyed and photographed above) worth talking about the entire snowcat ride back down to the gondola.
