Best meal in the entire Vail/Keystone/Breckenridge area! Outstanding service, incredible 4-course prix fix menu, gorgeous setting in a lovely, romantic inn surrounded by towering trees and breathtaking mountain scenery. Dessert and coffee is served by the fire in either the living room or lounge. Perfect dining experience!

The atmosphere of a Swiss chalet with a great view is fantastic. Service is exceptional. I felt the food was very good, but not much different than other top Summit County restaurants. Definitely would recommend - excellent.

Ski Tip Lodge is a huge surprise, a bit of traditional, old-style Vermont ski ambiance set in the Colorado Rockies. The architecture and decor are much more Swiss chalet / 10th Mt. Division than Western big-hat macho. My wife is almost blind, so negotiating the narrow twists and turns and steps down to the bar can be a challenge, but the dining room is lit just well enough for her. Megan, the sommelier and barkeep, knows her cellar; and Dominic, who has looked after us more than once, is the consummate pro waiter. Because they're pricey but also because they're so memorably good, we save meals at Ski Tip Lodge for special occasions—Christmas holidays with family or friends, that sort of thing.

We've known about Ski Tip Lodge for years, but had never dined there. It was a birthday dinner and a wonderful choice. The menu was fabulous. Our server had an in depth knowledge of wines being served and offered good information even on the wines by the glass. Service was first rate. Will definitely return.
We had a terrific meal at Ski Tips, The menu was interesting and delicious and service superb. The Sommelier was, however, overly chatty so we didn't receive our second bottle of red wine until well after we were served our entrees. He did redeem himself over dessert.
Special dining experience
Picked this restaurant because it was listed as the top restaurant in Keystone. Then found out it is in the top 100 in the country. Our entire experience was perfect. The drinks, wine, food and service were top notch. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The wine steward was very knowledgeable, but we didn't feel pressured toward the most expensive choices. The service was attentive but never rushed. Love all the layers of favors and unique preparation of dishes. We were nervous about spending that much on dinner, but the whole experience was well worth the money. A very pleasant ending to our vacation.
Never Fails to Amaze!
We are locals who have always considered The Ski Tip to be our special occasion go to restaurant for decades. In all of the years we have had the pleasure of dining at The Ski Tip we have never once been disappointment with the quality and specialty of the foods, the outstanding wine list and most of all, the friendly and attentive staff. Always a pleasure! Do not miss this wonderful dining experience.
Recommended by a local
We are part time residents of Summit County and enjoy going out to better restaurants. The Ski Tip Lodge is in an historic log lodge with an absolutely incredible menu. If you are truly a foodie, this place is a must. We will be back, most likely for a special occasion.sk
ski tip always delvers
This must be my fifth or sixth dinner at th ski tip and it is always excellent and memorable. The atmosphere is unique, cozy, nostalgic. The staff is excellent and very knowledgable. The menu changes daily but I can always find at least three selections I'd be more than happy with. My duck was so tasteful. Try the wine pairings. The sommelier is very entertaining and introduces some very tasty pairings. Desert. And after dinner drinks in the fireplace area outside of the main dining area is a great plus
Another Ski Tip dinner exceeds high expectations
What a great place for fine dining nestled along the Snake River at the base of Dercum Mountain. Superb 4-course dinners with each designed to please the visual, olfactory, and gustatory senses. And with wine-pairings to enhance each course, be prepared for a memorable experience. We will be back.
We visited the Ski Tip Lodge for dinner with our daughter while visiting her in CO. We expected an outstanding evening but it far exceeded our expectations. We started with a perfect cocktail in the sunken sitting area in front of the wood fireplace in the lounge. Our wait staff was very knowledge about the creative menu preparation and had a complete knowledge of the extensive wine list. The food was absolutely amazing!! This was an evening to remember - one that we hope to have again - sooner rather than later!!
Out of this world
We booked this place (and you should always book as it's not very big) only knowing it was #1 on tripadvisor and having friends recommend it. It was myself, husband and 2 kids (age 10 & 13) and even though they were the only kids there, it's worth taking them for the culinary experience. We didn't realise it was a set menu with a set tariff (which is expensive for kids over 12) but loved every choice they had and each course was cooked to perfection. To see my 10 year old drool over the chicken main course was priceless. The wine menu was also amazing and the wait staff very thorough and knowledgeable. The sommelier explained her wines in detail and our server was passionate about the food choices. We had been told beforehand to have our dessert by the fire which we did and they too were amazing. Overall it's a cosy place (also a B&B) with a lovely atmosphere. Yes it's pricey but this'll be one place you'll never forget.
Best Restaurant in the World (IMHO)
The Ski Tip Lodge is expensive but worth every penny. I would HIGHLY recommend the wine pairing. The sommelier has been there for years and is amazingly knowledgeable. The lodge is historic and the dining room is cozy and warm. Dessert is usually served in a separate room next to a fireplace. We dine here every time we are in Keystone and always treasure the experience.
Ambiance and wait staff were amazing! Based on the other reviews I expected the food to be excellent. It wasn't. It was definitely worth checking out. I loved being moved to another room by the fire for desert. Overall fun experience. If you are a foodie, you will be disappointed :(
Excellent Dining Experience
We eat at Ski Tip Lodge a couple of times a year. The food is always excellent and the service is impeccable. Though we don't go very often, the staff remembers us and treats us like old friends. We especially enjoy the soups, but every course is a delight.
My Favorite Place for Dining in Summit County
We have been dining at Ski Tip for over 25 years. It is always fabulous! The atmosphere in the winter is cozy, warm and welcoming. The staff are all professional but friendly. The entrees are always wonderful and dessert in the living room or by the fireplace is just the best! I highly recommend Ski Tip!
Tremendous food and service
Tremendous food and service. The wind is that the wine steward recommended was outstanding and all of the food was great as well. The atmosphere is very charming. We had an after dinner drink along with dessert in front of a roaring fireplace in the historic Lodge.
My husband and I, took the weekend for a romantic getaway. We spent the night at the Hotel and we get a reservation for the restaurant on Friday at 5:45 p.m. It is important to make reservation in advance, we were lucky to find a table at the last moment.
The service was amazing, and the food excellent. Every course was delicious, I could not tell which one was my favorite.
Finally we ate the desserts next to the fireplace, which I thought it was a very good idea, to change the ambiance. We had apple strudel and a lemon parfait, both delicious... I highly recommend this restaurant.
