Backcountry Gourmet

Hungry after a long day of hiking or skiing? You've come to the right place! While you're relaxing around the campfire listening to some tunes, enjoy one of the many delicious offerings from the Backcountry Gourmet food truck. From healthy salads to mouthwatering sliders and fries, kid's menu - there's something for everyone to snack on! 

Live Music on the Patio

Sit by one of 6 fire pits, listen to live music, sip libations next to our creek.  All with the San Juan Mountains as your backdrop. But only if you like FUN!
