Tennessee Pass Cookhouse

It's hard to believe that we've already spent 4 weeks here in the mountains. Overall, it's been great, but we missed several days of skiing due to bad weather. So, with just 5 days left, we plan to ski every day!

Today though was just gorgeous
- high temps and sunny - so we drove again to the Tennessee Pass Cookhouse (commonly known as the Yurt) for lunch. The scenery from the deck of the Yurt is just breathtaking. As mentioned earlier in my BLOG, the food there is scrumptious.

What I loved about it today was that the food was just as good as the first time. It's hard for a restaurant to provide consistently good fare, but they met the challenge. There were 8 of us and everyone loved the food ranging from buffalo burgers to salmon croissants to Roxanne's famous cookies.

They also offer a experience a unique dining adventure for $75.00 which include a four-course gourmet dinner. There's only one seating daily starting with the group meeting at the Nordic Center (base of Ski Cooper in Leadville) at 5:30pm. All entrees must be ordered ahead of time. See their website for the menu:

Owners Roxanne and Ty are multi-talented, very personable and make you feel welcome from the minute you check in. For a unique, memorable dining experience, you must try the Tennessee Pass Cookhouse!
