There are four places to eat at Keystone on-mountain of which the Alpenglow Stube, 3,550m up on North Peak is the most famed, because it provides gourmet cuisine by table service at one of the highest fine-dining locations in North America (and probably the world). Such luxuries do come at a price however with the basic lunch package coming in at a little over 30 dollars – although even ‘basic’ includes four courses. The three other choices offer the more regular ski area cafeteria style experience.

Keystone has about 20 places to eat spread around its multiple small base areas, the majority at River Run Village.
The Keystone Ranch is one of the best establishments in resort, making a speciality of serving cuisine made from locally sourced ingredients including local venison, elk, mushrooms and Colorado trout.
A popular option is the dinner sleigh ride with a cosy horse-drawn sleigh ride through the snow-covered valley ending at a picturesque restored ranch homestead where a great spread is laid on with all the trimmings.
The Ski Tip Lodge is one of the more atmospheric options, once a stagecoach stop in the late nineteenth century and a ski lodge in the 1940s, it serves regional American meals. Der Fondue Chessel is good for fondue and raclette and the Alpenglow Stube offers fine dining for dinner as well as lunch.
