Located at 12,456 feet, il Rifugio at Snow Plume is the highest-elevation restaurant in North America, offering a European-style bistro specializing in wine and charcuterie pairings featuring both imported and local-to-Colorado meats and cheeses. Guests can also enjoy soup, salad, flatbreads, and espresso drinks. This restaurant concept was inspired by the breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, reminiscent of the Alps.

Following an extensive renovation, il Rifugio is bigger and better, and we are proud of our sustainability upgrades to Snow Plume. The building has no running water, composting toilets, minimal waste, and features the highest solar array in North America on its roof.

Please note: Il Rifugio opens at 9 a.m. for pastries and coffee. Lunch is served from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Table service is now offered. No reservations needed.
