Black Mountain Lodge is THE mid-mountain stop at Arapahoe Basin. This ski-in/ski-out dining facility serves bistro-style entrees, smoked meats, bison stew, soups and salads. Hot food is served from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. One of their specialties is a bacon Bloody Mary, and that alone may be worth a stop. And, of course, there are the spectacular views. Enjoy an elevated experience at this resort restaurant on the expansive deck made for soaking up the Colorado mountain sunshine. Non-skiers can take the Black Mountain Express lift up with a foot passenger lift ticket. In summer, you can hike up to the BML for special events.
