Il Rifugio Restaurant

Visit Online


Located at 12,456 feet at the summit of A-Basin, Il Rifugio at Snowplume is North America’s highest restaurant.

Currently closed for remodeling, Il Rifugio will offer a European-style bistro specializing in wine and cheese or charcuterie pairings. Guests will enjoy soup, salad, flatbreads, and espresso drinks.

The sustainable building is also a ski patrol base, and on a good day, you can still find one of A-Basin’s friendly avalanche dogs playing outside.
