Enjoy a farm-to-table Colorado-inspired culinary experience prepared by Chef Christopher Rybak at the beautiful and rustic Black Mountain Lodge at mid-mountain. Hike to and from dinner through wildflower fields on our Argentine-North Fork Trail or take the Black Mountain Express lift to a legendary dining experience that only A-Basin can provide.
