Der Fondue Chessel or Alpenglow Stube
Though Keystone is about 14 miles from Breckenridge, two restaurants atop its mountain make it well worth the drive. Be sure to dress warm for the two night-time gondola rides (a total of 40 minutes), which soar above night skiing and closed runs, through a quiet forest and to the top of North Peak at 11,444 feet. Der Fondue Chessel is a family-friendly dinner fondue experience that covers the entire span of fondue, from savory cheese (with apples, bread and more), meat and seafood entrees, and, of course, the mouth-watering, endorphin-producing melted chocolate, with strawberries, bananas, pound cake and other goodies to swirl. Alpenglow Stube offers a sophisticated dining experience. The Old-World culinary masterpieces include a six-course meal, complete with a caviar course, a sorbet palette cleanser, appetizers such as pheasant confit or ragout of blue crab, main courses of fish, lamb, duck and beef and rich deserts like custard with berries or pear tartlets.
