Want to know my all-time favorite restaurant in all of Aspen? Sundeck!!! Sitting at 11,220 feet at the top of Aspen Mountain, it’s got incredibly delicious, hot, freshly prepared food at a relatively reasonable price.
When you come to Aspen, you must buy a gondola pass to take you to the top of the mountain. Not only do you get to eat incredible food and enjoy breath-taking views of Colorado, but they have tons of activities for kids and adults alike: frisbee golf, corn hole, ropes course, a mini tree house, digging for “gold” nuggets, rock-climbing, clowns, trampolines, yoga, ATVs, hang-gliding, guided nature walks, hiking trails… take your pick!
Anyways, take a look at the outstanding food we ordered from Sundeck below.
Sundeck – Aspen Mountain: 11,220 feet
Veggie burger with tahini, sliced carrots, cucumbers, tomato, sprouts, lettuce and Feta with a mixed green salad.
Turkey sandwich with bacon, sprouts (Dad omitted), cranberry sauce (Dad omitted), tomato with mixed green salad.
Grilled chicken salad with black beans, chickpeas, chopped tomatoes and curry quinoa.
We cleaned our plates!
After lunch it was time to hit the “slopes”, not to ski, but to play some 18-hole frisbee golf! We actually only played the first 9… the back 9 holes are hard! One off-throw, and you’ll be trekking down a steep black diamond slope to go find your frisbee that could either be lodged in-between scattered rocks and boulders or high up in a pine tree! (This has happened to us before!)

Matt and me.
Time to head back down to town for some relaxation. You burn a lot of calories walking up and down this mountain!
