Friday Night Dinner

The Scott family would like to invite everyone to dinner on Friday night, so if you're in town please join us! We'll be getting box lunches from an excellent local deli, and taking them with us up the gondola ride at Vail Ski Resort. That's right, we'll be eating dinner at the top of Vail mountain with amazing 360* views! Details are as follows...

Dinner: We will meet for dinner at 6:00pm on Talons Deck. Talons Deck is at the top of the Vail ski mountain and the only way to get there is to take the gondola ride up the mountain. We will have box lunches from an excellent local deli. Friday evenings there is live music on the deck so feel free to stick around for music and drinks.
The Eagle Bahn Gondola is a large enclosed chairlift. The ride takes only about 10 minutes and has great views of Vail and the surrounding area. Follow this link for more Gondola Information. gondola
Backup Plan: In case of cold or rainy weather, we will meet for dinner at the Christie Lodge in Avon at 6:00pm. We will have our box lunches and maybe head to a bar or cafe after eating. If you're unsure about the weather, call one of us to get the scoop.
Directions: To get to the Eagle Bahn Gondola at Vail Ski Resort, you'll park in a parking structure called Lionshead and then take a short walk through town. You may want to see if the concierge at The Christie Lodge has any good maps of the area, because I didn't have much luck finding them online. Here is some basic directions:
  1. From the West: Heading East on I-70, take Vail Exit #176. Follow the roundabout and pass under I-70. At the next roundabout, veer Right towards "Lionshead Village" onto S. Frontage Rd.
  2. From the East: Heading West on I-70, take Vail Exit #176. At the bottom of the ramp, follow the roundabout to head on S. Frontage Rd. towards "Lionshead Village"
  3. After about 1/4 mile, look for the Lionshead Parking Structure on your left.
  4. Park in the Lionshead Parking Structure (Parking is FREE in the summer).
  5. Exit the parking structure on the southwest side, and when you go down the stairs you'll see a Subway and a covered bus stop across the street.
  6. Cross the street (E. Lionshead Circle) and go past the bus stop.
  7. You will start to see shops and restaurants, such as Vail Coffee, Flying Burrito, Double Diamond and Garfinkel's Bar.
  8. After Garfinkel's, walk down the ramp and you'll see a yellow tent. This is the entrance to the Gondola!
  9. After you get off the gondola, just head for Talon's Deck, and we'll be hanging out somewhere outside on the patio.
If you get lost, you can call try calling one of us, or the Vail Resort Activities Desk at 970-476-9090.
