My girlfriend and I are heading to WTG Feb 1-2. I have not been since I was very young, and was wondering about the best option for dinner. I have no hesitation about going to Copper Mine if it is worth it. I think Ember at Snowshoe is worth it. Can the same be said about any of the restaurants at WTG? Would someone help steer me in the right direction?

I am new to the message board, and look forward to reading more and posting.

TRJ...most of the restaurants are tray-food type of places. Nothing special but acceptable. The Edge is the other sit down option. Not too pricey, kind of TGIFridays quality of fare. Copper Mine looks fancy at least but have never eaten there. Looks like a good romantic dinner type of place. The Edge is usually pretty rowdy as there is a bar and sometimes a band.

If you try The Copper Mine let us know how it was. There is a new option at the bottom of the Mountain, behind the Ski-Barn. Devils Backbone brewery or something like that as well.

I usually dine with a 12 year old, so you might want to consider the source. Here is my ski partner partaking of a typical on-mountain meal.

There are three options on the mountain for sit down eating. Ditto the other post on The Edge. The Copper Mine is nice and prices are a little high, but we have eaten there several times and never had a bad meal. The menu is al a carte-- so think a steak and a huge side of asparagus. The other option not mentioned yet is the Devils Knob Grill at the Devils Knob golf course. Food is good, atmosphere is country clubish. But a quick note, I have not eaten at any of these during ski season--only leaf peeping weekends.

We were up a couple of weekends ago, Vito's is now open accross form the IGA. Best pizza this side of Crozet. Real toss up between Vito's and Crozet Pizza. There is also a restaurant at the Stoney Creek Golf Course. Never had a bad meal there.

The new brewery is always packed, haven't wanted to wait so haven't eaten there yet but the in-laws rave about it. There is another brewery before you get to Wintergreen. I think they've changed cooks but they used to have decent food.

Have fun!!!

Try Basic Necessities -- a wonderful, small restaurant on 151. They have great food, wines, cheese and bread!

I have a house available for rent at Wintergreen - it's on the mountain within walking distance to the ski shuttle and comes with discount ski passes and an owner's parking lot transponder. See or call 520 971-4270 for more information!
