They have pizzas and draft brews in the afternoon and evening, along with happy hour specials with to-go slices from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Diners can watch sports on the big-screen TVs while they eat or call ahead at (970) 349-8030 to place an order to go.

The Umbrella Bar at Ten Peaks is located at the top of Painter Boy chairlift, offering postcard-perfect views of ten different mountain peaks along with a variety of dining options for the whole family, including delicious sandwiches, salads and specialty cocktails.
