Anchored in Aspen Ski Culture

Before the Silver Queen Gondola and before the Shadow Mountain lift, some of Aspen’s earliest skiers were carried on a boat towed up Ajax by a cable. The Boat Tow, is a new Gravity Haus culinary concept that plays tribute to the history of Aspen ski culture. It’s a place where community comes together over a shared passion for the mountains, outdoor adventure, and new experiences.

1937 - 1946

The boat tow ski lift ran at Aspen Mountain -the inspiration behind it all!

Barbara S

What a find! Super excited to have a place like this in Aspen….high quality and imaginative “bar” food. The Haus Tots are ridiculously fabulous!

Great food, value and vibe! Will definitely make this a regular spot.

The food and service was excellent. There were many reasonably priced items on the menu, which is rare for Aspen these days. We will return soon!

It was our first time at Boat Tow, and we loved it. Great atmosphere. I love that ski racing was on the TV, and the design was so skied forward - even with a Herbert Bayer!
