Brian Nolan has successfully transplanted his Beaver Creek mainstay into the new Arrabelle at Vail Square, the Euro-style architectural statement at the heart of the Lionshead rebirth. Slopeside and just steps from the gondola, the Chophouse delivers steakhouse chic to the base of the mountain. Hit the patio for sun and conversation, then move inside for a Beefeater martini and an 18-oz. bone-in rib-eye—and toast the end of
a perfect ski day.
