Am still dreaming of my salmon Cesar salad from here. Never had a bad meal here during our stay at big sky resorts. Some of the other restaurants feel a little mass produced. Carabiners didn't have that feel. The shrimp appetizer is also good but be aware is literally two skewers so don't expect it to be a meal in... More

Bartender and server we very helpful on our Thursday brunch. Fun characters that were friendly throughout the weekend. Server even helped with finding a good hiking trail and how to get down to the town area, away from resort.

The food and atmosphere were great, but the food was a bit pricy for what we got and the service was decent. I was happy they had good gluten free options, including bread! :)

Located in Summit Hotel where we are staying. Stopped in for a coffee drink break during our ski day. Nice decor. Menu looks appetizing. Server was good. Not crowded. Somewhat expensive as one would expect at a resort facility. I gave a 4 star instead of 5 review simply due to personal preference. We prefer a lively, more laid back... More

Lunched here on a few occasions over New Year and food, drinks and service were of high quality. Little on the expensive side, but you get what you pay for. All tables enjoy a view onto the slopes and a full bar service is available.

Our out of town guests treated us to dinner at the Carabiner over the Holidays. The Carabiner was our suggestion, so we were relieved that everyone at the table enjoyed their various meals. The menu changes from season to season and to us it is exceptionally good this ski season with something for everyone's taste. I had the Peruvian Tacos,... More

At first blush it might appear that the Carabiner is a bar. It is truly a multifaceted restaurant with indoor and outdoor (weather permitting) dining. The full bar has an extensive list of favorites and is well stocked. The menu has perfect items for lunching skiers and arrives in a reasonable time to get you back on the slopes. It... More

The ambience was great for a date night at the mountain base but the experience was mediocre. The food was overpriced for the quality and taste. We ordered the prime rib which was nothing special, a bit tough and the au jus had minimal flavor. The views were spectacular and the bar drinks were strong but our meal was unimpressive.... More
