Slopeside in that it's right at the bottom of the home run in Les Houches so you can literally ski onto the top terrace. Funky, kitsch, big and a large inside area for apres ski make it a great stop. They do lunch specials and though evening meals maybe push towards being a bit pricey its all wholesome English/French fusion cuisine so there's a lot more choice than just tartiflette and variations there of.
Live bands play regularly and if you're down in family-friendly Les Houches as opposed to knees-up Chamonix, you'll be thankful for the Kitsch Inn offering a bit of liveliness!
This club is over 20 years old but if ever you needed proof of something getting better with age Jumpin' Hot is it. Blues, roots, ska, it seems to effortlessly combine quality music to move to, with a Newcastle flair. Punters are friendly, the atmosphere is sweaty and the dancing hectic, if not always great.
A superb night out - don't even bother seeing who's on, just go and you'll enjoy it.
It pains me to reveal this secret spot but then it is on Main Street in Breckenridge so perhaps it's not that secret. Daylight Donuts is a fantastic place to go for breakfast before hitting the slopes. You can choose from a series of set platters - pancakes, bacon and hash browns or tortillas or sweeter options - plus endless coffee and some of the best donuts you'll ever munch. Good place to meet locals too and not expensive even taking the crashing exchange rate into account.

I had an unplanned stopover in Butte and stumbled (literally) across this place in the Downtown area of the city. The Margueritas were excellent. It is a fusion of Mexican/ American food and although not cheap it is like a breath of fresh air in a state where moose and elk burgers are pretty standard.
Atmosphere is lively and the owner - Fred - omnipresent. Creative and inspired eaterie.
