Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro, the Aspen Highlands popular party spot, has suspended its nighttime service due to a lack of snow.

“At this time we have canceled nighttime dinners,” Aspen Skiing Co. spokesman Jeff Hanle wrote in an email to The Aspen Times. “There is not enough snow on the road to transport public up the hill and give them the experience they are looking for. Daytime service continues as normal.”

Skico also has relocated some of Cloud Nine’s previously booked private nighttime dinners to other spots, Hanle said.

Located midway up Highlands, Cloud Nine is typically open Wednesday and Thursday nights through reservations only. Patrons take a snowcat to and from the rustic restaurant, which has a capacity of 48 guests.

Hanle said Skico will re-evaluate the situation “when we get more snow.”

Cloud Nine’s daytime operations aren’t dependent on the snowcats. Patrons typically ski or snowboard down from the restaurant.

The restaurant closes for the season April 8.
