Owner: Curt Thorne

“After a career in country singing, I moved to the mountains to get away from the city life.  I’ve worked in restaurants since I was 14 years old, and have owned restaurants since 2004 with my first one being the Canyon’s Edge.  I love the social aspect of running restaurants, and pride myself on delivering quality, and a great experience every time a guest walks through the door.  Away from work, I am a husband, a father of two, a mountain enthusiast, hockey lover and avid golfer.”


Executive Chef: Dominic Chabot
