Keystone Resort’s Ski Tip Lodge introduces Jordan Alley as the establishment’s new executive chef. Alley, a 2009 graduate of Colorado Mountain College and a former Ski Tip Lodge sous chef, brings 10 years of culinary experience to his new role.
“I’m truly excited to serve as the Ski Tip Lodge’s Executive Chef,” says executive chef Jordan Alley. “This is a homecoming of sorts, as I’ve previously spent time with the Ski Tip where I was able to gain first-hand insight into the award-winning restaurant.
“I look to continue in the tradition of creating a remarkable dining experience for guests while they visit Keystone. The Ski Tip Lodge presents the perfect opportunity for me to continue exploring my passion and joy for the culinary arts.”
Most recently, Alley served as the sous chef with Z-Cuisine in Denver, following time spent as the sous chef of Ski Tip Lodge, chef de partie of Fruition Restaurant in Denver, and chef de partie of Bouchon in Las Vegas. Alley’s experience also includes five years of increasing culinary expertise and responsibility as part of Colorado Mountain College’s apprenticeship program with Keystone Resort.
The Ski Tip Lodge is a former 1800s stagecoach stop that has been transformed into a cozy bed and breakfast. Once the personal home of Keystone Resort’s founders, Max and Edna Dercum, the Ski Tip Lodge’s four-course dinner menu is rotated daily and consistently receives high reviews regarding its innovative entrees and attentive service.
The Ski Tip Lodge features a summer full of culinary events, including Summer Après every day from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., Sunshine and Wine tastings (July 12; August 2, 30; September 13) and Wine Dinners (July 20; August 21; September 18).
