Job DescriptionCompany Description

It's been called Aspen's "finest spot to wine, dine and unwind." The name element 47 pays tribute to silver, the precious metal that first put Aspen on the map, and to the finest silver service cuisine —for breakfast, lunch, après and dinner, 7 days a week. Our team of culinary and wine professionals is one very good reason our hotel has enjoyed the rare Five-Star, Five-Diamond ranking for so long. In 2015, element 47 received its first Five-Star Restaurant Award, the only one among Aspen restaurants. Whether you ski in for lunch, drop in at the bar for a more casual rendezvous, or join us for the most special of occasions, you'll be greeted with warmth, not formality. Job Description
