Looking for a unique experience while visiting Crested Butte this winter? How about a destination meal that combines adventure with a gourmet touch? Treat your love to something different than the usual 'night out on the town' for dinner. Or, take those kiddos on an experience they will remember for a lifetime.
At Crested Butte, there are options such as a Nordic Yurt Dinner where you can snowshoe or cross country ski under the beautiful night ski into a cozy yurt that is tucked away in the woods. The trail is a relatively easy, 1-mile groomed track that any level can participate in. Usually lasting about an hour, you will arrive at a yurt where an all-inclusive 5 course meal awaits. Grab a delicious hot adult beverage and cozy up next to the fire. The culinary fare is so good it will knock off those toasty socks! The wine, beer and specialty cocktails from Montanya Distillery add to the culinary creation. There is even live music to enjoy the mountain ambiance. It is a night your loved ones won't forget.
Or, maybe you are looking for a western experience on horseback with the mountain sunset in the background. Going for a horseback ride or a sleigh ride will make you feel like you've been transported back to the Old West. Take an hour-long ride on horseback or on a pulled sleigh. At Fantasy Ranch Horseback Adventures, they offer winter rides all throughout the winter to help provide that western horseback experience. Half-way through the ride, people can warm up by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa. Then, after the relaxing break, hop back on the horse or sleigh and continue meandering through the countryside of Crested Butte that has you in awe with the amazing mountain backdrop. Be sure to make a reservation, as spots can fill up quick. Call Fantasy Ranch Horseback Adventures at (970) 349-5425.
