Celebrate The Festival of Lights
With A Guided Snowshoe Tour & Dinner Prepared By A Private Chef
Hanukkah in the mountains is an extraordinary experience, as thousands of stars in the brilliant night sky join you in celebration of the ancient miracle. You’ll especially enjoy a stroll under those celestial lights on a private guided snowshoeing experience. Your guide is able to customize the adventure to your taste, as you explore open valleys and mountain ridge lines, with stunning scenery around every turn. Snowshoes are provided, the terrain is beautifully groomed, and all skill levels are welcome.
Upon your arrival back home, settle in to your seat at the dining table to partake of the culinary wonders of your private chef. Whether you prefer a traditional made-from-scratch Hanukkah meal or you’d like to try wild game or fresh fish from the Rocky’s plentiful slopes and streams, your chef can cater to your desires. This specially curated evening is sure to be a memorable highlight of this year’s festivities.
Celebrate New Year’s Eve
With An Open-Air Sleigh Ride & A Five-Course Meal in a Cozy Cabin
Make reservations for an early dinner at Beano’s Cabin to kick off your New Year’s Eve festivities Nearly a hundred years ago, polish immigrant Frank Bienkowski settled a homestead in the White River National Forest near Beaver Creek. “Beano’s” Cabin was opened to the public in 1986 and has since become an award-winning restaurant known for its fresh, local ingredients and a “breathtaking” wine list.
After a scenic 20-minute open-air sleigh ride up the mountain through gently falling snow, you’ll enjoy a five-course meal in Beano’s romantic lodge setting. We recommend you request a table near the windows to look out on the glistening snow of Grouse Mountain as you dine. If you time it just right, you’ll catch the sun setting through the trees on your sleigh ride back home again, and a hot mug of gourmet cocoa will be ready to greet you when you return.
No matter how or where you plan to celebrate this holiday season, Cuvee will handle all the details. Your only job is to relax and savor the season’s unforgettable moments.
