Dinner Experience

Great Food and Lots of Fun!
Tripadvisor.com: 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2015

Located at Big Sky Resort, The Montana Dinner Yurt offers an intimate and unique backcountry dining experience you will not soon forget.  Nestled in the woods on the flanks of Lone Peak, our warm and cozy candlelit dinner yurt is accessed by snowcat and serves an indulging and savory meal in a casually elegant atmosphere. 

Your evening begins at the meeting area upstairs in the Snowcrest Building at Big Sky Resort's Mountain Village. After checking in by 6:30 p.m., guests board Dolly and Ginger, our enclosed passenger snowcats, for a fun and jovial fifteen-minute ride through the picturesque forest to our private backcountry location. 

Upon arrival to the yurt, a torch-lit sledding run and campfire lights up the scene outside, while inside candles flicker and the wood stove crackles, keeping the yurt toasty warm.  Long tables covered with linens and candles give the opportunity to socialize, while our talented musicians play acoustic guitar, setting the mood for the evening. 

When the dinner bell rings, an exquisite dinner is served in courses, starting with hearty baked French onion soup and warm bread, followed by a tender filet mignon with peppercorn sauce (most say it cuts with a spoon!), garlic mashed potatoes, and fresh sautéed veggies, and finishes with warm Toblerone chocolate fondue with fruit and pound cake for dessert.  The accommodating staff and relaxed atmosphere of the Dinner Yurt allows guests time for sledding, stargazing, and socializing by the fire, and will normally last three-and-a-half hours.  A return ride back to the Summit Hotel ends your evening around 9:45pm.

Location

The Montana Dinner Yurt is located on the mountain at Big Sky Resort. Parking is available at the base of Big Sky in the Mountain Village. Check-in is located upstairs in the Snowcrest Building near the Snowsports School at 6:30 sharp.

Menu

Our chef has perfected a delicious three-course meal cooked in our kitchen tent located adjacent to the yurt.  The exquisite dinner is served in courses and starts with a hearty baked French onion soup with fresh warm bread, followed by our main course consisting of a tender filet mignon with peppercorn sauce (some say it cuts with a spoon!), garlic mashed potatoes, and sautéed veggies (main course served family-style), and finishes with warm Toblerone chocolate fondue with fresh fruit and pound cake for dessert.

We are happy to provide a vegetarian substitute or wild caught Alaskan salmon filet in lieu of the beef tenderloin filet with prior notice.

A kids menu is also available offering chicken tenders and fries, buttered pasta, and a cheeseburger or local wagyu beef burger with fries.

*Advance notice for seafood, vegetarian or child plates is required at the time of booking.

Refreshments include hot chocolate, hot apple cider, coffee, and a variety of select teas and sodas.

Although alcohol is not provided or available for purchase, please feel free to bring your own.  If you choose to bring alcohol, it is at your own risk and you must be 21 or older to drink.  We are happy to provide wine openers and ice.

What To Bring

Dress: Dress warm! We recommend layering up-- the yurt is toasty but the snowcat ride and sledding hill require layers.

Alcohol: Once again, though we do not provide alcohol for purchase, please feel free to bring your own.
