The Magic Meadows Yurt Dinner Experience includes trail passes, equipment rentals, guides, a five course dinner, live music, and libations.
On the evening of the dinner, you will meet your guides at the Crested Butte Nordic Center who will help you select the proper cross country ski or snowshoe equipment if needed, and then organize transportation from the Nordic Center to the trailhead which is a quick five minutes away.
In the Backcountry
Once at the trailhead, your guides will escort you to the Yurt but the more adventurous are welcome to head out to the yurt on their own. The trail is about a mile and is mostly level with a few rolling hills, taking about 30-45 minutes for beginner skiers and 15-20 minutes for skiers with a bit of experience. After about a mile, you will see the glow of the warm Yurt which is lit with solar power and heated by a wood burning stove.
At the Yurt
Once in the warmth of the Yurt, your guides will become your servers and offer you specialty cocktails from Crested Butte’s Montanya Distillery, wine selections, specialty non-alcoholic drinks, and beer from Elevation Beer Company. Live music, performed by local musicians accompanies the meal which is prepared by Chef Josephine Kellet of Creative Catering. At the end of the night, your servers will guide you back to the trailhead.
