Magic Meadows Yurt Dinners

Magic Meadows Yurt Dinners

When the full moon rises, the Magic Meadows turn into a luminescent wonderland, with our back-country yurt nestled right in the middle.  There, you can enjoy one of our gourmet yurt dinners; a five course meal in a spectacular setting.

Recently featured in Outside Magazine, “It’s like going back to a 19th century, horse-drawn carriage era when people arrived at gatherings on a sleigh or by ski. It pulls you back to the traditional Nordic culture.”

  • Getting to the Yurt

    The trail to the yurt is about a mile and is mostly level with a few rolling hills, taking about 30 minutes for beginner skiers and 15 minutes for skiers with a bit of experience.  If you’re new to skiing, we suggest snowshoeing out there.  All of the intersections on the trail to the yurt are lit with tiki torches so route finding is easier.  We do recommend all guests bring a headlamp or flashlight.  Feel free to stop by the Nordic Center ahead of time to pick up a map.
