Your evening begins with check-in at the Snowcrest Building at Big Sky Resort’s Mountain Village at 6:30pm. Once everyone is accounted for, our snowcats, Rosie and Ginger, will transport you on a scenic 15-minute ride to our secluded yurt. Upon arrival, you’ll be welcomed by the cozy ambiance of the yurt, complete with soft lighting and a crackling wood stove. Live acoustic guitar music sets the mood as you settle in for a memorable dining experience.

The dinner bell rings, signaling the start of your culinary journey. Begin with a hearty baked French onion soup and warm bread, followed by a tender filet mignon with peppercorn sauce, garlic mashed potatoes, and fresh sautéed veggies. The meal concludes with a delightful Toblerone chocolate fondue, served with fruit and pound cake.

The relaxed atmosphere allows for stargazing and socializing by the fire, making for a truly enchanting evening. The event typically lasts three-and-a-half hours, with a return ride to the Summit Hotel between 9:30 and 10pm.
