Sleigh Ride Dinner at Uley’s Cabin
The Uley’s Sleigh Ride Dinner at Crested Butte Mountain Resort, offered Wednesday's through Sunday's, is both a fine dining experience and a mountain adventure. The beauty of this particular adventure, is it’s accessible to all ages, skiers or not. It allows people that don’t ski or ride the opportunity to see the mountain in winter, an opportunity many non-skiers aren’t afforded.
Cozy blankets await you on the sleigh, and as you chug up the mountain, with the snowy trees illuminated by alpenglow and the headlights of the snowcat, your adventure is reminiscent of being in a snow globe. Your destination is a warmly lit cabin in the woods, built in memory of Uley Sheer, a miner, moonshiner and mountain man to boot, who eked out a life in a small cabin on Forest Hill. Though his residence was a quaint 6 X 8 foot cabin, your digs for the evening is something much finer—a large cozy cabin warmed by a proper fire, trimmed with décor reminiscent of the life Uley lead in the woods.
The entire meal has a French flair, making each course unique, yet familiar. Familiar in that the cuisine is definitively Colorado, evocative of the valley in which you’ll be dining. We invite you to experience something that is both adventurous, yet comforting. A true mountain past time: enjoying an incredible meal with loved ones as the fire crackles inside a cabin tucked into the trees, while the snow comes down. Welcome to Crested Butte.
