Full Moon – Backcountry – Dinner Tour

Unlike any other experience in Steamboat Springs, our moonlight dinner tour is a unique combination of powder skiing and riding during the full moon, our cozy cabin and a delicious 3-course dinner with your best friends and family.

We ski and ride prior to dinner and will typically get in 2 – 3 runs. We ski and ride no matter the weather, if the moon is out or not. The focus of our efforts are in the open glades and bowl like terrain that presides near our mid-mountain cabin. This trip is offered in February and March only and is typically only run during the days leading up to and the day of the full moon of. Call if your preferred date is not in or around a full moon to see if we can accommodate your request. 

Booking a full moon dinner tour is only done by reserving the entire private cat. Invite your favorite friends and enjoy this amazing activity together. We’ve had many birthday celebrations, family functions and even weddings on during these tours. It’s a very unique experience and one that really sets the ton for a special event or occasion.
