"Our evening at The Montana Dinner Yurt was the highlight of our Big Sky vacation - we'll never forget the memories and will be back soon!"
B.Mahoney - Pacific Grove, CA
Located at Big Sky Resort, The Montana Dinner Yurt offers an intimate and unique backcountry dining experience you will not soon forget. Nestled in the woods on the flanks of Lone Peak, our warm and cozy candlelit dinner yurt is accessed by snowcat and serves an indulging and savory meal in a casually elegant atmosphere.
Your evening begins at The Montana Dinner Yurt meeting area located on the second floor of Big Sky’s Summit Hotel, just slopeside of the Carabiner Lounge. After checking in by 6:30 p.m., guests board Betsy and Dolly, our heated and enclosed passenger snowcats, for a fun and jovial twenty-minute ride through the picturesque forest to our private backcountry location.
Upon arrival to our yurt, a torch-lit sledding run and roaring bonfire lights up the scene outside, while inside the toasty yurt candles flicker and the wood stove crackles. Long tables covered with linens and candles give the opportunity to socialize, while our talented musicians play acoustic guitar, setting the mood for the evening.
When the dinner bell rings, our exquisite dinner is served in courses and starts with a hearty baked French onion soup with fresh warm bread, followed by a tender filet mignon with peppercorn sauce (most say it cuts with a spoon!), garlic mashed potatoes, and fresh sautéed veggies, and finishes with warm Toblerone chocolate fondue with fresh fruit and pound cake for dessert. The accommodating staff and relaxed atmosphere of the Moonlight Dinner allows guests time for sledding, stargazing, and socializing by the fire, and will normally last three-and-a-half hours. A return ride back to the Summit Hotel ends your memorable evening around 10pm.
