Remote Fireside Dining
One of Sugarbush’s premier offerings, Remote Fireside Dining at Allyn’s Lodge is a unique experience that allows families to celebrate their most memorable occasions. Guests arrive by Lincoln Limo – a heated snowcat fitted with twelve passenger seats or on foot by a guided hike up the mountain. While the fireside dining experience is open to guests of all ages, it tends to cater to older children. We follow airline rules so children 2 and under may ride in adult laps, otherwise they account for a seat and hence, a meal. Please keep in mind the Cat is not fitted with seatbelts. You do not need to be a skier/rider to enjoy this dining experience, though the optional ski/ride down at the end of the event is only for advanced skiers/riders.
Remote Fireside Dining at Allyn's Lodge
The mountain at dusk feels magical under moonlight and a coat of fresh snow. Guests often arrive in two groups: the more adventurous crew sets out for their two-mile guided hike up to Allyn’s leaving at 4:45 PM from the Guest Services Desk located on first floor of Gate House Lodge, and the more relaxed crew arrives by 6:15 PM after meeting their Cat driver at the top of the Super Bravo stairs near the Base Cabins, piling into the Limo for the fifteen-minute haul up the mountain. Both groups arrive at Allyn’s Lodge around the same time and gather inside around a roaring fire. The evening begins when the entire party arrives, and guests are seated to begin their five course meal together. COVID protocols will not allow for the dessert to be served down at Rumble’s Bistro & Bar as is customary, so it will be served with the rest of the meal at Allyn’s Lodge.
Allyn’s Lodge provides an intimate atmosphere lit by candles and a crackling fire. Beer and wine are available for additional purchase. The evening typically lasts from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM. Following the fireside dining, guests bundle up to either ski or ride down a freshly groomed trail led by their Chef, Jim Dinan, or descend to the base in the comfort of the heated Cat. Skiing/riding down in the quiet of the night heightens the senses, providing an experience many guests return for again and again. Complimentary headlamps provided. The weather dependent ski/ride down is for advanced skiers and riders only.
This event requires that a minimum of twelve seats are sold with up to a maximum of eighteen capacity for 2020-2021. COVID protocols only allow members of the same household to travel and sit at the same table together.
