Snowcat Dinner Excursion

A handcrafted five course dining experience at 9,000 feet.  

Back by popular demand! Enjoy this rare opportunity for spectacular views and a unique mountaintop culinary experience by booking a Snowcat Dinner Excursion. Guests will enjoy views of the alpenglow over the Needles Mountains from an enclosed snowcat as it ascends the trails on the way to a five course meal. The only guests in the restaurant will be those who arrive by snowcat, providing an intimate and exciting feel — plus our Executive Chef will create entrees that are sure to impress even the most decadent diners.

The dinner begins with mulled wine or champagne while guests are allowed time to socialize and select their seats. Guests will then savor a sophisticated five course tasting menu, complete with beverage pairings from our wine or beer partners.

How It Works 

Guests meet at the main Purgatory Ticket Office no later than 4:30 pm to pick up their tickets and will then be directed towards the Purgatory “Beach” area in front of Purgy’s Restaurant. Guests will see the snowcats pull up to the “Beach” area between 4:30p and 4:45p. Please allow the snowcats plenty of room to park and do not begin boarding until your operator has checked your ticket and given you permission to board. The excursion will depart at 5:00 pm and return around 9:00 pm.
