Remote Fireside Dining
With Frost Beer Works.
One of Sugarbush’s premier offerings, Remote Fireside Dining at Allyn’s Lodge is a unique experience that allows friends and families to celebrate their most memorable occasions. Guests arrive by Lincoln Limo—a snowcat fitted with a twelve-passenger heated cabin—or on foot via a guided hike up the mountain. The fireside dining experience is open to guests of all ages, skiers and non-skiers alike.
Remote Fireside Dining at Allyn’s Lodge
The mountain at dusk feels magical under the 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 Lodge at 4:45 PM; the more relaxed crew arrives by 6 PM, piling into the Lincoln Limo for the twenty-minute haul up the mountain. Both groups arrive at the Lodge around the same time, and gather inside around a roaring fire. The evening begins with a local cheese fondue, a house-made paté, and a complimentary glass of champagne.
Allyn’s Lodge provides an intimate atmosphere lit by candles and a crackling fire. Previously-recognized Vermont Chef of the Year Gerry Nooney and his culinary team craft a simple but beautiful three-course meal with just the right blend of mountain charm and sophistication. The elegant meal can be paired with a selection of wines or Vermont craft beer of your choice (reserve ahead of time), or the house selection. (Wine and beer may be purchased in advance, or a la carte at dinner.) Following the fireside dinner, guests bundle up to either ski or snowboard down a freshly-groomed trail, or descend to the base in the comfort of the heated cabin cat. Skiing down in the quiet of the night heightens the senses, providing an experience many guests return for again and again. (This experience is for advanced skiers and snowboarders only.)The evening concludes with coffee and house-made dessert, served in the warmth of Rumble’s Kitchen. The evening ends around 9:30 PM.
