Went with another couple and loved it all from the ride up the hill (grab a seat facing away from the snow cat on the ride up), to the food, to the uniqueness of it all. Would go again.

We have been going to the Viking Yurt for years and years. It has become one of our family's favorite things about visiting Park City. Although it has become more modern (still a rustic experience) dining experience, it is still an absolutely unique evening. The ride up and back in an open sleigh is nothing short of magical--stunning views that... More

I loved the 30 minute sleigh ride - definitely do this and don't sit in the warmed cab! The food was creative and delicious, the company was wonderful and the overall setting was very romantic. If I'm ever back in Park City, Utah, I would certainly go again.

We stopped in while skiing for a cocktail and sat outside enjoying a fabulous day on the slopes! Great beer choices and very friendly service! We would love to do dinner here sometime when we return,,,, I'm sure it would be fabulous!

Every year when we go out west for a ski trip, we always plan a cozy sleigh ride up a mountain for dinner just for the experience of being out on the mountains at night when the stars are bright. This was our first time in Park City and we weren't sure what to expect with the Viking Yurt. I... More

Upon our arrival our group of 13 found no signs to direct us to the meeting location. We proceeded through mounds of slush to the sleigh and were then directed inside to sign waivers. Again we traversed through the slush. At the meeting site we were greeted by the owner who immediately chastised us for being too late to sign... More

Here are the facts; there are no negative surprises at the yurt. You have to agree to our cancelation policy twice before you can get a booking confirmed. Upon booking you receive a very detailed confirmation letter with perfect directions on how to find the meeting room and how to dress. If a concierge or the person that books the... More

We stopped for a quick bite and found tasty sandwiches and hot cider. Grill Chicken, marinated and topped with Brie, lettuce, red peppers on sourdough bread was light and satisfying. The peanut butter cookie was rich and not too sweet.

One would think that this would be a really touristy evening, guess again. It was a hoot, food was excellent and they really pay attention to dietary needs (let them know when you make your reservation). Unless you are a party of 10, you will share a table - be aware that if your table mates are boring, it will... More

We've been before and were excited to take friends that hadn't. Had a stormy night so our friends that had never seen snow were even more "blown" away. We snuggled under the blankets and sat back to enjoy the views as this huge machine pulls you to the top of a mountain. If you want to experience something totally unique,... More
