“Loved this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This was a fun special occasion dinner, we went on New Year's. The sleigh ride was really nice, but they really need more blankets for cold nights. We were all dressed appropriately but it was under 10 degrees with some wind and a couple more blankets for the group would have helped a lot.

Dinner was really excellent, as was the service. The only course we didn't like much was the dessert, which was an apple pie-type thing, but the apples were undercooked and kind of sour. This was a very expensive night but it was worth it for a special night out.

If you do this take to heart their recommendation to dress in layers. It was really hot in the yurt because they had the woodstove really cranking. also keep in mind that the facilities are essentially outhouses. Heated, but still. They also required walking over snow to get to them, this is not a handicapped accessible kind of thing.

“Loved it from beginning to end”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We were skiing on the mountain and decided to try it for lunch after our chair lift mates recommended it. It was so cozy, well priced and excellent. Recommend the hot spiced wine and my husband was happy to try a shot of aquavit.
Went to dinner the next night and that was such an amazing evening. The dinner has fantastic fancy food. The sleigh ride was just beautiful. The piano music was elegant. A very romantic evening we will never forget.

“An experience not just a meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

My husband and I did this a few years ago and it was just a delightfully fun experience. Even though it cold and snowing, the ride up to the Yurt was not really cold. The drivers provide blankets and the people on the back of the plow with you provide the warmth. At one point not too far from the Yurt we had the option of snowshoeing the rest of the way to the Yurt, I was apprehensive since it was dark and snowing, but it ended up being great fun. The food was one dimensional but very good (along with the Grog) - there is the Viking theme after all :) I would like to do it again and would love to have friends do it too. I would not take young children only older hardy children :)

Took my wife for her birthday in February. From the sleighride in the snow to round after round of great food and Drink, we had a splendid memorable evening.

“Viking Yurt @ PCMR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

Nice rest stop in your skiing day for a quick lunch, to enjoy a hot or cold drink or just kick back and enjoy the view. Sit outside the yurt in an Adirondack chair and catch some sun.
