We have done the sleigh ride dinners at other resorts, but the food was not what we expected. I wish there was a menu to see in advance before spending $100 + per person. The night we went the entrees were scallops, elk medallions & lamb. Not a single traditional choice on the menu. None of us were excited about any of them - of course you have not choice but order one of them. I even asked if there was chicken or beef that we might choose from, but you would have thought I was asking for McDonalds hamburger. The scallops were ok I guess, had never tried them before so I couldn't compare them to anything, the elk was really red inside and was like chewing a piece of gum. The lamb was probably the best choice but still didn't enjoy that. The other courses were fine, certainly didn't get our money worth.
Sleigh ride was fun and sunset was beautiful !!

Celebrated my wife's birthday with friends with a sleigh ride for dinner at Uley's Cabin.

Atmosphere: Outstanding, the sleigh ride up to the cabin at sunset is beautiful. The cabin is appointed nicely, very comfortable.

Service: Attentive, professional, and friendly. What more do you want?

Food: Fixed price dinner, with choice of entres. Duck, Filet Mignon, and Striped Bass were all excellent. Cocktails and wine may be slightly "pricey".

Conclusion: Delightful evening, with wonderful atmosphere. Difinitely a place to go for the "special occasion".

Magnificent start to the journey - we all got in a sled and were hauled up the mountain. The guide gave us great commentary on the way up. The vegetarian banquet was to live for. They also organised for it to start snowing just as we were leaving. Marvellous
