NEW this season is our Snowshoe & Sip Series featuring four different breweries/wineries. Each Snowshoe & Sip event will allow you to explore the beauty of Crystal Mountain and the Cascade Mountains on snowshoes with one of our expert guides before dining and tasting three to four different samples from the respective company. This is a great way to get together for an evening in the snow or a great way to spend time with your loved ones.
We begin our 2+ hour tour by taking a scenic ride up the Gold Hills chairlift where we start our tour through the majestic alpine forest into the Bullion Basin area. As we wind through the alpine we take a few minutes to take in the beautiful views and fuel up with some snacks and water. Once back in the base area, we make our way to the Bullwheel Restaurant and Bar for a family-style dinner and tasting! You must be 21 or older to participate in the tasting, however, you can still attend dinner if you are not over 21 years old.
