Dinner at the Yurt

Paypal Link For Payment

Fridays we typically have a nice dinner; people have gone to Django's, for example. In 2012, we added a catered dinner at the Magic Meadows Yurt.  Here are the details for that event:

You ski or snowshoe about 1/4 mile to the Yurt, which has a fire and kitchen and everything; it's quite comfortable.

The Nordic Center rents cross-country skis and snowshoes (neither is very expensive) and if you need to leave early the next morning I can return your skis for you. Some people might choose to do additional night skiing after dinner but I suspect most folks will just go out to the yurt and back.

The trail is wide and groomed and clearly marked and I think they might even put up torches for us on the way back (but always good to have a flashlight anyway).

We'll be having a catered meal which will cost 60$/person if we provide our own beer and wine, or 70$/person if we decide to let the caterer do it -- we need to vote to decide which way to go (see form below).

Here's the menu:
  • Hors d’oeuvres beginning at 6:45
  • Garlic Rubbed toast with Goat cheese, pesto, sundried tomatoes, pine nuts and extra virgin olive oil.
  • Fresh Salad- Mixed baby greens with Stilton blue cheese candied pecans and dried cranberries drizzled with a light vinaigrette.
  • Soup- Tomato roasted red pepper bisque, served piping hot.
  • Main Entrée- Seasoned and seared beef tenderloin roasted to medium rare and sliced and topped with a shallot port reduction. Creamy potatoes au gratin and green beans accompany this dish.
  • Dessert- Josephine’s famous Tira Misu,
  • Coffee- served with ½ and ½ and sugar

Putting in to the ski trail

The map below shows the route and the options. We'll be going in groups with experienced people so you'll be in good hands but it always helps to have the information.

The Nordic Center suggests that we start at the Gronk, because the trail from there is flat, even though it's longer. The Alien Shack is closer but there's a hill. There is parking near both.

You can rent skis, boots and poles for $21.90. You can rent snowshoes without boots for $16, and with boots for $20. The Nordic Center closes at 5 pm but would be grateful if you come in earlier in the day.

If you are leaving on Saturday before the Nordic Center opens, you can leave the equipment with me (Bruce) and I'll return it for you.
