Digest the beauty of twilight like never before while meandering through snow-covered trees and trails on foot. Gathering with the group at the halfway point bonfire, complete with hot toddies and warm cocoa, is sure to leave a lasting impression. Stomp the rest of the way down Cold Springs before arriving at your dinner destination, Stein Eriksen’s. Snowshoers will sit down to a three-course meal paired with live entertainment to complete the this fun dining adventure.

The Menu: Fondue Experience

  • First Course: Mixed Greens, Grape Tomatoes, Shaved Red Onion Champagne Vinaigrette
  • Second Course: Cheese Fondue- Appenzeller, Emmental, Gruyere, Reisling, Crusty Ciabatta
