Crested Butte Sleighride Dinner Uley’s Cabin
Crested Butte Sleighride Dinner Uley’s Cabin is fun! You will enjoy a fun family adventure or romantic sleigh ride and dinner at Uley’s Cabin in Mt. Crested Butte.
Uley’s Cabin is located mid-mountain and accessible for dinner via a sleigh ride from the base area in a large sleigh pulled by a snowcat.
We recently went with our entire family (plus three boyfriends) on a snowy night in Crested Butte and had a great time.
The Uley’s Cabin Experience
We were instructed to meet at the Tracker’s bar at the Lodge at Mountaineer Square to check-in, and have a drink. Once everyone was accounted for we all were given a blanket for the ride, and we walked to the sleigh around 5:30pm.
The route to get to Uley’s cabin was scenic and fun as we meandered up the mountain in the dark with snowflakes flying…
When we arrived at Uley’s cabin we were a bit chilly. But once inside the cabin there was a roaring fire in the fireplace and plenty of warm smiles from the awaiting staff. The fireplace was a photo opportunity (and my girls don’t miss many of these) so a variety of photos were taken…
The cabin looks rustic on the outside and is decorated inside with many old mining and mountain antiques giving it a charm and coziness – but with a classy feel.
Evidently, Uley was a true Mountain Man. An excerpt below from a brief history piece in the cabin:
“Uley’s Cabin” was built in honor of Uley Sheer. Sheer came to this valley around the 1880’s, living primarily in a 6 x 8 foot cabin on Forest Hill. Like so many mountain men, he hoped his mining claims would lead to a life of prosperity and ease. Instead, they led to a life of hardship and solitude – trapping, cooking in mining camps and eventually selling moonshine”
We were escorted to our table and presented with our name printed on our menu – a very impressive touch.
The food was gourmet and delicious. It was a five-course meal and served with a description of all the items, sauces, and ingredients. All delicious. Service was very good.
After dinner we bundled up and loaded back in the sleigh for our ride down the mountain to the base area. The more direct route took about 10 minutes. We returned to the base around 8:45pm and the snow was still flying…
If you are looking for a fine dining experience, a fun family dinner adventure, or a romantic evening – Uley’s cabin is a good choice.
