PREPARE YOURSELF FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE EVENING
…OF SINFUL DECADENCE AND SNOW PLAY
Castle Mountain Resort’s Full Moon Snowshoe & Fine Dining Experience debuted in the 2017-2018 season, to rave reviews. Each of our fine dining experiences are truly unique; be it the season, the menu, or subtle surprises along way. We make each and every fine dining experience a memorable event making your taste buds crave more.
Whether you are a foodie, an adventurer, or just appreciate the romance of fine dining in the mountains, we welcome you to join us for this Castle Mountain Resort Signature Experience.
What to Expect
Our experience first takes us on a scenic chairlift ride, via the Huckleberry Chairlift, just as our last skiers and snowboarders board the lift for their last run of the day. When at the top, we’ll pause to take in the beauty and magnificence of the Westcastle Valley before starting our way down the mountain. Since the majority of this route is downhill, this one is easy to moderate with no snowshoeing experience required to participate. This is a fully guided experience, which ensures a safe and informative journey.
After about 2.5 hours outside, we’ll find ourselves back in the base area where a short break is built in to allow guests to freshen up and/or change their clothing. This is followed by what some may consider to be the main event; the food!

Frequently Asked Questions
How many spots per event are available?
Only 30 spots per event are available, with 10 spots allocated to each staggered check-in time (3:00 PM, 3:15, PM, & 3:30 PM).
Don’t delay and book now!
What's your cancellation policy?
Cancellations made 7 days prior to the event or greater will result in a 100% refund. Cancellations made within 7 days are not permitted although you may elect to change the name of an attendee by informing us, in writing (email).
What should I wear / bring?
You will be outdoors for a period of approximately 2.5 hours total so it’s best to dress for the weather. While you will be moving, keep in mind you’ll be moving downhill so we wouldn’t exactly call this activity strenuous. Dressing in layers, with extra layers, face coverings, gloves, hand warmers, etc. is highly encouraged.
If you’re prone to being cold, throw a small pack on your back with these items in addition to a hot beverage in a thermos! Bringing water along for the snowshoe is also a good idea.
Dress code for the dinner portion is casual and the food will be anything but!
Can I bring my own snowshoes?
Definitely! You’re welcome to bring your own snowshoes if you have them. Snowshoes are available for rent as well which will result in an additional charge of $15 + GST.
Will we be snowshoeing in the dark?
Depending on the time of year, it is possible! For our January edition, we will be spending a portion of the snowshoe in the dark. In February we should arrive back in the base area at dusk and in March it will still be daylight until dinner.
If you have a headlamp, we encourage you to bring it. Otherwise, a limited number of headlamps are available for use at no additional charge.
