Lone Mountain Ranch’s Sleigh Ride Dinner
Since Lone Mountain Ranch’s legendary Sleigh Ride Dinner started up in 1975, not much has changed, because it’s always been perfect. The experience begins when you leave the ranch by way of horse-drawn sleigh on a journey down a snowy trail, where the quiet serenity of the woods dominates the atmosphere. When you arrive at the oil lantern-lit North Fork Cabin, you’ll be greeted in true Montana fashion by a cowboy musician, who will provide you with stories and songs for the night as you feast on a family-style prime rib dinner. Over the years, this dining experience has become an annual tradition for many and continues to enthrall newcomers every season. Make a Reservation: www.lonemountainranch.com
