Guided Gourmet Hikes at Steamboat

Posted By: The Ski Channel on May 10, 2011 10:36 am

Have you ever heard of a gourmet hike before?  Usually when I go hiking I just bring some light snacks, so the idea of hiking with a gourmet meal sounds like the best idea ever!  Thank you Steamboat!

Steamboat Mountain Resort in Steamboat Springs, CO is offering Guided Gourmet Hikes this summer. Guided by a Steamboat Ambassador, the hike begins at the top of the Gondola then proceeds along the Vista Nature Trail. With plenty of time to stop along the way to snap some pictures, you will be able to have gorgeous views high up on Mt. Werner.  You will also get some time to talk about the mountain and the community. Lunch will be on the 3rd floor deck overlooking the Yampa Valley before.  

Talk about having views galore!

The hike will offered Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays beginning from June 22nd through August 28th. Guests need to make reservations 24 hours in advance. On the day of the hike hikers will meet at the information center at 10:30 AM. Lunch will be served approximately at 12:00 PM and will consist of several entrees, salads and deserts along with wine and soft drinks. On Sunday’s guests will enjoy the fantastic Brunch at Hazie’s after the hike. The Weekends of August 5-6, August 26-28, and September 2-4 will be a special Gourmet Hike in conjunction with the Wine Festival.  Yeah for wine!

You will return from the hike at approximately 1:45-2:00PM. The hike is intermediate/advanced, and about 3 miles roundtrip. It is not recommended for children under 10.
