Moonlight Dinners, 2022-23 season
Location: Black Mountain Lodge
Arapahoe Basin's annual Moonlight Dinner Series highlights cuisines from mountain regions of the world. These dining experiences are held at the beautiful Black Mountain Lodge at mid-mountain with views of the Continental Divide. Experiences begin and end with a ride under the stars on the Black Mountain Express Lift. Each dinner features a multi-course, buffet-style dining experience, live entertainment, and specially chosen drinks.
Food and Beverage Director & Executive Chef Christopher Rybak, Chef Alison Beazley, and their team bring extensive culinary experience and passions for creativity to these unique dining events. Chef Beazley is a Summit County native and comes to A-Basin immediately following several years at the venerable French Laundry, a three Michelin Star restaurant. Her menus, reimagined for the 2022-23 winter season, will take your palate on a journey around the world--sourcing the ingredients, spices, and recipes that make for a memorable night. Come learn about and enjoy global cuisine.

Important Reservation Info
Reservations are required and open for each dinner one month, or more, in advance. Reservations MUST be made online; you cannot call to make a reservation.
When they go live, you will be able to reserve Moonlight Dinners here, on our store. If you don't see them, they are not available.
You can book up to 6 spots with one reservation. If you have more than 6 who want to sit together, please make all of your reservations and then give us a call to discuss seating arrangements. If, for example, you have two couples that want to eat together, your best bet is to put all 4 people on the same reservation. Moonlight Dinners are family-style seating on large picnic tables, not reserved tables. We will do our best to accommodate you but cannot guarantee that very large parties can all sit together.
