New Year's Eve Sleigh Ride Dinner

Join us for our annual New Year’s Eve Gorrono Ranch Sleigh Ride dinner.  A memorable family event, and an annual tradition for our returning guests, Gorrono’s Sleigh Ride dinner is an early evening holiday celebration the whole family will enjoy. (The torchlight parade passes right by the Gorrono decks, while fireworks light the sky!)

Guests are transported by an Open Sleigh pulled behind a snow cat, with amazing views of sunset and holiday lights in Mountain Village below, traveling up a wooded slope bordered by towering evergreens while evening falls. There are 2 sleigh departures from the bottom of Village Express lift by Heritage Plaza in Mountain Village: the first at 5:15pm and the second at 5:45pm. At close of dinner, sleighs depart Gorrono Ranch at 8:30pm and 9:00pm. 

Guests should dress warmly, including hats, scarves, gloves and snow boots! The sleigh ride is about 15 minutes to historic Gorrono Ranch, a timbered mountain lodge nestled mid-mountain, with outdoor decks that are perfect for star-gazing, or watching the festive lights of Mountain Village below.

Adult Guests are welcomed with a glass of prosecco, and invited inside with their families to enjoy passed hors d’oeuvres as they warm up by the roaring fire in Gorrono Ranch’s huge stone fireplace.
