Sleigh Ride Dinners

Snuggle deep in the blankets as you take an incredible sleigh ride through the beautiful Rocky Mountain countryside. In the evening, it will seem like you can touch the stars as you glide across the Champagne Powder® snow.

Steamboat Sleigh Rides at Haymaker


Dash through the snow as a pair of majestic draft horses pull this snowy 20-person sleigh ride around the Haymaker Golf Course before settling down to delicious three-course dinner with all the trimmings. Appreciate Haymaker like never before as you’re transported via comfortable shuttles to one of Colorado’s premier summer public golf facilities. Enjoy specialty drinks and pre-sleigh appetizers before cozying up under blankets for a 25-minute adventure.

Upon return to your winter clubhouse retreat, dine on a distinctive Colorado menu of prime beef, free range chicken or fresh seafood, followed by coffee and dessert. With two seatings every Wednesday through Sunday evening from mid-December through March, this new winter twist to a Steamboat summer favorite will treat guests to a western experience accentuated with winter elegance. In addition, a private two-person sleigh provides the perfect romantic element for that special occasion.
