A couple of years back we wrote about folks building ski resorts in their own backyards. Now you can put those people to shame by buying your own snowcat. For a mere ten grand you'll be able to cart six friends deep into the backcountry with your very own 1962 Snow Trac — on Craigslist now! (Onboard kegerator not included.)
Board a snowcat for a dining experience that’s far more than just another meal.
The Viking Dinner Yurt, The Canyons, Park City, Utah Music from a baby grand is the first hint of what awaits at this 32-person yurt set at 8,000 feet, above Red Pine Lodge. Upon delivery via a snowcat-pulled sleigh, guests dine by candlelight on Scandinavian fare. Five-course menus change monthly. This month’s includes roasted fennel broth with Norwegian meat dumplings, pan-roasted organic chicken and Meyer lemon tarts. http://thevikingyurt.com; 435-615-9878
Deer Valley is a feast for the senses¿and you're the guest of honor. Start the day by enjoying 1,100 acres of primarily cruising terrain, perfectly groomed by a fleet of snowcats that smooth, buff and roll all night.
