Should have been unforgettable by the hype but was really very average. Starter soup was warm only, Quail was awful. Main beef average and had only 2 bottles of raise in stock !!! This was $250 dollars a head ...... not worth it ...

Fantastic experience starting with Eagle Bahn Gondola ride, into a waiting Snow Cat, to arriving at Game Creek Club. Book before sunset, then be sure to go out on deck to get some pictures. Excellent food, service, presentation and wine list.

I was here with my friends this weekend. We loved the journey up in the comfortable cat from Eagle Bahn gondola. Food was delicious, and loved the coursed - out, gracious service. It's a splurge but worth it.

The first thing is if you ask they will let a couple ride in the front of the snow cat it makes the experience a 12 instead of a 10. The food is beyond fabulous.

You can hike in summer or go by 4 wheel drive shuttle. It is quite a long distance at the back of the mountain, and if reasonably fit, should take 2.5 to 3 hours. Hiking would not be advised in winter and guests to the... More
