      Tennessee Pass Cookhouse

      A mile-long ski, snowshoe, or hike under the stars leads to a warm yurt and a four-course gourmet candlelight dinner. Entrees include Colorado rack of lamb, rainbow trout, grilled elk tenderloin, and oven-roasted pheasant stuffed with wild mushroom and apricot.

      Off-the-grid sleeping yurts are warmed by soapstone woodstoves and down comforters on handcrafted log beds. Breakfast baskets are available. Stays come with a two-day pass to 27 kilometers of groomed trails overlooking the snowcapped Sawatch range. Cross-country skis, skate skis, fat bikes, and snowshoes are available to rent.
