Le Petit Fromage: Nordic skiing & fondue

Evening nordic skiing cross country ski excursion & candlelit fondue dinner!

LePetit Fromage is an evening cross country ski excursion and fondue dinner experience at the Black Jack Cross Country Ski trails located adjacent to Red Resort. The evening begins with brief ski instruction followed by a gentle 2 km (1.25 mi) ski on groomed trails to a remote cabin. The charm of the blazing wood stove and candlelit table create a warm and inviting ambiance. Inside the table is set for a three-course classic authentic French fondue dinner. Your hostess will guide you through this extraordinary dining experience.

Fondue is steeped in tradition and one of our last communal dining experiences.
