Moonlight Dinners

Arapahoe Basin's annual Moonlight Dinner Series highlights cuisine from mountain regions of the world. 
These dining experiences are held at the beautiful Black Mountain Lodge at mid-mountain, and include a four-course buffet-style dining experience and live entertainment.

Food and Beverage Director Christopher Rybak welcomes Executive Chef Steven Vlass, who brings extensive culinary experience and a passion for creativity to these unique dining events. Chef Vlass will take your palate on a journey around the world, sourcing the ingredients, spices and recipes that make for a memorable night. "These dinners are a night for everyone attending to enjoy and to be educated about global cuisine," said Chef Vlass.
