I have wanted to snowshoe out to the Cookhouse for a couple of years, and finally did to celebrate my 60th birthday with my husband and 15 year old daughter. It was all I imagined and more. We arrived at the Nordic center at 5:00pm to check in. Since the snow on the trail was packed down, we hiked in... More

Ian made our experience amazing from start to finish; we chose to Nordic ski from the initial cabin to the yert and we loved it. The scenery is second to none, the food was INCREDIBLE, we had the elk, pheasant and fish and they were all great, I would recommend the elk as the #1 choice; such a cool experience.... More

My girlfriend and I visited the Tenneessee Pass Cookhouse on a Saturday and we loved it! What a great opportunity for a brief cross country ski or snowshoe into a yurt for a full fixed price dinner. We enjoyed the appetizer of boar sausage, fruit, cheese. The next course was soup or salad. Diners have a choice of four dinners... More

A four course meal is offered with reservations. To start you xc ski or snowshoe about 1 mile to the yurt, have cocktails and then a great meal, then you trek back in the dark with a headlamp. Pretty cool. They provide all equipment you choose. The day we went things where pretty hard pack so we just walked. I... More

This is a great experience but they need to do something about the Johns. Disgusting to say the least. Food was not up to par with previous visits. Warm cookies were over the top and took the attention off the mediocre burger at 18 bucks.

Rather than ski on New Year's Eve, we decided to snowshoe and make reservations here for lunch. We only decided on this three weeks prior, so we were surprised they had an available slot to accommodate two of us for the earlier lunch seating (the later lunch seating was fully booked). We arrived in the parking lot and checked in... More

We arrived at the Nordic Center and the staff was really welcoming and helpful getting us set with gear and on our way. We arrived a short time later after the trek at the cookhouse. Although a little out of breath, the atmosphere was awesome and the yurt looked very warm and welcoming. The apps and soup(corn chowder was exceptional)... More

My best girlfriend and I booked a dinner and the sleep yurts for one night. From the moment we arrived the staff was super friendly and helpful. We snowshoed in to our sleep yurt before dinner and our yurt had a fire already going making it super cozy. Dinner was fantastic, the food was incredible, and the service and staff... More

Stopped here after skiing to grab a drink and watch football. Literally stumbled across one of the most amazing burgers I have had to date. Passing through or are near Leadville?! Stop! Won't be disappointed. Quint place with great service!
