Bearclaw Supperclub may be the culinary highlight of our year. It combines all of our favorite things: Sundance, hiking, sunset, down jackets for chilly evening breezes, amazing views, amazing food that we had zero involvement with preparing.
And, of course, we try to keep it classy. You can tell by this well-timed mid-sneeze selfie.
Being keen believers in earning one's moscow mule, we started our
evening by hiking from the second stop of Ray's lift to the top of back
mountain. It's one of my very favorite hikes... probably because I only do it when I have the Bearclaw Supperclub to look forward to! Plus, I always get to hike to the summit with my very favorite hiking buddy.
We were treated to a fab view of a deer family this year. See them hiding in the shadows, posed perfectly for us all in a line? Yeah, that's how the wildlife behaves at Sundance - always photogenic.
And before we knew it, we had arrived! (this is not actually true, we sweated and gasped up the whole ascent, but we'll pretend that we arrived swiftly, looking glamorous and totally-not-out-of-breath)
Regardless of our state at the summit, climbing a mountain to find a local honeycomb, charcuterie, and extraordinary little finger foods at the top will get you up any slope!
And as if the appetizers alone weren't enough, check out the dinner view! And, yes, the food lived up to the view, as did the wine and dazzling company.
Bearclaw Supperclub never disappoints - add it to your must-attend list of outings next summer and save us a seat!
