Arapahoe Basin's annual Moonlight Dinner Series highlights cuisine from mountain regions of the world, all specially sourced and prepared for these legendary dining experiences. Executive Chef Christopher Rybak brings years of culinary experience and a passion for innovation to our Moonlight Dinner Series at Black Mountain Lodge. The classically-trained chef gathers inspiration from across the globe, and puts his own "A-Basin" spin on traditional flavors. "I love holding these Moonlight Dinners because they challenge me to evolve my culinary creativity," said Rybak, who also serves as the Food and Beverage Director for all on-mountain dining options. Held on Saturdays during the full moon cycle, these dinners allow A-Basin guests to experience the mountain in an intimate yet social evening setting, while also enjoying the natural beauty of the outdoors.

 

Please note that because Chef Rybak focuses on sourcing local and sustainable ingredients, Moonlight Dinner menus are subject to change.
