Save the date for our second Ride + Dine of the summer 2020 season, embarking on a journey from The Little Nell by bike to arrive at a rustic chic setting for an al fresco dinner. This summer's destination is Mad Dog Ranch in Old Snowmass, formerly owned by musicians Glenn Frey and Jimmy Buffet.
Guests should arrive at lower gondola plaza between 3 - 4 pm for registration, introductions, a safety talk and an opportunity to select wines for dinner from our 20,000-bottle cellar, available for purchase through Little Nell Wine Director Chris Dunaway. Each participant is asked to come ready to ride, equipped with a bike, helmet and water bottle. You may also bring a bag with a change of clothes for dinner that will be delivered by our valets. The Little Nell will provide ambassadors to join for the adventure and a support vehicle. If you would like to rent bikes, they are available from Four Mountain Sports, as are eBikes that offer pedal assistance should you prefer this option.
The group departure is at 4 pm and the ride is approximately one to one-and-a-half hours. Descend 15 miles down the Rio Grande Trail alongside breathtaking meadows and the Roaring Fork River. Upon arrival at Mad Dog Ranch, you'll be treated to hors d’oeuvres and sparkling wine, followed by a farm fresh dinner prepared by element 47 chefs, featuring ingredients from ACES’ Rock Bottom Ranch, and other local and regional purveyors. Around 8 pm, The Little Nell will provide return transportation to deliver you and your bike to the hotel.
Pricing and registration will be announced soon. To add your name to the list for more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note: Details are subject to change and will adhere to policies in place due to COVID-19.
