Mar 8 @ 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Grab your friends and head to the mountain this winter for a special evening of snowshoeing in the heart of the Cascade Mountains followed by a tasting and dinner with 14 Hands Winery! Guests will get to sample four different wines from 14 Hands and be able to purchase additional glasses of wine from the Bullwheel Bar. A representative from 14 Hands will be present to talk about the four different wines and answer any questions guests may have.

What’s Included?

  • Snowshoes
  • Guided tour
  • Dinner: Family style, paired with the tasting.
  • 4 – 5oz tastings

3:00p.m. Meet your snowshoe guide in the Rental Shop to get geared up.

3:30p.m. Head out for a walk in the snow

5:00p.m. Return gear to rental shop and head to the Bullwheel Restaurant and Bar

5:30p.m. 14 Hands tasting and dinner

Q & A:

Q: What should I bring for snowshoeing?

A: Check the forecast before driving to the mountain to see if it will be snowing or now. We suggest layering and wearing a waterproof layer on top. You can always take layers off while walking if you get too hot and stuff into a backpack. Sturdy hiking boots are also recommended. In your backpack, bring water and snacks for along the hike. Hand warmers are nice to have if you get cold easily. 

 

Q: Can I attend this if I’m not 21 years of age or older?

A: Yes, you just can not participate in the tasting of beer/cider/wine. You will be able to sit with everyone and enjoy dinner.

 

Q: Can I bring my dog on the snowshoe walk?

A: Unfortunately, no. You will be taking a short chairlift ride up to begin your walk and dogs are not permitted on the lifts.
