Waterville Valley, NH -- Waterville Valley is one of the first Dark Sky communities in New England and offers the best way to celebrate the thousand of stars that glimmer over the resort town with an evening dinner event, Starry Nights at Sunnyside Timberlodge.
Starry Nights offers gourmet dining to an acoustic beat while nestled mountainside around a fire inside the Sunnyside Timberlodge. Guests will enjoy the stars as they ride up the Valley Run Quad then ski or ride to the Sunnyside Timberlodge along a torch lit trail. Upon arrival at the lodge, trade out ski and snowboard boots for cozy souvenir socks and warm-up fireside with appetizers, wine and beer while chatting with friends and listening to a local musician. Then take in a gourmet meal of herb-crusted tenderloin, lobster ravioli and cumin dusted swordfish served along sides of oven roasted vegetables and seafood pasta. The night will culminate with a Torchlight Parade by skiing or riding down the Valley Run trail under the stars.
The first Starry Nights of the season will be held on December 28, 2013. The event is all-inclusive; beer, wine and meal, and tickets are $100 plus tax per person. This event is open to ages 16+. Space is limited and reservations are required by calling Therese at 603-236-8311 ext. 3000 or 1-800-468-2553. Additional dates for Starry Nights are January 18, 2014 and February 22, 2014.
