In Vermont, slope-to-table dining is taking off

LUDLOW, Vt. — As we stood by the fire at the base of Okemo Mountain, a spotlight emerged from above. Like a ship plowing through a foggy evening our snow limo heaved out of the darkness. Somewhere up on the mountain, a five-course tasting dinner awaited.

Climbing aboard the cushy snowcat, 16 of us departed for Epic. The mountain’s daytime restaurant transforms into an intimate dining room on Saturday nights. The nocturnal ride up trails and through tunnels on a tricked-out groomer took a mere 10 minutes, but the transition from one world to another was magical, punctuated with headlight glimpses of frozen creeks and snow-draped trees.
