Enjoy one of the most scenic meals around during Silver Mountain’s annual Ride & Dine dinner series, returning this week and continuing every Friday through Labor Day. Tickets include a gondola ride up the mountain for live music (5-8 pm) and a barbecue dinner served atop the mountain. On the menu: huckleberry barbecue ribs, beef, salmon or chicken; a variety of sides and a kids menu. Dessert, beer, wine and cocktails can be purchased. While the lure of huckleberry ribs is a reason to go, don’t forget that this is the longest gondola in the U.S. at 3.1 miles, offering some stunning mountain views on the way up and down. For more adventurous guests, there’s a ticket option to bring your mountain bike to ride back down on mountainside trails after the meal.
June 28-Aug. 30, Fridays from 2-8 pm • $25.95-$50.95 • Silver Mountain Resort • 610 Bunker Ave., Kellogg • silvermt.com • 866-344-2675
