Nordic Sleigh Rides

While Santa's reindeers are busy at the North Pole, two purebred belgian draft horses pull the red sleigh for Nordic Sleigh Rides. The sleigh carries between 2 and 20 passengers on a scenic tour of the Swan River Valley. While guests can opt for just a sleigh ride, Nordic Sleigh Rides specializes in putting on dinner and a show. Read on to learn more about these shows:

Mining Camp

Miners flocked to Breckenridge in 1859 in search of gold, and the mining-camp experience gives visitors a taste of what life was like for them. A sleigh full of passengers disembark at the mining-camp dining hall, where they're greeted by ragtime music, hot chocolate, hand-hewn log tables, and antique wood stoves that heat the room. As dinner is prepared, a trapper, mountain man, or dancing girl entertains guests with anecdotes. And just as the gold rush drew all sorts of people, the diners here are equally diverse (although probably covered in less dirt).

Dinner Theater

Three shows play at Nordic Sleigh Rides. In The Mountain Man, the titular character is rendezvousing with fellow trappers who canvassed the area 200 years ago. Before there was a lake at Lake Dillon Reservoir, the area was known as Le Bonte’s Hole, a meeting place for mountain men. The Dance Hall Girl follows Diamond Dixie, a woman who left Georgia to become a dancer in the saloons near the mining camp. The Unsinkable Molly Brown, on the other hand, explores the life of one of Colorado's most famous—and interesting—residents. After her husband became rich from his mining engineering, they lived in Leadville. She earned the nickname "Unsinkable" after she helped evacuate passengers from the Titanic.

Dinner

Both the mining-camp experience and theater shows include dinner. The hearty meal is served on tin plates just like the old miners used, and most of the food is cooked over a wood-burning stove. Options consist of top sirloin steak, 10-ounce barbecue chicken breast, filet of salmon, or a vegetarian lasagna, as well as sides and hot apple pie.
