"We change the grill station offerings each event but always aim to serve a fish and a hearty protein," says chef Butchart. "Next it could be whole fried fish — you just never can tell!"
While all this food might seem indulgent, the beauty of the full-moon dinners is in order to enjoy this culinary goodness, you have to self-power your way to the top of Buttermilk. No chairlifts are spinning, it's all about earning those calories! The 1,800-vertical-foot journey can start at either main Buttermilk, Tiehack or West Buttermilk (if you’re comfortable with non-groomed terrain) and the uphill route is marked by lights every few hundred yards to help ensure you're on the right path.
