Winter Sleigh Rides Colorado

Bearcats Cabin

Nestled in the Squaw Creek Valley in Cordillera, 15 minutes west of Beaver Creek, Colorado, Bearcat's Cabin is the original cabin the Bearden family homesteaded during the early 20th century. Thanks to the efforts of the Cordillera Preservation Foundation and Bearcat Stables, the Cabin has been completely restored, and now acts as one of Vail's most historic restaurant settings.

You and your family are invited to tour these historic grounds via Horse and Sleigh while sipping on your favorite beverage. Our knowledgeable team drivers will give you the history of the land and make your journey unforgettable. Bring your camera because you will want to take pictures of these majestic 2000 pound animals.

After your ride, step into a piece of Colorado history as you dine in this historic setting. The cuisine is world class as it is prepared by Executive Chef Collin Smelser of Mirador Restaurant of the Lodge and Spa at Cordillera.
