Montana winters are dreamy and full of adventure. Paws Up’s annual WinterFest
culinary weekend is January 25-28th, 2018 featuring James Beard Award nominee Bruce Kalman
and Bravo Top Chef winner Brooke Williamson
. The event is three and a half days of intimate cooking demonstrations, gourmet winter-themed feasts, tastings and more. Guests will enjoy cocktails by Glacier Distilling Company
served at a festive ice bar, fantastic wines by winemaker Ehren Jordan,
live musical performances (see below) and even lessons and matches with the Missoula Curling Club
All of this will be served against a backdrop of incredible snow-covered mountains. Between meals, you’ll get to enjoy horse-drawn sleigh rides, skijoring, snowshoeing and more, plus trunk shows for retail therapy, a host of spa services and, of course, sitting in your own private hot tub under a starlit sky.
On Thursday night, January 25, hear guitarist and singer-songwriter Andrea Harsell
artfully blend bluegrass, country, folk and rock. Her voice has been known to channel the likes of Janis Joplin, Alison Krauss and Alanis Morissette.
On Saturday night, January 27, listen during dinner as guitarist and singer-songwriter John Floridis
fills the air with his bluesy, folk-rock melodies. He’s played with Bruce Cockburn, Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin and Emmylou Harris, among others.
