4 delicious ski trip food ideas

Ski trips can be a great family bonding experience, couples retreat, or even a solo activity. There’s nothing better than hitting the slopes when they’re covered in fresh powder. After a long day of rigorous skiing, curling up with a nice hot meal in a ski chalet is a great treat.

While you peel off your layers of ski gear, here are some great ski food meal ideas to warm up to.

1. Cheese fondue

Was there ever a recipe more perfect for a ski chalet than fondue? No, of course not. Snuggle up with some hot, oozing, melted cheese, and things to dip into it. Some great cheese fondue pairs include bread, boiled potatoes, sliced apple, broccoli, or blanched asparagus. Change it up by experimenting with a variety of cheeses – this meal is worth buying a fondue set for! If you’re feeling experimental, try adding some beer to your cheese fondue.

2. Grilled cheese kicked up a notch

Grilled cheese sandwiches don’t have to be boring. Play with the ingredients and have fun with it. Caramelize your onions in beer, since the alcohol will evaporate in the cooking process, and brown ale will help bring out the sweetness in the onions. Try adding in spinach and pesto, or why not mac ‘n cheese and pulled pork?

3. Potato, cheddar, and chive soup

A hearty soup is a great way to warm up in the winter. They’re easy to make, delicious, and only get better every day as the flavours marry together. Cheese, potato, and chives are a great flavour combination, and the ingredients are readily available in the winter. Kids love it, too. It’s like a loaded baked potato in a bowl. Soups with homemade stock are ideal, but if that’s not possible, a salt-free broth will also work. Serve it up with a hunk of crusty bread, and you’re golden.

4. Cinnamon apple cobbler

The ultimate comfort food, apple cobbler is a North American family favourite and is made with ingredients that are available year round. Switch up a classic recipe by making it in a cinnamon bun, with cinnamon filling sprinkled onto a rolled butter milk biscuit. Who doesn’t love apple cobbler?

With these four ski trip recipe ideas, you and your family will keep warm and fend off both frostbite AND hunger! Bon appetit!
