Ski lodge cafeteria food has a reputation for being as bland as it is overpriced. You can only pay $20 for chicken fingers and fries so many times before wanting to revolt. Still, many longtime powderhounds never thought they’d see the day when their favorite hill embraced the concept of decent meals. But the times are changing.
North American ski resorts are finally learning from the best European ski resorts and putting some thought and effort into the food. For guests who already paid upward of $150 just to be on the mountain, it’s nice to finally have some good options. These resort restaurants are serving up delicious — and creative — meals, so go ahead and leave that PB&J at home the next time you hit the slopes.
