There’s nothing quite like a winter escape to a mountain cabin. The air is crisp and clean, and the snowy trees are beautiful and picturesque. You can spend your days being active outdoors: skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, sledding, and skating. Or if you prefer being cozy inside, a good book, enticing game, or Netflix marathon are perfect fireside pastimes. I know this because my family has a second home in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Every winter, my sister and I get a group of our favorite people together for a leisurely weekend at the ski house.
While the activities change based on the weather report, one thing that remains consistent is a series of delicious and somewhat decadent meals. After an invigorating day on the slopes, a hearty, satisfying dinner is a must. To inspire you to make the most of the kitchen at your winter lease or mountain Airbnb, here are 10 scrumptious recipes ideal for après-ski noshing.
