My favorite brown-bag ski lunch

There is just no way to get a cheap lunch at a ski resort (Okay, at Dave’s Deli at Squaw Valley you can pick up a hard-boiled egg for $1 or a deli sandwich for about $6, but that’s about as good as it gets).

Of course there are exceptions but in general the food is overpriced and not all that good. So I try to allow myself enough time in the morning to pack lunch. The kids can get some fries or a hot cocoa, but on most days that’s where I draw the line.

Anyway, I found a super easy take-along lunch that’s a huge hit with everyone in my house– shout out to my friend Courtney Corda at for the idea. Here’s what I bring: a jar of roasted red peppers, a slab of Boursin cheese spread and a baguette or some crackers.

With fruit, yogurt, and other snacks, it’s the easiest ski-lunch-in-a-pinch that I’ve found.

Have you found any affordable food options at your favorite resort? Or do you have any favorite lunch-on-the-hill options that you recommend? Please share.

      It’s tasty. Not very healthy though!

      • I just went to Mt.Rose a week and half ago. I did great until Jonas took me on the Black Diamonds. I’ll be back on the hill next year.
