It doesn’t matter if you ride two boards or one, fat or skinny, toboggan or inner tube, nothing compares to schussing down a snowy mountain face. (Yes, yes, we love a white sandy beach, too, but it’s no place for your favorite cashmere sweater.) We know people who don’t even like snow sports, but still love being in the mountains in winter. It’s magical, it’s majestic, and it’s a perfect excuse to put extra marshmallows in your hot cocoa. It’s also miles and miles from your to-do list.
Sure, there’s a touch of risk in a winter weekend getaway. You hope and pray it will dump snow, but not so much that you can’t get where you’re going. And it never hurts to plan ahead, whether you’re flying into Sandy Field, road tripping to Whistler, or riding the Empire Builder into Whitefish. Make peace with the fact that Mother Nature may control the weather, but you control the menu. And we’re here to help you make it remarkable.
If you’ve rented a cabin or a condo slope-side, take advantage of being able to ski right into a well-stocked kitchen. Using a local delivery service to fill the pantry and fridge with a long-weekend’s worth of basics is an easy way to execute like a pro – especially if you put some forethought into what meals you want to make. You might even make room in your suitcase for your favorite cookbook. But rest assured, we have some ideas for you right here.
What’s that expression…go big or go home? We think you’ll see that philosophy reflected in the Ski Weekend Getaway menu we put together. From the Chocolate Old Fashioned to the hearty sides to the specialty cuts of Mishima Reserve Wagyu beef, nobody in your group will be going to bed hungry.
The Tomahawk has become one of our most popular steaks, both because of its amazing richness and its over-the-top visual impact on the plate. (Some have called it “ribeye with a handle.”) If ribeye happens to be your steak of choice, our Thick-cut Ribeye will make you swoon.
Again, you can’t personally order conditions on the hill, but you can order your Mishima Reserve American Wagyu steaks and specify when you want them to be delivered to the front door of your cabin. Wherever you’re going this winter, we hope you have wonderful time with family and friends immersed in the beauty of high-alpine living.
