Why Snowmass Is a Year-Round Must for Every Family’s Bucket List

Article by Shelley Massey

With nearly a hundred miles of bike and equestrian trails, gold-medal rafting and fishing rivers, an abundance of fresh and healthy restaurants that welcome the kiddos, and a brand-new Snowmass Village Base Area, we think Snowmass is a must for active families.

...

Calling all picky eaters! Dining options in Snowmass are wide and deep, but they all have one thing in common: they're fresh.... Don't miss...crepe pops at The Crepe Shack.

The Crepe Shack, Snowmass in the New York Times

From the New York Times “Heads Up” - March 2019

Developers hope to keep travelers entertained enough to stay in their own newly expanded ski town rather than head to its nearby, more glamorous rival.

Dining options are still limited at Snowmass, though improving. The Crepe Shack by Mawa’s Kitchen, the third of a mini-chain of restaurants run by Mawa and Daniel McQueen, recently opened next to the base village ice rink, offering hearty crepes that are more like sandwich substitutes than knife-and-fork desserts with fillings like chicken and pesto ($12.95) and a few luxe options including smoked salmon and caviar ($120).

“That’s my American heritage,” said Mawa McQueen, an ebullient native of the Ivory Coast who grew up in France. “I think a crepe is like a taco.”

The Tartine that Killed Instagram

You're a foodie just like us, when your headed to a new place you email all your foodie friends asking for the best restaurant recommendations and what to order at each restaurant.  We get it, we do the same thing, traveling and food go hand in hand. This blog is dedicated to all you foodies, we are going to share our most popular summer favorites.  

1. When food blogger @MDoughw_Eats posts your Saturday Express Lunch, the Prosciutto & Fig Tartine, and it gets reposted by Food & Wine and goes viral it's probably pretty good!  Toasted 9 grain bread, locally sourced Avalanche Goat Cheese, roasted mission figs and crispy prosciutto. Trust Food & Wine, it's as good as it looks.

2.  Mawa's Green Crepe, this is a local favorite.  The roaring fork valley is a healthy community, many of our patrons are vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free etc.  Mawa's Green Crepe is filled with avocado, spinach, basil pesto and mozzarella. Vegetables are locally sourced from local farms, it's light and fresh and the flavors will entice you to eat green more often.  This can also be served gluten-free, just say Buckwheat crepe please.  

3.  Rainbow Quinoa & Arugula Salad, it's summer and we all love a great salad.  This one is great without meat but can also be added or it can be made vegan.  The homemade apple and honey lemon vinaigrette seals the deal.  Enjoy!

4. Healthy Mexican, is there such a thing?  Skip the tortilla and sub out the rice for quinoa and you have a delicious, low carb Pork Carnitas Bowl.  The slow roasted pork with the mango salsa is the perfect combo of sweet and salty.

5.  Peaches and Cream Crepe. Not all dessert is sinful, well not to us when there is fruit involved.  We think this picture describes it better than words and it's only offered for a limited time while Palisade peaches are in season so you better rush in.
