What: Bacon & Egg Breakfast Ramen & Lentil Dahl Poutine

Where: Black Forest Day Lodge

Skiing Black Forest’s playful glades is enough fun to work up a ravaging appetite! Thanks to the incredible ski-in/ski-out convenience of Black Forest Day Lodge, you can grab a bite right on the hill. For breakfast, trying this popular day lodge’s Bacon & Egg Breakfast Ramen Bowl is a must – but act quick, breakfast is only available from 8:30am-10:30am daily. If it’s lunch you’re after, try the Yam Fry & Lentil Dahl Poutine with feta for a healthy twist on the Canadian classic.

What: The BullWheel Burger

Where: The BullWheel

If you’re a burger lover, you need to try the famous BullWheel Burger. It’s a hand-pressed ground steak patty loaded with house-made bacon jam, crispy onion, tomato, lettuce, mild cheddar, and The BullWheel’s signature burger sauce. Yes, that’s right, we said bacon jam – it’s a game changer. We swear it might even improve your form on the hill.

What: Tuna Poke

Where: The Woods

Hands down one of our favorite Après appies on the hill is The Woods Tuna Poke Bowl. Made with B.C. Albacore tuna and topped with peach salsa, avocado, grapefruit ginger dressing, soya-ka­ffir lime emulsion, sesame and crispy wontons - this dish is not only extremely Instagram-worthy, but healthy too! Your body will thank you as much as your taste buds for this oriental-inspired bowl.

This is our personal favourite! 

What: Bacon Breakfast Taco

Where: Globe Café and Tapas bar

When you’re on a ski holiday, tacos aren’t just for Tuesdays. Enjoy one of these zesty tacos any day of the week at Globe Cafe and Tapas Bar – featuring thick-cut house smoked bacon, scrambled or fried eggs, avocado, tomato salsa, pickled cabbage, and jalapeno ketchup. They had us at bacon….
