Skiers will be hungry after a long day of skinning. Fill them up with a healthy dose of carbs topped with a hearty meat sauce. Make the sauce ahead of time, and reheat it while you boil the pasta at the hut. If you’re feeling fancy, garlic bread warms easily over the wood stove.
Boxed wine pairs nicely with an Italian dinner, but ditch the box. Just carry the inner bag with you. When the party starts to get rowdy, pass it around and sip straight from the spout. (Don’t forget to give the bag a slap.) Or, French Rabbit or Bandit wine comes in a lightweight, recyclable carton.
