There’s nothing better than spending an entire day shredding perfect powder. So when lunchtime rolls around and stomachs starts grumbling, the last thing gluten-free skiers or snowboarders want to stress about is what they’re going to find to eat on the mountain. While some resorts like Breckenridge sell labeled, gluten-free snacks, most lodges don’t offer gluten-free alternatives. And even if you aren’t leading a gluten-free lifestyle, the food sold at ski lodges is often very expensive, so the best option is to pack your own snacks.
Stumped on which gluten-free snacks to pack? Check out our list:
- Nuts and seeds—they’re naturally gluten-free!
- Home-made trail mix
- Dried fruit
- Gluten-free pretzels or crackers with gluten-free peanut butter. We love Glutino’s Pretzel Snack Packs with Justin’s Honey Peanut Butter.
- Energy bars are easy to stash in your pocket for a quick snack. Larabars are gluten, dairy, and soy-free. LUNA produces a line of gluten-free protein bars. Other gluten-free options include BumbleBar’s Organic Energy Bars and KIND Fruit & Nut Bars.
- New Planet Beer, of course! Find out whether the ski resort your visiting serves NPB in its lodges using our Beer Locator.
