In case you have not eaten................

Powder Skiing at Chatter Creek
Chef Brett Kryskow and baker Tara Atkinson show off the fine fare that is the norm at Chatter Creek's Vertebrae Lodge. Meals are generous and of a high quality.

The good eating at Vertebrae Lodge starts each day at 7:30 in the morning with fresh fruit, cereal, and a hearty hot buffet breakfast.  During the day, between runs, guests browse on sandwiches, wraps, cakes, cookies and drinks as they ride the snowcats.  At the end of the day, guests are greeted back at Vertebrae Lodge with home made snacks or warm soup.  Dinner follows about two hours later.   An extensive choice of wines and beers are available from the well-stocked bar. 

Vegetarians and folks with special diets are well looked after by the kitchen staff.  People challenged by an expanding girth have to ski very hard to maintain the status quo while at Chatter Creek.

Our thanks to professional photographer Mark Gallup for the photo of Brett and Tara.  Mark also gives us a peek at the Vertebrae Lodge dining hall in action.

Chatter Creek boasts a succession of fine chefs.  Before Brett, in Vertebrae Lodge's first year of operation, chef Chris Duijts, owner of Golden's well known Kicking Horse Grill,  while on a four month sabbatical,  set a high standard for Chatter Creek, one that Brett and Tara have continued and advanced.
