Any regular to Panorama will tell you that there’s a healthy dose of foodie-ism here, we ski to eat and eat to ski. It’s ingrained in the culture, just like a love of ski racing, powder filled tree runs and wide open corduroy.
Perched halfway up the mountain, the Elkhorn Cabin is one of my favourite locations. The views are stunning, the historical cabin warm and cozy, but what I come for are the crave worthy baked treats. I can’t even begin to count the many times I’ve skied by and been drawn in by the smell of cookies, fresh from the oven and cooling on trays beside the run.
So while we are all staying home and channelling our inner Martha Stewart, here’s a special recipe courtesy of Nicole & AJ from the Elkhorn Cabin so you can enjoy a bite of Panorama at home. Bon appétit!
