Our kitchen team is keenly aware of the importance of refuelling after a day in the mountains. Our guests commonly remark on the quality of dining made possible by our three chefs: one focused on breakfast, another on lunch, and yet another concentrated on appetizers and dinner fare.
Led by Chef Greg, since 2010, our kitchen is stocked with a wide variety of house-made items, including sausages and cured meats, breads, and pasta. A love of hearty, imaginative, and exquisite meals leads our kitchen team to source fresh, locally grown, sustainable, and free-range ingredients.
Meals at Crescent Spur are tailored around the ski day. Most start with a cup of freshly ground coffee, followed by a casual family-style breakfast at tables laden with a variety of healthy, hearty foods—to carry skiers through a big morning of skiing.
Around mid-day, we find a nice spot in the wilderness for a picnic. These lunch spots offer spectacular mountain views while guides serve sandwiches, delicious house made soup, goodies, fruit, chocolate, and hot tea. Feeling a little peckish, after skiing? We offer hors d’oeuvres upon guests return to the lodge from the day of skiing, to hold our guests over to the next big meal.
Dinner is a plated service in the communal dining room, which is suited to lively and entertaining evening conversations. Our mains feature AAA Canadian beef, locally raised lamb, Canadian pork, free-range chicken, and sustainable seafood. We then indulge in desserts including cheesecake, tortes, pie, and crème brûlée, before retiring to the lounge for a nightcap.
“After nine trips, Crescent Spur continues to amaze me in every way- skiing, terrain, pilot, guides, staff, lodge experience, food.”
Over the past two decades, we’ve met many diverse skiers and snowboarders—a number of whom have had special dietary requirements. These guests have made some fun for our kitchen team, as Chef Greg and his colleagues enjoy the opportunity to create nourishing and exciting cuisine within certain restrictions.
