Eating at ski lodges can be very expensive, and many ski lodges only offer fast food.
I usually pack my own wrap or sandwich that I have made beforehand.
If you have a partner and are super hungry, split a soup or chili between the 2 of you and eat your packed lunch. If you're not that hungry, buy a tea to warm up and be a patron.
