“Just Desserts” Eat & Ski has been a tradition at Enchanted Forest for over 35 years. The theme is simple: Enchanted Forest puts homemade desserts from local restaurants (and avid bakers) out on a four-kilometer course and skiers ski or snowshoe out to the different sites and indulge in goodies like Apple-Raisin Bread Pudding with Jack Daniels Sauce, Tiramisu, Fudge, Cinnamon Rolls, ‘Better Than Sex’ Cake, Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie, Wild Blueberry Pie, Key Lime Pie, Coconut Rum Cake (dairy free), Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie, Banana Pudding, Multi-layer Chocolate Buttercream Torte.… and much more!
