Just Desserts Eat & Ski


Not a race, just a gorge fest

Event Details

Snow or no snow, “Just Desserts” is good to go!

Join us for a celebration of Enchanted Forest Cross Country Ski & Snowshoe Area and its founders John and Judy Miller of Red River

Because of unprecedented dry weather, this is the first year since the area opened in 1985 that Enchanted Forest has not opened.

Let’s ignore the weather and get together for a party! “Just Desserts” Eat & Ski has been a tradition at Enchanted Forest for over 30 years. The theme is simple: Enchanted Forest puts homemade desserts from local restaurants (and avid bakers) out on a five-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!

For this year’s event — Saturday, February 24, 2018, noon to 2 p.m. — we are waiving entry fees and instead are asking participants to donate whatever they see fit to help Enchanted Forest survive this drought. As with previous years, participants can also “vote” (with cash) for their favorite dessert (or desserts). Voting proceeds will benefit Red River Valley Charter School.

Additionally, this year we will serve complimentary posole, green chile stew and hot drinks (a mainstay of the Christmas Luminaria Tour that had to be canceled this season).
