The first night at Jackson Gore Inn, we dined at Coleman Brook Tavern, just off the lobby bar. The kids grabbed yummy nachos and fish and chips, while mom and dad dug into the baked brie, a Caesar salad, and sesame-encrusted ahi tuna. Prices were reasonable, with the ahi tuna costing $25, and everyone was pleasantly surprised.

For breakfast, it's hard to top The Hatchery on Main Street in Ludlow. The place is always crowded on weekend mornings, but they know people want to eat and ski, so you'll be seated quicker than you think. The omelets are excellent, especially if you combine the eggs with Vermont cheddar. The pancakes, bacon and sausage also will get you energized to start the day.

Lunch on the mountain is always at the Roundhouse, a large, circular room at the end of the Jackson Gore Inn. Sure, they have your typical ski lodge fare like chile and burgers, but they also offer more health-conscious food like Vermont cobb salad, chicken Caesar wraps and fresh tomato, mozzarella and proscuitto.

Above Roundhouse was our kids' favorite restaurant, Siena, which serves Italian food. On the menu are pastas, ravioli, chicken and veal parmesan, as well as a seafood dish of scallops and clams in a white wine sauce over capellini.
