If you are in a hurry to hit the slopes the Sweet Potatoes Deli is also there to catch a quick coffee and breakfast before heading out.

As the day moves to lunchtime I found the outdoor Chuck Wagon western barbecue, in front of the chairlift a good place to ski back to at lunchtime, sit around and give the kids, or whomever, a break to go to the room if they were tired.
Inside Resort at Squaw Creek the casual Sandy's Pub, a sports bar with TVs galore, has great pub food with plenty of eats for the kids.
