    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


Colorado Ski - Copper Or Vail

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

We're hoping to go to either Copper Mtn or Vail in March, and we'd like to enroll our 5 yr old celiac in ski school.

Has anyone had any experience with kids' ski school and gluten-free eating in either place? The all-day lessons include lunch, and I'm fine to send lunch with her if no options are available, but I'm not sure the ski school will accomodate. I will certainly check, but I'm curious if anyone has any experience with this at either place - I couldn't find anything on the web, even in this forum.

The following was accidentally reported by GFmomofsons.

We just went skiing at Mission Ridge in Washington. We had the chili for lunch, and some of us used our gluten-free bread to sop it up. Couldn't have the fries. There might be something your child can eat; you ought to be able to call ahead to make enquiries.

Hi Nina,

I am Celiac and teach skiing very part time in Vail. I have skied all over Colorado and am always looking for gluten free options.

Most of Vail's on mountain restaurants have gluten free items listed. They are aware of the gluten-free market and I'm hoping there are even more options this year. As of last year, I didn't see any gluten-free designations in Copper. Summit County has several gluten-free options and Vail does, too. I know you posted awhile ago so I hope you get this.

I am happy to help you find gluten-free restaurants, etc when you decide where you are going. We spend a lot of time in both Vail and Summit county so I'd be happy to share info with you. Since I work in Vail, I can also help connect you to a supervisor before you arrive so they know your needs. If you decide on Copper, I would call in advance and ask to speak to a supervisor. Either way, I would stuff a gluten-free sandwich and snacks in your child's pocket just in case. Students can get switched into different classes and unfortunately, everyone doesn't understand our gluten-free needs.

There are some great kids restaurants in Vail (pizza, burgers with gluten-free bun) and Frisco has a lot too but they don't all have the same knowledge of cross contamination. I can share all my "research" with you!

This might be helpful for others, but the original poster went skiing in 2008. She probably hasn't been on is site in a few years.
