With winter on its way, you may be looking forward to your annual ski trip. Or maybe you are visiting friends or family in the mountains for the holidays this year. Whether you are a frequent traveler to high altitude, or just go sometimes, it’s always nice to be able to cook and bake with ease when in the mountains.

If you weren’t aware, all my recipes can be made at sea level or at high altitude, with just one simple adjustment! When you’re reading a recipe here on my website, it’s written for sea level, and there is a note down at the bottom for one simple instruction for high altitude. So, you can always cook and bake any recipe you find here no matter where you live!

But I am still sharing 20 Cozy High Altitude Recipes here that you can make on your next trip to the mountains. This recipe roundup is full of mountain inspired recipes that will make you feel warm and cozy inside your ski cabin. And if you’re not in the mountains yet but are just getting the mood to make that elevation climb, these recipes will inspire you for that mountain lifestyle!

Don’t forget to get my book The Mountain Baker for more cozy high altitude (and sea level) recipes!
