Fresh snow and spring-like ski conditions: two very good reasons why D.C residents might be taking a short drive for a ski trip soon.
But, don't just go because the lift lines are open. There's also plenty of roadside eating to be experienced along the way. In this guide to skiing and eating, Eater maps out some of the pit stops worth taking, either before or after the slopes. These are the Italian hoagies, fried pickles, and milkshakes worthy of a detour. Just remember, nothing says après-ski like a freshly baked donut topped with glazed sugar or bacon.
