Situated down the road from Main Street (and, fortunately, far enough away from its chaos), Windy Ridge feels like a true local’s place. They bill themselves as a destination for comfort food, and the menu has plenty of fried favorites like popcorn shrimp and onion rings, plus hearty post-ski dishes like meatloaf, macaroni and cheese, and roasted chicken with mashed potatoes; their southwest corn chowder is famous. Good to know: They do prepared dinners for families of four, which can be clutch when you’re renting, or if you have your own place.
