When it comes to skiing or snowboarding, no day is complete without gathering with friends and family afterward to share the stories of your day. During the winter months, this is easily done at a bar, restaurant or even back at the place you are staying. However, with spring upon us, tailgating is always an excellent option and nothing quite sets the right tone for this kind of gathering like a good firepit.
There are plenty of portable firepits on the market, however, after recently demoing the Solo Stove and its firepit cooking system I found it to be a formidable choice for your next après ski tailgate party. The Solo Stove’s modern stainless steel design sets the ambiance, as the highly efficient burners keep your group warm while you cook up some tasty food for everyone there.
Take Your Après Ski Tailgate to the Next Level
Après ski tailgating is always my go to choice to unwind after a day on the slopes in the spring. Now the Solo Stove along with the fire pit cooking system gives you the ability to stay warm and fed. The Solo Stove fire pit cooking system has everything you need to take your après ski tailgate to the next level:
The Firepit: The Solo Stove firepit is made from high-quality stainless steel and features a unique airflow system that allows for the highly efficient burning of both wood and charcoal.
Cooking Kit: The cooking kit includes a tripod stand, grill grate, and pot stand, giving you everything you need to cook a wide range of meals like these on the Solo Stove blog. The tripod stand allows you to hang pots and pans over the fire, while the grill grate is perfect for grilling up some burgers, hot dogs or steaks.
- Pellet Adapter: The new pellet adapter allows for the use of wood pellets to heat the stove. Not only are pellets an efficient fuel source but their even burn makes them perfect for cooking in outdoor settings. The adapter fits right onto the fire pit and allows for smooth placement and removal of the pellets, making it easy to control the heat output and cook a variety of meals.
Portable: The entire Solo Stove firepit system is designed to be highly portable. This means that you can easily take it with you wherever you go – like to your next après ski tailgate party. Head out for a day of skiing and riding then return to the convenience of the Solo Stove firepit cooking system.
Visually Setting the Stage for Your Day’s End
In addition to being highly functional and easy to use, the Solo Stove fire pit visually sets the stage for your gathering. The stainless steel looks really cool with the snow as its backdrop and the fire can provide a warmth as that alpenglow settles in for the day.
So if you are looking to take your après ski tailgating to the next level, I highly recommend the Solo Stove fire pit cooking system. With its high-quality construction, efficient burners, and easy-to-use cooking kit, it’s the perfect way to cook up some delicious meals and enjoy the great outdoors with friends and family après ski.
