S’moresapalooza – Northstar Village February 27 2016
Yes, if you’re reading this, the title is right S’moresapalooza is coming to the Village at Northstar this Saturday, February 27, 2016!
What a sweet way to end the month of February than by indulging in a S’moresapalooza event!
For those that are not familiar with what a S’more is, let me share the tasty components that go into this campfire treat.
Recipe for making a S’more:
- Two (2) graham crackers
- One (1) perfectly toasted marshmallow that is ready to slip off its roasting stick
- One (1) chocolate bar (nuts in the chocolate are optional)
While all of the ingredients are important, the key to a great S’more is the marshmallow. The marshmallow has to be toasted to a gooey perfection, and while it is still hot from being toasted in either the wood campfire or in the gas fire pit, you’ll then put that gooey hot marshmallow next to the chocolate candy bar in between the two graham crackers and then enjoy.
A S’more is typically a campfire treat, but with our open gas fire pits that are located at our ski resorts and in now in many of our Tahoe back-yards and decks here in the Lake Tahoe region, the S’more is now making a year-around appearance.
Nothing takes me back in time than being around a campfire and toasting marshmallows and making this classic camp dessert.
I’ll be the first to admit more often than not, I’ve set my marshmallow on fire and I’ve had it turn into a crispy charred black object, rather than the perfect golden brown it should have been with that gooey inside. This is one of those things in life that practice not only makes for perfection, but is also a lot of fun to do as you get to eat the rejects!

You can see that we have the traditional S’more on the event schedule, but you can see that the S’more can be so much more.
Recently, I’ve seen this campfire treat on a restaurant menu – can you say “I’ll have the deconstructed S’more?” Can you imagine the possibilities with specialty chocolate candy bars, and gourmet cookies and how this goes to a whole new level that any Foodie would appreciate? It’s not just a treat for the kids any more!
I’m hoping S’moresapalooza (just try saying that word three times and see if it doesn’t put a smile on your face) becomes an annual event at Northstar. What a fun way to make the transition into spring skiing and to get ready for SnowFest! 2016 North Lake Tahoe’s Snow Festival, which starts next week March 3 – March 13, 2016!
