German- and Swiss-inspired fare helps warm you after a chilly day on the slopes. Best of all, most of it can be made ahead, with minimal fussing in the kitchen when you just want to kick back with a cocktail or beer. The beer-braised bratwursts are topped with a tangy make-ahead pickle slaw. The Swiss macaroni & cheese–a stick-to-your-ribs dish if there ever was one–can be assembled completely in advance and just baked shortly before dinner. And the German pear pancake comes together quickly after dinner.
