What's your favorite on mountain snack? - Page 5

post #121 of 140

I have an emotional attachment to how refreshing easy peel oranges are for on the mountain.  Thirst quenching, revitalizing, and clean to eat, for a fruit at least.

PULEEZE tell me you don't throw those "easy" peels on the snow, reasoning, perhaps, that they are "biodegradable"! They are, of course, but only after a period of time, during which those of us who live here have to walk, and ski, over or around them! 

 

I'm sure you don't, but it amazes me the trash that visiting skiers just throw down on the snow as if it will magically disappear . . . and not REappear as the snow melts!  Paper, plastic, bottles, fruit peels, cigarettes, you name it they leave it. You'd think ski clothes didn't have pockets, or that skiers/boarders didn't carry packs!

 

End of rant.

 

Oh, and I chew sugarless gum (because it's either that or carry water and I hydrate plenty off the slopes) and carry Snickers (except the nuts stick in your teeth), Three Musketeers or Milky Way bars: the bite sized ones. They all freeze, but I kind of like that.

The visiting skiers thing is odd. The people throwing the beer cans off the lift at Big Sky aren't visiting from Texas.

(eta ... I have spent the past 5 minutes trying to figure out an appropriate way to say "Thanks for sharing your habanero beef stick with me" but I just can't find the right words. Anyway, it was tasty. redface.gif)

If BF is driving, he can surely bring a case, (or such)

Do you use a "light teriyaki" flavor?


There are various ways to make it, but if not teriyaki then soy sauce with brown sugar or other sweetener.  Raw spam is nasty, but anything fried up like that is going to be good with rice. 

 

Ok now I'm really hungry.

Yup, and when I say long......Ha!

 

I'll mosdef be bringing a personal stash and I'm always willing to share a bit, however, this stuff ain't cheap!  If anyone wants to chip in to my paypal account then perhaps a case can be arranged.

 

Oh, and another caveat:  I'm planning stops in Winter Park, Steamboat, SLC and Homewood prior to the Gathering.  That means lots of hungry friends.... I may be looking to raid your jerky stash by the time of the big event =)

Hey, your Tahoe housemates will be very happy to spring for some great on-mountain stash! We need to add this to the grocery list!

Waffles! Preferably the ones served at Corbet's Cabin at the top of the Jackson Hole tram.

Homemade food bars with the exact nutrition profile and flavors you want. Easy to store and eat while out on the hill and cheaper and healthier than pre-made bars. Jerky for the savory snack. And a good quality electrolyte tablet when rehydrating.

Now what exactly does that remind me of?    Oh, right, IIFYM.

Last year out west we made a bunch of hard boiled eggs in the morning, peeled them and rolled them in salt and pepper and then put them in baggies.   They were excellent.  We also brought some bagged trial mix as well.

If by exactly you mean not even a little bit and IIFYM has pretty much nothing whatsoever do to with my post both in spirit and intent than I totally agree with you.

Um?  You agree with the thing that something else reminds me of?    That's almost like a Derren Brown trick.  :)      

The trick is especially astonishing since we are so far apart in both spirit and intent that you don't appear to see the joke in your words "exact nutrition profile and flavors you want" being interpreted as IIFYM if macronutrients are what the person wants.

(There is a meta level here about wants being defined by environmental stimuli - hey Derren Brown can make a person want a red BMX bike even if he wrote down and signed 'leather jacket'-  but that was beyond the scope of my original/failed attempt at humour.)

I salt hard boiled eggs and leave them in the fridge for a satisfying snack. If I could think of a way to safely carry potato salad with me too, I might even be willing to take a break to eat lunch instead of gnawing on disappointing energy bars, nuts and other unappetizing stuff on the lift.

They make little plastic egg 'holders' that you can put the hard boiled eggs into in case you're worried about crushing them.  Usually they have 4 or 6 eggs spaces in them.  People often use them for camping. 

 

When we did this my buddy carried the backpack with our stuff and he is not a charger at all so we had no worries of it getting crushed from a back slap or anything.   I did in fact crash a few times, which is why I don't carry the food  :D

Landjager sausages. They look like little pepperoni sticks with flattened sides. They're dried so they don't need refrigeration, and they remain chewable if they freeze. And they're delicious.

I'm sorry, I didn't get the joke I guess and still don't. I'm a simple guy so if something is meta its probably way over my head. I still like my foodbars though ;)

I'm not so concerned about the eggs--they taste the same whether they're whole or have been mauled in a freezer bag stuck in my pocket. It's more the potato salad that concerns me, just because it's messier. I don't fall a whole lot (knocking on wood), and this year I'll usually carry a low profile hydration pack under my jacket, so maybe I could underfill it in the morning and put the food in the extra space. th_dunno-1[1].gif:

Recipe, please! Ideas are always welcome. Pre-made bars are either too loaded with nuts that sit in my stomach when I'm active, grains that don't give me lasting energy, or highly processed protein-like substances--or all three. nonono2.gif

Chocolate covered coffee beans and beef jerky for the win
