This is so true BUT I do believe in hydrating the entire day. I try to ski non-stop(or maybe just a few minute breaks) from start until about 2:30-3:00. I bring gu's, fig bars, powerbars in my bag for nutrition and an extra layer if need be and a few other things too. The downside is I do need to stop a few times for a "nature" break. I ski Mammoth mountain mostly and you have to walk by the bathroom on your way to Gondola any ways so it's no big deal.

 

I see this as a perfectly^ reasonable attitude;   it always cracks me up when people carry water on their back but still get dehydrated because they're avoiding the need for nature breaks.

The advantage to skiing trees and sidecountry is there's ALWAYS a bathroom! :D

Thanks for that. ^^^ I haven't looked at hydration packs yet. That is a good place to start.

This reminds me of a sign I saw at a resort recently. Don't remember exactly where.

 

The sign said something to the extend - " Protect our water source, do not heed the call of nature outdoors"

The question I couldn't  figure out was how did they get Bambi to cooperate when Bambi can't read.

I once heard a football coach say that if you wait until game day to hydrate it is too late.

Hey DanoT(nice to hear from you, We skied together last year at Alta), I think that is partially true but I know for myself if I continue to hydrate during the day, it does help. I drink about 50-70 oz. during a day along with snacking and it can sustain me most of the day.

 

One other caveat with Camelbak packs vs some others(Dakine), with Camelbak you get the reservoir bladder already included which can you save you about 30 bucks. With Dakine(at least the one I bought), no bladder is included :mad

Agreed, you should continue to hydrate during the ski day but you just need to start hydrating days before the ski day.

By grabbing a handful of snow every couple of runs. Just don't eat yellow snow.
