I could see where that would be nice Dorothy (snojock)or is that Kansas.

"Click your heels together 3 times and you will be in powder." Just dreaming!

I thought only Aussies expounded the virtues of Vegemite. (Maybe there is a story there snojock?). For the unitiated a thick black evil smelling paste that is good on bread (and potatoes apparently) and could also be used for blacking tyres or sealing leaking boats. I like it.

how can you eat snacks while going up the lift? that would require some super dexterity or unzipping pockets and/or removing gloves (*shiver*).

i actually never even thought about lift snacks, i usually don't get hungry while skiing or on the lifts. i'm too busy salivating over the next run.

for lunch, i bring a sandwich and nutrigrain bar, sometimes popcorn. i stop skiing for 15 minutes to eat. that's it! other than that, it's ski lift open to lift close.

I don't.
I usually have some carbs and protein for breakfast, like a bagel & cream cheese, then I pop a Stacker 2.

It's basically an ECA stack; ephedrine, caffine & asprin.

That keeps my metabolism in high gear and takes the edge off any soreness because of the asprin.

It actually never crossed my mind to snack on the chair. Not that it is a bad idea, but I just did not feel the need.
If I were to bring something, I think It would be a chocolate bar or dried fruit.

(edit- spelling)

It had never crossed my mind either, until a mate pushed his poles at me on the chair with a, "Hang on to these," and started disrobing as we swung periously over a rock face, before pulling a choclate bar from deep within the confines of his clothing and asking if I wanted a bit.
Not wanting to appear a prude, I said yes without asking where it had been stored.
Now I am hooked. It means you can miss lunch, have a late one or start a conversation. (Think of the possibilites if you have champagne in the camel pack.)
It is easier to achieve if you have no fear of skiing without poles, as you are not so concerned if they drop (Hopeing anybody below has a helmet!).

I buy in bulk cause that’s what Aussie ski bums do. I make myself a survival pack each day.

Trail mix (nuts & fruit), Cadburys chocolate (cause hersheys has a high sand content), water in the camelback under my uniform\parka, peanut butter & honey multi grain sandwiches (hard to find decent bread).

I stay away from anything with “power” on the label because there are way to many scientists fingers in the mix.

Oh almost forgot … I keep a couple of potatoes in my front pocket ... they have multiple uses.

Oh yep again … not for eating, but it is a wild world out there so I also carry a toothbrush, a box of matches and a picture of my boys.

In Oz we use Vegimite to keep our kids in line ... make your bed or its vegi toast for dinner.

Tiger Bars. Buy one if you ever see them, try 'em, you'll like 'em. Strangely enough, I don't eat them in the summer, just on the lift in the winter.
Gorp (pnuts, m&m's, raisins) in a Hefty slidebar ziplock.

Frozen beer cubes.

Water at all times, Cliff Bars, or whatever energy type bar I pick up, Twix bars, (chocolate, carmel, and the cookie crunch!).
Usually keep a bunch of Ricola cough drops in the pocket too, great for keeping the saliva flowing.

Gee Argus I drool just looking at snow.

Cliff/Luna Bars or homemade trail mix (Honey Nut Chex Mix with plain M&M's). Course one of my best mid day snacks ever was the extra bean burrito i had bought that morning at the Taco Bell across from Embassy Suites in Tahoe.
post #28 of 35
Cliff bars, Kudos bars, Nutri-grain breakfast bars and water from the Camelback all day long. Usually eat on the lifts and don't stop for lunch.

Hmmm...let's see if I can remember all the crap that visited my pockets last winter(getting a Camel Back with a backpack this year so my 6 pockets full of gear don't make me look like a chipmunk with the mumps). New Braunfels Beef Jerky, dried apricots, Slim(as in Jim), granola bras...I mean bars, chips, nuts, and assorted candy.

I've actually found that if you have an outside pocket(that stays cold most of the time), frozen goods such as Ice Cream Sandwiches, Big Bears, and popsicles will make it to lunchtime ;^)

But at the same time, 1 o'clock comes around and that bowl of fartable chili starts to call you from the steeps. "No more crowd here in the lodge...you know you want a hot lunch Cy...there may even still be a few hot ladies putting their boots on..."

Anyway...what's a few extra dollars for a warm meal and a beer? Well...just a few if you aren't in VT or CO.
