Who's got time to set up a cooking operation ? I would rather eat a PB&J and keep on keeping on than stop to cook.
Another word. .....Microwave. Cook some soup ,down some liquids and get back up.
Now if somebody's ski caddy was cooking, and I could hit and run ,that cooker would be very nice. More so for after skiing I think.
Tailgating usually means before the event but in skiing i would think it would mean the opposite. Beer , brats and good conversation.
