Not too far off the mark my friend. Yes, I pretty much stay on EST and the latest I sleep is 6. I get up, make coffee and take care of my e-mail, make a couple of calls for work, Then get breakfast for gang ready. I like to cook and it makes the time fly. I decide the night before what I'm making so I start the bacon and all before anyone gets up. Only one item on the menu per AM, after that, you're on your own. Its a tradition now. At Steamboat, you don't don't have to leave much before 8:30-8:45. No rush. Put your boots on in the locker and throw your shoes on top. You're ready to roll.

exactly!

1- wake up

2- start boiling water and start warming skillet with leftover vegetables and breakfast meat(s) or whatever is laying around in the fridge.

3- put on clothes

4- Use boiling water for french pressed coffee or the caffeine beverage of choice. Add eggs to skillet mix.

5- Start car/load if necessary

6- scramble skillet mix, fold into burritos with beans, cheese, tapatio (or other inferior hot sauce), etc..

7- hit the road, burrito(s) in hand.

If you are efficient and know the timing, you can cook a pretty solid breakfast in passing while doing other things.

I find an 800 calorie breakfast burrito bomb works pretty damn good if it has 30-45 minutes to digest. Metabolically, I don't really feel hunger until I stop skiing for some time, so I just keep skiing and chow a clif bar with adequate hydration sometime around lunch.

None taken.

You mean to tell me you are not a fan of a neat Johnny Walker Blue?
or even a Chivas Regal for that matter?

Scotch is just plain nasty. Give me beer, wine or margarita anyday. Of course, if scotch is all there is.....pass it over and I'll drink it.

Here is an exchange from the movie Mr. Mom.

Jack: Want a beer?
Ron: It's 6:00 in the morning?
Jack: Scotch?

Of course, compounding the need for fuel [at first light and before exercise] is the fact the body normally has starved 6-8 hours overnight. Moral: Make the time and synch the metabolism; eat well, perform well, recover well, rinse and repeat.

Oh, SHUT UP!!

Let's not forget - some people have plenty o' body to cannibalize...

I just eat something that isn't going to make me have to crap all morning. EASY on the dark coffee... Whole wheat toast with peanut butter is my secret weapon against the stoolies!

very much the same type of breakfast - but if in europe Museli . Don't like to have too much in the stomach - will have an energy bar on about the 5th lift up and then a light lunch of soup or Goulash.Hate to feel full in the afternoon as it makes me ski lazy and sluggish

The biggest cheeseburger I can find!!!!!
I actually did this last week. I had an an early class so I couldn't leave until about 10:30. Picked up a Carls Jr. six dollar burger on the way up. Not a good idea. It was way to much of a good thing. Felt like my gut was going to explode all day.
From now on its back to the yogurt, granola and whatever fruit is sitting on my counter.

well to answer that one diplomatically, there is a reason why there are many different brands. Drink what you like but No, I don't care for either, especially the Chivas.

Midletons Very rare irish whiskey
Blantons small batch bourbon

Well, if I wake up on time and all goes accordingto schedule:
1)
1.1 Muesli with yogurt
1.2 Tea with milk
1.3 My dayly intake of pills
Then, if I feel like, I stop along the road (or at a mid mountain station) and have
2)
-Cappuccino and a
-Croissant (one, just one)

If I do not wake up on time, I skip point 1.1 and 1.2 (but not 1.3) and go directly to 2
