post #61 of 85
Simple. Pocket full of polenta.

Just fire up the Bass-O-Matic and fill up the Camelback. What could be simpler?
post #63 of 85
None. I just ski until I'm tired, then it's in for a beer and a tamale or some green chile stew.

Homemade gorp here and each time its made its a bit different.
M&M's (lots) peanuts, banana chips, dried cranberries, shaved coconut, chunks of dried fruit. Ziplock baggie to go....
We like Hidden Valley bars as well, and since the Lint choc factory was just down the road from us in Kilchberg Switzerland a Swiss girl always has a bit of choc in her pocket :-))

Until this thread I had never heard of the term gorp.

Lint choc, only exists after it has rolled around in your pocket!

It's Lindt!

Squid runs solo.  It's in the baggies to the right of the sausage.  It smells like TetraMin but the taste is pretty good, mosdef grew on me.  Kinda sweet and mildly fishy.  I suppose I'd prefer beef jerky but the squid is way cheaper.... forgot to thank epl for the tipThumbs Up

 

Magic Buttons (my name for them as I can't read Japanese) are peanuts with a savory cookie crust.  Once baked they're painted pretty colors and flavored with chives, or sesame or wasabi... or not.

 

The sausage I bought at a local Polish grocery that happened to be next to the bulk foods store where I got the ingredients for the gorpbwac.  It was in the deli case.  It was okay but not close to lanjager.

 

The mixed baggy is good old raisins, peanuts, blueberries, walnuts, almonds and chocolate =)

Mixed nuts with dried fruit is my preferable ski snack.

post #74 of 85

I pack Kimchi in a plastic container.

post #75 of 85

Raising four skier kids I always carried routine candy like M&Ms and Snickers, although lately I'm forgetting to fill my pockets. The good stuff in that category is Harry and David chocolate covered cherries!

 

On a ski trip to Austria in 2003 we stayed in a hotel with a great breakfast buffet. I got into the habit of grabbing extra fresh croissant rolls and filling them with Nutella (

http://www.nutellausa.com/). They got slightly smushed during the day, but still tasty for lunch or lift snack.

Indyhokie had Pop tarts in his pocket out west.  That's snacking!  Been years since I'd eaten one of those calorie, carb rich treats. 

 

I also love those sweet and salty almond bars mentioned earlier.  Can't recall what brand name they're made under either, but they are made by General Mills ( I used to work for them, got box loads of those bars then).

 

Other high carb low nutrition foods I'll occasionally have mixed in with my Nature Valley bars are Rice Crispy Squares.  Easy light snack. 

post #77 of 85

Ginger Brandy and a Slim Jim is a nutritious snack.  Wards off the chills.

post #78 of 85

Odwalla Bars.  They don't freeze as fast as Clif Bars.

post #79 of 85

Cliff bars. I don't find that the freeze if I keep them in an inside pocket. Plus they actually have taste unlke Powerbars which are like eating wall paste. I like kashi bars but find that they become like peanutbrittle when really cold.

 

How do you make GORP? What holds it together or is it loose?

 

Water in my backpack hydration unit. I have found that as I get older I need more water to keep going all day. I started drinking a small amount on every lift ride and have found that my legs last longer. Don't mean sidetrack this thread but does anyone else have a similar thought/feeling/opinion?

post #80 of 85

I definitely prefer a good Snickers (though they tend to turn into a jaw breaking rock) or jerky, preferably Elk. If I skipped breakfast, a pocket sandwich is also in order.

GORP = Good Old Raisins and Peanuts = loose

 

Try varieties as you desire.

GORP is the same thing that the grocery stores calls trail mix.  Making your own is better because you put what you want in it.
