Default Best Lunch on the Slopes

What is your guys' favorite stuff to grub out on while you're on the slopes? I usually just pack a cooler of PB & J's, protein bars and some Full Throttle energy drinks. What do you guys think is the best lunch for boarding, the best stuff to give you the energy back to board all night?

i eat a big breakfast and usually pack a small lunch. a ham sandwich bag of chips, a cliff bar or health bar of some sort a beer or two and some water. i try not to eat big lunches because i get more tired.

if its a really good day you pull out the BBQ and make yourself a hotdog with pepper jack and the works.

yum

I'm all about hot food on the slopes. Most days I bring a thermos with some homemade soup in it.

Pizza, its usually the cheapest and has a high calorie load to get me through. I don't bring a lunch because I can't be bothered to carry it with me or download to my car to get it.

PB&J and Clif bars along with a big breakfast with lots of complex carbs and potassium. If in the lodge, then hot chili since it has a lot of protein and is usually relatively cheap

Ha! I thought I was the only one. PB&J for me. A banana or two for quick energy. Usually a multigrain bar of some kind. I also take some fruit like pineapple or something to mix it up.

I do it because I have to. I can't afford a $8 microwaved burger every time I go to the slopes.

The only time I ever got food that was WORTH what I paid was a bowl of nachos 4ft high for a few bucks. Problem was, I could barely move after I ate it, forget snowboarding.

I usually just do a PB&J too with those green Natures Best or whatever granola bar things in the green wrapper, damn they are good. I also do bagel and cream cheese and maybe some ham or something in it if i have any..those stay yummy and give you a good amount of carbs to keep going without being too heavy, and its easy to make in the morning in 30 seconds and throw in a ziplock..and if im feeling the need for warmth i can always just toss it in the microwave at the mountain so its versatile!

I try at all costs to avoid eating at the mountain lodge, atleast here at Meadows in Oregon(and most places) its a retarded ripoff.
For example yesterday i forgot to make food, so i sat down and looked at the menu real fast. Mmm an Italian Panini, sounds tasty, its some meat put on some bread put in a panini press...wait $15.75? No.
Swiss Burger? $8..oh you wait you wanted fries and a drink with that? Thats another $5.50. The worst one IMHO is 3.25 for 16oz Hot Chocolate which i've SEEN them make and its literally powdered hot chocolate put in a giant thermos thing with hot water. It must cost them like 25 cents to make the hot chocolate.
4 dollar Monster drinks(that you can get for $1.50 just down the mountain)...
They take every advantage to bend you over, its the one thing i despise about Meadows.

Man, I'd be outside BBQing even if it was 50 below zero.

I'm kinda poor so I usually bring some granaola/candy bars or eat nothing. Fuck paying $10 for a piece of pizza and a drink.

edit: I once took a sandwich, a banana, and a bag of pecans and I fell a lot that day... Pecan bag ripped, banana was contorted into some amazing shape, and the sandwich was pulverized.

We used to marinate tender slabs of elk or beef and cook it on the portable barbecue. Make some great saucy burgers. Probably the best ever, cheap, tasty, filling.

Now I make about 3-4 roast beef sandwiches, a back of chips, soup or noudles... Granola bars.

I havveee to eat alot.
