What do you eat on the mountain?

I was thinking that maybe I would eat at the lodge, but then realized it would be way overpriced and pretty crappy food. Then I thought about going to some restraunt outside the resort, but i dont feel like wasting an hour driving around and waiting for food. So now i'm trying to decide what to pack. Any body else do this? What do you bring?

I like to bring ramen noodles. Quick, easy, and cheap.

eat a high carb breakfast before getting to the resort, eat like a king, drink a water for every 2 hours of riding you do, good for you but kinda hard to carry around i know, a camelback is best but still.. carrying stuff on the hill sux, so anyway, bring some candy, trail mix, almonds for your pocket.. a little snack makes a difference when your burning close to 1000 calories an hour when riding hard, pick your pleasure for lunch but you dont need to go overboard otherwise your gonna feel sluggish when you head back out ... more water and snack if you like for the rest of the day ... then go BIG at dinner and refuel your body with lots of carbs again and eat like a king once more, not only does this help your day but it will greatly help your 2nd day of consecutive riding if thats the case, if not, apply the big meal and carbs to your night before and you will be ready to ride

I eat a hearty breakfast before snowboarding. I like to eat corn beef hash with scrambled eggs and pancakes. For lunch, if I eat in the lounge it is a pizza or burger with beer. When I pack my own lunch, it is usually sandwiches. I also pick up Subway before going to the mountain so I can eat that for lunch occasionally.

I drink lots of water or Gatorade. I prefer Gatorade for the electrolytes

If you are on a bigger mountain, you can pack some protein bars. Those Cliff bars are tasty and will give you energy.

Really? I thought you eat burritos for substanance and snow for liquids.

As for your water thing, I would be so paranoid of what people might do to my water.

Well, usually my lunch on the mountain consist of two slices of homebaked dark danish "Rugbrød" (or rye-bread if translated) with a bit of ham & cheese in between.

For those that don't know what this is, it's baked without yeast on rye and wheat flour, with whole rye grains in. One of these breads can in a bad situation be used quite well as a club, and two thick slices of it (if homebaked, the bought stuff is baked using a little yeast to make it lighter, but what's the point then?) will leave you full for the next four hours!

And it's a small enough lunch that you can pack it in your pocket without trouble, so no need for a backpack
