I'm a big fan of a big breakfast. If you eat a huge breakfast, a granola bar on the slopes will do until you get home. That way you don't have to stop and you can snowboard all day.

you must not do very much serious riding then, or ride very much. There is absolutely no way a granola bar with a huge breakfast will last me from 9am until 4 (on average). Also the way we ride you cant NOT stop and take a break. You have to go back in halfway through the day, re-hydrate, dry off, and sit down and rest or you are going to exhaust yourself and get hurt.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Well I averaged over 200 days on slope each year for the last 5 years so I'd say I ride quite a bit actually. I have no problems with a huge breakfast *shrug* Works for me. I eat the granola bar on the chairlift then just wait until I get home to eat a very late lunch.

Also, I never said I don't stop for water. Obviously you gotta stop for a quick bathroom break at some point and grab some water as well.

Camelback.
Unless it's freezing or I have to take a piss, I try not to sit in the lodge if I can help it. You get a break every time you sit your ass on a chair lift.

You can shove half a pack of jerky and two or three cliff bars in your snow pants pockets pretty easily and this is enough food to eat all day. Plus, it doesn't give you that grease bomb gut hangover. Save that for the evening meal.

If you eat a solid breakfast, you can cut down the portions a bit, too.

Hey, whatever works for you. I have to spread it out, and no matter how much I eat for breakfast I am always hungry around the same time during a day at the mountain. I would assume that most people would want to have a full lunch and take a break at the lodge and relax anyway,

I don't like camel backs, or backpacks. I don't get that thirsty that I need a camelback.

I actually enjoy my lodge time, especially if I'm with my large group of friends. Its fun to all get lunch, kick back, b.s. and relax for a bit. I belive its all part of the experience, ya I love to be out and riding, but it wouldn't be half as fun if it weren't for a great group of friends, and I think its fun just takin a break and hangin out in the lodge with em

Usually just a sandwich or something like that and gatorade. I keep a couple granola bars on me usually to hold me over on the lift. Break length depends on how good the day is. If it's shitty/rainy, i'll take my time and have a few beers, forget all about the rain, and go have the best time ever. Sunny spring days you start late anyway so don't really need a break. Pow days i ride until its tracked out, take lunch, maybe go take a few park laps, if everything goes to plan. If everything doesnt go to plan, I'm post holing out of the slackcountry in waist deep poo, the entire afternoon, on the verge of puking.
