+1 I love home made beef jerky. That's my fav although I still need carbs on the slopes. So, energy bar or those bite size Milky Ways, 3-4 of them. That's my breakfast and lunch on the slopes. Ride from first chair to last call without a break other than staying hydrated (water or gatorade) on the slopes.

I enjoy my lodge time too. At Bachelor they have a restaurant in one of the lodges higher up on the mountain where I can get a 14" gourmet pizza for $14 and either a beer or a bottomless hot chocolate. I can't eat that entire pizza so I'll split it with my wife and kids. $25 for four people is pretty cheap. Plus they have a fireplace where we can dry out our helmets and warm up.

If I eat too much I get food coma/deadleg and can't ride worth shit the rest of the day, so I eat just enough to keep me going. Most resort food is crappy nutrition though: chili-cheese fries, chili dogs, greasy this, greasy that. My favorite lunch was at Sun Valley with the most kick-ass salad bar ever.

Energy bars, PBJ and water if we're not stopping for lunch. If we do, it'll be some sort of Euro food... potato rosti with fried egg and ham, goulash, grilled chicken with fries, etc. Carbs carbs carbs!

Hydration bag with water, wrap or bag with nuts and dried fruit. Take 1-3 bites with a nap on the lift...good even burn...ride all day with none of the after meal slump.

That's been my route until now... but I lost it on the slopes one time. Stupid pockets didn't stay closed. My own damn fault. Months later (after the snow had melted) my driver's liscence showed up in the mail... but no credit card.

Buy them in bulk. Visit a Costco or something. My mom gets them for me by the case from this natural food co-op she's apart of. Not big on the whole "natural food" craze myself, but I love the cheap clif bars

If I'm driving to the hill I'll bring a plentiful supply of gatorade. Water just doesn't cut it. And anywhere but grocery store/costco prices on gatorade is WAY over priced.

If I'm traveling I try to get rooms super close to the lifts so that I can go back there to chill for my breaks instead of hitting up the resort for drinks.

But food wise, I tend to be lazy and just pay their rediculous prices. I should change that... save some money for gas/tix/trips/beer

Ski in/ski out (or ride in/ride out) is the greatest thing ever! I got to do that at The Cliff Lodge at Snowbird a couple of seasons ago. Ride up to the lodge, secure my board in my locker, then head to my room to rest and relax without a mob of sweaty people competing for tables in a steamy cafeteria. The best part was it was a business trip that someone else was paying for, so they had a full buffet laid out for me at each meal. The 4-day trip didn't cost me a dime.

Holy shit, A lot of you guys eat a ton of food on the slopes. If I ate that much food, I would go into a comma and want to take a nap in the lodge after lunch. I usually just get a good breakfast in and then have some granola or a PBJ on the chairlift - lunch breaks are for weenies.

Oddwalla bars, PRO bars (390 calories each) and Cliff Gel shots. Little water and no stop until your legs melt.
