A ski hill for the ski hill is what I always say! Nothing like a cocaine induced nosebleed to wake you up in the morning!!!

Okay all kidding aside, I keep boxes of granola bars and sport drinks (i.e. no name gatorade) in my truck at all times. Grab a couple of those on the way to the hill, have some trail mix, and occasionally I take beef jerky on the hill with me. IF I stop for lunch it's usually on the mid-mountain lodges where I can just grab a half coffee/half hot chocolate if I'm really cold, or tea if I'm not, and maybe a burger or something for lunch.

I don't want to waste time digesting while on the hill, so fruits are good for breakfast.

No need for caffeine, if your heart isn't beating hard on the runs I'm doing, you're an anomaly. Stimulants make me jittery anyway, I'm better with downers... lol

I stick to a serious drug regiment to keep my mind limber.

I think Lance A was a big FRS guy right?

I like a good blackberry brandy/redbull mixer whilst riding, or at anytime for that matter

Energy drinks usually makes you more alert and that can relate to sleeps. If you get a decent sleep at night say 7-9 hours, the next morning when you hit the mountain with a nutritional breakfast, you will last much longer on the mountain than those that have lack of sleeps and rely on those high caffeine energy drinks.

Plenty of water and you are good to go all day long on the mountain. I heard recently that a kid died of drinking those energy drinks.

Only time I drinks Red Bull was when I am a bit tired droving home from the snow and it takes 2-3 hours. But I would far better off having a power nap say 15-20 minutes and I am totally refreshed and don't need those energy on the trip home.

I try to drink a lot of water the day before riding and then don't drink anything till after I am done riding, usually Gatorade. That way you stay hydrated and don't have to keep stopping to pee. No coffee for me. Just tea.

Not all of us get to or even like to sleep that long. When I lived in Tahoe I would regularly sleep 1-3 hours and get up first thing to ride, down a coffee or Rock Star Coffee Drink and be good to go.

I also just did a Tough Mudder event without sleeping the night before and my group and I finished in the top 5%. Being able to rally without getting a ton of sleep every single day is part of being a man, and if you're healthy and keep yourself in relatively good shape, it shouldn't be a problem to do so every now and then.

This is key. I drink a ton of water every day and I feel so much better overall when I am hydrated.

That kid had a multitude of medical disorders, which is why he died. Studies show that energy drinks are no more harmful for healthy people than your average soda pop. With that said, I don't drink them at all anymore because of the corn syrup, preservatives, and all the other junk that's in them. Regular coffee, water, and green tea are the best energy drinks I've found.

I second the sleep thing. In most military training you only get about five or six hours a night. In more advanced training, such as BUDS, Green Beret, or PJs, you only get about three hours a night. And they are pushing the limits of the human body and brain.

Wouldn't you say your alertness depleted completely with 1-2 hours sleeps? I have those nights with sleepless nights and up on the mountain, I would dose off at the lifts, luckily the lift was slow...
