and a flask of hard liquor in my jacket, for on-lift encouragement

Camelback. And I've always read that eating snow is a terrible way to fight dehydration as your body expends too much energy warming it up.

Im pretty sure this only applies to survival type situations... snow tastes delicious.

For me I get my hydration from licking frost off the steel on the chairlift.

Early in the season the majority of our snow is man made. No chemicals are added and the drawn water is filtered.

That being said, I've seen stuff in the pond that doesn't "look" healthy. I've also seen the ends of our snow cane machines and they don't look pretty either.

I do NOT recommend eating the snow at Granite Peak in Wisconsin.

Personally, I fill a hip flask with vodka and always have cold PBR in my car which is located at the bottom of my favorite lift.

Quick run into a lodge or on-hill restaurant and slam a couple liters of juice/vitamin water at a time every couple hours...

assuming you dont carry a back pack that flexible bottle would be good... until you take a good digger and it pops and your soaked... but usually i carry a bottle in the back pack and fill it up when i need too.

I gotta agree with the hydration before in the form of a morning beer. hydration at lunch in the form of...beer, and DEFINITELY hydrating after with...beer. I mean, ill chug a big glass of water before each one too...but nothing quenches like a cold one.
My personal favorite is when me and a buddy carry a sixer up the first chair, have one each then stash 4 in the snow by a tree and voila, cold beer-breaks on mountain all day. i like beer.

Shred that is GENIUS!
