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.

Beer! by PSYCHOSTICK [OFFICIAL VIDEO] "Beer is good and stuff" - YouTube

Shred that is GENIUS!
I bet Shred's method would be delicious with apple pie shine, tuaca, fireball, midori......I am kinda leery of eating any snow...there's always wierd shit in the air that the snow catches on the way down, for example this week our second dumping was chock full of dust blowing out of the southwest and all the snow is streaked reddish brown...ewwww.....

Banjo man I smell what ur steppin in, there's water in beer fools!!!

Cant you just drink a gatorade from your trunk at lunch?

Thats what I do. You're not running an ultra marathon through death valley.

Really.
What's with all the alcohol consumption while riding?
I guess nothing rehydrates quite like alcohol?
Maybe it helps tweak those cab 360 jumps? I don't get it.

Now after riding while sitting in the hot tub...

Yah, there's no logic in drinking alcohol while sweating tons of water either.

Hell, drink what/when you want!

That isn't true on several levels, I'm only breathing the air at one elevation for starters. Also the air I'm breathing isn't getting peed in or ridden on with waxed boards and skis before it goes in me. Also the snow gathers particulates in the air as it falls, and I can see it in the snow, I have no choice to stop breathing dusty air but the brown snow is all you.

fwiw, our moisture comes straight off the pacific ocean... i would only use the snowcone mix on legit freshies.... it's just kinda a fun thing, like keeping some candy in your pocket. its not really for re-hydrating you idiots.

Well I don't know what your snowboard parks use to line all the jumps?

But mine uses blue Slurpee, no fuckin' shit.

Dude's got a backpack full, with a pump sprayer.
If you see him you can pull up & get him to soak a nice patch anywhere you want.

I don't mind eating the snow, if it tastes like blue freezee

Plus my mtn got 37 feet (1109cm) of natural Snow this winter, so it's not like I was eating 6 week old snow.

It was fresh daily

Gatorade in platypus bottles FTW. One in each front pocket.

Makes a huge difference in my endurance. Also keep a trail mix with extra raisins in my pant pocket.

I've stopped drinking beer when I ride. Ill have a couple belts off the jäger bottle just before I hit the mnt for the first run. That's it. Then, beer immediately after I'm done for the day.

I last longer and feel much better with this method.
