Zone snack ideas for ski trip

Hey guys, next week some friends and I are going skiing for a few days and I need some ideas for snacks I can carry with me on the slopes. I've always carried a couple of PB and honey sandwiches in my pocket on previous trips, but would like something a little more Zone-ish. We go at it pretty hard for the three days we're there. We're there waiting for the lifts to open in the morning, and we leave when the lifts close in the evening. Other than a 30-40 min break to eat lunch, the only time we stop is when we're riding the lift. So, the very high level of physical activity plus my naturally high metabolism requires that the snacks contain lots of calories. I appreciate any help.

thanks, jarrett

Boiled eggs are great on the lifts - you can drop the shells on people below too! look up the homemade larabar recipe and bring some of those too.

I bring cans of fish everywhere I go!

The obvious- nuts and dried fruit.

Chocolate milk- Just buy a 500ml box. When your done they can fold up pretty small.

Cottage cheese and fruit.
On that note- I hike a lot and am a big fan of ziplock. Bring everything and anything in Ziplocks, cause the bags control mess and take up no space if you can't find a trash can. Use them for the cottage cheese.

Do you use a little spoon for the cottage cheese? Or just squish it out of the bag and into your mouth?

Re: Zone snack ideas for ski trip

Normally bring a spoon.

But depending (meats, veg, grains) I'll just squish/push it out.

Also, depends a lot on where I am and what I'm doing. I'm in the habit now, so I pack my food this way most of the time. For school and work I always bring a spoon. Funny how surprised and somtimes offended people get when they see me eating out of a ziplock. All the while they're hauling around big empty tupperware
People are strange and stuck in 'normal land' I guess!

I'll admit it's wasteful. I do recyle. But I still feel bad... It's just so practical. I will reuse the bags if they've had dry stuff in them.
