The best chairlift snacks you should definitely try out.

Life can be busy and we all know that. If you are not running to school before the sun comes up you are maybe sleeping because you know, you got to sleep even if it is just for a little. I am one of the person who always prepared his food. I told myself it is easy to make some sweet potatoes and eat while am out skiing. Sometimes I would even prepare some saltine crackers, but you know what? I got busy!

Never thought I would get this busy, now it is not about making homemade snacks, it is all about efficiency. I really don’t have the time to make the homemade snacks but I love skiing and if you are reading this article you do too. So when I go out skiing I carry some ski snacks that help me out stay full and below are some of my favorite. Am sure you are definitely going to fall in love with them. Let us check them out:

Snickers.

You are definitely going to fall in love with these chocolate candy bars. If they are not the best chairlift snacks then they are definitely among the best. The snicker have two bars in every pack and they are made with caramel, milk, peanut butter, nougat and of course chocolate. They are helpful to the body as they are sweet. You don’t need to be hungry in order to have some, you can take some just for fun and when you are super hungry, you can be sure that snickers will be handy. They come in different sizes whereby you can opt for single size if you are out skiing alone, share size bars which you can share with your friend while out skiing, full size bars that you can be sure to pack for lunch when you are going out for a movie or something and whenever hunger strikes odd you can be sure of combating.

The snickers snacks have an artificial flavor and all you need is remove the product from the packaging and you are good to go. I can proudly say the snickers are the greatest American chocolate of all time. Buy one from here https://www.amazon.com/SNICKERS-Singles-Chocolate-1-86-Ounce-48-Count/dp/B001HXI0V0 and thank me later.

Lemonheads.

You got to love this lemonheads, am pretty sure some of you guys have tried them out and you can agree they are simply amazing. If you are buying for your friend who loves skiing she will definitely love them because they make perfect gift. Whenever I am out with my boys this is what I usually carry with me, they are delicious that I think am addicted to them. Am not sure if they are addictive but even if they are who cares? These original lemonheads are available at amazon and they come at a very affordable price. I can assure you that your kids are definitely going to fall in love with them.

Twix.

I have to admit that Twix are among my favorite snacks. I find them super delicious and I usually buy some for myself and I can recommend that you try them out. One pack of 36 counts consists of smooth creamy chocolate crunchy cookies, chewy caramel taste. The candies arrive very fast when you shop from Amazon and you can always buy some from your usual food store.

If you are going out with kids, this is something you don’t want to leave out of your package. Kids can be whiny but when you have some Twix carried with you, you can be sure your kid will be clam because hunger will be a problem of the past. You want to try some?

The shipping is done fast and the ones I ordered came in a good condition. Some people complain that theirs melted but mine were in good condition so I don’t want to speak for them. If you don’t want to buy from amazon you can always buy from the stores. I can guarantee you are going to love these delicious snack.

Pop-tarts.

Are you still yet to try out pop-tarts? You are missing out a lot. This snacks are perfect for breakfast and the taste is just amazing. Pop-tarts are baked with real fruits and are good source of vitamins as well as other minerals. The peanut butter in them and the sprinkled strawberries makes them irresistible to both adults and kids. The cookies are manufactured by Kellogg a company we can all trust. I mean they have been operational for more than 100 years providing Americans with high quality food and the pop-tarts are no different. If you want them warm, you can simply pop them in your toaster and be sure to enjoy them with a glass of milk. But if you don’t have the time and you just want to go out the cookies are ready for use you just need to pack a few on your backpack and you are good to go.

Pop tarts do not contain the harmful Trans fats that most packaged foods contain and as I have said they are travel ready food so you can be sure of carrying some when you are out skiing. You should be aware that the product contains eggs so if you are allergic you might want to avoid.

10 useful ski hacks to help make the most out your day

Posted in Ski Tips on Sep 28, 2019

Getting ready for some shredding? Awesome!

Here a are 10 quick and useful tips/hacks to make the most out of your day!

Ski Hack #1 Loosen your boots

On the first couple of runs of the day, ride with slightly loose ski boots so that they can warm up and adjust to your feet - instead of blocking your blood flow early and making your feet cold and/or in pain.

Your first runs are often the most casual and easy runs where you get warmed up and back into the ski feel, so you won't lose any desired control from the loose boots. As the day goes and your feet and boots get warmer, you can tighten them up bit by bit until they have a perfect fit, and are ready for your best lines.

Ski Hack #2 Hit the hardest slopes first (experienced riders only)

If you're an experienced skier and if you want to try all of the slopes, always go to the steepest/hardest slopes first! At the end of the day there will be a lot of snow heaps and you won't be having a lot of fun. Since you are the fittest in the morning and the weakest in the afternoon you should adjust your style and the slopes you ride in order to prevent crashes and have the most of fun :)

Ski Hack #3 Make a balaclava when the weather changes

If the wind picks up or its starts getting alittle more cold than expected an easily solution to keep a bit warmer is to make a balaclava out of your t-shirt. Just wrap the t-shirt around your head and keep the head hole open for your eyes and nose and ninja it up a little.

Ski Hack #4 Carry Duck Tape around your pole

Carrying duct tape can help out in many situations, such as a cut on your skin, or a hole in your jacket. Just wrap a half width around your pole a few times so you can keep it there all the time with little extra weight. This is a awesome little ski hack that can help you out

Ski Hack #5 Bring snacks

This one is obvious and you may know this one already, but surpriseling enough you always forget right? Bringing snacks saves so much time and money by avoiding long lunch ques and expensive on mountain restaurants. Bananas are tasty but are not a good choose unless your prefreese it? Nut bars, protein bars, premade sanwiches, turkey drumstick are all good choices.

Ski Hack #6 Hot Water Flask + Instant Noodles

Bring a flask of hot/ boiling water and a packet of instant noodles to it for a lush hot snack at the top of your favourite line. Find a secret place to stash it, to be lighter weight.

Ski Hack #7 Carry as little as possible

The better riders I have met are always carrying very little. Light weight boots, using a paper clip as a wallet, only one key without the key chain. Ask yourself, what do I really need? Keep it light, with give keep you lighter on your ski, and usually a more enjoyable experience.

Ski Hack #8 Find a local rider and ask for some guidence

If you are newish to a mountain asking a good local rider for some guidence will make your expereince possibly ten fold better. They will know nooks and crannys that can sometimes take years to find depending on the mountain size. Don't be shy and get that chin waggin. Talk some banter and find yourself a guide for a few runs!

Ski Hack #9 Demistify your goggles the night before

If you have already done a day skiing on the slopes, make sure to dry your goggles real good! Also note, if it's snowing, don't take your goggles off to wipe them, if snow gets inside it fog up for the rest of your day.

Ski Hack #10 Sort out your logistics and ski hire the night before

Nothing worst than, lining up to get your ski gear, then lining up for your ski pass, then lining up to get on the gondola or ski lift. Get this sorted before hand so you will have more energy and enthusiasm on the mountain.
