On days that I'm coaching I eat either a pb&j sandwich on whole grain bread or an evol breakfast burrito (around 350 calories) for breakfast with coffee with a splash of milk), lunch is a sandwich or evol/amy's burrito with a small can of v8 and a small in their own juice can of fruit, and water with EmergenC and snack home is usually a handful of raisins and cashews. I have a 2 hour each way commute to the mountain and if I don't have a hearty snack to come home with I will end up stopping for bad food. I also keep protein bars in the car in case the roads are bad and that drive turns into 3-5 hours. If I forget lunch (known to happen since I leave the house no later than 5:30) I usually do a baked potato with veggie chili on top or thai curry.

I start off with a breakfast of oatmeal with bananas and berries.
For lunch I eat spaghetti with meat sauce in the hut on the mountain. Drink a large apple juice spritzer to fill up my glycogen reserves.
I eat a *small* amount of trail mix for a snack.
Dinner is usually something small from the Turkish restaurant -- a lot of salad a bit of meat and yogurt sauce.
This will bring me to the top of my calorie allowance for the day, but that's fine, considering all the exercise, and I don't feel starved.

Came back to say that the plan yesterday wasn't so great... we had homemade pizza (which was good), and trail mix (which was calorific). I didn't have my apple slices, and I was hungry, so I I ate too much trail mix. I'll do better next time--I'll remember the apples!

We bring our own food, too. For the kids, I do bring higher calorie stuff like trail mix and homemade cocoa. For myself, I've learned from a friend--bring things like apple slices, and make sure to drink plenty of water.

I normally have my usual breakfast : milk, coffee, plus a croissant and a Latte when I'm right on the slope.
Some meat and veggies at lunch.
Mixed vegetables and fruit at dinner, and maybe some chees and/or tuna fish for more proteins.

People at my local resort tailgate for lunch on the weekends. So it's grill food plus lots of snacks. Even the healthier stuff packs a lot of calories - dried fruit and granola bars. There's also usually beer.
This year, I'm going to try to bring soups in a thermos and cook more healthy meals on my camp stove.

I am big fan of bringing my own lunch and snacks. Most ski hills have locker rooms or places to store your backpack while you are sking (or leave it in the car). So my usual skiing day would be:
breakfast - cereal, or a muffin, toast etc at home and a coffee on the drive to the hill
Snacks - put some granola bars in your pockets and eat on the chair lift - you don't need to stop and get all your gear off that way!
Lunch - sandwhiches, crackers and cheese, soup in a thermos. Grab a coffee or a hot chocolate from the cafeteria to add some extra warmth!

Pack some other snacks for the drive home, and some water in the car too!

I agree with Rachel. I usually have a hearty bowl of oatmeal in the morning before heading out to the slopes. I also take a Luna bar or Kashi Go Lean bar with me in my pocket, and sometimes eat that on the lift mid morning for an extra boost. I also can delay lunch a little bit that way and avoid the noontime crowds.
If I can, I big a bag lunch of a turkey or ham sandwich or wrap, maybe some chips (100 calorie bag), and I usually drink water. Hot Cocoa is also a great idea, since it doesn't have that many calories and has good nutrient value. Or maybe safe the cocoa for after skiing, to help with those post ski day cravings.
Hope that helps. I am jealous because I have not been out this year. I live in the midwest and I'm not crazy about my ski options here and must plan a trip or two out west to get my ski fix. Didn't really happen last winter. emoticon

Before going I have a big bowl of oatmeal. While there I down a hot chocolate. For lunch I usually have a hearty soup and/or hearty salad. I don't like to eat too much skiing because then I feel off balance.

Today was my 3rd trip up to the ski area for this ski season, and my 3rd attempt to live by my SparkPeople plan and also be a skier. The result - disgusting. Between the cold and the effort, my body seems to crave every morsel of food in sight and by the end of the day I am - pleasantly - tired and completely lacking willpower. I topped it all off with polishing off some of the Xmas goodies when I got home. Ug!

I would love to hear what other people are eating at ski areas, on the way up, on the way home, snacks -- whatever. Looking for inspiration and ideas. Thanks!
