I have skied with just about everything in my pockets to snack on over the years and have had some real winners and some real losers.

Trader Joe's has some sesame honey almonds that are a great quick bite on the lift, but I still keep going back to my all time favorite, the sandwich.

Clif bars are good if you keep them in an inside pocket (hard clif bars are bad) and you split them with a lift mate.

I have also found that skiing with a hydration pack makes all the difference in that binge factor. I don't tend to slam the first beer if I'm well hydrated to begin with.

Good luck!

Even as a past ski hill employee and mountain town resident I would fall into the beer and nachos after skiing routine. It's just so easy to do!
I did try to limit myself to once a week though!

I am a fan of taking snacks with me - like granola bars and water so I can eat as the day goes on. THis way I avoid the binging after skking.

I've been following more or less this regime on a skiing day :
A normal breakfast (coffe, milk, cereals)
Some healthy snacks at hand
Vegetable soups for lunch (in the Alps you'll find them even in very small huts)
A light dinner
I was never hungry and had enough energy to go for 6/8 hours skiing per day at 5, nor did I feel I needed to eat anything else.

I have to say, if I was at a resort skiing/staying on vacation, the eating might be harder -- the temptation for apres ski beers and bar food would be a killer for me. Since I'm a townie coming to ski, I never drink til I'm home, and then I'm too tired & hungry to bother. I have seen some success since my first post by adding a specialK bar in my jacket for a snack and also being prepared with ready made healthy snacks -- hummus & mini carrots are good -- when I get home.

I'm wondering how much to eat through our 8 day ski holiday, I'd be happy to lose a few pounds but need enough energy to keep up with my teens. I could easily eat too much!
Just hoping I've done enough at the gym in preparation but at least I'm lighter than I've been for 10 years-got to be better for the knees!

I struggle a lot with staying in my calorie limit on ski days. Right now, I'm trying to focus on eating healthy foods when I get home, so even if I'm over my range, at least, I'm sating myself and meeting nutrition needs. It's also really hard to stay hydrated when it's cold out, so try drinking a lot when you get home.

As for time, I take my total time minus lunch, divided by 3 for more intense days and 4 for less intense days. I think that helps take out lift lines, lifts, and stops on the slopes.

I like Luna Bars...Blueberry Bliss or Lemon something are pretty good, but not as sweet as Granola Bars. Laos, Odwalla bars are also pretty good for energy and appetite, but not like cookies. The Luna Bars have a little less calories than the Odwalla Bars. Hope it helps.

I think I have been falling behind in the calories and I get super hungry. I don't like to pack granola bars, b/c if I have them in the house, I tend to eat them like "treats". Maybe I can find one I don't like too much! Is there a recommendation for a good slope snack that's easy to carry in my pocket but not too sweet that might help curb my apres-ski hungry.

As for recording activity days, I just take total time, then try to subtract lift line times and snack/lunch time and then I go with the remaining time as my "ski" time. It's very rough.

My problem is the burgers you can smell before you even get to the powder house!

Do you record your activity minutes for ski days? if so, how do you calculate it?

what have you done today to make yourself proud?

I have the same problem when I get home...even on days I'm not outdoors all day. I wonder if maybe you're not eating enough and fueling your body enough during the day. Therefore, when you get home, you're famished and eat everything in sight. Just staying warm and being outdoors all day burns lots of calories. So make sure you eat enough during the day, and maybe your cravings won't be so bad when you get home.

Hello folks. I am new to this group. I live 16 miles from Smugglers Notch Ski Resort in Vermont so my family and I try to go once a weekend. I have a history of throwing my good food habits out the window on ski days. Even when I pack healthy, fiber-rich, protein rich snacks, I still want to eat my way through the house when I get home. Any suggestions from fellow skiers? I am skiing with capable 6 & 8 year olds-- so I'm not tearing it up on the weekends. Just something about being outdoors all day that makes me want to eat. Would love to hear what's been successful for some of you. Thanks!
