The signs are all there. Flakes are accumulating in the Cascades, the sun sets on Seattle at 4:18PM, and egg nog lattes have made their inglorious return to Starbucks. Winter is coming! To kick off this most excellent of seasons, our first 8-Day Denali Prep Course is slated to snowshoe off into the very early of sunset of Rainier next weekend.

When preparing for a mountaineering course, food can seem like an afterthought – a hastily grabbed pile of freeze dried meals from your local REI.   Don’t thread down this primrose path of salty convenience.  With just a little bit of planning, you can curate a tasty menu from offerings at your local grocery store that’s twice as delicious and half as expensive as a bunch of bags of Mountain House.  Plus, real food is going to be way easier on your stomach.   Trust us.
