What’s in Your Snack Bag? Backcountry Ski Edition

auto draft

Alpine Ascents guide and woman about the Ouray Ice Park, Brooke Warren, is a backcountry snack maestro.  Known for creating a delicious symphony of flavors and textures, Brooke is on top of the nosh game.  If you are about to embark on a day of backcountry skiing or questing up waterfall ice and need a bit of culinary inspiration – look no further. Life is too short (and dental work too expensive) to gnaw on frozen Clif bars.

Brooke’s Snack Bag
Bengal Spice tea, some nut butters (have to be kept warm), a couple snack bars, leftover pizza and vegan jerky. The one thing I was missing was something sweet (I usually like to include Starburst or ginger chews), which I can eat while on the uphill to give me a boost of energy.

Snack Philosophy
My snack philosophy is to bring a variety or textures and flavors: crunchy, smooth, sweet, salty. I also like to bring enough small snacks so I can easily munch on something every time we stop to transition or take a break. That ensures I never bonk and have energy throughout the entire day.
