Certified Ski Guide Shane Robinson is a man of refined culinary tastes. He and his wife subscribe to not one, but two CSA (community supported agriculture) boxes which keep their strategic kale and beet reserves strong in the winter and crisper overflowing with heirloom lettuce, crunchy cucumbers, and all manner of delicious vegetables in the summer. In fact, they are even a CSA pick-up site for Local Roots Farm; such is their commitment to fresh, locally sourced sustenance.
For this inaugural edition of “What’s in Your Snack Bag” where we take a deep dive into the snack bags of the guide staff, we could pick no finer subject than Shane. Without further ado, here’s what bounty lies within his pack for a day of ski guiding or teaching an AIARE course.
Shane’s Snack Bag:
I think it’s about 18oz of tea (Licorice Root in case you were wondering – good for the lungs). That’s about it for an average ski day. If I start running low and I melt snow with the hot tea.
On bigger days I go with some leftovers usually (lamb meatballs and kale today) or a Sammie. On smaller days I skip the “lunch” and just snack all day. (Then devour a burger post ski 🙂 And there are two PCC oatmeal cookies there, btw 🙂
Always eat your best food. That way you are always eating your best food. It’s pretty much my life philosophy 😉
