4 Day Muir Summit Climb Meal Package

4 Day Muir Summit Climb Meal Package

About This Meal Package
Climbing Mt Rainier burns about 8000-11,000 calories, depending on your sex, size and fitness level. Prior training will help your body utilize stored calories as a supplement to what you're eating. This is good! It's not unusual to have a low appetite during the climb itself. Eating small amounts of foods high in carbohydrates and drinking fluids on a set schedule provides glucose to your hard working muscles. Eating small amounts frequently also may reduce the chance of an upset stomach.

Whittaker Mountaineering's meal packages provide the recommended ratio of 15% protein, 65% carbohydrate, and 20% fat. These foods are generally lightweight, tasty and travel well in a pack. Calorie content per meal package ranges from 2,800 to 4,000, depending on if it's a training/school day or summit climb day.

Good and well worth it

I found the food to be good quality and tasty, the people making it were cool, especially under some very busy periods, cost was not a factor, the fact I didn't have to hassle with managing, cooking and cleaning for meals is well worth it. I would highly recommend this option.

Use Situation: this option took care of 90%of my food needs for our 4 day trip

The last thing you want to think about when climbing Mt. Rainier for the first time is how many calories you are taking in, what and how much food to pack, etc. The meal plan has plenty of great food packed and ready when you need it most.

This was a good decision for me, as I was traveling from the east coast to do a Rainier climb - it was great that this was already taken care of. The food was good and the quantity just right.

This food package is perfect. I just brought along a few of my favorite carb-protein bars in addition.

The convenience offered by this package was substantial. The amount of food was actually pretty over the top. There is no way that a normal person could consume the amount of food they included. I think that I ate maybe half of the stuff by the time I had finished the 4 day climb. The sandwiches, pizza and breakfasts were solid but nothing amazing. The grill food is pretty good, but again nothing amazing. In all seriousness though, all I was really looking for were calories and the food certainly provided what I needed. I could have gotten most of the items I needed from a grocery store for about 1/3 the price but with this package I didn't have to shop myself and didn't have to spent time packaging items to go into my pack. That made the price worth it to me.

This was one of the best decisions I made... It would have been tough to figure out my food situation since I was traveling cross country for the climb. The meal plan had great variety and there was MORE than enough food for me for the duration of my trip. The breakfasts at Whittakers were great and the dinners at Base Camp are fantastic! Seriously, best turkey burger I ever had.

It was nice to have the food prepared because it gave me time to focus on other aspects of preparation. It was particularly helpful for me because I flew in from out of town and did not have time to locate a supermarket and get appropriate food for the climb. (Ashford, WA is, at most, a tiny hamlet. The general store has very little.) Yes, it costs more than buying it yourself, but it is cheaper if you consider the cost of an extra suitcase on a flight.

It was nice to have all the snacks pulled together for me, but a quick trip to the grocery store would have yielded the same for about 1/4 the cost. There was more than enough to eat though, with lots of variety.

The food was convenient and plentiful. The variety is good. Overall a bit pricey but it takes the guesswork out especially for first-time climbers.
