6 Day Muir Expedition Skills Seminar Meal Package

6 Day Muir Expedition Skills Seminar 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.

I found the food package to be quite good. I would have preferred a ~little~ less gorp, and more hot drink packets. Plus, it would be nice to have a few condiments for the drinks (i.e. sugar, dry creamer, etc.) and entrees. One of the other participants on our trip was savvy enough to bring a bottle of Tabasco Sauce, and this was a real lifesaver! But you can't beat the convenience... it was just great to have one less thing to worry about getting ready to head up the mountain, especially when traveling from the Midwest.
