    I get that. You and I may have this stuff but the others may not.
    My wifes family are Green Bay Packers tragics The fans of that American code football team have a reputation for huge car park picnics before each game, I've always wondered why we skiers don't get together to organise similar meals.

    My lunch / snacks etc goes in the two front pockets of my jacket. If I pack too much in it looks like I need a bra:eek:

    Once caught a gondola ride with a French family. As soon as they were in the gondola they brought out a baguette from somewhere, butter, cheese, ham etc, sliced up the baguette, made sandwiches. The whole family had eaten by top station. No downtime from the slopes, and solved the problem of how to find a table for lunch;) We don’t have any gondolas in Oz (thredbo soon). However, I believe the ride on the pretty valley chair at Perisher is probably longer than any gondola ride;)

    I bet that if i left a jar of Rollmops at the first table from the top of the stairs above Avos ( Thredbo) at first lifts it would still be there for smoko.

    Correct!

    I bet if you offered people $100 to try one, you’d still have your $100 at the end of the day

    You may have your Chardy and Sagiovese for lunch but there is nothing better than pickled fish to bring on a hankering for a good Shiraz.

    If you like Japanese curry you should try Hayashi rice!

    For years a mate and I would ski first lift to last lift on a Killer Python and a Gatorade each. Does that put us in the foodie ranks?

    For less than $50 on ebay you can buy a '12 v portable oven'. They are handy things. Couple of pies or sausage rolls take about an hour to heat up. You could heat anything up in them if you put them in foil trays. As for hot choccy whilst your on ebay buy a couple of 12v travel cups for about $10 each. Fill with milk and milo and half an hour later you have hot choccy.

    Oz - unlikely to get a decent lunch on the hill
    Austria - unlikely to get a bad lunch on the hill ;)

    The other day when shopping I decided a simple tea of cooked chook and fresh bread rolls would be good. As I don't like coles cooked chooks I grabbed a small cheap pre stuffed raw one. It fitted perfectly in my cheapy ebay 12v oven (also available in camping stores). A few hours later I had the most perfectly cooked chook that had happened with no input from me apart from removing the bag and tossing it in. Hubby ate nearly the whole thing himself and reckons I should cook in it more often. Juicy, tender. Just not real brown until I put it under the grill for a couple of minutes but that was a 'look' thing more than cooking. So if you want hot chook sangas just put a small chook in one when you leave home in the morning and be done for lunch. :D

    I should mention it kept all those lovely juices in which I of course saved. Hubby had a spicy Asian style soup with it the next day.
