Someone I have always been inspired by is fellow @clifbar ambassador @hilareenelson. Right now, she and @jimwmorrison and team are on a neighboring peak, Lhotse, to ski one of the most beautiful unskied couloirs in the world. Follow them on their journey through their handles or hashtag #lhotseski18.Before I went on my first high altitude ski mountaineering trip five years ago, I asked Hilaree about her favorite things to eat at altitude. She told me, @clifbar gels and Pringles. I took her advice and climbed and skied my first 6000m peak. I love gels because they are easy to consume at altitude when you are not producing much saliva, and the sugars are easily absorbed. Thanks for the tip Hilaree! Photo: @nickkalisz
