I searched and found a lot of people talking about taking protein supplements for lifting, and other sports. But are any of you taking it specifically for skiing? I am using a whey shake at the moment, because I am going to the gym a fair bit, but in a few weeks, I will switch to just skiing (where I ski doesn't really have a gym), but am thinking about taking some with me to take when I have particularly long days on snow, maybe some bars for snacks in the afternoons.
This is mainly because I feel like a lot of the time when I ski, I don't eat enough protein, and my muscles don't recover as quickly as they could. I ski for 6+ hours a day for 30+ days at a time, so often recovery can be tough.
From a recent thread I know people will say 'I just eat ramen and I'm fine' but I know that doesn't work for me. I am probably already going to take some with me and see how it goes, but am just wondering if anyone does the same.
