I am an avid skier and photographer in Salt Lake City. When an old ski buddy from Ohio and I reconnected via facebook I had a plan to try to ensure that we would not be missing any epic powder turns due to fatigue or problems with the altitude. I quickly ordered some Acli-Mate online and it arrived the day before his plane landed. Minutes after he got in the car I handed him a water bottle with a serving of the grape Acli-Mate. We both drank our Acli-Mate while we shared stories from back in the day. Within less than an hour after picking him up we were in our ski gear at 10,000 feet at the top of the Collins lift at Alta. We skied hard for the rest of the day while it continued to dump the greatest snow on earth.
We both woke up early the next day eager to ski the fresh snow with no complaints of sore muscles. With Acli-Mate and a big breakfast, we skied even harder the second day making multiple laps in area that we had to hike a boot pack to earn our turns. Thanks to the Acli-Mate we hiked and skied this area for most of the afternoon. My Ohio ski buddy charged hard all day long. He said it was the best ski trip of his life.
