Some people dream of escaping to a warm, sandy beach… Others can’t wait for the temperatures to drop, the snow to fly, and the trails to open. Snowmobiling is a fast-paced winter sport that requires skill… and plenty of fuel. So what are the best trail snacks for snowmobiling? Let’s dig in.

Power Your Passion with These Snacks for Snowmobiling 

Without further ado, here are our favorite snacks for snowmobiling. 

  1. Nut Butter

High-quality nut butters (including good old peanut butter) provides plenty of protein and healthy fats. It’s also highly caloric; when you’re spending out in the cold, this is an important consideration. Make it easy on yourself by getting some grab-and-go single-serve packages. You can eat them on their own or pair them with some crackers, a foldable, portable whole wheat tortilla, or apple slices (which you can also make easy on yourself by opting for the little single-serve packages available at grocery and box stores).

On a related note, PB&Js are a great trail snack. Make a few up before you head out for instant satiety and nutrition. Be careful to choose all-natural products without the extra sugar.

  1. Tuna and Crackers

Need a lightweight, compact snack? Tuna may not come to mind at first but it’s a perfect solution that’s full of protein. Instead of cans, opt for foil packages, which are incredibly portable. All you have to do is open up a pouch and enjoy. You can add some crackers in a crush proof container or put some in a whole wheat wrap for a complete mini-meal on the go. 

Today, you can find all sorts of fun flavors, such as lemon herb, ranch, sriracha, buffalo, and more. Give ‘em a try!

  1. Trail Mix 

Feeling ambitious? Well, too bad, because making your own healthy trail mix is super easy and fast. Dump the following into a bowl: nuts (e.g. peanuts, cashews, walnuts, almonds), seeds, dried fruit bits, dark chocolate chips, and mini pretzels for a low-fat crunch. You can add some seasonings, like chili, paprika, Cajun spice, cayenne, garlic, etc., if you’re feeling spicy. Keep yourself warm out there! Fill some zipper bags with your trail treasure and get out there.

  1. Snickers

We’re all entitled to a treat now and again. If your sweet tooth is calling, indulge it with a Snickers. Yes, it’s candy, but it does have some nutty protein, healthy fat, and satiety built in. It’s a great, easy snack for snowmobiling. Plus, if you forget to plan ahead, you can pick one up when you stop for gas.
