We used PeakEats to support our successful Bugaboo climbing trip this summer and I was impressed with the convenience and quality of the meals. I recommend Peak Eats meals for the following reasons;
Light weight - The trek up to camp was gruelling and pack weight was a serious concern for our success. PeakEats are super light weight.
Conveinent - after 12 hours on a summit bid and staggering back into camp exhausted, the prospect of preparing a meal is less than appealing. Our established routine was that first climber back to camp was to get the water boiling in the pot, throw in a PeakEats dinner, cover and let stand for the prescribed 30 minutes. in the meantime, the climber can change out of wet gear into dry camp gear, sort out equipment and receive the other climbers into camp. After the 30 minutes, dinner is served, then a cup of tea and off to bed. Super simple, efficient and great for moral.
Quality - The flavour and freshness of the meals were a nice surprise from the usual heat and serve meals that tend to lack flavour and are mushy. I had a Chili left over from our trip and I served it for dinner to my two kids. The fact that they ate it all is a testament to how good it was.
Locally Produced - Supporting the local economy is always a good thing. We ordered our meals as a package on line and picked them up on our way through Canmore. PeakEats has a great pick-up station that has very flexible hours.
