Kate’s Real Food and the National Ski Patrol have joined forces to provide patrollers access to the best tasting, hand-mixed organic energy bars available on the market. Kate Schade’s years of skiing in the backcountry around the Tetons and Jackson Hole means Kate and her team understand what’s needed to stay powered all day, even in the worst conditions, which are often what patrollers are working in, day in and day out.
Kate’s Real Food knows what patrollers need most:
â€¢ Long lasting energy
â€¢ Great taste
â€¢ Crunchy-chewy-crispy texture
â€¢ Won’t freeze
â€¢ All-natural ingredients
â€¢ Balance of protein, carbs and good fats
“We are really excited to partner with Kate’s Real Food as the official energy bar supplier of the National Ski Patrol,” said Tim White, NSP Executive Director. “Kate has been working and playing in the mountains for a long time, where she’s perfected the healthy energy-filled snack for those who work outside in the worst conditions.” White continued, “I’ve not come across an energy bar that tastes better anywhere, and we’re proud to be able to offer Kate’s Real Food energy bars to our patrollers, continuing to make every effort to ensure their ability to perform safely on the job.â€
All Kate’s Real Food products are hand mixed in the shadow of the Tetons and feature all-natural and organic, unprocessed ingredients so you get the best of the nutrients and their benefits. Five flavors, including two peanut-free flavors and one bar that’s peanut-free, dairy-free and gluten-free.
“The NSP is a perfect match for Kate’s Real Food,” echoed Kate Schade, Owner and Bar Genius at Kate’s Real Food. “The heart and soul of the NSP matches the heart and soul of Kate’s bars. We design our products to keep people powered up for outdoor play, especially in the mountains.â€ Schade continued, â€œHaving been a skier since I was a kid, I’ve developed a keen appreciation for the job that patrollers do and the gnarly conditions they have to work in, and we know having a good energy supply is essential.â€
