I use gu in cold weather.

Just keep 1-2 in the chest pocket of my base layer, replace the one I take with one from my thigh pocket.

Stays nice and gu-ey.
The mountains - whose summits reach or exceed arbitrary thresholds for elevation and prominence - are calling and I must go.

I use Perpetuem Solids (Hammer) or Shot Bloks (Clif). Neither will freeze.

I recommend the Caffe Latte flavor.

^^ Yeah, the cafe latte is pretty tasty. That said, I've never had a GU freeze.
