Northern Tier Food


If you are a summer 2023 crew, your dietary restrictions will be communicated via the roster function in the regsitration system.  Once your name is added to the roster, you will get notification to accept disclaimers AND edit your profile.  At that time, please make sure your needs are adequately spelled out. 

  • If we can meet those needs, we will notify you and add the additional charges to your crews registration. 
  • If we cannot meet your needs, we will also notify you that you will need to bring your own meals.


For those that notifity us prior to arrival, we provide a variety of substitutions for the following.  There is an addtional $75 fee for Northern Tier to substitute for these diet needs:

  • Nut-Free
  • Gluten Free
  • Vegetarian (or meat limiting diets)
  • Lactose Intolerance
  • Soy Protein
  • Egg 

If your diet needs fall outside of the above categories, you will need to provide your own substitutions or meals.  Northern Tier is not able to accomodate for diets outside of the one’s listed above.

Northern Tier will have a variety of backpackers meals and allergen free snacks available for purchase in the trading post, however, you know your needs and what works for you best.  If you can pack and bring your own snacks, that is always a great option.
