    Go ahead and call me cheap, LOL!!! I don't care if it is ski resort pricing, $9.00 for a burger, just because it is on mountain is more than I am willing to pay. Throw in some fries with it, I might. I can get lunch at the Brew Pub, on the access road, where a steak and cheese sub with fries is about $10.00 or so (Gotta put a plug in here, one of my favorite meals there). The feeling with the resort is that they don't care if they lose some sales due to high prices, they'll sell enough at those high prices that they'll still do alright.

    lovin life,

    $9 at a ski resort is cheap. I paid $22 for a slice of pizza and bottle of water at Winter Park.

    Since retiring the Patrol jacket after 25 years (and loosing the 50% discount), we do NOT pay for anything...
    Hot water is still free, so we bring Oatmeal packs, Ramen Cups, cheese/crackers and sandwiches

    $9 is cheap, based on all the complaining on the NEP FB group on SR food pricing. Actually been hearing a Cheeseburger is running $14 this year just for the sandwich. Based on that, SR's pricing is on par or higher than prices I saw at Vail this weekend. And need I say the quality of offerings at Vail were superior.

I've been to a couple places that don't just stick it to you price wise (Mt Abrams, Ragged).
    Cheapest burger at Killington Peak lodge is $17 https://cms.killington.com/sites/kil...eak_8.5x11.pdf

    Throw some lunch meat, french bread, boursin cheese, bag of favorite chips, a few bananas or clementines or a bunch of grapes, maybe a yogurt, definitely some nice dark chocolate, and gatorade in a soft cooler. Takes five minutes. So easy to do! Toss cooler outside to keep cool. Lunch comes and you grab it and are happily eating quality stuff while the lunch buyers are waiting in the checkout line to overpay for their lousy chicken fingers and a five dollar drink.

    Buying food on the mountain is a choice, and a lazy one. The ski areas literally bank on you being lazy. So easy to bring a much better lunch than you can buy. Stop complaining about the prices -- you choose to pay them.

    I've had burger and fries lunches at the new KPL. Totally worth it IMO.
    If I were paying for a family I'd probably feel differently.

    Last time at Sunday river the day before thanksgiving we barbecued in the parking lot. Same for K. Packed lunches the other ski days this year. A few times a year I will eat at a ski area but only by myself or with the wife. I will in Utah on the guys trip.

    Folks, back to actual skiing! I skinned up to the peak lodge yesterday and skied back down, under the lift, of course, to show everyone on the lift that I had earned first tracks!! With all the rain, the river did a decent job grooming up the trails that had man made snow on them. Anything that didn't have man made was in pretty sad shape and most of them were closed. More rain yesterday afternoon, so I don't quite know what to expect, but I'm sure the river groomers will do their best.
    lovin life,

    Bob
