They don't need to cater to us not rich guys, but we don't need to love it. The fact that all the other resorts do it is cool, and Vail is just not as cool as them
Don't me wrong... i don't agree with or support everything Vail resorts does. However.... not being able to reheat my sandwich in THEIR facility is not very high on my bitch list

We've got it pretty good up here. My sister/brother inlaw live in Durango and its $1,950 for a seasons pass (per person) at Telluride

Telluride, Colorado | 2011-12 Season Passes

Great mtn but I can buy a lot of beer and burgers with $1350 difference between that and my Vail resorts pass.. just sayin

not like i'm saving $1350 though, 4-600$ is my limit and thats with months of saving. If my only option was a $1950 pass I would just have to stick with ruby hill lol

For a hot sammy at lunch...at home, wrap your homemade sammy in foil, start up your car and put it on the exhause manifold, it will be done by the time you finish that first cold beer. You can also have hot cimmy buns in the morning...pull in to the lot, throw them on and by the time you got your boots and jacket on they will be done.

I have been hitting up a-basin recently and have been real excited to find they have a microwave in the top of the base lodge. Well I headed down the mozart at keystone to labonte's cabin to hopefully microwave up my sammy ( lol@ rachel ray). Well turns out they didn't have one there. That't not what got me ticked off however. I don't expect the resorts to cater to poor guys like myself but I do expect them to show some respect or customer service... I looked around for a second only to realize there wasn't a microwave in sight so I proceeded to ask the girl at the register if she knew where one was. Her rude response to me and I quote "no we don't have microwave here ?!?!? or ANYWHERE on the mountain" I know from the statement it doesn't seem that bad but the tone of her voice and the poop look on her face while she was saying it was if she was trying to say "no we don't have any microwaves you cheap poor bastard just buy a $10 burger why don't you" Was kinda funny though how she said "sawwy" in an obvious attempt to redeem her bitchy-ness. Needless to say, keystone has some epic/ awesome runs but it just isn't worth dealing with the rent a cop yellow jackets or the crap I get because I would like to just heat my meal up. Needless to say F@#$ VAIL RESORTS! I'll be buying an A-basin or Loveland pass next year even if it means less terrain... at least I won't pass out because of low blood sugar >.<
I suppose you could just buy a power inverter for 15 bucks, then find a cheap microwave and plug it into your cigarette lighter, then you could have a warm sammy anytime you want. I'm guessing you could pick up a cheap dorm room micro for <30 bucks...could be a viable option if it is really important to you-granted you would have to go back to the parking lot to eat.

for the money he would spend buying a power inverter big enough to run the microwave and buying the microwave, yhe could buy a seasons worth of 10$ burgers.

I've certainly not heard of that solution before.

For the money I also spent on my waxing and tuning gear I could have had fresh tunes all season long, but this way I can tune next season too and the season after that and so on for only like $20 in wax (plus I like my wax and tune jobs better . So yeh it would be an investment the first year but then it would pay off in the long run since I don't plan on quitting anytime soon.

(LOL @ that tiny usb microwave)

(whoever said I would have to walk back to the parking lot; only breck sucks to go back to your car, or I suppose keystone too if you got there late or followed the air traffic control wand dudes)
