Keystone... yuppy (rich) only ?

So I've been riding keystone as well as other resorts for 10 years now and today was the first time I packed something to eat at keystone. I brought a microwave sandwich because I'm a poor college student and can't afford a $10 burger and I'm tired of energy bars and cold sandwiches. 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 >.<

Keystone has about 100 average runs, epic is pushing it. I've been there alot this year and their park has always been good, but their natural terrain is average at best. Doesn't suprise me there was no microwave, all the non-Vail resorts have one lol (Copper, WP, the Love, A-Bay). Its just as expensive, but fucking delicious, try Jersey Boys Deli left at the first light when you come into Dillon heading back to i-70. Its fucking bomb.

yeh epic is pushing it but I grew up there so it seems epic because I have nothing better to compare it with. Really hope to try some Japan and Canadian Resorts some day as well as Silverton and Wolf Creek. Thx for the tip on Jersey Boys +1, have to check it out next time.

also went to ski-hooky day at loveland on the 8th and had a blast, snow wasn't top notch but the weather was and indeed they had a microwave haha, lately I've been bringing the porta-grill... Funniest thing ever to see some people offer you a beer for a burger and others give you dirty looks like ur a hobo =D -back to the shadows of the forums I go before some keystone fanboy comes and bashes me hehe

I'm pretty sure Breck has microwaves in the cabin on top of 6 chair and I think I seen some at Vail too but I may be making that one up.

The expensive food prices are the off shoot of cheap (relatively) season passes. $600 for unlimited riding at Vail, Beaver, Keystone, Breck, and Abasin and people bitch about the lack of a microwave

Could be worse... you could pay $400 for season pass at fucking Lab in NY... short season, shit snow, small hill but all the microwave's you could ever hope for

Full Season Passes

Good and fair point, but I'm not sure affordable season passes are gonna make us agree with and like everything Vail Resorts is up to.

They make enough money on people who don't buy a 10$ burger for lunch, but actually get the expensive items and drop $200 for their family.

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

or I could get the midweek loveland pass for $259 and get access to 1500 acres and a microwave lawl, or stick with epic pass(8k+ acres), get a power inverter, and a tiny microwave. Either way your right it is better then places on the east coast or utah that charge $1,000+ for a pass to a single resort. Honestly I wouldn't care If I didn't have blood sugar problems I'm usually to busy having fun to eat anyways but my body disagrees.
