Burgers are most definitely worth the wait, always busy, can see why.
The new chair to replace the double and triple can't come soon enough. Will be Vail's first mountain eatery development, as the plans had a new restaurant Cafe at the base.
Will be good to see what they come up with. One can only hope its not the same rubbish served elsewhere.....
The same applies to people of whichever sex attracts you.
There's no restaurant planned with the new 6-seater chair. The new bottom station will be further down slope so people can still use Powder Inn (bottom of the double chair) and then ski to the bottom station over a new bridge that's also part of the DA.
Wow thanks not sure where I got that from then.
Very disappointing and a wasted opportunity to build something at the top or bottom
Perisher food is a joke
...Apart from the burgers, the non-alcoholic apple cider, the fish and chips, the carrot cake (and likely just about everything else) at the fine establishment this thread is discussing
(aside: What have the Romans ever done for us )
(further aside: The food at Brunelli's is good too, as are the kebabs at Kebabz)
Perisher (Vail) food is a bit of a joke.
Never get to use my discount.....
However the offerings from other places are ok ..ish
My understanding is that the original plans included building a whole new lodge type building, slightly uphill from where the base of the double is now. It was going to have decking and outdoor seating, as well as inside service. Something similar to mid station, but with much more extensive decking. I think that basically got put on the back burner to expedite the DA process for the 6 pack. Getting approval for everything in one go was in the too hard basket I imagine.
There are still plans afoot to do something. However, this will be along the lines of “renovating” the existing powder inn. Adding outside decking, at the level of the current upper floor, if the rumour mill is to be believed
I’ll add my voice to that of @Ted Harper and ask for insider information about opening hours for Alpine/Eyre cafe over spring, summer and autumn. Itching to do a little bush-walking (and maybe a burger could replenish the energy ). @SMSkier ?
Steve tells me he is planning to open Boxing day, as per usual. When open, it is usually 10-2. He puts flags out on the road when open. One day a week he closes to play golf, wednesdays I think?
Normally stillwells at Charlottes open over the christmas school holidays as well
Just so happens that I know the answer ....
Steve will open Boxing Day. I confirmed that just now
Will be there for sure - it’s an annual event for us. Happy to catch up when your walking. Our crew walk somewhere up the mountains at least once a week.
Sounds good! Plans are to head to Qld (borders permitting) for a couple of weeks after Christmas with my lot. Spring and mid-Jan onwards I will be looking to the mountains every now and then. Will message you and other locals in advance re a walk/catch-up
I got mine early today, didn't even give me a number.
Wash your mouth out with soap.
Eyre is excellent, Kebabz is excellent, they wouldn't let me in The Pub this year so I can't comment there but in my previous experience Mr Chan's is also excellent. Oh and Aldo's is excellent too.
Excellent is Katsu curry for 800 yen and a beer from a vending machine...
Or a 700 yen Ramen that tastes better than any you've had in fancy restaurants in Sydney.
You do realise I live in Canberra, right?
Quite like the Dock,Bentspoke and Pedlar...
Who cares about the food. I just LOVE the music at Eyre Cafe.
Waits for boomer reference.
There's much better food at Perisher than Alpine Eyre. The burgers aren't very good. Good burgers have the salad on to of the patty.
You need to ski in Italy. Much better on mountain food than Japan. On mountain food in Japan is their equivalent of our on mountain food
Any other of the big resorts in Aus has much better food than Perisher.
If you then look at Japan, Euro Etc it makes Perisher even more laughable.
As for Italy, yes, wow
This is where being able to rotate something through 180 degrees is a useful skill.
Philistine, then the salad is in the wrong order and the cheese is under the patty.
Cheese under the patty?
If you turn a burger upside down to put the salad ontop of the patty the cheese will go under the patty.
No burger for you!
bottom bun / dressing/ tomato/ lettuce/ beef patty with cheese/ onion slice or grilled onions/ top bun
Wrong, wrong wrong! No burger for you!
It should be:
Bottom bun / patty / cheese / onion / tomato / lettuce / dressing / top bun.
No you're wrong
That's so wrong. Shit American dressing, no BBQ sauce and worst of all, no beetroot FFS.
Your wrong two.
My preference is (from the ground up):
Bottom bun / lettuce / tomato / patty / cheese / onion / pickle / sauce / top bun.
Lettuce down low stops the patty's juices from damaging the bottom bun’s structural integrity.
Also the burgers at Eyre are great.
Beetroot on a burger is like pineapple on a pizza
Doubled with bacon..Jindy van style
Is that all you've got?
Do you even eat beetroot bro?
No you're wrong!
You're wrong three!
All this talk of food. I mean who goes up the hill to eat?
OK, maybe the Italians, the French and most of the Europeans, but apart from them
My solution to the poor food choices? I haven’t bought any food on the hill for the last 3 seasons. I do buy coffees, drinks and the occasional chocolate bar, but thats it. Rather eat the stuff I bring myself
*i'm the same.
Didn't spend a cent on the hill this year..Not even a beer!
@rocketboy is the master. His ski jacket is like a mobile 7/11 store I think the pockets are like the TARDIS,
Comes from living in jindy in a TARDIS .....
Well I spent some money on everyones behalf
No wonder another hill doesn’t want to sell season passes
Majority of normal visitors
When I ski overseas I do eat on the hill. However, there they have good choices of food, including healthy options. You can get served reasonably quickly and get a seat. I can dream of such options at Perisher However, I would never choose where to ski based on the food. I don’t choose where to ride my bike or where to bushwalk based in food services either.
