    Snonuts Pty Ltd has been awarded two of the iconic restaurants, Maggie’s {now renamed Blue Brumby) located adjacent to the foot of Towers Chairlift & Dicky Knees located in the Ruined Castle precinct. In conjunction with the newly acquired Cloud 9 & Frying Pan Inn by Traverse Alpine Group, Snonuts will bring new life to the ski area eateries.

    Directors Debbie Howie & Janette Lawson are thrilled to be taking on these venues.
    “We are so excited, both restaurants have huge potential and we’re going to bring wonderful offerings to guests and staff,” says Howie
    “We will transform Blue Brumby into an Asian Fusion café serving Indian Curries, Japanese style offerings plus specials and a wide range of quick easy takeaway options,” says Lawson “
    “Dicky Knees will be a Mexican Taqueria serving Burritos, Quesadillas, Nachos, Tacos with Margaritas, Mexican Beer Corona and a selection of wines. Of course, there will also be tasty snacks and easy to eat meals in addition to the Mexican theming.
    “The menu will also incorporate their famous Snonuts Donuts. Another key element to be introduced at these on-snow eateries is experienced Baristas will be employed to bring the best coffee on the mountain at affordable prices. Music will be a key theme bringing life to the newly renovated venues.

    “We have employed experienced staff who will bring our magic alive. We can’t wait to open. It is a new chapter in the resort’s food and beverage experience. We believe guests will be really pleased with the ‘new’ Blue Brumby and Dicky Knees, two venues that play an important role in providing healthy, affordable dining in Sun Valley," says an enthusiastic Howie

    All I ever want when skiing is a meat pie and chips, it has been years since I was able to get one on the mountain for a quick lunch on the run, Windy Corner stopped selling chips due to YMCAs misconceptions over the nutritional value of deep fried potatoes served hot and salty

    gateway used to do chips, not sure about the new owners. they had jumbo homemade sausage rolls, not sure about pies.
    the supermarket has a pie warmer, and a microwave (or used to anyway)

    agree that it was stupid for ymca to get rid of the fryer. there may (my speculation) have been reasons beyond nutrition. deep fryers put up insurance costs. they are also an OHS risk, probably more so with staff without kitchen training

    I heard from an inside source that all deep fryers at all YMCA run kitchens had been removed and the reason given was for "nutritional purposes" but I agree they do put up insurance and they are very dangerous for untrained people.
    Gateway is at the wrong end of the village for me so I admit I have never used the cafe, just the toilets and showers on my way out and home

    Agree that nutritional reasons is what they say.

    I think there are sit down establishments that serve pie and chips but >$20

    Yep, I agree. At Hot-ham it's a quick pit stop at Snake Gully Hut for some dimmy's and chips then out again. Early in before the crowds and get a jug at The Bird and watch the sun go down. Heaven
