Down the pants pizza, or armpit cheeseburgers this season! (K10's idea of a warm tasty treat on the hill)

Was it Cosmic who started doing burgers out of his backpack?

On the incredibly upside, that takes people off the hill for a set time! Mind you, they need to get there from FF somehow.

This one will be sure to stir up some opinions here I’m sure- Black Sallee’s are now taking bookings with a deposit:

In Hanazono there is an ongoing issue with families making the Nanny hold a table for their group. They’re paid to sit at the table and shoo away people looking for a seat. They have bags and hoodies and things on seats and on tables to make it look like someone is up at the counter. They hold that table sometimes all day. It’s an impediment to business and not in the spirit of a ski community where pulling up a chair next to other people will often find you new lifelong friends.

THIS is monetising THAT behaviour.
Do. not. Like.

Needs to be posted on Jindy Noticeboard.
LOL
I can see the response now.

Be funny and sad if the place is full of people sitting at tables and not ordering anything.

Used to be my favorite place to go for a dark wheat beer and a relatively cheap feed. If it was usable against food and drink I would happily drink my way through the deposit.
I can't even think it's the only way they could make the business model work after not opening last year. It's just weird.

Its making me laugh.
Its like mid station at Perisher charging a sitting fee.
*they probably will.

That place (Perisher Mid)can be bulldozed and replaced when the lift is upgraded there perhaps.. Build a decent cafe, a proper restaurant and a large indoor and outdoor picnic area for BYO food.

If it came off the bill, and they charged a service fee (reasonable $) for extra Covid safe cleaning then ok. But that price to hire the table. No black sallees for me this season.

Hell no, it's charm was it was a dilapidated building with cheap food and a good selection of booze. Then after you've had a few beers you choose your own adventure down the face and eventually meet up with the cat track.

I sure as heck hope the little sign on the table says “Reserved for Scottski and Friends”
For $180 I want deference and recognition.
I have standards,
Biggest issue, what should I wear ? I will have to drop into Snowsports for a new Jacket and pants. Can’t be seen in the same outfit I skied yesterday.

People try that at Perisher. I had one day I was looking for a seat and the young bloke who would have been 3 or 4 at the time. Got told by the person sitting there that those seats were taken. Anyway, I am a big ugly dude and can be pretty gruff. I ignored them and sat down saying I will move when they get back, we managed to eat our food and have a bit of rest and nobody came to the table. I despise seat hoarders like that

So since they want a booking system for black sallees now, hopefully most people will now boycott and I will be able to get in for my mid morning HC without a hassle.

Yes as Donald said. Mid station at Perisher with the sweaty windows and no ventilation

There was a lot of table hoarding at Merrits last year as Mum or Grandparents ventured up on the Gondi and watched the kids ski for 5 hours whilst not leaving the tables! Forced our family of 6 to stop for lunch at 10:30ish and we still struggled for a table.
We moved on to Black Sallees after a couple of days and that was easier, but now we're f*^ked all over again!!

The mountains are changing and we will just have to live with the memories of what Thredbo was...and enjoy what it now is...To me Black Sallees will always be that afternoon of shots and beers, with a coach load of newbies, experiencing life in the mountains for the first time... i don’t recall how we ever got them down again. :)

But if the tables are not booked, then surely walk-ins will be able to sit there...

Nothing like an undertaker in the afternoon to warm you up.

wonder what changed?
Obviously crunched the numbers on Mick's post and though fug it, let's charge for bookings
orced our family of 6 to stop for lunch at 10:30ish and we still struggled for a table.
Bugger, I found Merritt's ok last year. Although we would be in with the fam around 1030 for a HC and quick snack before heading out again. Most of our lunching was done in the van
