Blue Mountain Cafeteria Food – Not Absolutely Terrible

Went snowboarding for the first time this year and had an amazing time. It was super cold, it had just snowed about an inch, and conditions were pretty darn good. The only thing I dread about snowboarding is eating lunch at Blue Mountain. I’m sorry, but their food just isn’t good. And you know, it’s overpriced. Not quite as much as amusement park overpriced, but still overpriced. I didn’t hate my chicken sandwich though. But I didn’t like that they didn’t have bbq sauce for me to actually add some flavor to it. But I’ve had worse food there, so this was pretty good, comparatively. Unless you pack a lunch, you don’t really have a choice, so it certainly does the job!

Hot Dogs On The Slopes

Oh Blue Mountain cafeteria…. how I dislike you more and more each time I visit. What sucks is that you really don’t have any other choice. After swooshing down some mountains, you get famished, and you need nourishment. But the food is so not pleasant. I mean I guess it could be worse, but it could be so much better! And it wouldn’t take that much effort to kick it up a tiny little notch. They have plenty of candy, that’s for damn sure.
We both ended up getting a coupla hot dogs. They were quite blah. I’m not a huge hot dog fan, but I know a good hot dog when I eat one, and these weren’t them. And seeing as how the food here has amusement park / sports complex prices, they were hardly a bargain. Oh how I wished I could have a couple of 50 cent hot dogs from Ikea! My fries were cold. And let’s not forget that I literally stood there waiting for these for 15 minutes. They said to me “the fries aren’t made yet”. And I told them fine, I’ll wait. So I waited. And waited. And waited some more. Turns out that while I was standing there, they forgot that I wanted fries. So when I finally got them, they were cold. Beyond freaking annoying. I nearly wanted to just get my money back, but I just didn’t want to talk to those idiots again. At least conditions on the mountain were good and I thoroughly enjoyed snowboarding and the bananas and gatorade that I brought with me.

What Snowboarders Eat

I went to Blue Mountain the other weekend to snowboard for the first time in a few years. I really thought I would have forgotten how to do this, but I remembered. It was like riding a bike. I’d forgotten what the food was like here. I think I’ve gotten the chili before. Perhaps some soup. I always ate at the Summit Lodge before, but this time around, we were at the Valley Lodge, all the way at the bottom.

By the time we ate, we were both famished. We’re dummies that forgot to eat breakfast. Then we boarded for a little bit. I was starvin! Nothing really appealed to me, but I needed fuel, so I got some chicken fingers. Boy, were these terrible. No amount of bbq sauce or honey mustard helped. They just weren’t good. You’d think it’d be hard to screw up some pre-made chicken fingers, but man, I just did not enjoy these in the least. And they didn’t have any regular gatorade. It was some weird fierce melon flavor. It wasn’t good either, but I figured I could use the electrolytes.

T got a crapload of food. A hot dog (which he said was good, as in soft enough to eat and not cause pain to his teeth which were sore from having just had work done), soup, and ice cream. I ended up eating his yogurt, which was also terrible. Overall, a not so fantastic food experience. But I felt much better after eating because my body was desperate for calories. But truly, when I say it was terrible, I mean it. You might want to pack a lunch!
