Not sure where to start so here goes...
I'm just curious what others would do in this type of situation. Over the weekend we (wife, 8yo son, 9yo son, and I) went into the lodge at 11:15am for lunch (packed in cooler). Older woman sitting at a picnic table, I ask if we can sit and she says "we have 7 sitting here." There is nobody sitting there and nobody showed up. One son sat on another bench, one son sat on the cooler and my wife and I stood and ate. We are never inside for more than 20-30minutes. I am getting tired of dealing with these people who sit in the lodge all day for the sole purpose of "reserving" a table for others.
We enjoy this particular mountain and will continue to go back. We left early this past weekend because we couldn't deal with how inconsiderate and rude some people were. We have never experienced this behavior while skiing here. Is this what happens during "school vacation week"? All ski areas are overcome by the "inconsiderates"?
I am by no means "overly-sensitive". I am out to enjoy the day skiing with my family. Silly me, I thought others would be trying to enjoy themselves also.
