In other words, exactly what I already said.
I mentioned the price simply because it's relevant to the size conversation (i.e. you pay extra for a cat ride, but still [a lot] less than Canyons).
Never eaten at Canyons so no opinion there, but your characterization of Snowbasin as cafeteria/lodge food is not particularly accurate. Don't know many other resort "cafeterias" with carving and stir fry stations.
