When we were in JH we came down and ate lunch at the Fireside Bar in the Snake River Lodge every day. The peace and quiet (and better food) were worth the extra cost, which wasn't much more anyway. We're too old to ski bell to bell so a little extra time for lunch is no problem. The top of the Gondola zoo is too much chaos for me. Which applies to a lot of other places as well--Whistler for example. And that brings up a pet peeve (I have dozens). Why do ski area cafeterias, and just about every other restaurant and other public facility in North America, insist on playing loud, tired music--usually "Classic Rock"--that nobody listens to but has to shout over to be heard? Used to be elevator music was only in elevators, where at least it relieved the uncomfortable (for some) silence. I love music--to listen to, not to try and talk over. People--stand up for peace and quiet before people forget entirely what it is. We now return you to your regularly scheduled rant.
