To preface this message, I don't disklike Starbucks too much (over priced overroasted coffee but the gingerbread latte is tasty), but the appearance of a Starbucks in the village at Snowshoe just didn't sit all too well with me for some reason. I'll admit that Snowshoe is more concerned with getting money from lodging than anything else and that the scene is more focused on eating (good food) and DRINKING than skiing, but the Starbucks replaced an awesome coffee shop there. Maybe I shouldn't complain since I can always go to more skiing-oriented areas (i.e. Timberline) for less money anyways.
