What Blue Knob needs is lodge expansion. It's hard to find a place to sit at times due to the size of the lodge. Also it seems alot of people reserve tables for the whole day by putting all their crap on them
This seems to be a common technique, from what I have seen, in Whitetail and Liberty.
The way I see it, if the table is open (regardless if the table has been 'claimed' with coolers, portable electric hibachis, duffle bags, slow cookers, tupperwear trays, etc) I/we are using that table. I don't care if they have their crap on it and claim that it is their table.
It drives me crazy when I see these tables 'camped out' when there are people, families with kids walking around looking for a place to sit after buying their $5 hot dog.
This was especially annoying at Whitetail, upstairs and downstairs, last year during the weekends. People did not just 'claim' a small area. They put their crap on half of the table and sat on the other half, where there was more room, for them. I guess you can tell that this drives me crazy.
Back to BK, I kind of like its 'rustic' quality but I hate walking from the lifts towards the wooden stairs at the lodge when the ground around it is iced up. It is a pain. That should be the first cheap improvement.
