Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
More reports from my trip to Yosemite last weekend. This time I want to tell you about the Curry Village Buffet. Last season the cafeteria style buffet was about $12 per person for all you can eat. If you were over 55 they gave a couple bucks off. I am not a gourmet, so I have been very happy with the offerings. Tons of chicken, fish, pasta, tacos, salad, jello and all the cranberry juice I could l drink. So we stopped by to check out the buffet Saturday night. They were having a skier’s special event and the posted price was $23.50. Yikes. OK, a special event. I talked the man the next day about it and he said their regular winter rate was $22. I asked if the normal price would get back to the $12 level during the summer. Er, no, it will go up to $18. And no senior discount. Holy inflation, Batman!. I suspect they will lose a lot of low income patrons. Since you can’t cook in or around your tent cabin, get ready for long pizza lines.
