You dont get a choice when you're there Ian.

If youre on the slopes and want a drink, thats the price. Pay it or shut up.

Next time order an espresso. In Italy it will rarely cost you more than an euro wherever you are (as long as you order at the bar).

Cokes and mars bars are the most expensive things in mountain restaurants, even in Claviere where you can have a decent lunch for a tenner

I always have Mars bars (bought in the UK) with me. And a litre of water. I dont tend to buy drinks like coke tbh, although the odd beer here and there.....

I don't think I have drunk any coke on a ski holiday ..... As Tony says pay or shut up or the best bet is bring your own

The red wine is much better value than coke... Glass of vino or a beer lunchtime other than that it's water from the camelpak.

When we were ski-ing Meribel at New Year I was really annoyed because we were in the restaurant at the top of the Tougnette 1 and they refused to give me a carafe of tap water, even though I'd bought meals for 3 of us there

They even had a cutting from a French newspaper stuck up saying that the French law had changed and restaurants are no longer required to provide free water.

So I had to BUY bottles of very expensive water

I think that was really mean, because water is essential when you're ski-ing, just like it is in the desert, because it's very easy to become dehydrated.

Ally you should of asked them for a glass, or cup. Then proceeded to the outside of said restaraunt to fill it with snow just to prove a. Point..... Mr frosty at the ready

Agree this isnt v hospitable however if they can make money from doing so then there entitle to. However stupidly it's probably doing them more damage by doing so as word will soon spread.
