Mid Station is privately owned and offers a great variety of food for breakfast and lunch. It's licensed too. It's a bit pricey but understandably so, given its location.
Take the quad chair from front valley and get off half way - thus the name - Mid Station. You can even get up there without skis on this chair lift!!
8.30-10am every day is 'Happy Hour' (or hour and a half), which means hot chocolate is a teeny $2.50 instead of the usual $5 or $6. It's a treat you can give yourself every day if you wish.
There's a gift shop for souvenirs and toilets that are kept nice and clean, so you can completely chill out and warm up on the inside while enjoying some of the best views around.
