OK, a ski liftie buddy of mine was working at the top of Albion, a beginner lift at Alta. This is his all-time favorite tourist question. A broad empty snowfield slopes gently downhill from the top of the lift, to a mid-mountain restaurant. There are no trees or rocks within a quarter mile.
A couple gets off the lift, slows to a stop next to him, points over at the restaurant, and asks: "How do you get over there?"
He looks over at the restaurant, looks at them, and, managing to keep a straight face, says: "Go over there".
"OK, thanks!" And off they go.
