Is it typically a crowded time period? My wife and I both noted there wasn’t a ton of people on the webcams (today) compared to other weeks.  Can anyone give perspective about this year and years previous?  Does it pick up on Friday?

thanks!

It will feel crowded b/c there is not much open.  They say 11 trails but it’s Spruce and Gandy feeding into that choke point leading down to Ballhooter.

Then there’s 2 top to bottom green runs feeding to Powder Monkey with another choke point above the terrain park.

I had fun last weekend, but set your expectations accordingly.  It will definitely be busier on Friday.

Did you get out?

I sampled the goods on Saturday.  Fortunately the rain held off most of the day, though there was a nasty fog/mist that thickened with time.  Not the best day but hey I was skiing.  Crowds seemed a little more than last season, not a problem just had to be cautious at the usual trail merges.  I heard Friday was a great day.

I was there Friday afternoon and all day Saturday.  Friday was nicer: somewhat cloudy but no precipitation.  Based on the weather forcast I expected the worst on Saturday but what rain did fall was pretty light - more like a slight drizzle, and sporadic.  It was pretty much just a mild annoyance and probably kept the place from being crowded, which suited me fine.  We never had to wait more than a few minutes in any lift line.  Sunday looked awful as we left: steady rain with heavy wind and fog.  I was glad we had picked that day to come home.
