    If you don't like lines, don't ski Saturday. Mid-week is when to ski, if you can swing it.

    Agreed 100%

    That's really all they need and still keep the slopes not crowded on the way down.

    If you know on the weekends and holidays (when the mountain is 100% open) both chairs are spinning 8:30 am that's a huge difference for me (speaking as a 1st time seasons pass holder)

    The lines were long all over VT on Saturday. If you think that going to Mt. Snow, Stratton, or Bromley would have gotten you better runs, value, etc. you are kidding yourself.

    Magic also deserves props for keeping the chair running until 5pm during the Spring.

    That being said, once Black and/or Green get running, it's going to be awesome for both the operations and the customer.

    No of course no-one should be blamed here but Magic is developing the problem (a good one I suppose) of being too popular for capacity. I was there two weeks ago in the first heavy snowstorm and it was fantastic. Loved it. It was also empty. But I'm just not going to go skiing anywhere where I have to wait 30 minutes for a lift, a slow lift at that so I can't see going there on a weekend anytime soon. Hopefully the bumper March can fund restoration to full functionality of the second lift which would do a lot. I'd also recommend raising prices on Saturdays to better fund improvements.

    Yeah, there's no line at all on Wednesdays.

    Once Magic has 2 lifts running it won't be a problem even on the busiest days.

    Once Green is in action it won't even be part of the conversation.

    Hmmmmm.... well, there's an idea, let me think about that.....no, no I'll still ski on Saturday thank you very much.

    But I tend to strategically choose where to ski on Saturday to best minimize or alleviate crowding. Live and learn.

    Yea. Not skiing Saturday is a great idea with the simple exception of that's when most of us are "forced" to ski due to work. I'd love to ski midweek and be able to skip the weekends, but with a regular job that just doesn't work out so well.
