    amazing..... while Hunter sent out a memo to "some" of their passholders. I did not get it, but have read it. We do not really care about their excuse - just fix it. we paid for X so delever X. There was not even a coupon for a free cookie on the email I saw............

    Thinking a Mt. Snow blast up and back, Sunday. Parking tips again please, to avoid the crowds? Lifts to avoid? Will arrive 7:30 AM and leave 2 PM. Have 55.00 passes available to me.

    We went to MS last April and HATED it. We left calling it Mt. Blow due to super aggressive skiers/boarders and hoards of people. The lunch area was a pig pen. Folks couldn't even clean up after themselves.

    Park at Sundance, ride Grand Summit instead of Bluebird, and don't go to Carinthia unless you really feel the need. (They do an awesome job with the parks there but they (especially Nitro) get absolutely overrun with kids and teenagers on weekends and I have come close to landing on people a few times as they cluelessly cut across jump landings or cut in front of me at the last second to jump off the kicker for a feature I was gonna hit). Avoid Long John and Cascade except where you absolutely have to take them to get to something. I won't disagree with you on crowds there though-- Mt. Snow is to CT what Loon is to MA: the closest "real" mountain to a major metro so it's a huge draw for the masses. IMO Grand Junction at Loon is worse than anything at Mount Snow, but not by a huge margin. The summit does get super clogged because there is effectively a high speed 10pack unloading there so I would suggest knowing exactly where you're going before you get off. There are some very enjoyable runs on the North Face (Plummet, Jaws, Trials when they're open) and Sunbrook is a good spot to avoid lines if you can deal with the long and sometimes cold lift. (I hear rumor of an HSQ there soonish though, who knows...) Spring bumps on Beartrap are fun too. Tony's in the main lodge is my preferred spot for lunch, it's a decent deal by ski-food pricing standards and surprisingly good pizza.

    Agree with jmgard ^^^ on pretty much everything. If you're getting there at 7:30am you might as well go to the Main Base lodge so you don't have to ride Tumbleweed or Seasons out of Sundance. You'll get good parking at 7:30am, no worries. Hit whatever you want to hit on the Main Face from 8am-9am and don't even try to go back after that. North Face and Sunbrook will be good choices. Maybe ride the Sundance lift on the Main Face if it's running.

    Hopefully they get a lot of snow Thursday-Saturday. Get some of the natural trails open.

    It's going to be crowded on a weekend, but Sunday should be better than Saturday so you have that going for you, at 730 am parking shouldn't be an issue, crowds don't really show up until after 9. Get as many runs in as you can early at the peak and when crowds start showing up head to the north peak.
