    But the point being, it's "not as crowded as other places".

    I skied at the Solitude a couple of weeks ago, and I did notice that the parking lot was undersized (not enough toilets either...). So what exactly happens if the two lots are full? Is there an overflow lot with a bus, or do you just park along the road with a long walk to the base? Please advise.

    Yep!

    (or you continue to Brighton in the hope there's parking there)

    True, but it is more crowded than it was. Personally, doesn't impact me. If anything, I say everyone should ski at Solitude!

    Even though it would have impacted me (though not any more at this point of the season), I'd still say people should ski at Solitude if they want to avoid crowd. Because everywhere else, they'd be worse off!

    To say Solitude is the only one that's unlimited, therefore must be most crowded, is just a theory that wasn't supported by evidence.

    So presumably Solitude owners would like to expand the lot, but are blocked by NFS red tape? Of course, the alternative to all of this is to park at the bottom of the canyon and ride the bus. And then enjoy the uncrowded slopes at Solitude.

    So the "owners" are Alterra. And for less than a year. So I don't think they've thought that far ahead yet. They are still figuring things out. Look for them to replace the Sunrise this year with an HSQ. That was in the works when DV owned it.

    As to the bus, yes, the parking lots down there are also overflowing.

    And do you live out here and ski in the Canyons every weekend as I do?

    I don't. But I have a local friend who ski Solitude often.
