    If Friday is a work day I've never really had to wait in line very long anywhere up in VT.

    Agreed. Guess I was just curious what the other three areas are. If she responded Jay, Sugarbush and Smuggs; my suggestion would be to ski Bush and Jay on the weekend and Stowe and Smuggs M/F

    And WKND is an acceptable abbreviation for weekend

    My experience is, a typical weekend, there will be about a 10 minute wait at teh forerunner from about 10-10:30 to 12:30-1. Other than that, couple minutes to ski on.

    The Gondi will be a little longer. But Stowe can handle crowds very well.

    Obviously if it's a holiday, or a lift goes down for wind or whatever, or it's a crazy sick powder day with clear roads in teh AM, things can get shitty, but generally speaking, I wouldn't worry about it.

    What are the other mountains?

    Good point about the reunion type pre-planning. The point above is also spot on. However, while I only ski Stowe a couple times a year, a Saturday is always in the mix. 4-runner is to be avoided, Gondi can be ok because the line moves pretty good. Outlook never has any line of substance though its a slow lift. I've also found the lines at Spruce, especially Sensation Quad, to be manageable.
