    Already ruined by years of people screaming about how uncrowded Platty was.

    Plattekill: Some excellent terrain, especially when the snow is good. Unlike many resorts, if they're at least half open or so, there's far more trail capacity than there is lift (not that lift lines are common either). Every chair can be going up full and you're still not going to feel crowded on the trails, IMO.

    Also, if you want local lodging, I can't really recommend The Roxbury Motel enough. Probably one of the most entertaingly absurd lodging experiences anywhere, and just a generally nice place. Not what you typically expect when you hear "motel".

    Some crowding is a good problem to have.

    It's the biggest downside to living in greater NYC as far as I'm concerned. There are so many people and a limited amount of places to go. Of course, this is by no means a new phenomenon - just exacerbated by better cars, increasing populations, growing rental stock and (temporarily) by a very strong economy.

    Blame it on Scotty LOL.

    I was there twice last year, and no where near crowded by my definition. From what I understand the previous year before storm Riley they were struggling. I’ve got 2 nelsap areas near me ,they were fun and uncrowded . Hopefully they’re at a level that is sustainable.

    Groundhog day lets go skiing !

    It's the population growth.

    Most Americans are completely clueless about this, but the US population has grown massively in a short period of time.

    In 1980, the Census was 226M people, this year it's expected to hit 330M people, that's almost 50% MORE people living within the United States in just 40 years, and the dimensions of the country didnt get any bigger. Open space, and places to "get away" as you suggest, are disappearing with it.
