    Pro tip:

    Ski down to Snowshed, catch the shuttle to Mountain Green, Hops On The Hill opens at 3pm for a pint and some wings and nachos, shuttle back to the hill.

    My plan is for Mon Tues Wed next week at K.

    Other than that I'll be scraping around at Belleayre Wed and Fri this week.

    The actual weekend is going to be a clusterf*ck.

    Deciding if I should head up to Vt from Bucks Cty Pa for two days.

    Im thinking of Mon Mt Snow and Tues K with my son. Have never skied Vt on MLK weekend and hoping Monday at Mt Snow wont be too terrible. Assuming that will be the lowest volume day

Yes, k1,bubble,ramshead,ans SpQ will have ridiculous lines, but if you ride the canyon, bear chair, needles, superstar, Snowdon triple etc, you can avoid those crowds pretty easily....hopefully the snow happens on saturday and opens up the unmarked and there will be plenty of room....just dont go to the bar.
    Correct, when K is 90%-100% open and all the lifts are spinning it's extremely manageable crowd-wise (as long as it's not a top 5 busy day). It gets it's reputation of being crowded from the days of 1 million+ skier visits annually which was supported by a lift network with half the capacity as today. Just don't do anything stupid like try to ski Great Northern or go down to the K1/Skye Peak Quad at 11am.

    6" on top of dirt or blue ice isn't going to do anything. Wait til after Saturday, gonna need someone to get 14-18"+ to make anything worth skiing again, imo.

    We'll be at Sunday River, they are blowing a ton right now including Lost Princess in Oz. With Oz quad open, always a good option on peak days to ski on/off lift. They may even get to Eureka too by the weekend. And plenty of other snow being blown around. Nats/woods are closed for now but I'm hearing they weren't destroyed and we have a decent frozen base on those to work off of. 8-10 inches and many should open back up.

    I've skied the last 4 years on MLK weekend in VT. Once at Stratton and Killington and twice at Stowe. Saturday and Sunday is really busy Monday on is not so bad. Saturday is definitely going to be the worst day.

    6" on top of man man snow can make for a fun morning, but this weekend it will all be blasted in an hour I suppose.

    My only chance is Sunday this weekend. We don't close for the holiday, so its a regular weekend for me. Might try catskills if the Sat. storm hits, but boy, Hunter is gonna be a jam packed shit show and Belleayre really got clobbered by the torch. and it looks like Platty is essentially closed....like three trails survived....
