wait wasn’t too bad (but I was also in the singles line)

I refuse to do this. I wasn't a single, and in my world there's a special place in hell for people who arent singles who use the singles lane to cut the wait to 10% of what it should be, but we've had that conversation 100x before on this board & it's probably not worth another go.

Jay and Stowe were some epic pow days, seems like Smuggs delivered as well.
Great meeting you, we’ll ski together again
