best we can do for now...probably whatever they have already open..maybe 1 on the North side. I'll bet they are hoping for the storm to put down a good base all over then they can add to it. What will suck is if the timing of the storm allows them to groom the holy hell out of it. Hopefully it continues hard into Thursday. I'm bringing the BIG Bazookas just in case.

They made snow wednesday. Nothing running during the storm day, but I don't know what was going on at night.
The only thing that concerns me is running enough lifts. I get it if lifties could not make it there. Running F lift would have solved the shitshow a bit. Thankfully the guy showed up for North side..But that did not solve the 6 pack mob. Overlook is not an easy run. I imagine a lot of people did it once and had enough. I stayed back there a while..plenty to do.

webcam shows guns going and not too crowded..for a sold out day.

That's going to be the interesting question this season, what capacity constitutes a "sell out" point at the resort that day?

If you've got a midweek day, where they're staffing to run a reduced number of lifts, but potentially most, if not all of the terrain that's 1 number.

If you're staffing to run all the lifts, covering the same amount of terrain, that's an entirely different number.

And I doubt we'll publicly hear what those daily max numbers are either...

Look at Hunters webcam..not crowded at all. But this is just another thing that is not in our control. But clearly Vails statement about We think we will be able to accommodate everyone is clearly not the case. Yesterday North side had no waiting, while front side while busy was about a 10 to 12 minute wait.
WF, Bell, Hunter, Gore, Wyndham, Plattekill...all sold out the whole weekend.

obviously, they do not refresh real time. I was there today, and it was an ss at the highest level I have seen. All lifts 15+ minutes. I gave up at 11 and when I left there was at least 50 people in line for tickets. No D lift, 1/4 not wearing masks, and at 8:30 am the traffic was at a standstill from past the cumberland farms.
