Yes, the line at K1 can get like that, but go to needles or canyon or north ridge or snowdon triple or lower skyeship or bear quad or south ridge on that day and there is pretty much no line. Only lifts that get like that are k1, snowdon bubble, ramshead and skye peak quad.
Because you are only considering people who ski numerous days per season.
It's also apparent from your post that you have absolutely no idea how few days the average North American skier gets on snow each season, which is only approximately 5.
Additionally, you're also not considering "new" skiers as part of the market at all, or perhaps more likely you aren't intelligent enough to realize that that's what "recruitment" means. I'll try not to use so many multi-syllabic words if replying to your posts in the future.
Yup. And this is a big concern some of us have in the long-term.
As a Mount Snow regular for 16 of the last 18 seasons (blame my 2 missed seasons 14 and 16 years ago on my kids being born! [emoji6]) Greg's report was accurate and quite nice today!I dont know Mount Snow, but 10 minute wait lines in early December, at least in my life, are not "normal" or something to be happy about.

There was a recent storm that left quite a bit of snow throughout New England this week. Of course it's going to be busier than your typical early December Saturday...
I have to agree with BG...10 minutes was an eternity yesterday. Skied all day at Belleayre, snowed more overnight and during the morning, all lifts ski on all day. In fact, in 3 days I skied there this week I never had a lift partner other than the folks I skied with.
Megapasses certainly do increase crowd sizes.
I know the locals at places like Squaw and Jackson will certainly agree with you.
I don’t mind it, there’s plenty of ski areas not on these passes that have plenty of good skiing at reasonable rates. Imo the mega passes give me all the more reason to visit the more mom and pop places.

Same; you can find me at.
Of course, Jay Peak will probably go IKON & Smuggs will probably be bought by Vail, and then I'm screwed. Maybe at that point I'll try Bolton Valley again, havent been there in about 17 years.
