Unfortunately, Trams are not high capacity lifts even if you can stuff over a hundred people in a box at a time. And unfortunately, it's the only way to the very top so it more than likely draws big crowds for first runs. I feel for you, but again I circle back to the fact that JHMR (and Snowbird for that matter) have put a ton of capital investments in over the last decade. The resorts didn't do this just to please the few of you who have been or are now "locals.". That wouldn't produce the ROI they are looking for. So the fact they have done these investments publicized those investments and happen to be many skier and rider's top destination "proving grounds" didn't have anything to do at all with attracting people to the mountain. The fact JHMR has had some of the best snow in the country the last 2 seasons hasn't helped your situation either as that is increasing folks wanting to hit their "dream" mountain when it is good as well.A 40 minute wait for the tram, on a refreeze, basically spring, midweek day is absurd.
Jackson has increased its skier visits almost 40% in two years. Your memories are wrong.
5 tram wait at 8:30am this past Sunday. It was almost 8 by the time the mountain opened. That is an hour and a half wait.
