- Mecox, NY / Winhall, VT
Empty slopes and great snow conditions should be emphasized. The biggest difference at Magic with red only running and 100% of the mountain open.I was there too and timed several waits. Longest was 24 minutes and that was due to the confluence of first batch of skiers arriving at base, people still arriving, maze being built/expanded, and the early "3 runs then go to work" crew was still there. Dropped off to 10-15 and then to minor at noon once Green opened. If Green was opened earlier (remember, powder days are Red only) lines would have been maybe 20 minutes with Green ski on.
NY DB is right about this weerkend, 15-20, maybe a one off at 10:30 or so is longer, Green 0-5. Slopes empty. Snow conditions and coverage exceptional.
Everyone should go elsewhere it'll be a terrible experience !
The crowd is at the lifts, not on the trails.
