yeah, oddly for when I've been in the boat I've seen this sporadically. Not sure why but in early Jan ... I think the 15th, Friday before MLK the lines stayed till just after noon. Wasn't a powder day either. I'll claim they were trying but I really feel it was the occasional perfect storm. I was really irritated and after waiting for 20 min in the Christie got a call from my kids who were gonna ski later but changed their minds. I walked back to condo (slope side) and...
 I tend to agree that depending on time of season, you may be able to hit a group lesson that is essentially empty. My daughter hit a group level 5 snowboard lesson at Steamboat Jan 13th that ended up being private. next day my other child and joined for a semi private.  something to consider if money is a factor, if not .. great!
I find opposite easy!  Sorry for the poor pic quality but the important thing is Ron ambassadored me, then my spouse and daughter. Funny thing is I witnessed Ron take what I believe is a rare fall in the Meadows when a hidden pine top nabbed his ankle. Sadly I wasn't quick enough for a pic.  
  very true, reports saying 12 inches or so next day or so, fairly consistent at 3-5 per day and way it looked on early drive ... sure thing.  Thanks Ron on tips, MJ and I practiced (and heading out now before kids are up for afternoon) to do loops from Norther, Surprise down to Burguess Creek lift and around. Decent bumps to practice on. Also, youngest played instructor yesterday taking us on Hot Cakes, Ridge and through trees. Hey! Tree paths just off trails were great...
 Agreed that they should check with who they booked with. also, if none found The Olympian pass is on sale now and if I read correct, at least it'd be good the 18th, 19th, 20th, of course if they can't ski one of those days it wouldn't be a good option: http://www.steamboat.com/tickets-and-passes/olympian-pass.aspx
My families hit early feb, first full week for last 5+ years. Part of why we go is even with Carnival the hills never seemed crowded to us. It really seems more so if there is a decent dump of say 4+ inches, perhaps more like 6+ and then locals and I presume nearby will hit the hill. If a weekend some front range will too but in earnest, we've seldom had any long wait other than perhaps at the base. I think our "long wait" may be around 20 min but that was again base to...
 @FREEgoneagreed, sadly this year we miss Winter Carnival. We enjoyed the snow carvings when hitting the downtown for dinner and souvenirs and the Fireworks are pretty impressive. easily viewable from the downtown area if not going over to the park side http://www.steamboatchamber.com/calendar#2016/01/01
 Funny, being an Imperial Stout, maybe Big Bad Deacon or Bishop would align with Czarist ties .... ? of course, it opens up the idea of new brews ...
Sorry to hear, nice b/w photo. Tough start to the year. Hoping the memories ease the pain.
