i gotta second sibhusky on this one in that out of either 8 or 9 consecutive annual visits to big mountain, whitefish, i can count the days i actually waited in a line on one hand. There was a powder day line one time i recall and then, due to obscene amounts of snow last year bringing unusually large numbers of guests, presidents day weekend was the busiest i've ever seen it there in all honesty. And, then, it can be a little crowded on the odd canadian monday holiday. nonetheless, other than the busy 2 days last february, i've never felt a need to go slower at the bigs than i wanted to.
Only thing, i don't think whitefish is as much hidden as it is remote.
