Any tips to navigating the mountain, or stick with the model for busy Saturdays (arrive early, ski hard until 10 or so, switch to double or Gondi when quad singles line gets ridiculous, early lunch, ski through regular lunch when the crowds dissipate...).
Are all days from Christmas - 1/4 likely to be equally busy, or should things calm down Sunday 12/29?
Finally, for lessons: for my daughter, is it worth doing the kids adventure a couple of days, or should we wait til we are back during a quieter time(we have built in babysitting), she had a great time when we were up last week, and I want to good experiences to continue. For myself and my wife, how busy do the mountain clinics get? Part of me thinks of it as a good way to cut the lines while also working on improving, but if they are usually packed, I'll hold off. We are up 2-3 times a month, and I have limited budget for lessons, so total number of lessons will be the same this season whether we do them this week, or later in the season.
