By objective standards, Breck is exactly "crazy crowded." It competes for the most skier visits in the US every year, and every other resort in the running for that dubious title is much, much larger. Just because you don't have to wait for a lift every single time skiing into the queue does not mean it is not crowded. Skier visits to acreage, it is the most crowded major resort in the US (leaving wiggle room for some tiny Midwest hill that may see more visits per acre due to tiny size).
It is statements defending Breck crowds that really make me think regular Breck skiers get out of touch of what the ski reality is at most other resorts away from the I-70 corridor.
I skied A-basin several times last year. Was it so crowded as to make it not fun to ski there? Nope. Was it significantly more crowded than any other ski day I took last year? Absolutely. Would I have been tickled pink to catch a powder day there to watch the snow get annihilated in short order by those same crowds? Err, No.
And before I catch the retort of "You can always find snow if you know where to look," understand that at less crowded areas, you don't have to know where to look because untracked stuff is staring you dead in the face on the best terrain the mountain has to offer, and it will remain staring you in the face the entire day.
Fortunate for me I have skied all over the state and know exactly what the reality is. Your numbers do little to show what the ski experience may be on a day-to-day basis. My experience of taking a 3 hour ski break over lunch during the week and never waiting in a single lift line, drives home the theory that the ski experience can be quality and quite uncrowded.
