I'd be skiing a lot of groomers with my Family. Anyone have insights into how long the lift lines and how crowded the groomed slopes will be? Would a Saturday at WP be worse than the Vail areas? (likely skiing WP on way to airport)
Winter Park on a Saturday will be pretty crowded, but distinctly less than the Vail experience.
A typical Saturday in Peak season can see some waits at the Super Gauge and sometimes Zephyr, but most of the rest of the mountain will get you on the lifts quickly.
Park on the Mary Jane side, in the Corona lot if you can- the best free parking anywhere. It is right next to the ski slope, just boot up and ski down to Mary Jane base for your ticket.
Winter Parkis best known for Mary Jane Moguls, but it has a LOT of good cruiser terrain. You will have fun.
