I'm thinking of getting the 4x40 pass (2 days WP, 2 days steamboat for $200) and would use 1 day WP, 1 day SB over New Years. I will spend most of the trip in the Avon area seeing family so I'm not looking for alternate time/location suggestions.
I always like getting some variety and usually head to Aspen or smaller ski areas as part of this annual trip but I haven't been to SB or WP in many years and thought it would be fun to go back. A few questions:
- What are the crowds like over new years at SB and WP? Part of the group will ski a lot of groomers and I don't want them to get run over or wait for lifts all day.
- I would plan on skiing WP on the way to the airport. 9pm flight means I will likely hit ski traffic but I'm thinking it will be a lot lighter from WP than Summit. What is weekend travel time like in both good and bad weather scenarios?
Thanks for the help.
