I don't want it, but there is one thing I learned in the last couple of years after not skiing at all in the East, just waiting for those all to rare opportunites to do some real skiing. Even sh*&(y snow and a tiny mountain are (usually) better than sitting home and feeling sorry for yourself.
But as you may be implying, adding crowds to the occasion really destorys even this flimsy equation.
There is zero point to doing this where there are long lift lines. I mean 600 ft of vertical isn't bad if you can just ski on and do laps, but 600ft followed by a half an hour wait in lift line is impossible. Thats one thing I like about a couple of resorts nearby dc, if you time it right, you don't have to deal w/ long lines.
So I guess I'll stay away fromthe resorts around NY then, if as you seem to be saying thats what they'll be like. Thanks.
