Just wanted to let you know that you were right. No crowd at all. Our longest lift wait of Saturday was mayby 10 chairs, more typical to have 1 or 2 at most during the week.
We scored good snow each day and they were running Pine Martin & Northwest chairs (one day, Summit Expresss was running vs NW due to the weather). Springtime hours of op = 8 AM to 1 PM.
Even with the dodgy weather pattern last week (day 1 = mixed rain/snow down low. day 2 = Sun breaks other 3 days cold and snowing on and off with fog on the upper 1/5th of the open hill) we had a great trip and scored a lot of fun in the NW trees as well as on-piste. That makes us 4 for 4 at Batchelor Butte in the spingtime.
