RIskier is spot on here....(now these are bear secrets do not tell the general public)
I arrive at 0700, I boot up and the only company I have while doing so is the race kids....who also know the secret. Challenger lift usually fires at 0745. Sometimes earlier. By 10:00 I have 15 to 20 runs in working the singles line. I usually take just a few runs on the main mountain lift..prefrg to ski laps off the Challenger lift taking advantage of the singles line. The crowds arrive, and I am gone, always before 11.
Further, if you are a AAA member go to the AAA southeastern NE web site and hunt down the Wachusett coupon for free AAA passport. Last year it was $8 off every visit. So you can forget the over $40 part with your AAA passport.
This weekend wa wa should be fabulous. See smj's thread in the resort section and please chime anytime in that thread if you like when you are going. We'll say hello.
There's a few other secrets to tackling this busy hill...but we'll show ya those in person
