Longest you've ever waited in line. - Page 2

post #31 of 33
45 min at Mountain Creek on a Feb Saturday! Never been back on weekends.

Another 45 min at the ticket counter at MC during mid-week (though after a big dump), was the last time I've been to MC. No plan to go again, ever.

Lift lines of 20-30 min. or so are not un-common in the NE during holiday weekends. As long as the companion is cheerful, the wait time pass fast enough. And if the companion isn't, I bee-line over to the singles queue!

I'm talking about the dogs who were on line at 7AM to get the first tram. We got there a little before 8 and there was a pretty good line waiting well before opening. Of course this was a during a bit of a drought and there had been no dumps for quite a while and things were kind of sketchy/ spring conditions.

Yup, I've skied and stood in line at Sugar Mtn. Most of the North Carolina ski areas have horrible lines, especially over holliday weekends. At least Sugar has 1200 ( or so ) vertical feet, some of the ski hills over there are *much* smaller.

I've actually skied Sugar Mountain on a powder day. I was there for 4 days, it probably snowed 6" or so everyday. They groomed about a third of the big red lift, and and EVERYBODY stayed on the groomed side, except me, LOL. I made probably 10 sets of crossed tracks in about a foot of untracked powder. I've also skied there when it was nothing but man made ice.
