I'm wondering if "crowds non existent" is because you're from New Jersey or if indeed it's the vastness of Big Sky that is absorbing them. And then I say to myself, what do you care? As long as no one comes HERE!
Anyone know what the Big Sky record is for skier visits on any one day? Just curious.
Edit. Found it for the prior season, 8392, which when divided by their acreage (5800) yields less than two skiers per acre. Definitely beats our 8631, especially since we have less acreage. Yes, go there.
Yeah, I really didn't care why it was empty. The year we were there during Xmas, there were no real lift lines. Maybe 20 people in front of us at peak times. The only time it seemed a little crowded was at lunch time in the lodge. But NOTHING like the East Coast during Xmas week.I was there on that Dec 27th and there were lift lines at Swifty and the Six Shooter, which are not typical so there corrals were too small and poor line management. Slopes had a lot of elbow room. Compare ~8,400 to Vail having ~27,000 the same day.
