On non pow days in the mid sized home resort: it's SOP to ride/eat acyclic from the crowds which gather for lunch at noon and start aprés at three. Which run depends on sight and temperature/sun exposure. No plan, on the flow.
On pow days: clear plan. Be first to ride the stashes obvious for everyone, when chewed up, go to the spots turists don't know.
