Ummm okay... considering that hill is usually completely empty. Even Saturdays aren't that bad (compared to most "resorts").
I've rode there 20 times and never seen it busy or rained on. However yes, since it does have 4133 ft of vert of course it can rain on the lower half... this usually only happens in the springtime though.
What do you mean nothing but chutes? Yeah there are many gnarly ones, but What about the glades? The rollers? The trees? The Cliffs? The pow bowls? This hill is big and there's lots to find.

You are correct about the bad lift layout though. (can't believe i said that, you usually just make retarded comments)
Imagine if there was a mid-station on that gondola!
Their expansion plan sure went on the fritz.
