Even worse, about three years ago at Chestnut Mt. on opening day there were 30-45 minute waits at the bottom of the only lift that was open. I only rode down twice before I said f*ck it, and went home.
Honestly that's how it is here too, but when lines get long I just find a rail/box and start hiking it.
