CJ this year was a crazy exception to the busy side of things. I've never seen a X mas holiday season with this little tourists in the 6 years I've been up here. But on a good year there's a reason you don't see me ride from around the 23rd till the 2nd and that's the lines and shit. I've seen 2 hour lift lines peak holiday season.
As far as the town nothing tops it. There's a few fucktards that hate on tourists here and I don't have a problem screaming at them for that and being that guy. But over all the town knows tourism is our bread and butter and it caters to them. 10 dollar cheese burgers and pay parking all over with 3 parking enforcement officers giving out tickets. But the quality of restaurants, lodging, and shopping is world class.
Hell there's a reason I live here year round.
