park in the first lot if you already have a pass, if not park on the north side of the road by the bridge, really the closest to the lodge.
with no new snow 9am to 10am is not that crowded so you can ride hogs or skyline, as the line grows move to tye mill, and then the back side. all the ski schoolers take lunch from 12 to 1 so its a good time to hit the front side runs again. take a late lunch and after that the crowds have started to leave so the lines arnt bad after 3.
the main run down the back side "Gemini" great for intermediate riders off of the tye mill and jupiter chairs. nice long run and the lines are shorter.
Where is tye mill located? I haven't gone to stevens in 3 years.
Also, is it true brooks is mostly park now?
I really like the soft snow on brooks and I tend to avoid skyline as there is a lot of ice/moguls.
