My sister-in-law (who got me into snowboarding) went there a couple weeks ago and said it was fucking packed! But still, a 7.50 lift ticket is a 7.50 lift ticket.
I'd go if I wasn't already taking Friday off next week to head to Petoskey.
Cab gets busy on weekends no doubt and the area where Smiling Irishman passes Shelter/Upper Easy Street feeding into Lower Canyon is like freaking rush hour traffic.
Heading to South Peak at those times is best. Lift may still have a line but the slopes are so wide open that traffic isn't an issue.
