This is my dream trip so I want to make the best of it. I know the lifts open at 830 am, but what is the recommended time to get there to jump in line??

Im just not sure how fast the lines start forming.

Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance
They upload pretty much at 8:15am every morning. Because I work nights I aim to get in line at 8am and I am generally one of the first people there.

I know it is going to be a public holiday, but the crowds this season have been very manageable. I remember spending a good 35mins in a line once or twice last season. I found if you get first chair up get a good 3-4 runs in before it starts getting busier, by then they generally open up the alpine. A few runs in the alpine and its time for an early/late lunch so you can be riding again while everyone else is eating
