Sorry man. It sorta felt like I was being called out over a quick side-note when I was just trying to help out some dude that was asking for advice. I apologize for being jumpy.
Anyway, yeah, I think you're right about WP. No kidding though, most of the days I went up it seemed like the good stuff was closed. I always tried to get back as far as I could, but the last season I was there it seemed like the area that was actually open most of the season wasn't super huge. That's awesome that you found someone to show you the good shit; that's definitely what I need. I do remember that it was a blast when everything was open, but that just added to the frustration when it wasn't. The last season that I bought a pass there ('06-'07), it seemed like a lot of the stuff didn't open until pretty late in the season, and then once it was open they closed it a lot because of wind or avy danger. Anyway, whatever. I've heard a lot of people that are a lot better than me say that WP is the shit, so I guess I need to go with someone that knows the mountain well.
BurtonAvenger, you're right, I was thinking Peak 10 and typed Peak 8. Oops. Nonetheless, last season Peak 7 seemed like the most crowded place there. The base at Peak 7 is huge and super crowded now. The base of Peak 8 may be worse (I couldn't say, I avoid it) but the base of Peak 7 is definitely out of control, and the runs are 10 times as crowded as they used to be.
