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.

Tye mill is the main run to the backside. Brooks almost all park now.For intermediate riding by yourself hogsback isn't that bad in the singles line and still access some of the better blue runs. I like the blue run down kehr's also. The intermediate runs on the backside are ok but are limited to two, but the lines are short.

You guys were totally right.
The place got crowded QUICK.
Even arriving at 8:30 the parking lots were pretty crowded and the lifts still had a wait time. Around 10 it got extremely hectic so I went to the back side.
Guess what? Still crowded.
I guess most of my riding will be on tuesdays where the crowd is smaller.

Did you have fun at least? I was up there on Sunday and it was great springtime conditions and the park crew was doing a good job with the upkeep. Snow stayed soft for the most parts and the lines weren't totally unreasonable
