Arapahoe Basin tommorow at 9:00am

Is anyone going to the opening day of Arapahoe Basin tommorow ? I was thinking about going since I'm only 20 minutes away, but I'm a little worried it'll suck because of only one run and tons of people. The one run I don't mind, but not being able to carve without hitting someone would suck. Anyone went to an opening day on a weekday before, or at all ? How was it ?

Maybe i'll just go at like 3 when most people have gotten board and went home

If your that close and already have a pass why not? Even if the lines suck ass(which im sure they will) and the run is crowded(again a most likely), what the hell else are you gonna do thats not more of a waste of time??

They will have at least a couple rails set up too. Just get there super early so you get first tracks and dip when you get bored/cant handle the crowd anymore

This and it's one of the few days of the year you can hunt a gnargoyle in the sunlight and they won't turn to stone!
