got my first run in at wachusett last night! Overall it was really crowded, and very icy, but it was worth it just to get that urge out of my system.
I got there around 5:30, and the lift line was crazy. They were loading every other chair to keep the traffic down on the mountain (only one trail was open). The trail wasn't too bad though, still good snow on the edges. Around 8 it started to die down, there was pretty much no lift line, but the trail was ALL ice. Def glad I went though, picked up my season pass and got to test out my sl-r for the first time!
