Yes and yes, depending on the time of season. Mid-March weekends are hit and miss. But even when it's busy it's fun there because there are a lot of different lifts and runs to spread out on.

You can always play in north face(?). The back lift. That one is usually tolerable even if crystal is packed that day.

Dave and his fam, Sam and his fam, me and my fam will all be there that weekend.

Sam is out of commission still. The wives and husbands are going to do rotations on kid duty. So husbands take laps and then wives take laps.

Never tried this before. Interested in how it's going to play out lol.

They have a pretty top notch daycare there. Also, what my wife and I have done is put our daughter in ski school while we go off on our own. For the boys though, they stay at grandma's who lives about 40 minutes from there .

That sucks. Just throwing it out there. My 2 year olds don't ever have that issue but they are used to always having each other I suppose.

The wife and I have taken turns doing laps at times when our daughter was with us and she wasn't in a ski class. It works fine.

My nephew used to have that bigtime when he was same age! He would scream like somebody was being killed, at the top of his lungs whenever my sis dropped him off. Once she was out of sight, it wasnt 2 min. And he's laughing n playing with the other kids. Funniest part was picking him back up. He'd b playing and oblivious. But as SOON as he spotted her,.. OMG!!! The screaming would begin again until she actually had him in her arms!

My point being, all those hysterics are usually harder for the parents than the kids. Most of the time I think the parents freak at the level of the kids extreme reaction and wind up never leaving the child to let them eventually calm down Maybe give it a try and see how it goes. Now if it continues for 10-15-20 min. Without stopping, then yeah, probably not gonna happen.

Chomps is spot on. Bella tried that with daycare for a bit out of the blue and always was done crying before I got to the car.
