redlude97 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

xsea 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.

Alright, thank you very much

I really like the soft snow on brooks and I tend to avoid skyline as there is a lot of ice/moguls.

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.

There are a couple of ways down that are blue, and the blacks aren't too bad. I'm not sure what you mean by intermediate, but it's probably at least worth a look.

my suggestions would be to go straight to the backside and stay there until it closes at 4.

enjoy...

Stevens on the weekend has been packed ever since ski/snowboard school started. My friends who could do the backside escaped there but the rest of us stuck to Brooks and Skyline, which were both far less crowded than Hogsback. Last Sunday you could almost ride straight onto the Brooks chairlift while Hogsback was chockers.
Thanks, i'll probably leave my house at 6:30. So even if I get there 30 mins early ill just take a quick nap
