Default Mountains on the Weekdays

I was just wondering what the turnout would be like on weekday that isn't a special event or holiday. Is it going to be like a ghost town or will it be like half the population of a day on the weekend?

Just for reference, I'm headed to Wachusett Mt. in Central Massachusetts.

Thanks in advance.

Be ready for no lift lines and no one sitting/standing in the middle of the runs.

At our local area it depends on weather.

The lift lines on a powder Wednesday looks like a weekend/holiday until noon when most people go back to work. If the storm keeps raging it's often better riding (same snow, less people) from 1 to close than for the early crew.

One thing that can make midweek powder days less crowded is if you have a week of great conditions. Most people blow their sick days early and even if it remains good the slopes will empty out later in the week.

Depending on the resort, it gets pretty empty out in Tahoe during those kind of days. A lot of the people are foreign tourists.

Thanks for the info guys.

I'm headed to Wachusett tomorrow hoping to spend the better part of a day and practice a lot in the park. I'll leave an update tomorrow night saying how crowded or uncrowded it was for those interested.
