Meh. I am rarely there before 10.30 unless there has been a tonne of pow. I guess that comes from having it on my doorstep for the last 5 years.
Trouble is if you show up after 9:30 or so (on weekends) you're likely parking way down the road. And then lift lines are getting bad... I like to show up first thing, park in a good spot, get up the hill and do a warmup lap or two, then head for the back when the crowds start to arrive.
Weekdays are another story, it's just mellow there.
Best sun in the back bowls is around 11:00 I'd say.
