How bad are they really? The resort I'm from in the midwest it's not uncommon to see shit like this on the weekend and wind up waiting anywhere from 15-30 minutes for a 2 minute run:
I hit up Park City and the Canyons pretty much every year and have been to Brighton and Solitude once or twice. We usually go in mid winter or spring break. I hear crowds are bad after Christmas, which obviously means no ski-right-on lift lines, but how bad do the lines really get? Would it be worth it coming out or am I just going to get frustrated with all the gapers and joeys from Texas?
