Incredibly Long lift lines even on weekdays

Full review

The lift line for KT22 was the biggest lift line I have ever waited in,,waited 3 hrs one day for it to open ,,only 2 other lifts running that day so that was the best slopes available that day,,Had to be 500 people daily in line ,the locals get there at 7 to start lining up,,unbelievable.and I'm talking weekdays,, The scoop is that they sold the season pass to locals for $360,and everyone in a hundred mile radius bought it and nobody works there so they all show up for the powder days,,can't blame them!! I totally agree with the guy who said they (the local powder hounds)are all stuck on themselves, they think there better than U,he hit the nail right on the head!! Squaw is awesome,had a great stay,place we stayed(plumpjack inn) was awesome and very accommodating, ski patrol did a great job keeping the mt safe(blasting etc) and getting slopes open seeing that there was 6 ft or so the week we were there.The night life was dead weekdays but got better on the weekends,,Food was great and very affordable...All in all EPIC trip ,,some of the best terrain I've ever seen,but the waiting in line took alot of the pleasure out of it..Would go back if they put the season pass back to $1500
