If you came up from denver and arrived any time past 8:30am the only person you can blame is yourself for not waking up early enough. Quit your bitching and buy a bc setup. I got up to the top of peak 10 and saw on 2 other lines minus my friends in 6" of pow.
It's funny to me how many people get defensive on here about "their" mountain. I don't care if you were on the first chair, everything was skied out by 10, and the lines were backed up for days.
Not bothering with the Basin next year. Not until it gets dropped from the Epic pass.
The haters on here are hilarious, this state is NOT overcrowded it's may 10th who the hell do you think you are wonder woman? A Bay's the only resort left open in Colorado and you wanna go to Tahoe, Vermont, or the PNW? Be my guest, you're not gonna see any snow coverage close to what we've still got here. Ashley and anonymous have it right, the snow is badass, if you're too lazy to get out of bed in time to get a parking spot, then maybe you should go bask in the 83 degree weather in Vermont, and get out of my beautiful state boomer.
Today was awesome, fluffy about 8" deep, was snowing lightly all day so with any luck it will be refilled in the morning. It was a holiday Sunday, fresh powder and the only place open, suck it up haters and wake up earlier
Wow! A surprising number of crybabies posting here. If you don't like the crowds, grow a pair and head into the backcountry. Today, was a truly awesome day out there. Yes it was crowded, but if you hiked a bit, the east wall was open one patrol opened it. staff did an amazing job today at the basin keeping things on order despite the deluge of people. Well done.
