great snow for once!! great terrain, no lines at lifts (on certain parts of mountain)
good timing is required for good conditions
i love this place when the snow is good, and the snow has been good this year!! the massive amount of terrain will help disperse the crowds, so you won't have to wait in lines - - with the exception of the main beginner areas and sometimes the capitan lift. Also, the management has done better this year at keeping the lifts running.. i was HUGELY disappointed last year when i made the trip up there and my favorite lift going to the top of the mountain was non-operational.. i had to wait in the massive lines for the gondola to get to the top. this time it was SOOO much better. I'M GLAD I GAVE SKI APACHE ANOTHER CHANCE THIS YEAR.
