I visited Stratton on Tuesday, the 15 of Feb. 2011. It was a cold day, but plenty of sunshine. The wind didn't help, but conditions were quite good for such a frgid day. The advantage of skiing at Stratton on a weekday is the non-existence of lift lines. I did not wait in line for more than 2 minutes and often rode the chair alone. The variety of trails is what also make Stratton a great destination.
