Just to avoid confusion on the day of, I can pre-purchase a lift ticket online? But do I still have to wait in a ticket line to get the pass?
For anyone else wondering. I pre-purchased a lift ticket online. Unfortunately the weather was a bit iffy so I didn't do it until the morning so I still had to wait in the line for the ticket window to get my pass (about 15 minutes). If I would have done it the night before I could have just picked up my pass at the red tent where there was no wait at all, and got into the lift line.
I rode on Thursday, the Fitz chair was down so all traffic was on the Gondola. The first couple of runs there was only about a 15 minute wait, by about 2pm it was around 30 minutes or so. Doing peak to village runs made it not so bad and the nice long runs were good for getting acquainted with the new bike. I got off mid-station and took the Garbo chair up one run, I think I was the only one doing that as I didn't see another person on the garbo chair all day.
I didn't ride Friday (took a bit of a spill and tweaked my ankle/knee at the end of Thursday) but the Fitz was still down and the gondola lines were substantial from what I saw wandering around the village in the afternoon.
Conditions were really, really good though. I don't think I've ever seen such a lack of braking bumps ever.
